    Want to buy a signed copy? Or one with a stamp from the Canadian Society of Arwrologists? Or the Paladin reprint?

    Of course there's a Paladin reprint of Arwrology.I forgot what we were talking about. It's the Underwood stuff I couldn't find.

    Paladin has been approached several times,including by me, about reprinting either one or all of Underwood's books. They have expressed no interest.

    [QUOTE=atomicpoet;2493262]"Noteworthy" being the qualitative term. Compared to Underwood, Jacomb is pretty obscure. When I hit Google, I'm hard-pressed to find information on him.

    By contrast, Underwood had a lot of media coverage while he was alive, and his system has lots of documentation. When this documentation was created is a separate matter entirely.

    /QUOTE]

    Until I put up a scanned copy of Combato for Soldiers and Civillians on a friend's website around 2002, there was very little info out there on Underwood. The only other mention of him that I can remember is on Mike Griffin's website. Lots of info on Underwood went up once Robbie Cressman and Mike Mandel revived Defendo.

    I can't tell you when Jacomb passed away, but as he was teaching the military in two countries and publishing books based on that experience in 1918, it is not unreasonable to say he died before the popular advent of television. That doesn't mean his system was not significant, just happened prior to mass media exposure. How much info can you dig up on American martial arts pioneers like Risher Thornberry or John O'brien? Does that mean they were not significant?

    Wolfe has now moved into "Modern Defendo" marketing and teaching and has returned to Vancouver. It is hoped that he will update his 1999 and 2002 tapes soon. Earlier on the forum were comments about the tapes not emphasizing chin-jabs and palm-strikes to the face. Correct... His seminars do drill on palms and hammer fists with the usual 'soft to hard' and 'hard to soft' target teaching of bare handed fighting. At one time he had individual training day available. His week long courses require a work ethic and sufficient conditioning. I would recommend the "CORE" DVD from his new website.

    .

    Yeah, I was wondering if that might not be the case.

    I've been considering buying his BRICK series or even going for the two week course, but money's always an issue. Anybody have any thoughts?
