    Sure takes a long time trying not to admit that he was wrong.

    Wow. I guess I am hearing a lot of B.

    By his logic Alexander Karelin (a multiple time olympic gold wrestler, as I am sure everyone on this site knows already) would surely lose to a true street fighter, because after all he's purely sport and that doesn't work in the street. The double leg takedown is as useful as a flying spinning back knuckle?

    How about, there a techniques that are useful, that are tested under realistic full contact environment against non compliant opponents (like the jab/cross) and there are techniques that are just not very useful. It doesn't matter if the arena is the street or the ring in that sense.

    He doesn't even understand why everyone disagreed with his video.

    It wasn't an issue of him saying one thing and being misunderstood. It wasn't even an issue of street vs. sport.

    The problem was he was saying "this is how you deal with someone who uses the guard on you", but he does not have a clue what actually happens when you end up in guard and what dangers you face. If he's willing to give instruction on one situation that he does not understand, you can bet he's willing to give instruction on all sorts of stuff he does not understand.

    Oh come on, if this were true, would he really make an eight minute long video explaining how he wasn't wrong and the other guy was arrogant?

    Actually, this kind of makes me wonder. What if some ke?po/whatever guy posted an anti guard video where he explained how to maintain good posture, kill your opponent's hip movement, trap an arm, and then gouge the eyes out?

    Oh he does. He's speaking to his students not us.

    I remember this BS when I was in full larp mode. Instead of hopping on the mat, testing his theories and discussing the outcome he obfuscates the point, insults the "others" and talks to his "real" audience. The stammering and 7 minutes is a give away. IMO, he recorded that video while he was still angry.

    It is the larper justification defense. I remember it well back when I thought my TMA was the bestest most strongest art EVAH. Sport Martial Arts has rules, we don't so when they try a rule based technique....................................KNIFE STAB.......EYE GOUGE.......GROIN SMASH.

    It'd be called Kina Mutai, and he'd be called a JKD instructor.

    It would be a great eye-gouging video, but really, eye-gouging is terrible from a self defense stand point in todays society.

    Also there is the caveat that no ke?po/W.C guy would know how to use the guard correctly/grapple and still stick with Ke?po/W.C
