Top 10 signs you're at the wrong Dojo:

The following typical threads that plague martial arts sites will get moved here if not just deleted: 1 - My style is better than Your style" - 2 - "Internal & External" - 3 - Personal attacks - 4 - Threads that start well, but degenerate into a spiral of nonsense.

All jokes aside, one of the guys in my old school put up a fake poster for our class once as a joke. It was saying how you could defeat anybody with 10 seconds a day training and stuff like that. People turned up asking for it.

Edit - here is the link to the poster they put up:

I ask this teacher : "Is there sparring at the school?"
He answers : "No, this art is made for killing. It was created for armored soldiers wielding twin sabres on the battlefield."

Ok then... -bolt-

For some reason that poster totally reads like the label on Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap!

Did you know Bronner was enslaved in an insane asylum in Indiana or somewhere like that for a few months just 'cuz he talked like this? Might have been 6 weeks. Might have been Illinois.

So it was Illinois and it was months.
