How To Recognize A Martial Arts Fraud / Cult

How To Recognize A Martial Arts Fraud / Cult

Martial arts is a lot like religion, and going to a martial arts school is a lot like going to a church.

You find your school / gym that you like, go inside and socialize with the teacher and the students, and if they seem like a good fit, you dedicate either a few months, or a few decades of your life spending time with them.

However, much like religion (or a belief system), martial arts can vary between quality, instruction, and practicality. Some martial arts schools can be great, while others are downright dangerous scams or cults.

Be wary of anyone that advertises their martial art as brutal, deadly, or not for sport.

Be wary of anyone that advertises their martial art as brutal, deadly, or not for sport.

One of the biggest red flags in martial arts is when someone tries to sell their art as exceptionally dangerous or violent. All martial arts are dangerous and violent when trained effectively.

That's the entire point.

Your art is too deadly for the ring? Mine is too deadly for the streets.

Generally, there's a myth that training with less safety equipment makes your training "more realistic".

Why The Level of Athleticism Required Matters In Your Martial Arts - Dynasty Clothing MMA

Why The Level of Athleticism Required Matters In Your Martial Arts

Many people are often enamoured with the martial arts, and what they represent.

Little do people know, the generally accepted "idea" of the martial arts, which mostly come from fictional action movies, stage / fight choreography, or other forms of art or pop culture where martial arts are featured, are rooted more in make believe fantasies rather than in reality.

Often times, people who do not train seriously in martial arts or have a beginner's / low level understanding of them, assume that technique and skill will always overcome size, strength, speed, and athleticism.

Yet if that were true, there would be no such thing as weight classes in martial arts, combat sports, and in the Olympics, or gender divisions in professional sports.
