    Know who you are talking to instead of swallowing your foot. Addressing admins, without knowledge, makes you look very ignorant.

    And I ain't Lecturing.
    Bullshit.

    I don't think it's FAIR-especially as an Admin here to disrespect any style and openly discourage anyone from learning. I would be advocating QUALITY instruction--of course which burden lies in the student. Plenty of help here though from what I seen so far today.
    This is you not reading the website and assuming what goes on. This is a fact unlike your uniformed opinion.

    IIF: I've never asked, cause I don't think its my business, but I hope you get well compensated for this. How much can a person take of this limitless crappery?

    Seriously, if not $$, then at least heavily discounted online meds like dialaudid, royphnol or something...
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    Kids are in school all day, I work nights.

    This is all volunteer and fun.

    Every time we get someone out of, or stop them from starting, bullshido it makes it worth every dumbass thread I read or derail.

    Heck, even changing a few perceptions, in training, and they stay with a crappy art is a win in my book.

    I also only post regularly here. I hit maybe two other websites with maybe 1000 posts total.

    I think this is a fundamental mistake. By watching a demo video, you can get a feel for what the proponents claim and presumably hope, wish, or believe the general style of the martial art is. But that is not necessarily true. For instance, even when aikido techniques are made to work, they are never going to look the least bit like compliant aikido demos because real-world assailants are not going to spontaneously somersault at the first hint of a wrist lock.

    In other words, to get a feel for what the style of the martial art in action really is, you have to be assured that what you see in demos resembles real application. Unfortunately, you need to see it in action first before you can reasonably make that call.

    I'm pretty sure that clears up the air for me, insofar as authoritative argumentation goes.

    And you seriously wonder why people would be upset with you for correcting their technique?
