Their message board is still broken, as it has been since the first incident.

Yeah, but they still have their 'Greatest Hits' archive from the old bulletin board (and it's about what you would expect i.e. a bunch of KCD students kissing John Perkin's ass). They also have a pretty cheesy endorsement quote from Sgt Major Haney, which I'm sure he probably regrets making by now.

Funny you mention KCD, I was browsing the Border's bookstore in Reno the other night and wouldn't you guess it, right there in the Martial Arts section is a copy of "Attackproof". Seriously, I almost bought it just to get it out of circulation before that **** gets someone killed.

I need a jury of my peers so I can start shoplifting all the Ashida Kim books at the local Indigo.

Amen, broter, then when you get all the ninja books, maybe you can grab all those goddamn Dillman pressure-point fighting books as well. . .

It's like the published form of "If you are having to learn it here, you must not be training in the first place".

Simco is BJJ's version of Matt Fury. the reality of their skills and the marketing of them are WAAAAY different

Well, I did my good deed of the day. I had some time to kill after Judo class, so I went by the Barnes and Noble in Pensacola. In the Martial Arts section, they had a Gene Simco book, two Ashida Kim Ninjutsu books and a "Developing your Chi" book by William Cheung. I hid the Gene Simco book in the New Age section and stashed the Chi book and the two Ashida Kim volumes in the Gay and Lesbian section. They didn't have any copies of "Attackproof" or I would have hidden those worthless things in the Weight Loss section.


Just doing my small bit to stamp out Bullshido. . .

Hah, you made me laugh.

In a Borders I once saw Cheung's book on "Developing your Chi", so I showed the book to my dad who was in the store while talking very loudly about how I saw Cheung get grappled on video and how, "HE WAS COMPLETELY HELPLESS, DAD! IT WAS HILARIOUS! I CAN'T BELIEVE ANYONE WOULD BUY THIS BOOK."

I managed to get a couple people to stare at me.

Man your dad must have been laughing his ass off, as for the bystanders at least they know the guys a fraud.........

To be honest gang I have been so wrapped-up in my own little world I had no idea how much bullshido was going on in the REAL world. It boggles ones mind!!

It would be nice if whenever someone uses the search header "Martial Arts" Bullshido comes up as the most likely search match.

Im almost thinking about writing a book "Bullshido" this site would be a damn good resource

there certainly is a danger as far as 'Bullshidoism' or mcdojos are concerned the reasons are obvious.

You might want to run that by the guy that owns the site.
