Etiquette for challenges
So let's say I hypothetically wanted to kick the **** out of some of the McDojos in the local area.
Is there a procedure for challenges? Can you get them to throw down even if they're "t3h d34dly"? I ask simply because any of the challenges I've been in were amiable, more like the "Hey, you wanna fight?" "Yeah, sure. No biting or nutshots."
This is all hypothetical, of course. (wink wink)
Do a search and see how this has been discussed. What you are talking about is called dojo storming. We do not condone or give advice on how to conduct those shenanigans.
If you want to spar people in the alleged McDojos school you call, ask their permission, sign their waivers and see if they will allow you to spar.
Walk in. Tear down the picture of their master. Bust out nunckucks. Kicks ass.
How much more simple can it be?
(I suppose I would be a thug then, eh?)
I did do a search about this beforehand and didn't come up with much, but if you could point me to a relevant thread from way-back-when or something, that would be great.
You searched Dojo Storming? I doubt it.
dojo storming - Google Search
If you can call "a bunch of dipshits on messageboards" a lot, then I suppose I am full of ****.
See that link that says search in the upper right corner?
Click the link and put Dojo Storming in top search box.
The second thread will explain everything and why it is a no no. Hell, it even has a hint to a cautionary tale.
This explains the hold up on my "Dojo Stormer" tag.

but could we settle on a middle ground, where we agree it's ok to show up in someone's dojo with a boombox and a couple of friends in matching outfits, and challenge the locals to a dance fight?
Let us know how it goes when someone yanks a sword down from the wall and runs you through with it.
