    How would you define "tradition martial arts?" What arts would be included?

    Also, how would you preserve the "credibility" of martial arts? What arts would be "credible" to you?

    I had been wondering why this reminded me so much about playing Nintendo with my little brother when I was just a little kid, and I finally got it:

    Every time I hear the words martial arts and boarding school used together, this is the picture that comes to mind.

    I'm just going to take this moment to berate the original post in this thread because I foolishly didn't take the chance to do so previously:

    Are you fuckin' with me, dude? Are you going to start introducing chi powers once the premise starts to run thin and the entire facade of an educational institution is reduced to backgrounds?

    Fuckin' A. Don't forget to make sure to only admit women with gigantic tits and make the dress code "Low-cut and revealing only".

    P.S. You're a retard. Go wrist-lock yourself into oncoming traffic.

    There was a kyokushin school in my neck of the woods that used to offer a program like that. Looks like they shitcanned it. I've kept my eye on this one for a few years. It always seemed a bit shady / creepy.

    They have this in Japan and I think Korea too. It's called college, as in the academic institute you can go for further education after high school. You can get actual degrees in Judo if you go to the right school and are good enough. I doubt the OP is anywhere near the standard needed to get in.

    Wow someone with a very similar user name started a thread about 2 months ago that had that very same link. Curious.

    Also, how can you say that there are boarding schools in California that are like that and most of them are in different countries.
