Are you kidding? Surely you don't believe that's legitimate.
As to the race thing, being racist and calling a school a mcdojo are very different. You see, the mcdojo concept is a school with flawed training methods. It is legitimate to label a school mcdojo if it's instructors say things like the quote above.
Racism, on the other hand, is unjustified prejudice. An ethnicity is not inherently flawed.

When asked about cross training either Mobius or Vesper said there weren't any good places in Austin to go to. If they are interested they ought to check out the place I go to. There are boxing/kickboxing, Jeet Kun Do, and GJJ classes offered. This is by no means a challenge or ragging on your school. When I started the thread I made it clear I already went to a gym, but my brother in law wasn't interested in what I did. I just wanted others opinions on your school because it was one of the ones he liked and it had a website people here could check out. If either or both of you are interested post that you are and I'll post the name of where I go. I'm hesitant to post it unless asked cause I'm not sure if thats a breach of ettiquette. If you like it, cool; if not, sorry I wasted your time.

There are literally HUNDREDS of schools in the Austin area (including the suburbs), and I can assure you neither of these bakido guys knows which are good or not. There are PLENTY of crosstraining opportunities for those who seek them.
