    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Gendai Martial Arts--Raleigh, NC

    So there is this martial arts school right around the corner from where I work and train that I've never really paid much attention to.

    The other day I was coming into my office from lunch and had just worked out...so I had my gym bag and gi with me (I hang it in an empty office to dry since I train later in the day too). A co-worked asked if I trained jiu jitsu...and of course I said 'yes' and asked him if he trained.

    He told me he trained at Gendai Martial Arts, right across the street. As I started to ask the obvious questions about what they train, how they train, etc., the answers I got sounded pretty interesting. I was told that "we aren't based on any martial art, we are 100% self defense oriented and train only what works. We train something, test it out in the real world, and if it doesn't work, throw it away."

    So...I couldn't resist and decided to check out the website:

    http://www.gendaimartialarts.com/


    There are truly some gems on there if you dig around.

    Take this page for example: http://www.gendaimartialarts.com/?page_id=56

    This is a list of martial arts and why they aren't good for self defense (including bjj, judo, karate, tkd, thai kickboxing, etc.).


    And of course there is this page: http://www.gendaimartialarts.com/?page_id=22

    Check out this little nugget:

    Do you spar?
    NO! Sparring as it typically applies to most martial arts training involves two students agreeing to a set of rules and a referee. While sparring does teach a certain degree of timing, distancing, etc., it does not adequately prepare a student for the likely range and angles utilized by aggressive street thugs. There are obviously no rules in the street. There are no referees. And, fighting is illegal anyway. So, training to spar will likely be viewed as training to fight in court and by law enforcement.


    So...just wanted to pass along for some laughs. I'm going to try and convince my co-worker to give my school a try (Royce BJJ school).

    Please go there with a video camera.

    The guy claims some judo training but then there's ... the rest of his entire website. I'd be very interested to see just what it is that they think works so well.

    Did you see their videos page? Craptacular. Just more of the some old **** you see from the likes of Hatsumi, Dillman, etc. Uke attacks with one "technique", then dies while the good guy unleashes hellfire on him. **** like this is tiresome.

    Don't these motherfuckers have cable TV? It seems like at this point everyone would be able to sniff out bullshit like this. I have no idea how they secure students.

    See, for this to REALLY work, you need thug it up a little bit, then you can just go in and start mugging people while yelling "ARE YOU STREET BITCH?!".

    Though knowing most "Self defense" centered schools they will **** themselves to death when you walk in....
