As the thread title suggests, I have two enquiries.

First of all, what the hell does NSFW mean? National Socialist Fuckwit? Not Safe for Women?!!?

Secondly, does anyone have any knowledge of good MA places in perth, WA. Also which places over here that I need to avoid like the plague.
Thanks.

In spite of what some other web-sites would have you believe, we here at Bullshido.net welcome you, Ryan Platts, with open arms and hope that you will share with us your unique experiences and ideas on the martial arts.... so that we may then make fun of those experiences and ideas.

that makes a lot more sense than national socialist fuckwit. It got me wondering for a while there- what the "hottest girls in the world" thread had to do with extreme right-wing small-man overcompensationalism, for example-but as of today, I can go forth and prosper in the knowledge that I don't have to join the SS to get laid (Those snazzy black uniforms certainly rake in the ladies, however). cheers.

Nope, but in general the same rules apply everywhere. If their instructor's webpage lists more than a handful of ranks and styles studied, its BS. If the instructor calls himself shihan, soke, grandmaster, or claims something higher than 5 dan/degree be highly suspect. If they go on and on about how deadly their art is, start in on death touch/dim mak, or use either of the previous for reasons they don't spar, its BS.

A crude list of arts that have good reputations:
any kind of boxing and kickboxing
Kyokushin karate
Judo
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu
Kali/Arnis/Filipino Martial Arts
Sanda
anything else that trains hard & with resistence

Stuff to stay away from:
most traditional martial arts from any nation
anything with an animal in its name
anyplace that doesn't spar
anything too flashy
