    Hello Jutal/Troll,

    Since you apparantly have just started two threads about this guy. It looks like your video thread is also him.

    What do you have against him?

    Well Jutal from what I gather you are a student/ex-student of Mr. Goninan, and seem to have a vendetta against him for whatever reason with your goal being having the BSD crew ripping him apart for acts of bullshidoery.

    I really don't care what your issue is with him, but if you feel he's worth being thrown into the spotlight, do your own research and make a well thought out article as to why he's BS/Mcdojo/whatever and let the discussion take place from there. If you're a student or even better, an ex-instructor of his you'd make a great person to throw up some first-hand experience with him.

    This is rather an old post but if your still around "Jutal" I'd be happy to answer your questions as I am Ron Goninan!

    And yes I do hold true to some "controversial" views regarding the state of the martial arts.:new_shock

    Welcome to Bullshido Ron ( assuming you are not a troll pretending to be ) . Since Jutal seemed to have a very short posting career , I would like to ask what is so controversial ?

    Did you make up a bunch of forms and claim they came from ancient Chinese scrolls ? Do you not have a lineage with the right people ? Are you a homosexual ? Do you propagate violence against women and children ? Do you like to fight and pressure test your system ?

    What could be so "controversial" about your White Crane or your views ?

    Hello BackFist Monkey,

    Yes it is indeed me and not some troll. I only recently came across this thread by "Jutal" (whoever he/she may be) and thought that I'd offer a brief reply.

    I guess what makes my views "controversial" is that they are not in step with the popular arts, I have not set out to be controversial but to simply express my views. I am anti ranks, titles and other such bullshit, I don't subscribe to the normal approach to TMA, I think that Karate styles that claim a link to White Crane are full of **** and have no clue, "Hakutsuru" is just a form of Karate with a few crane-like moves thrown in!


    I hope this helps you understand in some small way.
