    Lindz, that video made me cry. Does he really think he just did anything there besides spasm?

    I respect and believe there's great qualities in Kenpo, but that video does not drive the point home to me. It looks a little too much of "you do this, I do this" type of striking. Compared to watching a western boxer/MT dude do a demo they just look so much more valid as a legit striking art.

    He should name his style after himself and call it a syndrome.

    I get what you're saying, but when it comes to self defence, it's hard to generalise. There are many different styles of Jujitsu out there, and some do focus on striking, so it's hard to nail down a basic style. Here's a local Taijutsu(of the non ninjer sort) example,

    "Sekkyoku Tai Jutsu is a street orientated style of Ju Jitsu with an emphasis on aggressive striking and effective self defence techniques." http://www.sekkyoku.com/

    They incorporate strikes and the clinch from Muay Thai, as they run Muay Thai seminars, and also wrestle.

    I totally get your point, but I did stuff out of that video during my short stay at Bujinkan, and even Karate.
