    Universal Red Flag Techniques

    Let's see if we can develop a list of techniques that never work when taught to newbs and can be used to answer the question: Am I training in a BS style?

    They should fit into the phrase:

    "If you are being taught to _____________ your MA might be bullshit."
    Say it with a Jeff Foxworthy voice for better effect.

    I'll start off with my personal favorite:

    1) Eye gouging from under mount.

    That's funny, I love choking people from inside the guard. Reverse guillotine FTW.

    "We don't compete or fight actively in our school becasue our techniques are to cripple, maim and kill"

    Good red flag technique indicator.

    grabbing the person's wrist, and only their wrist out of mid air, when they are moving at full speed during a fight, and converting it into a wrist lock and throw. If you are already holding them, or pinning them down, or they are simply not moving, this does not count.

    Ways to defeat multiple attackers :D

    Do weapon defenses count? I'm pretty sure most of them are just crap, I don't know any good ones though so I'm going to stick with this school of thought unless someone can enlighten me.

    Also: Multiple attackers with weapons
