I think they meant paying to go to a 'school' breaking some boards and getting some coloured belt. Used to see these old ladies on Merv Griffin type shows with black belts throwing stooges around on stage, hell, I think Merv could of taken some of these gals.

Right.  It was about belt mills and that weight advantages really do matter.

Honestly, I'm okay with belt mills for younger kids. In my younger days (elementary school), I did the belt-mill thing; then switched to kodokan judo when I decided to take the training wheels off. Looking back, the belt mill thing was actually pretty healthy for a kid. Sure, it was never going to turn me into the next ultimate fighter, but that was never my goal back then. It was, however, a lot of fun; and it helped keep me from turning into a pre-teen fatass.

And holy jesus god, the place I went to made your average belt mill look tame by comparison. We had belt colors. Then we had stripes and double stripes on the belts for intermediate steps. We had colored ribbons on one side of the gi showing which katas we'd "mastered". We had colored ribbons on another side for weapons we'd "mastered", colored ribbons on a third side for breaking an artifical board with one type of jump kick, a headband for the same with a second type of jump kick, chevrons on the sleeves good report cards and god knows what else. By the time I stopped going (6th grade or so) the only other place I could have worn that gi would have been a pride parade.

Don't regret it for a second though. Never really learned anything useful for a fight, but I can still swing my (admittedly padded) nunchaku around decently well. And that's really all that hot chicks are looking for in a man.

When you bullshiat people for a living you never run out of things to say.

Having seen that episode, both of your posts don't fully reflect the premise of the episode. The premise was that letting some guy rob you of your wallet occasionally is cheaper than paying for the training to fight back, let alone still potentially losing and being injured more than just giving it up.

I agree with the "belt-mill" problem.  There are too many ways to make $$$ off of suburban moms looking for a break from their crotch fruit for a few hours.

I don't disagree there is some benefit for the children because it at least gets them out of the house and moving around.

When I got older I took Shaolin Kung Fu with my kids and really learned to fight properly.  We had ranks but the main thing the school emphasized was training correctly and application.  One of the first things we learned was how to apply power with a punch.  I was surprised at how proper body mechanics can create a much stronger punch.  We would punch the heavy bags until your arms went limp.  I really felt like I learned something valuable at that school.
