    Maybe you should go whoop the ass of your last karate teacher, give us a bitchin' epilouge.
    That would rule, but I suspect the old teacher would say his strikes hit "jiu-jitsu pressure points".

    Amazing job, MrBadGuy. A winner is you! However, you should consider rewriting the ending so that it's a semi-ripoff of the last episode of "The Wonder Years," where you go around to all the crap schools you've ever been to and observe the classes with a wistful glint in your eye as the following internal monologue runs through your head:

    "Growing up happens in a heartbeat. One day you're enrolling at a Kuk Sool Won dojo, the next day you're training at a legit boxing gym. But the memories of a martial arts school stay with you for the long haul. I remember a place, a city, a McDojo like a lot of other McDojos, a backyard like a lot of other backyards, on a street like a lot of other streets. And the thing is, after all these years, I still look back... with wonder."

    Barring the wistfulness, you could simply write yourself as storming in and beating up all the teachers at those crap schools.

    On another note, I would like to suggest to the mods/forum leaders that we move this thread from "Your Martial Arts Sucks" to the "Bullshido Classics and Mega Threads" section. It deserves its own historic spot next to bunyip's "I've Started Training at a McDojo!" and other classic yarns... it shouldn't be allowed to languish between a bunch of crap threads in the YMAS backlog.

    So what will the next story be? I don't sleep well unless I get my bedtime story of bullshido and kicking ass.:angel8:

    Thank you MrBadGuy,

    Your posts have been educating and entertaining, that is a high bar to meet. Good luck in your journey.

    Of course you have shattered my adolescent Shotokan karate memories.
    Not really, because I remember the years of arm and leg bruises from hard blocking kumite.

    But that was many, many moons ago... before McDojos ruled the land.

    Hold on, didn't you mention Ninjitsu at one point? I was looking forward to that.

    Maybe for the director's cut?

    Thank you for sharing all of this. It has been really entertaining. +rep

    But after the BJJ adventures it got a little short on bums. Maybe you can combine this thread with your other one, adding delightful stories about bums in between the bulldinkietwinkies.

    What I've learned.

    The most powerful styles are, from best to worst:

    Boxing
    Self-taught drunken boxing from a pamphlet that admits it's made up
    Performance Wushu
    Kuk Sol Won
    BJJ
    Self-taught Bagua
    Shotokan Karate


    Clearly, if Mr. Bad Guy ever found the D3d1y REAL Drunken Boxing, we'd all be fucking doomed. He'd somersault into the UN General Assembly, kill everyone there, and install himself as the Earth's Boy King!
