That's a criticism of JKD itself, not of MAU or Chris Malgeri.

How many MMA bouts does your teacher have? Oh wait, that's not th3 5tr33t. Do you mean he needs to go pick random fights at some bars/metal shows? I definately did not get the feeling that Malgeri was a "fighter", and maybe he has more book smarts than scars. *shrug*
I actualy see he lacks alot of real time experiance
Again, that's the problem with JKD. And you are not NOT going to find that at a JKD place. You can't really go to a boxing coach and say "I could totally take him to the mat and RNC him", and you can't really go to a JKD place and wish they were grounded in one discipline. I do think it would help the students to focus themselves, however, and if you read my review I bring that up as an issue for some of them.
and has no foundation, as he has "Spread himself to thin" being a collector.
I didn't get this sense at all on my visit. He seemed like a pretty quiet guy, actually, and seemed to want to explain things a bit more than I find necessary. Maybe that's why he hasn't gotten in many "r331 w0r1d" bar fights. *shrug* Mystical, however, I just didn't see. I mean, the guy was involved with the class, and right with students pointing things out directly. It's not like he was staring off into space going "One day, Grasshopper".
but he also has a bit of false humblness going on, perhaps trying to give off some mystique or somethign.
Again, especially for you students there, add your thoughts about the school to the review I already posted. <----- Click Link.
