    No, it doesn't. It is purely for exercise.
    Combatives training log.

    Gezere: paraphrase from Bas Rutten, Never escalate the level of violence in fight you are losing. :D

    Pavel Tsatsouline: kettlebell workouts give you “cardio without the dishonour of aerobics”.

    Agreed.

    No claims whatsoever, although the guy who developed the program has been part of the UCLA martial arts community for decades it seems.

    The nice value-add here is the instructor actually has a decent background in a lot of different disciplines, sport and traditional.

    The wierdo posing for the thread is doing a single leg full pistol squat (except for the hand positioning) but he is using it for some yoga like pose. Aside from fighting, there might be some elements of something real but why bother.

    "the Weirdo posing"

    Are you talking about Dr. Mark Cheng?

    Show some respect, son.

    The man has some serious skills.

    Maybe you should be careful about who you slander here.

    Mark, is a kung fu brother of mine and I abhor net ghosts posting drek about people when they hide behind the laptop.

    Mark and I share a Shuai Jiao lineage, his skills are very good.

    How about you post up some photos of material you are presenting to people to help them train and get interested in better health and longevity?

    Asshat.

    Anyone who snipes, slanders and libels another while hiding is a piece of crap, period.

    It goes way beyond respect.

    You want to snipe, slander and libel someone, do it using your real name, real address, etc...And take the consequences of your actions.

    God forbid, someone actually taking responsibility for their actions.

    Very observant.

    So, you didn't read the thread? It is noted that it is for exercise. Are you that asshole that stands outside of Bally's screaming "why are you lifting weights, it isn't about fighting, why bother?"

    I agree the guy was an asshat with the comment, he damaged his online reputation, and you called him out in a forum type of way. But what's up with the use your real name and face the consequences? What are these consequences you speak of? Seems a bit over reactionary.

    You could have just as easily searched his old posts or asked him in a private message for the answer.
