    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    A boxer that boxed as long as I've done MA and decided to convert to MMA headbutted my straight right, intentionally. He didn't say it was intentional, but I watched his head move towards my punch with his body not moving. I was impressed, my hand throbbed the entire session. My old coach would overhand round house kicks when given the chance. It's all timing in my opinion.

    In the end, the best backbreaker award still goes to Bolo

    In that case, Bolo should've been Bane.

    Austrian School of Dirty Boxing > Keynesian Fighting Method.

    That's all you need to know.

    Ok. As the trackback radio cliche goes (albeit slightly modified), I'm long time listener, first time poster (go on, call me an00b. I double dog dare ya). ;)

    I've been looking into KFM for about 6 months now, from an armchair perspective, watching videos, etc, but attended my first class in Melbourne, at a seminar run by Graham Good (KFM ambassador for UK and Australia...our should I say "Defense Lab", because Graham stayed on the Norman side of the split from Justo). I'll start by saying that, while I was impressed with the system, KFM's commercial attitude had me a little wary. Having said that, it truly stands up to its claims...a statement all the more impressive when considering the session ended more like an Amway meeting, then a martial arts class. ;)

    For myself, KFM can be best described as "modified Panantuken". If you've ever seen the kind of stuff that the likes of Inosanto and Balicki teach, consider that, with less of the fancy hubud stuff. It's also similar to Muay Thai, except instead of generating power by rotating on a horizontal arc, they do so be bobbing and weaving on more of a vertical plane. This lends itself attacking all over the body, from the top if the head, to the bottom of the foot, at will. This makes it great for street defense.

    Criticisms: Like Krav Maga, it really is a young man's art, requiring its practitioners to be super fit, and prone to injuries. As mentioned earlier, they gear themselves toward commercial success, marketing themselves as movie choreographers, and a means to make money etc (having said that, at least they are honest about it...if you have a good product, after all, why not promote it).

    Overall, I'd have to say that I'm impressed with the system's fighting philosophy, techniques, and they say they teach and apply what they teach. They truly teach their students to explore what works, and the Pensador is highly efficient, and ergonomic. Personally, in the true spirit of JKD, I'll be picking the eyes out of it, but it certainly a system worthy of our respect.

    I've heard a lot of stuff said about KM, but never that.
