    Crazy Monkey Defense Opinions

    What is the general consensus in the Bullshido community regarding Crazy Monkey Defense(CMD)? I have done a little research since hearing about it recently and so far am very interested and really love the material I've seen so far. I'm just curious to hear any opinions from Bullshido members around the globe about this.

    It seemed to gain some traction here in the mid 2000s, but haven't heard anything about it lately. One could definitely do worse.

    I'd never heard of it before, but after checking out a couple of vids, it seems like a good covering technique against a barrage of close in punches. Is there more to it?

    It is a name I have not heard in a while
    http://www.crazymonkeydefense.com/
    GlockShooter where abouts are you?
    http://www.crazymonkeydefense.com/united-states/
    gives the locations of gyms that teach it.
    I would be more inclined to look at the gym itself to see how well their fighters are doing over all then to buy into CMD itself.
    As it seems to be yet another martial arts vendor certification.

    So here is the gym that is local to me that offers it
    http://www.swiftkickma.com/
    I personally wouldn't train at Swift Kick and certainly not just to learn CMD.
    The fact that Swift Kick is certified to train it also gives me pause about the quality control measures on who gets certified.

    Wow!.... looks like Rodney has taken the Mcdojo route. What a pity, I liked his work.

    This kid is clearly doing CMD.

    How Rodney can keep quality control on CMD licensed gyms? Don't know. As I said before, I liked and used pieces of it. I hope CMD does not get watered down.

    I've done a little, a very little, bit of CMD second-hand via the coach-of-an-old-coach and I enjoyed the material immensely and still use some of it.

    However, there's a disturbing trend on Mr King's youtube channel of "life coaching" type content and videos promoting spiritual and mental development over fighting.

    I like what I've seen from the system for self defense, as it makes a lot of sense. It is simple, and it is based on boxing with a high guard. What is not to like? In a streetfight, guys always headhunt, and it does a good job of guarding your head.

    But for any decent self-defense system, the instructor is more important than the style. If you can't find a good Crazy Monkey instructor, I pretty much guarantee that you can find a decent boxing coach, and just apply of CM's principles when it comes to self defense outside of the ring.
