Bullshido is a website dedicated towards martial arts and entertainment related to martial arts. The name comes from a fusion of the words "bullshit" and "bushido." The site hosts reviews for everything from actual training gyms/dojos to UFC fights and movies. The majority of the activity of the site is on the forums, where members work together for one goal: Exposing martial arts frauds and promoting realistic training methods and techniques. The site holds the concept of "live" training against an uncooperative opponent to pressure-test techniques that are taught. The main concerns Bullshido holds with the martial arts communities are as follows:
- Martial arts instructors with false credentials charging absurd training fees for skills they are not certified to teach.
- Martial arts schools with unverified or made-up lineages that serve to create a false mystical image for that school/art.
- Instructors that teach unrealistic training methods and fighting techniques that may endanger a student should they actually need to rely on them during a real confrontation.
