Just thought I'd post this link as a comment on the usefulness of Google ads. This appears quite often at the top of Warseer.

http://www.topsecrettraining.com/combat.html

Well I'm sold. Sign me up!

I suppose it would be useful for those of us whose hands arent lethal weapons that need to be kept in a locked box when not in use.

Wow, I can save $60 in the "season's beatings" special offer, lovely, but it's a waste of money, I can't see it being true.

Also, can anybody say "fight club"

Funny thing is that, although this seems to be an actual con attempt rather than a joke (from what I can tell the shopping cart is real), it's amazingly similar to this (http://www.ppsa.com/magazine/llap.html) Monty Python thing, which I have a little poster of - it caught my eye because the headlines were exactly the same. Goes to show, no satire is ever quite as far-fetched as real life can get...

so dangerously powerful that the government shut him down... not once, but twice!

If he had been shut down only once I might be suspicious, but I don't know how anyone could argue with twice! Those yellow boxes look really professional too. I'm sold. :rolleyes:

I like how in all that text he doesn't actually say anything about the training methods.

"Did You Ever Wonder Why It Traditionally Takes
Years Or Even Decades To Master A Martial Art?"

I thought the quick and easy path was the way to the Dark Side?

Saw this a while back and did some research: It's a load of crap. You would do better to spend 10 on a memory enhancing techniques book and just attend a normal marshal arts class(and even that's worthless).

Wow, this seems really familiar...

Oh wait, here's (http://www.somethingawful.com/articles.php?a=3286) why!

Ahahahaha... loved it.

It does seem to me like someone...I shall name no names...bought themself an instruction video:p

Nazerth

Hell, if I ever get bored enough, I could foresee myself getting the instructional video, for pure entertainment value.

Not to mention for the KILLER TECHNIQUES THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO LEVEL ANY MAN IN ONE-ON-ONE UNARMED CLOSE COMBAT WITH A SINGLE BLOW!!!!

Luke

what if both combatants brought the video? according to this guy, they should both kill each other in one punch right?:D

That's why it's such a rare style: Most practitioners die during the first training session!

Here's why that site is a piece of crap. Read this thread through, it has several people who have bought it and found it dodgy.

Here is the best post, that gets to the point, at the bottom of the page by "koinu". Check out the next page after that one, and read "scrappy's" thread.

Some time ago i came across this ABC stuff. I was born in a warzone, I was taught how to fight with guns, RPG's and in hand to hand by my father, who was a Rhodesian war vet, and new fighting skills always intrigue me. Nevertheless, I've encountered scams before so i did some research. It turns out that the guy selling this stuff is a dodgy con-artist.

Here are some other sites he made.

http://15minutehell.com/
http://www.knockoutsleep.com/indexb.html


Notice that the people who give the recommendations are mostly the same. Also, notice the layout of the sites, how its designed, with all hype, and no money-back guarantee. That top-secret training stuff is dodgy, beware of it.


If you want quality modern martial arts, here are my two favourite ones.

http://www.kravmagainc.com/index.html

Also, taking memory exercises and learning any other martial art will get you ahead of most people. Also, visit a gun range. They're skills you may one day need.

Of course it's a load of crap, that's why it's so funny!

Now, why would I ever even need such super-ninja instant killing techniques for anything? :o

And as for US congress trying to ban a martial arts technique, that has to be a big joke :p - ever heard of that second amendment to constitution that they have?

Here, here, here, not there sir, here, and here. And here. Don't forget there, sir. No sir, that is not microscopic script, it is a line of fly excrement that was unfortunately smeared over the draft of this preproduced copy at the time of copying. Yes sir, all three of those phone numbers lead to my home, they are absolutely not random numbers to public institutions. Thank you, sir, for your patronage, I look forward to our relationship, in which I will absolutely not scam your brains out.

Seriously, some people...

hhhhhhhhmmmmmmmm, can you smell the b*llsh*t? Ludo can and Ludo no like.



On a more serious note, I'm now speaking in the third person, so it must be very, very, VERY dodgy.
