I don't know what to say so I'm going to agree with Tony and say ."At least they're getting some exercise."

I will however say the last demo of the guy who hits the board with his fist but doesn't break it is classic. From the sound of it, it seems like someone switched boards on him because that's the sound the bones make when it hits construction grade wood. The part that put a grin on my face was how he played off the pain of hitting that board. By the way his hand slid on the wood, he probably lost some skin.

I truly want to say something about what I saw on the video but I am without the words that can describe how absolutely horrid I found the whole thing.
What ever happened to the standards black belts where held to many years ago

Edit I never made it through the whole 7 minutes I just could not watch it anymore

I will say that it gave me a good laugh. Which was welcomed as it's been a trying day dealing with the 3yo.

Welcome to the era of instant gratification where everyone wins, and you can feel like you've accomplished something without doing anything at all. Because of that, the black belt in Karate means next to nothing.

The old masters are rolling in their graves.

Im not sure why people get such a kick out of making fun of these dudes. Who cares they are having fun and enjoy what they do. Good for them.

Sorry I was not making fun of them I am simply saying that what I see is an insult to those who studied and made the grade many years ago.
The fact that they seem to be having fun is a different point of how demonstrations and testing is done in some places from what would have been acceptable years ago vs today

Im not sure how what a bunch of guys you don't know doing something you don't train in is an insult.

So you dont have fun training? Then what's the point? For a vast majority of people martial arts are just a hobby. If they enjoy their hobby how does that have any effect on you?

It's just Hanzou.. most people see the danger in it. It's all fun until one of these guys think their martial arts training can actually get them out of a fight. It's all fun until they learn the hard way that someone was taking advantage of them and they wasted all of that money and their time training incorrectly.
Even hobbies have standards. You wouldn't want to learn sky diving from a fake sky diver instructor. So why would you want to learn martial arts from a fake martial art instructor?

This goes back to what I said before on another thread, it's unfair to laugh at them, rant at the instructors not them. Do the students know what they are doing, do they know they can't defend themselves or do they think that is how training is supposed to be? They meet the standards set by the instructors, the standards of the school presumably. that would know better should make us sad/humble/thankful whatever but not crease up on laughter.
If you don't like what they do and feel strongly contact them, if you don't feel that strongly stop being unkind by posting the videos up here so you can feel superior which is really why people watch and post this up. " oh wow look how funny these guys are and how much better I am" Really? it's best to shut up and train because there's always someone better than you out there and leave others to do what they will.

I haven't watched the vid, yet, but if you see bad martial arts training, it should concern you that these people are passing this on to their children, and their children's children.

Concern is one thing, using them for a cheap laugh is another.

Look at the website for the WMAA group and some of the things that they have achieved in service of the local community. Not everything is about physical / martial skill.

So do two dudes rolling and flailing on a mat. So what's you point

If you're flailing around on the mat, you need to find a better grappling gym.

It's just Hanzou.. most people see the danger in it. It's all fun until one of these guys think their martial arts training can actually get them out of a fight.

I didn't start this thread. :p
