    I don't know what to make of this, your thoughts?
    Wow. Well, I think it's safe to assume there's no sparring at THAT school. If the kid was so squeamish he couldn't even get yelled at without being embarrassed to the point of quitting, could you imagine what'd happen if he took a smack to the face?

    There was definitely the stank of McDojo'ism on that school, too. Three Black Tips for a Red Tip. Belts and Advanced Belts. Annual contracts paid in advance. That said, $1300 for a year's worth of training isn't a bad price, compared to a lot of the McDojos out there.

    Altogether, the fat kid doesn't need martial arts-- he needs to stop being a pampered mama's boy.

    Some people have a higher expectation that their children will be treated well. I'm sure that if this guy had acted like he had for 4 years there would have been no problem. The teacher is in the wrong and probably should have apologized and explained why they didn't get their stripes, or whatever the fark they call em. My guess is he was upset about life and decided to be a douche bag on this particular night.

    If the kid was a serial whiner, he probably wouldn't have lasted 4 years, don't you think?

    That being said his mom should have tried to mediate better, between her son and the teacher, but damn right she should be able to get her tuition back. Was there talk of damages? I didn't get that....

    This BS the McDojo world tries to continuously lay on people about not getting their money back, by saying it's customary, is just crap. Even if the contract states it, it's not always what the laws of the land will support.

    You need some more facts:

    Stella Liebeck, 79, received third-degree burns over 6 per cent of her skin, and lesser burns on 16 per cent. She required skin grafts, and a further two years of treatment.

    During the trial, it was revealed that McDonald's policy was to keep their coffee at 180190 F (8288 C), which would cause third degree burns in two to seven seconds. In a 10-year period, McDonald's had received 700 reports of scalding injuries from their coffee.

    The parties settled out of court, for less than $600,000.


    Just ain't such a fun story when you actually have some facts, eh?

    Actually, it's still quite a fun story, because even considering the extent of her injury, and even considering that other morons had done it before, the woman still got more than a half-million dollars because she was stupid enough to drive with hot coffee between her thighs.

    The woman acted foolishly and irresponsibly, and earned herself $500,000 and international acclaim for it.
