    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I am always saddened when you see these people who could not fight their way out of wet toilet paper mix up some arts, as they "assume" they know better than truly qualified people that this new hybrid art is better as the sum of the parts should be better than a single piece.

    sad.

    Japanese concepts do not mesh well with some of the Chinese concepts.

    30 year old masters who declare themselves Head of the Martial Family(Soke)? Lame and sad.

    How about the photos where the two instructors are trying to butch up and look mean and all knowing. Holding Katana and Jian.

    Till the day I pass from this realm I will always call BS when I see it and this is just another big pile of hot mess.

    being that neither man has enough skills to be truly setting up their own system, I would avoid this as nothing more than nocturnal emissions from some larpers who wanted to be masters of the martial arts rather than actually master the martial arts.

    they have nothing but a big hot mess.

    I have been practicing since I was a kid and I am 46 this year. I do not claim to be a master but I know what works and does not work for me. I can teach others what works for them as well.

    What you will never see me do is mish mash arts and put on some version of a masters red belt.

    Belts, lineages mean nothing if your material does not work.

    OK, I have submitted a question on their page. Kept it simple and asked for the Mantis lineage prior to lol Shihan/Sifu Barnes.

    I will follow up should the reply seem amenable to enquiry. If not might take it a bit more seriously and ask more penetrating questions. Not to jump the gun but I think they may be MABS worhty at some point.

    On a related side note the org they are 'registered' with, the ASMAA-SDF
    have a facebook page with some fairly poor lookling 'self defence' shizzle on it:

    https://www.facebook.com/protectyourself.ie

    Looks like buddy buddy mutual admiration society. Could be wrong. Anyone know anything about a Mr Dave Turton 9th Dan and the highest ranked self defence instructer in Europe?

    Couldn't resist. Sorry. Sometimes you just go with whatever comes to mind.

    I've got a good feeling about this one.

    Amazing how some people have the perfect mixture of ignorance and naivity to believe their nominal effort over a short time will eclipse the life-long developments of millions over generations.
