Last night at Kung Fu, my instructor had failed again to get a pressure point to work at all on me, he decided to raise the issue with his instructor (who he paid hundreds of pounds to for a seminar on these points), when asked if they worked on his instructor we were told he had trained his chi too much and closed all the points. I know, I know, but I get my kung fu fix in between sensible training

This one doesn't come from the mists of the past. No, this one's about three weeks old.
A couple weeks ago, I was talking to this dude who teaches some karate style that he thinks is a real thing when it isn't. He said he wanted me to teach for him. Now I thought he meant BJJ/judo, which I would be fine with. I need the money and whoever they got that wasn't me was bound to be even worse.
So I arrived at his class, which is in the basement of a synagogue (I don't think anyone in the class was Jewish). I decided to put on a white belt and join in, show what a humble samurai I am and fool him into thinking that we're at all equals.
So the technique they're doing is as follows:
1: Uke right jabs in slow motion at a spot about six inches in front of tori's face and holds their arm out there for the whole technique because once you launch your fist you lose all control of it
2: You knife hand block it, outside to in, with your right hand and step laterally, ending up facing 90 degrees to him, on the outside of his forearm
3: You switch your blocking hand because as long as your forearms are touching he can't move or something. Then with your right hand, you chop up and through uke's ribs. You're seriously supposed to come all the way through, like you're in Riki-Oh and slicing through his lungs or something.
4: Chop the back of the neck while bumping the back of their knee with yours.
In reality he wanted me to take a two week or so "instructor's course" and teach this kindof thing for him. I wobbled (i'm poor, don't have judgement) but eventually sent him a politely worded rejection.

Hook kick into roundhouse kick with the same leg. Also the evading of a roundhouse kick by leaning forwards and using his foot to spin hin around.

As bad as this stuff SOUNDS, it's actually really worrying too- my last instructor was telling me about an incident which was caught on CCTV- a security guard who was a black belt in Tae Kwon Do was confronted by a guy holding a knife. The Black belt proceeded to kick the guy in the head with a roundhouse- I gather he connected fine, but in doing so sliced open his femoral artery and actually died a few minutes later- the assailant didnt even really attack the guy, he was pretty much just holding the knife. Now say what you want about how bad this guy may have been at his martial art or practical thinking, but if that was all he learnt from a bad instructor, and it was very ingrained in him from repetition, it would have been semi automatic. Worrying. Lets just hope students taught like this dont get into too many situations :S
