I've been involved in various martial arts since I picked up a dated old book on "Ju Jitsu" back in the 50s. Some Brit guy who'd worked with the police in colonial Hong Kong.
Been through standard (Shotokan) karate, a bit of judo, Tae Kwon Do, Jeet Kun Do and Escrima, as well as the police defensive tactics (I'm still a certified instructor) and a wide variety of other things I had interest in.
Now, at 67, I'm interested more in the martial arts from a scholarly/skeptical viewpoint and tend to rely more on my "tools".

It's a fascinating field, both historically and culturally, but it's filled with more absolute nonsense, myth, and fraud than you can shake a stick at.
Add to this that most interested juicy young men are absolutely clueless and will believe any nonsense they see.... It's an uphill battle.
For people interested in real discussions, I suggest the Reddit subforum, r/martial arts, which also has many additional sub-Reddits for a wide variety of particular arts.

Well said! I started with Tae Kwon Do, then Shotokan, American Kenpo, Judo and half a dozen less formal weapons disciplines and found that the sheer amount of horseshit peddled as fact and wisdom was staggering.

There's a reason why most Dojo's go out of business within just a few years...
