    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    But has anyone actually ever bought this, i know it's Bullshido and that, but i'm still curious about what this guy says in his books.
    Yes I bought his tapes back in 97. A couple of guys pitched in to buy them because we were looking for something to break us out of a root. We sort of hit a training plateau. So we figured what the hell.

    Got the tapes and books and sat down to watch.

    Then we prayed as the tapes went on that there was something worthwile and something we didn't already know. No such luck. All the stuff he shows is pretty much already taught in many schools nothing new or groundbreaking. Pretty much a mix of what you see in WT, Kempo, and JKD schools. They were poor quality and the presentation was pathetic. Oh and there was the occasional slur against hispanics.

    We returned the tapes and asked for a refund which took longer than it did to get the tapes in the first place.

    I actually bought some books from him in ~1995. Total crap. The grammar and logic were so poor, they remind me of some of the "angrier" threads here in Bullshido. The weird thing was, there were all these threats directed towards you in their material - "we'll come and find you if you critisize us publically", " we know how to find peolpe". It was pretty bizarre.

    That's ... that's a JOKE, right?

    Like, this doesn't threaten people who buy his stuff? Really? You've GOTTA be joking.

    Nope. All true as far as I remember. My brother used to joke that the Speedman had called, and he wanted my head back. I'll see if I still have the book - it was ****, but I think it's in the basement with the Thighmaster (okay, THAT was a joke).

    I saw the ad in Black Belt and drew my own conclusions, and that was when I was at the height of my tenure in a McDojo!

    His tapes are **** quality and sell for almost $70 (!).
    Worst part is the way his verbally abuses his assistants. A real shithead.

    I too wanted to move with the deadly speed and agility of a hungry panther on benzadrine.
