    I showed you the link and let you be the judge for yourself basically. I was merely trying to open broaden the knowledge of this board by bringing info to the forums. Sorry if it was a failure.

    The failure was in the lack of due diligence on your part. For instance, mostly the people on this site don't care about McDojoism if it is readily admitted.

    As far as Bullshido and Fraud, you need more than just a website. You need to go down to the school and check it out. Does the guy have a certifiable lineage? Is he claiming expertise or certification where he has none? Is he claiming his hola-dancing is the new deadly or just a cultural way to get in shape? What exactly makes you say that it is Bullshido? What are examples of specific fraud?

    You are a noob and when I was a noob I made the same mistake. So I am being nice to you and letting you know why people here may not respect your posts or attempt to broaden the forums horizons. Before you call Bullshido on someone or a school the members of this forum typically expect you to be able to answer most of the above questions.

    And who the hell are you and credentials do you have to pretend you are in the capacity of broaden someone's knowledge?

    And what melk said. If you want to contribute, do you work and due diligence. If you thought this was a place where you can fling poop at someone without doing the necessary work to present your case, you fail.

    I did go down and see them personally. He seems to be a nice guy really its just that his advertisements are around quite a lot here and I don't really agree that with his limited knowledge that he is all that he says he is. I did not see a certificate of lineage. He has this statue of Kwang Kun or something like that. He makes his students bow to him before entering or leaving the class. Next time I will do better on a post. I often learn from my mistakes sorry.

    In almost every TMA you bow to the instructor before entering or leaving class. Most Kung Fu Dojos have alters/statues. Adverts and your opinions don't make fraud. Please understand that a good number of people come to this site to investigate schools they are thinking about going to or sending their kids to. So trash talking someone without solid evidence can actually negatively affect them and be just as much, if not more of a fraud.

    Still, did you ask to see the certificates or ask for his linage.

    So, is he competition?

    How long have you studied Shaolin-Do?

    Are you looking to leave?

    You know SD is in the same boat as you are placing this guy?

    I'm going to avoid the loaded questions. As for the other MA classes. As far as I know, other than the wing chun and "Freestyle class", they have their own dedicated instructors. Here is the main reason they are not McDojo: The owner has it setup so his direct students can take the other classes for free. Whatever the instructor wants to charge the students only showing up to his class he keeps.

    You couldn't be more wrong. Those are the corner stones of Bullshido.

    The site has some serious bullshido in text format. Notice the testimonials section. The owner of the school is Kevin Kawada, correct? and the only apparent testimonial is by Kevin Kawada....wtf? and he says "ever since i enrolled my family in your Kung fu school..." so he's the head of the school but its not his, who's is it. and yeah that video was a perfect example of compliant useless drilling.
