Such places abound, for certain. Just look at any of our favorite neo-ninja sites.

It doesn't surprise me that someone is offering this, anymore than it surprises me that people will pay the bargain price of only $99 (on sale from $199). We live in a society that wants instant gratification and instant results - that, more than anything, is why so many long-term personal goals fail, with success in athletic endeavours and diets being prime among them! How much advertising for fitness and diets includes the idea "only minutes a day" or "just pennies a day"?

In addition, many people just don't understand the difference between this type of advertisement, advertisements for McDojos, serious training halls, and pure charlatanism. As discussed in another thread on how people chose their art/instructor, many people choose by chance - some get lucky, and some don't. This advertisement is an example, in my opinion, anyway, of being unlucky in one's choice of system - but people do it, and some people will claim it works

I am just sick of you all belittleing the majic of martial arts! They ARE NOT shortcuts! they are the ultra secret techniques taught to worthy students by ancient masters who then pass it on to the masses through the digital media.

I myself have a thirty seven voulme set due out soon about levitating headstnds while invisible in order to use chi balls of force to hypnotise your enemy into knocking himself out with a no touch punch. Takes about three minutes of training and 49.95 per tape.

Now I had a magic kit when I was 7 and was able to make a ball disappear under the cups, if I can do that why not make the human dis appear under a Mac truck.

I just bought an enchanted samurai armor set off e-bay, looks just like the one in "Last Samurai."

It's been blessed by a Norse shaman out of Southern Illinois, so it protects me against psionic and magical attacks from anyone lower than a level 15 Earth-Mage. Add to that the "Sword of Destruction + 12" I found at a rummage sale and I can single handedly take on these jokers...

Just kidding.

The armor looks nothing like the "Last Samurai" set.
