    Cool! Keep posting the videos of him getting beaten up.

    I feel so powerless now I cant make my family and friends leave their mcdojos, I have tried to explain them the concept of aliveness, how we train with shields and focus mittens in my style and others, how only trough resistance you can discover what techniques work. Now I cant even talk with most of them about martial arts because they believe Im a Full contact nut rider and such

    uechi ryu is fine, my friend who does it spars with other styles on a regular basis and at least holds his own and is made out of steel. it must be where he is learning uechi ryu in which case he should run away from it as fast as he can

    Have you considered making friends with the guy that just beat him ? Between the 2 of you there should be a way to convince your brother that he's going about his training all wrong. He might be able to dismiss you as just a "nut rider" but the guy that knocked him on his ass repeatedly should hold a bit more authority.

    Have those 2 guys sit down and watch the fight so the Muay Thai guy can explain (without being too much of a dick) this is why I beat you and will continue to beat you again and again.

A lot of the students are also fanatics you can see in another of my posts more of this like how they do sweeps and throws on a tile floor

    Pffft, I grew up doing sweeps on tile floors. Smashed the back of my head twice really badly in sparring, tailbone once. It sucked, but such is life! Kyokushin guys don't use gloves, which is slightly loco, so don't hate on how we rolled yo. We did learn good ukemi, however, which we ironically practiced on mats. No mats for sparring though.

    (Yes, I have mats for my students. It's a different era, even from when I started, let alone what it was like for the true old-timers.)

    You are a full contact nutrider, but it's a common side effect from having trained for 10 months. Take heart,it's better than being an RBSD nutrider or Hatsumi nutrider or a chi superhero, however, as you're probably getting good training. This condition won't last forever if you stick with training.

    P.S. A few years ago the owner/head instructor of the biggest/best MMA/BJJ gym in my area told me (when he had no idea I did Karate or was anything other than a beginner grappler) he say value in pretty much all martial arts, even pointsparring and encouraged his guys to not laugh at it and try to learn something instead. (Obviously he doesn't mean **** like Yellow Bamboo, so don't take "all" to an illogical conclusion!)

    If you want to convert your friends/family, keep it from becoming a contest; bring them to one of your Kyokushin classes, and make sure they have a good time/see something cool/everyone is friendly & welcoming to them.

    I bet he will be good and might be able to make some good use out of the timing/distance poinfighting stuff he learned once he gets more the more bread and butter skills from Muay Thai. He really can take a hit and isn't wimpy.

    That beatdown was much harder than almost every TD video out there and honestly your cousin acquitted himself better than a lot of posters here would.

    I think you are right. I took this the wrong way I will bring them to Kyokushin classes then.
    Thank you for input!

    I can see the point-fighterness of it all. He looked a lot like me when I first got to Japan. I'd hop off the line and land a sharp punch and think, "Point!"

    ...then I'd get hit about fifteen times because there are no points.

    Uechi-Ryu man really does need to learn to adapt to circumstances a little though. If you're getting hit in the head that much and it still doesn't even occur to you to maybe raise your hands, maybe this fighting stuff isn't for you.
    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.
