Style: Judo, BJJ
So I recently got an email from one of my fraternity brothers advertising the gym he works for.
The Academy of Mixed Martial Science.
I went to the site and found that they're an MMA gym that also promoted a "TMA" philosophy of Bushido and Zen and whatever...I didn't bother reading the whole page but here it is if you want to read. http://www.mma-losangeles.com/Philosophy.html
I also saw their instructor is Leonardo Soares, a BJJ Blackbelt. Did a quick google search and found him to be legit.
So after that I didn't care to investigate any further until I happened upon THIS little gem!
That's right! UDAZ-DO! or The Way of Unarmed Defense Against Zombies!
From their website
UDAZ-DO is a system created by Gidmo Taylor, of the Taylor zombie wrangling dynasty, especially focused on self-preservation in a worst case scenario (unarmed encounter) with the walking, carnivorous dead. Seminars will be available in Los Angeles throughout October.
Here's a video from their youtube demonstrating what they call the B.A.S.H. kick.
Now as you can clearly see, the guy knows what he's talking about. Punching to the mouth risks cutting your skin against zombie teeth and then infecting yourself. He adopts the familiar street self-defense idea of escape over victory as the idea of killing a zombie bare-handed just seems stupid.
Not only that, but he upgrades the FOOM to BOOM, and trains at live speed. Seeing as he is in the LA area, a seminar may be interesting.
"The pedant is he who finds it impossible to read criticism of himself without immediately reaching for his pen and replying to the effect that the accusation is a gross insult to his person. He is, in effect, a man unable to laugh at himself."—Sigmund Freud, The Ego and the Id.

That sounds just like my system "Clown Kwan Do" except for the zombies.

I wonder if he trains for the slow gimp zombies of night of the living dead or the ultra fast dawn of the dead zombies. lol
