    90 years old Krotty Granmaster Video!

    Here it is, does anyone else felt bad at seeing his gran-son tecniques?


    Sorry that compliant partner drills dont look too realistic, do you think that this kind of training really improved his life longevitiy?

    The video is 3 years old

    I saw a graph a while back, I'll post it here if I can find it, that showed what muscle tissue of the elderly looked like comparing the tissue of one who was sedentary and one who was active through x-rays. The difference was huge. I'm no doctor or anything, but I'm pretty sure any healthy activity can play a pretty big role in keeping you alive longer.

    any 90 year old who gets out and moves his ass has my respect.

    Let's see some of what you do on video.

    I'm not missing the point of the video, but at the 1:00 mark, it went from karate to Capoeira. WTF?? That aside, I hope to be half as active when I get that age; since I'm already over half way there.

    Do I think that sports and generally being active can help you keep healthier? Yes, I do.

    0:52 seconds is some whack sweep set up FROM A PUNCH where she drops TO THE FLOOR and (I assume, the video didn't focus) ankle picks her. Total bullshit.

    0:58 seconds is Capoeira and total horseshit.

    The demos are terrible, but he is obviously trying to put the schools best foot forward for show.

    Then again, this takes nothing from grandpa grandmaster being fit and relatively healthy, other than the cancer battle which wouldn't be a battle without him being fit and healthy. Props to him.

    I think if I did that in my capoeira class, my instructor would want to tell me to go home. That's youtube capoeira at best.

    Not a big fan of the techniques shown, but a huge fan of continuing to work out and trying to stay healthy in advanced age. Getting up there, myself.

    I have nothing against the old man, he is clearly in good health but I find stupid the moves shown in the video they seem to mcdojo and if he makes people believe they can defend with some of those techniques he is delusional
