Don't fool yourself, or listen to the "he has no kung fu" guys, he'd give a number of people trouble, even with his crappy videos. Before you say it yes, I know him. No, I will not defend his actions or the crappy kung fu. The Chinese Shaolin-Centers had a very interesting set up. Most of the original instructs, myself included, had trained and achieved rank in other arts. So, IMO, it is why you could watch a test and techniques would vary wildly from state to state. Instructors were TKD guys, Judo guys, Kyokushin guys, boxers etc etc etc. So, depending on where you trained everything was modified and some decent, most mediocre and many were bad. Jake was actually ina decent hard sparring school, we actually got in trouble at one point.
    I would have to see evidence contrary to his internet videos. He seems to have drifted off into fantasy land.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Yeah, I was not terribly thrilled when I found out about this, but Master Ken does want to appeal to as wide an audience as possible and, like it or not, Jake Mace has a pretty decent online following. My instructor and his girlfriend actually visited Jake's home not long ago as part of some home garden event--apparently, he's BIG into home gardening--and said he was very nice to them, but that's all he really has going for him.

    On a side note, I have sent Jake Mace invitations to come and spar at our dojo on a few occasions, and never gotten a single response except for him putting me on his newsletter mailing list.

    I have spoken with Master Ken (click "Behind the Moustache," in my sig, below) and remain friendly with him. You may have noticed over the last several months, Master Ken's Privates have included experts from many arts. This is, indeed, an effort of cross-pollenization between Enter The Dojo and other Youtube channels, an attempt to attract fans from each to the other. The current push arose from some sessions at a recent Youtube creators' conference (I think it was at CES, but I may be wrong).

    Rest assured that Master Ken thinks all these other arts are bullshit. For the record, this is not an official communique from Master Ken, and it's probably mostly bullshit.

    Carry on...

    It's almost like some of you aren't listening. Where in my post did I say what he was teaching wasn't bullshit? I didn't.

    even with his crappy videos.
    You don't have to take my word for ****. My point is, don't judge how he does or does not spar by the **** he puts into compliant videos.
