    Whoever said I wasn't a troll? Besides, this is YMAS.

    Been enjoying a beautiful Saturday here at my new academy. Taking a break and checked this thread. I just have to laugh... So much misdirection, so much blatant bias, people arguing words they don't understand... It's funny...

    Enjoy your day folks..

    You want to have a debate on the flaws with your students throwing randori practice and their technique?

    Not really why? I never put them up as examples of perfect technique. They are just students training and that's all. Sure they can get better can't we all?

    Because they're doing pretty much everything wrong, which is indicative not of the expected learning curve of a beginner, but the incompetence of the instructor.

    They could get better, but they won't because their instructor clearly doesn't have the faintest idea how to teach stand up grappling in any respect.

    You know you have no idea what you're doing or how to teach stand up grappling, hence why you're ducking the debate with weak generic platitudes.

    You've seen my Judo BB tag and soiled yourself- now have a soft squidgy sensation with every step you take in your tabi.

    Drop the "we" comment that might be what you do. I'm not here to sway anyone and most posters are not.

    Colin isn't a troll because, if you ask him to tone it down, stop, or have an intelligent conversation he does in our encounters. I can also find many posts, that aren't in YMAS, where he has contributed to and defended noob posters.


    RRWAA, sorry if you feel you got sucked into this conversation. Your presence here has been eye opening. I realize you may not be used to posting on forums, but you handle yourself quite well. You can't respond to every single person who challenges you, but it is good to respond to a couple, especially those that are respectful or bring up new points.
    If he would have READ the rules and posted in noobtown this would have been avoided.

    Hey guys listen, I'm going to bow out of this discussion. Thanks to those who were civil. I'm not sure what else I can add. If you think we suck then you are free to think that. We will keep on keeping on. Feel free to check our YouTube site for more videos in the future I hope you enjoy them or if you think they are a joke then at least we made you laugh! :)

    Good luck in your training people.

    Wouldn't it be a good omen if a forum of martial artists didn't tell you you sucked?

    Why else would you post your videos here if not to get feedback?

    I checked the thread...lots of constructive feedback, your response is "I'm leaving".

    There are different types of laughing....the kind of laughing going on here is not the one you want.
