    Bruce was a big inspiration to me......thirty years ago.

    I have to agree with The Wastrel when it comes to how nauseating Bruce's deification was and is.

    Wise? I dunno. How good do you have to be to do it correctly would be a better question. As far as a technique, it seems pretty kempo-ish. Step to the side to avoid a strike, punch the arm to stop it's momentum, and slow the opponent's turn toward you, kick to the opposite knee to disable, and destroy the rest. Pretty standard fare.

    30 years ago I had his nunchuck poster on the back of my bedroom door, and practiced 3 hours a day! LOL

    Let's look at it closely.

    There was no block or control on count one.

    On count 2 he closed his own centerline, and he had his initial attack as a kick, which leaves him off ballance with an opponent whose ballance he hasn't yet disrupted.

    Whatever the rest of the combo is, is irrelavent at this point due to the failure on the first 2 counts.

    Do not attempt this technique unless you have a cooperative opponent!

    That is all.

    His demo is dumb. He chose a technique to do, and then started in the wrong position, crossed over to correct that, and began awkwardly. As a technique, he is on the outside, closed off from opponent's weapons, and attacking wide open areas. What's wrong with it?

    Well, I would have taken control of the arm from the get go, but that's just me.
