Art Mason - Peaceful Warriors - Windsor, Ontario
Long time lurker first time poster.
A fellow co-worker was asking about letting their son take lessons from this club (has 3 clubs locally) and was not sure if all the 'no touch knockouts' and energy techniques were too dangerous LOL.
Heres a youtube video of 'Master Mason' -credentials show TKD, Hapkido, Kyusho (and he's created his 'own' style).

If you watch the video he spends a ton of time discussing the various energies (wood, water, fire, yin, yang etc), just totally messing up their little minds.
The big thing to really take from thie above video (he has MANY on youtube - no touch knockout etc) is that when he wants to emphasize how the energies make his technique more powerful he pulls the students fingers way below his belt level and torques his wrist forward (yes that would drop anyone). When he wants to show how his stance or some energy the other direction makes it less effective, he only pulls down on the students fingers a few inches (always way above his belt line - therefore alot less pressure on fingers). Repeatedly. FAKE.
I call BS big time.

In this next video he grabs the poor kids jaw and palm strikes him in the jaw. Might as well just punch him in the jaw WTF Chi my azz. Its always some young kid they do their incredible techniques on. May have to visit the club to see what they're about (but I have a definite suspicion its all about peace, no fighting and avoiding a conflict - but pressure points will save you if need be. Dim mak baby LOL)
Anyways, any else's opinion on what the various videos show as well as his credentials?
