24fightingchickens: Back as a Blog
So Rob Redmond's site is back up, in case anyone cares. A lot of folks seemed to hate on him pretty hard from this site, but he sort of introduced me to the concept of bullshido before I found Bullshido.net, so despite his apparently titanic ego (don't run into many of those in the martial arts, now do ya?), I'm kind of interested to see it back.
He's a Shotokan dude, but always seemed refreshingly candid about its shortcomings -- asserting that a boxer or wrestler usually prevails against a karateka when the heat's actually on because of better conditioning and experience taking hard shots, dissing on ki and advocating hard sparring, outside conditioning and weight training.
Been nice if a _ing _hunner had stepped up to the plate with similar candor about the limitations of an art before I wasted two years slapping elbows and pretending to give a **** about Bruce Lee or William Cheung, but what're you gonna do. At least I learned the Dreaded Anti-grapple...
Anyway, maybe worth a look if you're into that sort of thing. Sorry if this is posted already, I'm a freakin' newbie with poor search skills.
