I'd like to see a martial arts scepticism glossary sticky. Terms like "McDojo" and "Belt Factories", and controversial figures like George Dillman, Ashida Kim, Frank Dux, the Yellow Bamboo could be listed along with related topics like Chinese medicine or Indian fakir tricks.

Jamie,

will get on to that asap,

going to take a bit of research as martial scepticism isnt something I have really delved in to other than the Qi debate I embroiled myself in recently.

I will certainly work on your suggestions and see what develops from there.

My quandary is lock it to admin for quality control or open it to all members contributions, wiki-esque?

Have a word with Rob and Craig and see what happens,

cheers,

Den.

Keep it open and see what happens. I've whacked a few up there already.

Cheers Jamie,

hopefully more contributions to follow considering the high quality of MA practitioners on this forum.

Regards,

Den.
