I saw this commercial on a humor site. I wasn't sure it was real so I looked it up. Here it is:
Team Chip videos

It's the link labeled "Dragon Commercial." Just putting this out there. I don't know the place so I can't comment on them.

I thought this forum would appreciate it the most.

Go seek the advise of a qualified instructor.

Yeah, and unlike some people we have more than enough guns for that over here!

Man, they have some funny videos on there. This is truly a McDojo.

Peppy, but yikes! Chi blasts and Dragons do not a confidence inspiring commercial make.

But funny, hell yes!

Haha, this has to be the most random MA commercial ever. Totally McDojo. Every kid was a black belt and what on Earth is going on with their acrobatics? I trained TKD formally for 9 years and I've never seen such rubbish as this in that time.

So Chip had an eye patch for doing his breaks ... what happened to his eye patch later? Was it just for cool looks? Or he didn't want to get splinters in his eye?

Okay I will admit I don't know anything about Chip so I won't make the assumption that it is a McDojo. Chip may have all the skills in the world and may be a good teacher so I won't take anything away from him. He likes doing demos that other schools also like to do "throughout" the world so I can't say this makes it a McDojo. However all of the demos are a little overboard especially lying on glass and then having concrete smashed on his chest.

Note: Post 1968 ... oh what a good year that was.

That was some funny stuff. I loved after they all leaned back, the kid who got up into the fighting stance.

Loved the flying Side kicks.

Classic stuff right there.

If you think thats bad, I saw a commericial on TV. Last month advertising a "punching bag and video for kids". It said "you can become a "real" "Karate" master in 30 min. with the kicker and dvd for just $39.99"

That made me very mad, but it was also laughable as well.
