    He must have been at a seminar with Dux, Dillman and Ashida Kim LOL.
    I have only utilized two techniques from PPCT in the last ten years, the (straight) arm-bar take-down and a transport wrist-lock. Sadly, I am a PPCT instructor, and have shared the Kool-Aid as part of my job.
    Law enforcement agencies have to provide some training in order to limit liability, and PPCT stands behind their techniques as being legally & medically sound and tactically effective. If I were trying to build my own martial art, I wouldn't incorporate very many of their nuggets.

    Surely does explain his slant. Just wondering where he got his Dan in Judo...?

    @Slamdunc...I feel your pain on the PPCT business. Hated that stuff, even though it was mandatory training.

    The administration believes that they have to give you something, even if it won't work. I did have an open-minded PPCT Master Instructor; he was also a Judoka.
    As for Mr. Irby, surely the sanctioning bodies (USJA or USJF) can verify his credentials if we ever find out where he obtained his training and rank.
