Keysi Fighting Method/ Justo Dieguez
first off I am not trying to attack anyone, I am just looking for some info on this system, and its founder that has not come directly from the KFM monolith......from what I have seen of the system it is interesting and worth looking into, but the marketing and hype surrounding it is a bit overwhelming- the founders seem to have distanced themselves from their JKD and kali backgrounds (Andy and Justo were both registered instructors under Dan Inosanto) and now say that the art comes from Spanish Gypsies and was perfected by Justo while he was working down a mine.
Now, I don't know anything about Spanish gypsies but some parts of this story should be fairly easy to verify (for a Spanish speaker anyway):
Justo says he was born in October 1957, started mining at just under 13 and after 6 years was involved in a mining accident where everyone else died and he was trapped underground for 4 days. Should be easy to find info on a mine disaster, right?
Justo the says he joined the army special Forces and "He quickly became the top soldier within the special units".
Now, this is what has got me, and why I decided to start this thread- if Justo really was Spain's No. 1 soldier- fair play to the man, if not then that's the worst kind of BS, in my opinion....just my opinion, but this should be easy to verify, right?
