    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Biggest BS MA Article you have seen..

    to me, it was some alien type of martial art where the guy claims he was trained by aliens and had greater than chi type abilities. I also know the trs are probally a bunch of bs to an extent though if I did get them, I would look around and buy it for the novelty value...

    It was a 3rd party advert for some greek pankration jim aravanti dude. I don't think he approved the ad, as the ads on his site aren't quite so hyperbolic. it said something like "This martial art is NOT for the faint of heart. Throats are torn out like paper, heads are crushed like cans of beans, and it will totally destroy your opponent. This martial art is used by SPECIAL FORCES, who don't have time to spend SECONDS doing a karate or jujutsu joint lock and simply need to DESTROY their opponents". Actually, i think i might be thinking of two entirely different scams, but they were both very much the same.

    Presumably, you have what the kids here would call t3h r34l knife disarm... it goes something like "DROP THE KNIFE OR I WILL SHOOT YOU, ************."

    The local Y were I used to live advertised traditional Okinawan Karate for self defense. Figured I'd give it a shot. The first class involved us hitting and kicking the air and chambering our fists. Didn't seem like self defense to me. Does that count?

    A local gym here actually teaches the anti-grapple or as they call it...

    Every month Martial Arts Illustrated in the UK has at least one complete bullshit article on MA.

    Are we talking BS because the martial art in question is BS, or because the quality of the journalism is poor?
