    I would like to start an experiment. I would like to keep this experiment relatively private. I want to see if we can convince people of the validity of a Martial Art purely through conformity. I think we can conduct a variety of interesting social experiments with this model. We are going to create a Martial Art. I want to establish a "grand master," 3 disciples, 6 black belts and 10-20 practitioners. First I'm going to need some volunteers. The first person to volunteer gets to be the grand master.

    DAMN,,,, too late. I'll trade you a 19th dragon lord sash in Gojushotokwonhapkichido if you let me be the assistant grand master... Obviously I wouldnt be "grand"... maybe I could just be the quite fancy master?

    I'd like to volunteer but I'd like a bit more detail first, such as how are we carrying this out? Via PM? Another forum?

    I'd like to participate, but only if you can assure me that this thread isn't a social experiment to see how many people would say yes to such a propsition.

    How is this going to work? do i pretend to be a 19 year old grandmaster?
    It would work, i could claim re-incarnation, as i am indian, so its believable.
    and BigMikey - you can be my top disciple.

    Not without an appropriately impressive title. A boys gotta have standards after all.

    Bara guru? - Big guru.

    Yeah some more info would be could.

    Fish - remember the PM i sent you?
    " Fish - you know what. theres a lot of money in this ninja thing. i think we should gather a group of us to start our own Ninjutsu that only does parkour and cool ninja things like smoke screens and stuff. We can call it Sakanakan. (Fish-Kan in japanese)."

    Ok so far we've got:

    Parama-Guru "Zaad"

    Zaad has to go. You've got to pick a different name. Don't make it unbelievable. Something Western with a little flash.

    We've got Guru Mike something (pick a last name)

    Guru Giacomo - pick a name

    Mike is a big guy and he's an older gentleman so it lends credibility to the organization. Giacomo used to practice the jits, so it lends more credibility to the organization.

    Coronavirus - you have first right of refusal on the last guru position. I don't know the details yet because I haven't made them up yet. So make the call. Otherwise it goes to JKD_SI

    Forero, Fish of Doom you are both blackbelts.

    Llama, you will be our first official devil's advocate.

    Ok so the first order of business - we need a name. The official name will be announced via PM. Taking recommendations now.

    The first thing I want to do is convince people we've started a credible Martial Arts organization with a location and students and things without actually doing any of those things. I've got a few ideas here, and the first thing I need is about 10-20 people who will cooperate.
