    Ninja-quick edit! This seems to be descending into name-calling so I'll stop here.

    Oh yeah, it's this thread: http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...t=36200&page=1
    Let's be real you took it there with this post.

    Indeed, and I don't apologise for it, because nothing has changed to alter my impression of what was going on in that thread.

    I've trained in systema for six months and reached somewhat different conclusions. At one point, there were people willing to pressure test the art. They were replaced by aikido wanna-bes who prefered camo to magic pants. All of them thinking they were learning the deadly. Sad.

    There was a political bust-up several years ago between the then-brass and senior students who wanted to take it in the direction of heavy pressure testing. For some reason that I never caught up with, the use of MMA gloves and headgear was very controversial - seemed like a no-brainer to me.

    I don't know many details, but Kevin Secours is now teaching "Combat Systema", which is probably what you have in mind as the opposite of deadly aiki-wannabes. If I was still training in the System, I'd favor that approach too; without it, it's too easy for the training to become academic.

    I don't suppose you'd like to elaborate on this?
    "So, yeah, Zen teachers may well insult you, work you to the bone, hit you with sticks, shout verbal abuse at you, and punch the **** out of you.
    And when the ****'s been punched out of you, you might just find that you're far better-off without it." - Vieux Normand

    "So in short, BJJ wins again. BJJ, and chainmail." - TheMightyMcClaw

    "On bullshido, your opinions are not sacred, neither are your feelings." - Scrapper

    "You entered the lions' den. Don't bitch if you get eaten." - danniboi07

    "Needless to say, it's much easier to clear a bunch of drunk kids out of your house when you're yelling GTFO and carrying a samurai sword." - DerAuslander

    "Eventually, I realized it doesn't matter what art you train, what matters is the method in which you train. Training in an alive manner, under skilled and qualified instruction, is the single most important aspect of gaining martial skill. All else is window dressing." - JNP : Saying it how it is!

    Just that you quickly reach the limit of tolerable risk in training bare-knuckled and without head and face protection, so to me it makes perfect sense to pad up.
