That's always the case. Nothing has changed about that and it doesn't matter what system a person trains. There will always be people like that. Joe Rogan can be seen taking this same attitude when he comments. One year kung fu doesn't work then someone does a simple kick "Oblique kick" and he sees it, and his whole perspective is changed.The issue with the martial arts community is they seem to think they know Everything these days.
People are just funny that way. They never seen a space alien before and some believe that. Yet tell them that you can kung fu and now they want visual evidence. Go figure.
In general the best mindset for a lot of what is done is "That is not the only way but just one way." I think the martial arts community would be better if people said this before they say what they are thinking.
Each is different. People go to them for different reasons. Rokas mainly because he called people out and he shared through video his quest to "Test Aikido"I don’t understand is why people gravitate to guys Rokas, Icy Mike, Ramsey Dewey who are no body in the MA community.
I don't know Icy Mike. ha ha ha. but will check him out just because you said his name lol. But Ramsey Dewey is level headed about his comments and has a good radio voice.
In terms of people not being big names. I've learned more about fighting from people who would be seen as a "Nobody" in martial arts. I'm actually more cautious with the "big names" but that's just me.
But over all Google has made us all 30 minute experts, with no real world experience in the subject we are talking about. It's not always bad, sometimes you just need the correct info. But it doesn't work so well with martial arts because there's so many types, schools, and paths to shift through.
