Sites related to topics being discussed in this particular section of the forum:


Superb site dedicated completley to applying the methods of critical thinking and modern scepticism to the martial arts: "Bad Martial Arts"

Perhaps the orignal and certainly the most popular martial arts site largely dedicated to debunking martial arts fraud, albeit with a SBG MMA bias: Bullshido

http://www.bullshido.com

A fitness site that applies scientific and critical thinking to sports performance, debunking myths at the same time: "Coach Hale"

PostSubject: The Baron of Castleshort!   Tue May 12, 2009 7:15 pm

A.R.R.S.E. is an online community that outs people who lie about their military backgrounds. This is a common tactic in the world of martial arts, where instructors use a military background, rarely check up on, to bolster their reputation.

Here is a great article about one such individual:

So we have military scepticism!
