The Happeh Pseudoscientific Method, part Ad Nauseum.
After almost a decade on the internet, It is my firm believe that there is a plan to spread lies about the practice of Kung Fu. It is my belief that this article is part of that plan.
Sir. You arrogance is breathtaking. So many of your statements are flat out wrong, that you should be ashamed to have written such a piece. As I cannot quote your article, I will point out a few of the more egregious errors in your piece.
"my teachers didn't really have a clue what science was all about."
This sentence is typical "young'un". The young person thinks they know more than the old people. It is my position that the remainder of this article demonstrates that the writer is the person who does not know anything.
"The justification for a stupid looking move should not be 'scientific' or based on some twisted logic of fighting ('always attack down the centreline')"
First off some advice. If you expect people to respect you and your opinions, don't call things "stupid looking moves". Right off the bat the reader knows you have negative emotions for your subject that are mostly likely biasing all of your statements.
Could you please explain why you, a child of the modern age, feel that "centerline theory is some twisted logic of fighting". Centerline theory was developed by people who lived in a kung fu atmosphere back in the day. You are a child that lives in an age of cars, sitting in front of a TV, and guns. Why do you feel your opinion of centerline theory, an opinion based on a few years of experience maybe, has more validity than the opinion of much older men with years of kung fu experience, living in a world where kung fu was constantly used for self defense?
"As an example of how bad I eventually discovered the understanding of my instructors was - the older instructors really believed that if you had the correct stance, you would not experience a reactionary force when blocking/punching your opponent. If you have any scientific education, you should know this is a gross distortion of reality and is basically really really wrong"
Sir. This is so incredibly wrong that it completely destroys your credibility and makes the rest of your article worthless. Your opinion is meaningless because this point is so wrong.
Sir. You claim to be studying to be a scientist. Could you please state your age, how many years of schooling you have, what your major is, what classes you have taken that you feel apply to this subject, and the grades you recieved these classes.
Sir. I believe the answer to the above questions will reveal you are a young 20 something who is only starting an education. With your partial education, you are jumping to conclusions you are not qualified to make. Your education is only beginning, which means you are being quite audacious in citing it as a reason for people to accept what you say.
AH HA! And then after that statement about how the instructors are wrong, you never explain why. That is because you can't explain why they are wrong can you?
This cements my belief this is another article meant to spread lies about real kung fu.
Sir. After the comment above, your article completely peters out, like urine changing from full pressure to a dribble as you finish urinating.
If that is all you have, you should be hiding under your bed in embarrassment at what you have written.
If you were my student, you would get an F for that paper. Maybe a D if I was feeling in a good mood. You make claims that are unsupported, you insult people and do not back it up.
This is basically BullShido hate, under a banner that says "scientific discussion"
Sir. If you can eloquently and intelligently express yourself, I will either take you and your article apart, or I will correct you and your article.
