    That makes at least your 4th ad hominem attack this morning. Do you really think that has any meaning to it? What purpose did you intend a comment about a marketing picture to serve?

    And you base that ad hominem attack on exactly what?

    Just wanted to clarify my rating your above post as informative. I did so because I think it informs me about something about you that I think is not useful. Same with some of answers to gpseymour. That is only my opinion of course, you or anyone else is free to disagree with reasons or not.

    The above is so weak. Is it the best you can do? Why not try to be constructive in a polite manner. Were you ever taught that? Or could you just not find a way to make that work?

    How can you be sure I'm the only one that feels like this?

    At that, even if I'm the only one that feels like this, does it invalidate my feelings? Are my feelings predicated on what everyone else thinks I should feel?

    Who are you to tell me the worth of my feelings?

    Since when should I care about a rating?

    Did you hack my messages? Staff could you check his account he might be a hacker.

    Time to train, I would recommend you the same....constructive right....

    Yep, I know I am done posting with him.

    It's like feeding a stray cat; it keeps coming back begging for more, buy will bite you if you try to help it otherwise.

    You and I must be about the same age. I wouldn't expect most people these days to know who Will Rogers was. And you are right on.

    He's an old time cowboy/Cherokee humorist and actor. Well known for the line -

    "I joked about every prominent man of my time, but I never met a man I didn't like."

    Hey, don't lump all us together. Buka's a grumpy old man. I'm just a grumpy middle-aged man.

    Respect for a name of an art means respect for the art

    I'm not so sure of that, nor of the converse. A name is nothing but some words. If someone doesn't like the name, they might still quite like and respect the value of the art, itself.

    Not really. There are plenty of things I can respect, that have stupid names.
    And plenty of things with awesome names that are complete rubbish.

    While some are arguing over the word 'practical' did it occur to anyone that the video is from Finland? The wording on the video is in English therefore a translation which may be close to the Finnish word for whatever they call what they are doing. We all know that not everything translates from one language easily to another so we use the best word we know.
    Rather than bicker over the word why not congratulate people who have kindly put a translation on for those who do not speak Finnish, a notoriously hard language to learn.

    Not a pleasant welcome for someone who has put his training videos up for people to comment on and gets picked up for using words English speakers don't approve of. So who here speaks Finnish so they can apologise for arrogance in the gentleman's own language?

    Tervetuloa martialtalk, pahoittelen idiootteja täällä.

    I'll be honest, I didn't watch the videos until after I read the post. I simply reacted to the title. The OP's logo was in English so I had no reason to assume it wasn't the language of the school.
