No. Just, No.

There are many people who will take your money and claim to teach you how to shoot to defend yourself and others. Some are quality establishments of learning, run by people who understand not only the nuts and bolts of shooting, but can efficiently pass it on to others.

This is not one of these places:

When selecting a trainer, be sure to seek out positive and negative reviews from previous students, view pictures and videos of courses they have run, and and quiz the instructors if at all possible. Learning the wrong things is even more costly than merely wasting your money.

    Is this some sort of drinking game? Every time a shooter gets muzzled drink. Everytime the cameraman gets muzzled finish your drink. etc etc.

    Damn. Are you sure this isn’t a spoof?

    Ralph Severe is a ninjer of questionable pedigree who claims a lot of experience in Judo and other real arts without a lot of evidence to back any of it up. He has a reputation for training bujinkan “ninjutsu” in a more alive, more realistic way than your average ninjer, but he’s kind of a nut.

    He got into it with http://www.bullshido.net awhile back and said some truly goofy things.

    Does he offer a discount because you don’t get The Four Rules along with your mall-ninja training?

    There is so much lose and fail there that I don’t know where to start.

    Carbine Class: It’s like flypaper for mall ninjas!

    “Adding comments has been disabled for this video.” Does he wear the White Ninja Shoes of Nuevo Laredo? I get the feeling he’d come out on the short end if he got funneled into a meeting with those lads.

    I think y’all’re crazy. I relish the idea of ballet rifleshooting like the guy around the 40 second mark is doing.

    Looks like he’s well-known in the mall ninja community.

    z0mg. It turns out he’s in my neck of the woods!

    Ralph Severe is a lying sack of shit who couldn’t cut boot camp, apparently. The stuff at http://www.bullshido.org/w/index.php?title=Ralph_Severe
    was priceless.

    I just figured something out. It *is* possible to get eye strain from rolling your eyes too often in a 10 minute period. A coworker and I tried to count the number of safety issues that are in that video. We stopped when our brains exploded at the 7 minute mark.

    Oy vey!
