After seeing this show I can now understand why people don't take the martial arts seriously. The McDojo trend has ruined the MA's in america, this show doesn't help.
I watched that XMA guy on Friday perform a half assed attempt at both a Drunken Form and what I guess he thought he was performing some Monkey style, I thought to myself there is no way my Hung Gar and Choy Li Fut buddies could watch this crap sober.

people act like a forth dan is a big deal, on the show, the forth dan is the most uncontrolled. i seen drunken boxing. monkey stylekung fu. good tkd and hapkido... what don't you like. is it too soft...

i'm sure they are skilled otherwise you would not have mentioned them. seems to me most on this site can't control themselves in point sparring. just my opinion though.
