    Cane jiu jutsu? Do you know anything about the martial arts or did you get all your ninjutsu training from videos?

    Sure, I have had real training by real instructors in various arts. I definitely agree that the best way to learn something, where possible, is with a live instructor who can provide feedback and correction. But I don't think we should discount the possibility of learning some good things in books and videos. I also think that, though the name may strike some people funny, we shouldn't pooh pooh the value in a technique based on the name it has been given. We could miss out on a lot of valuable knowledge that way. And, though any analysis of a martial arts technique is going to be subjective, IMHO, this one definitely has real world applications. I think it's good to learn all the techniques we can from any source available, use what's useful to us & eliminate what isn't.

    I have no idea how good, bad or indifferent this program is. The name just threw me for a loop. The promoter's post script at the end clears it all up. sort of.

    PS. There is NO Black Belt in the box. I am not selling “black belts” or giving them away, the term Black Belt in a Box means that the training inside the package is done by a Black Belt…so it’s like having a “black belt in a box”.

    It's been a very long time since I've heard the name Ted Gambordella.
    He claims to be "Dr. Death," the deadliest man alive... that alone should raise your BS giger counter a notch.

    I got his package as a kid on e-bay sometime around 2000. It basically contained a bunch of his books in PDF format, his "asian philosophy" where he pretty much bashes "asian philosophy" claiming along the lines of "I am a Christian, and do not condone heathenism," and titles like "100 deadliest karate moves." I'll have to do a bit more digging to get the specifics. It's been a very very long time while since I last touched it. (He did have 3 decent PDFs with wrist locks, chokes, and Jiu Jitsu basics. No more no less.)

    Actually, I'm surprised Gambordella's name hasn't come up before. Was always curious if he was merely fluffing his resume, or if he was outright bullshido. The later is a strong suspicion, since one of his pdfs is about the difference between "chi" and "ki."

    More to come if I find it.

    ***Note, the cd package he sold at the time had a copy of Bruce Lee's fists of fury, I think. I sincerely doubt that's legal. Just FYI.

    I agree, not all training by video is bad, a technique can be reviewed on video.
    A whole system should not be learned that way though!
    A video review of a technique you have done in class by a different instructor may help you improve the technique as sometimes you are doing something wrong and your instructor may have forgotten to cover an aspect or may not have been taught by his instructor the full nuances of the move.

    As he says he covers all the Judo throws I would specifically be interested in knowing if this part alone is good, that is worth the money by itself, I would toss the rest!

    Any WMA peeps see this as Bartitsu? or some bastardization of it?

    It isn't Bartitsu, but likewise I doubt that it claims to be (or that Dr. Ted has ever heard of Bartitsu).

    I remember his advertising in MA magazines back in the 80s; looks like the same old hype.

    How can you ignore an art whose name contains, not just 'Bar' but 'tits'? If it was spelled 'Bartitsue' it would sum up a good bit of my 20's in one go.
