    I know the secret instructors hand shake I can infiltrate them lol. btw I am not joking there is a secret hand shake.

    The system seems to based on a form of Shuri/Tomari Te Karate judging from the techniques and naming and also he was said to have trained in Shotokan. Stances are the same and given same names as Shotokan and only strikes and blocks are given Japanese names whereas throws and locks usally are not. In WA we are also taught Small Circle Jujutsu (only style that is named that I am aware off) plus a bunch of other random stuff from other arts which he may or may not have experience in and stuff he probally just made up.

    If you have not already check out their Facebook page for more videos and pictures including their take on grappling.

    I made the comment like in relation to Mountainous and Ralph Severe, and got sent to Sheer Dog Siberia.

    But seriously.... Maybe for some people it is enough to get together and enjoy the physical activity, even if the outcome is not high-end capability. If they need some live action role play to help get them out of the house and get some exercise, good for them. They are actually getting some physical exercise and social interaction..... Put down that video game and get off the couch! (Public Service Announcement.)

    If it is held in that context, then is it so bad?
    Sure but why the hell can't they just jog or play bocce? Stop shitting on MA.

    Or join a LARP group at the local anime/historical club if they really want to dress up and act like fictional/historical characters.

    I'll be happy to defend certain defensible aspects of the Booj when it's worth doing, but doing so over a small insult in a thread about an obviously bad, LARPy neo-ninjutsu school seems like a poor strategic choice.

    I didn't realize Booj Apologist was a rotating role on Bullshido. Would I get a Tag? (Er, would I want it?) You're just teasing me, right?

    I'd step up to the plate if this was even decent karate. It's not. I'm seeing waaaaaay too much space between participants doing techniques.
    And why bother disguising yourself when you are screaming like an idiot?

    They should be wearing Clown make-up and krumping.

    Just like the phantom!! every generation (in the case of the phantom) one comes along to defend the tradition... we need a rotating defender some one who wears the tag for a year or so at a time.

    No the defense has to be unconditional. If a person is too persistant they must be shima waza'd with a pair of Hatsumii's priestly hakuma ties.
    This thread never was a high quality conversation - My friend vern Gilbert on the William Acquier thread.

    Lebell, in refercence to your comment, I had to have the volume turned off.

    But, even if they were extolling the virtues of their program, lots of supposed "martial arts" after school programs offer defense training, discipline, drug proofing, and other things as a by-product of participating. It doesn't mean it is true.

    And by the higher standards many people who particpate in this forum attain, are after school programs really martial arts, or, are these self-defense programs really just theme clubs? I'd suggest that these kinds of activities are themed exercise programs and not traditional military skills (martial arts) or combatives programs at all.

    Instead of reacting at them, maybe holding them as a separate category might help. Once I came to that way of thinking, it got easier.

    Also, if someone is seriously interested in the martial arts and they come to some odd group that is not on target, usually they end up moving on to a better school. So, in a sense, programs like this one bleed off the ineffective and non-serious. They end up staying in clubs like this because it suits them.

    I had a very smart and good pastor who understood people. His qoute was, "Cults bleed off the whackos." In that, divergent groups draw off the people who would create trouble for the church. By parallel, could you imagine people like this in your dojo? So themed excercise clubs like this might be serving a useful purpose in the larger scheme of things.
