    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Seriously, 1.2? You're trying to argue that what you were doing isn't this?

    THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TRYING TO WARN YOU PEOPLE ABOUT!

    That was god awful where are these people? I need to thank them for sparking my fire to dojo storm again.

    As was I. This is why it was an issue for me. This is why I argued about students being worse off for learning the wrong things from an incompetent rather than to learn nothing at all.

    I think that a failure to distinguish between non-alive, pseudo-mystical, totally-made-up groundfighting such as this, and a karate school that happens to train a bare minimum of bridge escapes, scissor sweeps, and RNCs, is intellectual dishonesty.

    This, and your willfulness to be ignorant regarding the difference, makes it unlikely that anyone will try to convince you otherwise.

    I think your summary of Sirc's argument is questionable. He sees a common problem with what you did and what these guys do, and Mr. Galt underscored the commonality with his remarks, which came immediately before Sirc's. A similarity is not an equivalence.

    For all I know he does equate them, but you do not have enough evidence to indicate that. I think you have a habit of finding some interpretation of any criticism that puts you in the position of being the injured party and then generate outrage to protect yourself from that criticism. If you are doing that, stop; it makes you a liability to your students, past and future, and to this forum.

    You have the self-pity of some of the worst bullshidoka we've investigated, a near-psychopathic disregard for the harm you've done to others in favor of any sense of grievance you cna manufacture on your own behalf. Less self-justifying passive-aggressive bullshit, more realizing what you did wrong and why.

    You're not one of the good guys.

    Why, exactly, should they learn basic techniques from a shitty instructor who has no business teaching them anyway, that they won't use because they don't do any sparring anyway? What exactly do they gain from learning **** they won't use in sparring, when that **** is beyond sub-par anyway?

    Yup, made up BS. I actually talked to these guys and they are as stupid as they look. They worship this John Wilson guy like he's a god. lol So they had a couple guys try their hand at local MMA bouts. Wanna guess what happens? Yup, that elbowing the knee didn't work out, neither did anything else. Did got their asses handed to them fast. Surprise!!! Anyways, they talk tough and Lee Smith and Jason Steeves were working security at the local chapter of HA strip bar. A local, and very rich, dealer gave them trouble and they both walked away with their tails between their legs and promptly got fired. They live in a fantasy world. Its scary.

    challenges

    SO I contacted these turkeys, and apparently the instructors' son said that they are willing to take challangers!! They produced MMA champions and Judo champions he said. Scary **** right there. SO I asked for records of these fights cause I heard they lost many fights, but hey, if they're willing... I guess you can walk into one of these dojos and challenge a bozo to a fight. Might be interesting.
