    It appears he teaches, or at least trains, at some sort of MMA facility. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to replicate this challenge against some trained fighters. I wonder if he'll make a video like that.

    What was the point of it? The video shows us that head movement and footwork makes it harder for someone to hit you. It's not like he's dodging or moving in a new way.

    Also, I can't 100% trust his videos because I think the underlying goal behind every one of them is to get more hits to his website.

    So he got clipped, and with gloves that give you a bigger surface to land a hit on someone? So yeah, he was wrong and didn't make them miss 100% of the time, no big deal but he made them miss most of the time.

    Is it a question of the guy in the video being able to reproduce that performance, or being able to duck and weave like against trained opponents in general?

    He still got hit in the face even though he used more than just head movement, they were wearing gloves and he was taller than most of them.
    He would **** you up I have no doubts about it,

    What is your point? He got hit, nobody is perfect but he still used his superior training to evade dozens of punches

    He is youtube channel does not say "oh lookz only weabing you needz for STREETZ" no he shows many other things like standing submissions and combinations

    Gloves make most peoples' punches slower and easier to parry.
    Are you seriously suggesting that you can land more punches with full sized boxing gloves on, than without?

    Why not at least use MMA gloves?
    I myself have never seen a streetfight where anyone is using boxing gloves.

    Yes he is actually introducing the 'worst' elements of the street vs sport argument; protective equipment and rules.


    His opening statement was bullshit, he didn't play "fair" and that "test" is mostly worthless; at best it provides us with a "Well no **** Sherlock."

    Mostly i'm just cracking up that the "it works on an untrained opponent" isn't getting more ridicule, and is even being heralded as some valid benchmark all of a sudden.

    Seriously, wtf people.

    So it appears our boy Travis has quite an interesting background.
    I'm liking this douchenozzle less and less...

    Oh hey guys look what I found:

    He has a website where he teaches fighting through free videos and an "inner circle" or "members only" section where ofcourse you gotta cough up some cash.

    http://howtofightnow.com/

    Reminds me of Stronglifts5x5, Mehdi (the founder) took a concept that was no BS and worked, then spun a bunch of BS around it to make money.

    This guy may be good at slipping punches but he's an asshole.

    To imply to beginners that they can learn to slip punches in a real fight by training at home and ****.

    This appears to be the same person:


    (from 2010)
    Travis Roesler may have been educated in the Ivy League but he made a career out of weed, police said yesterday.

    Roesler, 27, a former football player for the University of Pennsylvania, a mixed martial artist and Wharton School grad, was arrested Wednesday night after police raided his University City apartment - which doubled as his martial-arts studio - and allegedly found $1.2 million worth of high-grade marijuana.
    Roesler was described as a "one badass dude" and "the master of devastating body blows."
    http://articles.philly.com/2010-05-2...-mma-marijuana


    note this from the howtofightnow.com about page:

    Soon enough I was referred to as the “master of devastating body blows.”
    http://howtofightnow.com/about/




    There is also this:


    (from last August)
    Travis Roesler, 29, of Parkway Place in Red Bank, was arrested on August 20 by Ptl. Ian May for Simple Assault. He was released pending a court date.

    and his likely Sherdog profile:

    It was Holy Moment that brought that up, not the guy in the video. Second, it usually gets ridiculed as a point when the technique/tactic itself is actually BS. It's not as if slipping, ducking, and parrying won't work against a trained opponent. If you want him to do the demonstration again with MMA gloves I'm sure you can ask him in that channel.
