Im not a fan of forums but i read what nightwatchdog said.
Too many people have teachers that have to make things more and more complicated with rules and guidelines just to keep the students around. This wealth of useless knowledge does pout up the intellectual ego quite a bit.
Sorry to offend but you have no idea how stupid you look from my perspective.
Any martial arts is in the results. This man is small and thin and i have seen him throw people twice his size, no matter how hard and ferocious they attack (non students always suffer more). He never struggles with anyone - just light and easy movements - no muscle work. People make loud noises and go flying and he is always unaffected. You really feel fear after you come at him hard to try and hurt him - no matter your background.
