    Haha, ah, I don't know much, I think they are based out of Melbourne somewhere. Such legit techniques!

    Found some more info, found this 'fight' vid when I was randomly checking out InfiniteMMA's forums for BJJ comp notices: "Nexus BJJ altercation incl Kit Dale"

    - Think the brown belt is Kit Dale, hehe, looks like him.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    When I do a demonstration, I ALWAYS outline the steps and levels of compliance. I'm getting to a story, so bear with me.

    This is pretty much my thought on the scenario.

    When I was with the sheriff’s office, one of my extra-duties was community service. I was assigned to do a one-hour program for the local office of the US Forestry Service. Their contingent was thirteen females and three males; for some reason, even the males were required to attend this training geared toward female evasion and escape. As I was giving my thoughts, I said something like ‘it doesn’t matter how many krotty belts you have, the bottom line is you do what you have to do in order to survive’.

    The supervisor was adamant that he be my attacker, and I outlined CliffDOG’s levels of resistance. This guy was 6’- 4” around 245 pounds; neither completely fit, nor a lard-ass, and seemed like a nice enough fellow (I’m 6’ – 1” 170). On the initial rear-grab (bear-hug), he snatched me up and flailed me about like a rag-doll; so much for 10%. I actually had to head-butt and groin-grab just to break free.

    I ended up with the cartilage between three of my ribs being turned into dust. If I hadn’t had my body-armor on, I’d have been really fucked.

    I later learned from the staff there that this guy is an ass-hat and is a TKD Black Belt. Apparently, I offended him by making the comment about belts not being a factor in the real world. I would really enjoy run into this guy in a different setting; I’d take a DQ just to get to kick him square in the sack.

    This may be a work, but many of us who instruct have run into the "nightmare uke".

    I was trying to demo a move at a throwdown several years ago for someone who asked to see it. The guy who I picked as my partner could not understand the concept of minimal resistance. After trying to initiate the move three times and encountering 100% resistance every time despite explaining the need for compliance, I realized I was about to go all "Hulk smash!" on the guy.

    Him being a relative newbie, I opted for a different uke. Problem solved.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Yeah, it's a joke. The school they're at is Nexus in Coburg, Melbourne, Australia. Murat Karadenizli, a Pedro Sauer BB, is the head instructor (not in OP's vid). They're a very legit competition school. The brown belt with the shaved head is Kit Dale, a Peter de Been student who does pretty well in competition.

    Geez, I would have sued him. Hackbart vs. Cincinnati Bengals.
    A demo is not a carte blanche to **** someone up. Nothing is.
