My bollock kicking skills have let me down!
His reasoning for this to work is that an average person is not going to react like a trained fighter. Problem is this stuff would be even harder to do on an "average person" because it going to most likely be wailing away. Plus getting hit in the balls mounted isn't going to get a big reaction that he thinks. Just like punching up you aren't going to have the power to do anything other than be annoying, especially with adrenaline running.
And here is the real question. Why do these "street" guys always think they have come up with something better than the tried and true. If it works on trained combat athletes then its going to work on an average person regardless of where you are. This pokey pinchy BS is less reliable than bump, trap, roll, now I'm on top and can pass guard or drop bombs.
That JKD video rules. He literally advocates the Purple Nerple for street self defense. Also that guy has clearly never in his life been arm barred by anyone who knows what they're doing.
I'm sure they would invent some incomprehensible reason why those guys don't count. If you pay attention to Youtube comments, pretty much every traditional martial artist who ever lost a fight was not a true representative of his style.Quote:
JKD not for the ring? He should tell it to David Hood, Todd Medina and Erik firckin Paulson.
I love the pinches! They're great fun in sparring. I had a mate, (vice grips for hands) grab a fist full of flesh on my inner thigh just above the knee and shake like a pitbull. I wouldn't advise trying it on someone you're not good friends with. Usually gets a violent reaction.
He actually says "No Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, No Budo, or whatever"
I'd like to repeat that this bloke categorically denied these techniques being anything to do with budo.
I just want that on record, so that if ever I need to justify doing Aikido, I can simply point at this guy's videos and say "Well, at least it isn't that!"
LOL at groin punch from under mount. And don't know about you, but when I'm in mount throwing punches, my groin is protected by my massive erect penis.
Pinch his chest! Extend your arm towards him let him isolate it and pinch his chest. Genius.
