Because my friends girlfriend took a course of it in college and it amounted to her screaming "No!!!" and hammer fisting to the groin. Two things you don't need a course to teach and would still end up getting you killed anyways.

I just hate you.

God I love Bullshido.

You know, I know some of these comments keep new members away and that's just shameful. I've been lurking around enough to understand this, so I don't get insulted easily, and though the bulk of my study is in Muay Thai I do have some "enrichment" classes (so to say) in Krav Maga so I wanted to see why people hate it so much.

8/10/2006 9:45am,
because reality based self defense is anything but.

8/10/2006 9:53am,
Because many people use it as an excuse not to do any actual fighting?

8/10/2006 10:03am,
Because RBSD has meddled with the fundamental laws of nature Mr. Beal, and RBSD will ATONE!

I don't "hate" RBSD exactly, but here are some common nuances I've noticed with RBSD proponents.

1) They tend to be fat and out of shape.

2) They tend to make excuses for #1 because "a real fight won't last long" and other BS.

3) They tend not to spar or do any kind of regular, contact work, because "it develops bad habits" and the like.

4) They tend to sneer at "sports fighters". Granted, some sportsfighters are probably sneer-worthy, but listening to some fat SOB insult a well-conditioned athlete's fighting skills when said RBSD dude has never "stepped up" to the ring is annoying.

5) They tend to be "text book" fighters in that they learn from seminars, books, and (maybe) a good instructor, but again they never or rarely spar/fight/roll, and yet consider their training and skills superior to every other type of training.

6) One name: Phil Elmore -- who is pretty much guilty of all of the above and likes to runs his mouth alot.

Now, every stereotype has their exceptions. I'm also sure we could all put together a similar list for each stereotype. (TMA guys, Ninjas, and yes, BJJ Nutriders, for example). An RBSD guy that is in good shape, spars/rolls regularly and cross-trains would likely be well-respected here. Strangley, I'm not sure we've come across any -- I can't think of any off-hand, anyway.
