These were the points Ballen made and labeled as nonsense. You picked up on them as if they were fact. Nobody made those claims. Aren't these nonsense remarks being directed at MAs other than BJJ guys? Agreed, here you specified your karate dojo. The rest of your comments slag off at all the schools that employ kata. The reason I take offence is that at a higher level of understanding than you possess, kata is karate. Every time you dis kata you are dissing karate, so it is not just your old school. Oh, I am sensitive. Most people would consider me a SNAG.
