yeah i remember seeing some of his other **** ass vids on here too, like his vs thai clinch stuff. seems like a prick.
Well, being a KK practitioner, I'd have no problem with this guy's little test (no punches to the head), but we'd be doing away with those pillow style gloves for the body shots. If you can get any of those throws on me while I'm putting bare knuckles and knees to your body and legs, then we'll talk.

The only thing to do now is to launch a 200-page challenge thread against this guy, send some very eager young bully down to test him, and complain that the aikido guy was big and strong and probably secretly practiced BJJ when the bully runs out of gas and loses in the second round.
Yo do know this is the exact argument TMAers use to perpetuate their bullshit?

Obviously his "tests" are still delusional, but baby steps dammit.

just look at the way he made that vid, its basically a highlight video of himself where he even adds notations of where he throws people, because he assumes people watching are too dumb to understand how intricate he is being. nevermind that he could pick half those people up with one fucking arm. he even has stupid music in the background. and then he will bow and scrape and say "oh this isnt meant to show me being awesome, im just trying to spread the knowledge and test things, im not a great fighter or anything, gwarble gwarble gwarble" while in his head he is thinking "**** these guys, im the fucking ****. i would WRECK anyone in a real fight. sho nuff"
every single fucking vid he has is with someone smaller. when he shows himself breaking out of a thai clinch by casually pushing the guy away with one hand vs someone who is stronger than him and has even a faint idea what they are doing, hes worth listening to, until then, hes another sack o crap selling bullshit.
at least when i make vids i dont try and claim they ARENT of me being fucking great. of course i think im great. i AM great. im captain awesome of the USS supernuts. i forget where im going with this.
Now I remember where I saw this......
Rest of what I said, because the internet really cares:
PizDoff - You could have told me this was BJJ or SAMBO or Judo or another karate against this so called karate and I would have said the same thing: Sample size is too small, two people? MAybe more I can't remember now. Going against smaller people? At least go against people your own size.
This video proves nothing to me except that karate place likely doesn't produce people capable of throwing solid striking combinations. ALSO LOL HIGHLIGHT VIDEO.
His glasses were just to stop him using his laser vision.
When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
"what's the best thing about aikido then?"
"To be defeated by your enemies, to be driven by them from the field of battle, and to hear the lamentations of your women." ermghoti
I'm down. I may have a bum shoulder, but I went to a class on "The Approach" which is based of Silat so my gameplan is just to slice this guy like a piece of sashimi.
