    I think this statement is just like the one ):( (sp?) accused Peedeeshaloin of.

    This is just something to say to feel good about yourself.

    Let's just put it all together

    '99 percent of Martial Arts suck, and 99 percent of the people in them suck'

    Just keep telling yourself that over and over to make yourselves look better guys.

    Do you guys really think that putting down the MA masses in general will make YOU a better fighter?

    You two seem to think so.

    I'd give my number one useless vote to Bujinkan. No question at all.

    Number 1 most useless?

    Okinawa-Te Karate.

    Reasons (from personal experience):
    A) McDojo+
    B) Let mentally retarded (no I'm serious, not being offensive) person reach dan ranking and teach classes.
    C) So points fighting oriented that they teach their students to punch with a loose fist because it makes you faster - after all, theres no contact, so why bother clenching the fist?
    D) Senior (Blue/Brown belt) instructors in their 20s getting kicked and punched to hell and back by 13 and 14 year olds at their first class.

    Pity they don't have a website to laugh at...

    Second vote would be for TKD. Even half a world away from the USA, TKD sucks. My friend/sparring partner trained for 3 years in what was supposed to be non-sport orinted TKD. Took a year of Muay Thai before he could get rid of the crap technique he was taught and start doing some damage. I have lost count of how many ex-TKD people I have trained with who have left the style after cross training and finding out they couldn't compare with beginners at other clubs.
    Lots of people mention the TKD/Korean Military connection. Well, from the 2 Korean (non-military) TKD exponents I have sparred fought/trained very different to non-Korean TKD. Much better and more power.

    But the military thing is a non-starter. Its in another thread here regarding the US Marines I think, that in the modern military hand to hand is primarily taught as an agression and mindset building exercise. Military CQC is crap anyway - if it wasn't the instructors wouldn't all be studying everything else they could. Its a quick nasty system designed to give you a quick nasty mind set while stabbing people through the lung from behind. They always try and work hand to weapon - CQC knife fighting is another story (especially Spetsnaz). To sum up - if you are in a hand to hand situation in the military with no weapon and no mates there, you have fucked up bigtime.
    Sociopaths are people too.

    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.
