    How to tell if your Sifu is a fraud?

    A few years ago I read an article online with a title like that...or "How to tell that your Martial Art is BS"....

    It had a list if things like 'you learn the higher level secret moves after you are in the school for a while'. Your teacher had a falling out with his teacher so he started his own style and made himself grandmaster...

    Does this ring a bell with anyone?
    I tried to Goigle but didn't find anything.
    I'm sure I'm not remembering enough detail to search properly.

    Some men just are not meant to be in the same room with one another once they have visited the moons of Jupiter .

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    What's wrong with "Goigle"? ;)
    Posting from an iPhone so I get interesting typos...

    I'll find that article.
    Was well written as I recall

    The best way is to politely ask to have a challeng of a bare knuckle fight. its best if you provide a notarized wavier of legal remedy in the event you lose preventing you from sueing him. It works even better if you also agree to pay all outstanding payments due upon losing. If he refuses, he is a fraud. If he smiles and says sure, run, run like the wind. at least you will know.
    When You absolutely have to hide a body...try Alaska.

    If you ever find yourself uttering the words, "My Sifu says......" in place of "My Sifu does...."

    If your Sifu has a mug that says 'World's Best Sifu' on it - and he bought it for himself.
