    The best part is the power blast or whatever at the end.

    I think that its fine if people decide to spend their time doing whatever martial art. But when they feel its necessary to endlessly talk about it and prove something to people who don't care... it gets old real fast.

    Point 1
    If you're doin what most patrons of the McDojo are doing, and trying to be able to defend yourself against some idiot with a 'tude then you're probably doing fine. If you happen to think it's the best style there ever was, then good stuff cause it'll give you confidence.

    Point 2
    I'd rather see those kids trying spinning back kicks, and outward crescent kicks than playing PS2.

    Point 3
    That was frikkin hilarious, how does that man sleep at night. Notice there are no adults in that ad.

    The problem with 1 and 2 = the kids spend so much time practicing a style that they think is effective, and later in life will end up in a sticky situation because of their inflated ego.

    With the numbers of childhood diabetes/asthema/obesity on the rise I'll risk it.

    edit: I definatly agree that they could end up with their mouths writing checks their asses can't cash. But with the herds that are going to these places I'm just glad they aren't glued to their couches.

    heh, true it is better than no physical activity...

    I guess whoever goes to the traditional places without having really done any research on what is effective and what is not, deserves it.

    And if they get bit by the bug they'll find a better place.

    Kid1 "My sensei just made a comercial and let me be in it!!!"

    Kid2 "My coach just won a bout by choking out a bjj bb."

    Kid1 :eek3:

    Besides where else are the next gen action stars going to train besides TKD and Kung FU studios?

    why in Steven Seagal's Aikido dojo of course...

    but how funny would it be to watch a jet li movie only to see him grappling every single opponent.

    other than the cheesy CG dragon and the SF2 fireball at the end, all I saw were 9 year olds with black belts. :ugh:

    HAHAHAH i saw that chip guy on like espn2 iska karate championships in a "breaking" compittion. most of that shit is so fucking lame. it more like a circus act than anything, for example some dudes had bricks broken on them while on a bed of nail WTF does that have to do with breaking skills? or even worse, how does this translate into a martial art at all really. the fucking iska karate thing was sponsored by some hair styling company too. then they had form compititions which were pretty stupid, and they even had this head to head "battle" which just turned into a break dancing battle. lame.

    but i did see this one dude, a big black guy with crazy drawin in eyebrows who was fucking bad ass. he could finger jab through a solid wood door, and break wood boards that sat ontop of ballons with out popping the balloons and finger jab through a open soda can like it was a foam cup. i think the shit he did acually showed that he had useful power.

    A lot of those feats are actually just parlor tricks that can be learned relatively quickly. (karate chopping a beer bottle, poking a hole into a soda can, etc)
