    Martial Arts and Low Self Esteem: McDojo Fodder?

    Andy Kaufman, our resident NHB Intergender Champion suggested a possible link between the McDojo phenomenon and people with low self esteem in this article

    Here's a snippet:

    in general, martial arts attracts people with low self-esteem. the idea of being able to dispatch bullies and attackers through a special system of fighting techniques often lures those who feel inadequate about themselves. i am not implying that everyone who takes martial arts fits into this category. however, if you thought i was talking about you, you're probably right.

    I started studying martial arts because ninjas looked like playing outside. They were climbing trees, playing hide and seek and playing war. It looked cool.

    I would have gone into gymnastice but have you seen those fag looking leotards? The ones they wore back in the 80's were way worse.

    I think wrestling needs to think about getting better outfits. Wearing a singlet is really embarrassing.


      9chambers, hell yes on the singlets. Even the name sounds gay, and whenever you take a picture, you have to cover up your wang (usually with the earguards, unless your school was so ghetto you didn't get any).

      And that's what I call REAL Ultimate Power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
