    Times Herald Article: Bullshido in my Backyard

    I awoke this morning and went to work, to discover that the local paper had the top story about a martial arts tournament that happened at my highschool. Needless to say... it's bullshido.

    DIDN'T YOU KNOW?! The Chinese know everything! And they knew it 4,000 years before YOU did!

    Not only does the author know **** about martial arts, neither do the people who are learning it.

    Not.....working

    THese sorts of tournaments is Bullshido above anything else.

    I already had figured out by the first paragraph what sort of non-tournament it is before they even mention styles. Taekwondo +" Familyoriented"=Sport Karate.They both go hand and foot these day's.

    So do I. If I would have known, I would have came in and sat down with a tub of popcorn. It would be a riot to know you could probably wipe out half the people in the room.

    This is my favorite part of the article.

    "They don't want it to be an ugly, mean-spirited thing. That's one reason they don't call this a tournament, because you'll see lots of times in another type of tournament they're out to kill each other. They shouldn't be, but they're so competitive, like hockey or any other sport."
    God forbid your combative sport might end up being as competitive as hockey.

    ****, if breaking a few boards can raise $10,000 for a children's hospital, bring me some freakin' boards.
