    Chris Parker SUCKS

    Good day, I want to know why time and time and TIME again Chris Parker is allowed to go into one of my threads and personally attack me with false accusations and smear tactics. I am SICK of it. Please do something about this or at least allow me to challenge him so that I can personally...

    What Is A McDojo?

    So have archery and driving but they aren't taught as self defense nor advertised as such (LOL).

    My son slowly losing interest in competition and sports MA.

    I appreciate where you are coming from I do. This is really me being sick and tired of people like Kirk pointing to crap spread on the internet about me falsely from over 2 years ago. He attacked me off the bat with the "irony" bit suggesting that I am not an honest person based on stuff he...

    My son slowly losing interest in competition and sports MA.

    Start a new topic if you want to talk about me, otherwise don't critique how you "feel" my post addresses the subject or not. My thoughts are not subject to your understanding of them, or lack thereof. I responded to the post, you tried and failed to make a backhanded attack at my personal...

    My son slowly losing interest in competition and sports MA.

    Google what Kirk, English grammar? What's hilarious is you pointing this out to me. I founded an art with one of its primary goals to completely strip my training from its cultural, religious and political trappings. However, thoughtfully responding to the OP's personal situation and...

    My son slowly losing interest in competition and sports MA.

    Yea, how so? Also, irony is not a complete sentence and does not require the period (or were you being ironic?). If one is not interested in Budo then they should more appropriately train boxing, wrestling or the walking stick. I never said "Just add Budo" rather I said much more but when...

    My son slowly losing interest in competition and sports MA.

    Ok Happy-Papi - I want you to know that I am a VERY honest person and that I mean no harm in my words although they might come across harsh. Just know that what I am about to write I do so in love and respect. When I read this at first I thought it was a joke (troll job) and I am still HOPING...

    Overthinking in sparring?

    Drill. Take time off and spend a good time drilling and then go back and spar and you will find your responses coming faster.

    Beware of Western Medicine

    There is no such thing as "Western" medicine or any other kind of "x" medicine. There is ONLY medicine and all the other stuff not proven to work yet.

    respecting a persons black belt from a diffrent style

    I was always taught to wear a white belt when visiting other schools, even within my own style. I think this is best as it prevents needless confusion and in my opinion shows respect. What if someone took a picture or was visiting and saw you there in a black belt all kinds of...

    Is it possible to "train" for something that you never actually do?

    It only matters as much as the elements involved change. Most self defense systems teach concepts and techniques based on human anatomy and hopefully basic physics principles and these things will remain relevant until either of those change or some other factor becomes so prevalent as to make...

    Combining Wing Chun and Aikido?

    Can I just suggest that if you do combine these a possible name blending both might be......wait for it......WINDO! Funny to me anyway. Hey, the beauty of training is that you can combine whatever you want. If you are asking about the validity then it becomes a matter of opinion and experience.

    Mc Dojo

    Sorry but I don't have the time now to read this entire thread but I do feel compelled to respond right now. If I restate something I apologize. I HATE the term McDojo. It is not a "real" term. McDojo comes most popularly from Bullshido which was originally called McDojo.com (it first showed...

    What's Wrong With Kata?

    This is great to know and sorry I assumed otherwise. I do look forward to talking with you in depth about these and other concepts you are exploring as this has been my life's study. It is interesting to learn that you spent time on the E2 as I was once an IS myself. If I gave the impression...

    Sifu is using cell phone a lot during class - advice needed.

    I was speaking in terms of the context of this thread. I agree with you but what happens is non-Masters think they know how masters should teach sometimes and what happens more times than not regular folk think they can tell who's the master and who is not....which leaves the question...

    What's Wrong With Kata?

    Gary, I know this is going to come across in a bad way and I'm sorry for that upfront. I appreciate you putting yourself and your ideas out - this is the way we all can improve. I also appreciate the time and detail of what you have done - this is needed if we are going to take ideas step by...

    THIS ^^^ This is the best thing yet my friend. If you don't understand then ask and always ask honesty and from the heart. You might not get the answer you want but you WILL get the answer YOU need at this time. Best wishes Jason Brinn

    Sifu is using cell phone a lot during class - advice needed.

    Two things here I know to be true from my experience: 1. One day of non-committed teaching from a master can be worth years of dedicated hands on training from a run-of-the-mill instructor (been there done that). 2. If you don't think the teacher's attention is not worth it then you are...

    Sifu is using cell phone a lot during class - advice needed.

    In my system the first things you learn require the least amount of direct instruction. Really all you need is some guiding points and the actual practice itself is self-correcting. So in my system it is perfectly fine, in fact it is a really good practice to leave the student alone during...

    You might want to know more than he does before attempting this. LOL.

    Sifu is using cell phone a lot during class - advice needed.

    I understand everyone else's view, like I said - I prefer to teach the way everyone here has outlined. I just think he should get what he can when and how he can and then move on when he feels like he has learned all he can - why worry about the box? FYI - the pic of Jack from A Few Good Men...

    Sifu is using cell phone a lot during class - advice needed.

    It wasnt a personal attack sir. I am only pointing out that somehow, scientifically and omnisciently you are giving the definition of standard as to what a good instructor does or does not do. I get it that it has been your experience and personal opinion that a good instructor does A B and C...

    Just posted this somewhere else and then it struck....is that a cell phone in Miyagi's hand? No that's a fishing rod never mind!

    Sifu is using cell phone a lot during class - advice needed.

    The lack of punctuation here leaves me to believe that you mean this as a statement of agreement. Yes, a teacher can teach with or without a cell phone. If, however, you meant this to be a question instead I would say that a great teacher is not hindered by it either way. "One who is bound...

    Sifu is using cell phone a lot during class - advice needed.

    Surprise surprise but I am going to offer a different suggestion: Like it or leave it. He IS the instructor and maybe this is the way he teaches. Your expectations of how he should teach are great but just your opinion and mean little outside of your own experience. Whatever amount you pay...
