RATINGS: How Do Aliveness.....does your school look like this?
OK, probably the biggest confusion in these reviews is how to rate your particular schools "Aliveness".
I have made it easy for you. Below is the Aliveness rating scale and a video of the type of contact or training that corresponds to that rating.
You now have no excuse when I decide to delete your review and stamp your avatar with an "Interwebs Doofus" label for rating your Wushu or Tai Chi school a 10.......so here it is.
1: No sparring/contact, performance demonstration/forms only.
YouTube - XMA Mike Chat
YouTube - HIMAC 2007 Karate Form
Sorry, that last one just cracked me up...
2-3: Compliant partner drills, board breaking, point sparring
YouTube - Wing Chun - Chi Sao fast and slow mo
YouTube - Women's self defense simple step
YouTube - Combat Tai Chi
YouTube - Excellent Aikido Demonstration
4-5: Light contact continuous sparring (negligible pain/risk).
YouTube - karate sparing
6-7: Medium contact with excessive safety gear.
YouTube - TAE-KWON-DO Tornado Kick!!!!!
YouTube - Full Contact Sparring (American Kickboxing) 2 R2
8-9: Hard contact with reasonable safety gear and/or limited to one range of fighting (standup/grappling).
YouTube - David BASS 4th Match at BJJ PAN AM 2008 (Alliance BJJ NYC)
YouTube - Huge Boxing K.O 4
YouTube - Muay Thai KO
YouTube - Boxing Kangaroo
Don't **** with the Kangaroo BIATCH!!!!
10: Regular (monthly or less) skill testing via full contact, full range fighting, minimum safety equipment.
Bas set to Big Pun.....hellzzzz yea!!!!
So, there it is......You now have no excuse to rate your XMA training as a 10.
"Yea, but GJ, my school doesn't wear the footy pads and we can Roshambo each other all we want"
Whatever, the scale is not perfect by any means. So, if you feel your TKD school matches the vids for a 6 or 7, give it the 6 or 7 and explain why you think it is a 6 or 7. I may think, whatever, your school is actually a 5, but I will not be nit picky on anything other than obvious infections of stupidity where you give your sons TKD school a 9 or a 10.

Been away awhile haven't you, black tony?
Since when is "less is more" been a reality considering MA training or health in general? There have been great leaps and bounds in the MA world since Karate was developed in Okinawa, might want to get with the times.
then post a vid of what training at your school looks like.

read wikipedia about bullshido and its bias/ scorn against various martial artists and styles not being mma schools. it is a haven for trolls. and constantly monitered by its members to keep a vigilante attitude toward its victims of its so- called investigations, soorry but mma is nothing more than some kind of self-ego aggrandizement of its members. its founder has attemted to place his website bullshido on to wikipedia and has been denied . read it for yourself .
Read richguerra's lies about his military service.

Oh and this entry right here?
Looks like the article is still on wiki.
I got to about 3 and noticed the translation for aliveness must have meant 'how close to a BJJ armbar does this school approximate', and was then able to guess the next flood of videos all the way to the end. Perhaps 'aliveness' should be rewritten as something else?
So it's a mere coincidence that Aikido happens to occupy the spot you stopped at, and that you're not at all upset that it apparently isn't as revered as you think it should be?
As for BJJ bias, most of the top end examples are actually striking arts, so I've no idea what the **** you're smoking...
Yes, because all of those striking videos approximate a BJJ Armbar./sarcasm
