Came across this video today. I had my doubts about it as I've see a few videos drop the ball on their opinion about what is a Mcdojo. What you guys think?

Good find. I think it’s a pretty comprehensive list.

My only minor quibble- which may be more specific to my area- would be the lineage (or lack thereof) argument.

I’d say pretty much all of the TKD schools around me have verifiable lineages and over qualify as mcdojos.

He did qualify his statements, I just notice- at least around me- most if not all of the mcdojos have a verifiable lineage. It seems to be one of their selling points.

You’re up the coast a bit. Different in your area?

Well he did qualify his statement by stating 'if they have most of these checked off' instead of having all of these.

I think it's excellent, though more applicable to the US than Europe.


Shouldn't no touch sparring have been included?

What the **** is no touch sparring?? You either spar or you don't. Air doesn't count.

Don't ask me AFAIK it's an American thing. First time I heard about it it was an American exchange student asking if I knew any karate clubs that were into that
. I managed not to laugh in her face, she was in the wrong (namely Jon Bluming)country

He did mention chi balls and no touch knockouts, though.

Great video, by the way. Most of what he mentioned applies to Brazilian McDojos as well.

You'd also want to look out for claims of an inordinate number of high ranks, extensive MMA career, teaching a self-founded style, mixing up cultures, e.g. naming a kung fu school after a Greek myth...

Even worse would be a Kung Fu school naming themselves after Norse/Old Germanic Religious Gospel/traditions. The culture appropriation of my peoples traditions and warrior culture by Asians is ridiculous and out of hand.
