Ran across his website. Anyone have any experience/info about this guy? I've heard his name before, but can't remember if it was in a good way or a bad way. Sniffing major Bullshido odors...check out "The Modular System...Learn in Six - Teach in Twelve". Seriously, a non-player can start teaching in 12 hours? Lament...the hours I have wasted!!!
EDIT: Check out the 1st Commandment on the Ten Commandments page. "...over a million years the principle has stayed the same." - uh, has mankind and its forebears been using knives that long? If we have, I'm gonna go kick my anthro prof's ass for teaching me some untrue ****.
NEW EDIT: Nevermind, I'm gonna kick my own ass for apparently sleeping in class...homo erectus and his peeps were hacking-and-slashing since at least 1.3 million years back or so. Anyway, back to the original point...anyone have any info on this guy?

I've heard the name too but I dunno nothing about Bram. Looks like he is a Modern Arnis guy. There's a lack of FMA topics here recently so I'm gonna look into this.

He train with Mr. Scott Sonnon and go to Leningrad with him. Russians say Mr. Bram Frank is cold steel expert.

I think the guy is legit. I know a couple of guys that have embraced the modular system, and it seems to be pretty easy to pick up. The focus is on simplicity gross motor movement. I've seen a little of his video material, and he seems to take that approach with everything he presents.
A lot of thought went into his gunting folder as well. I've had my buddies do some pressure point and control techniques with a gunting trainer. It works. Seeing is believing.

The Gunting is the stupidest knife design ever.

I've met Bram Frank. Had a class with him at a seminar a couple of years ago. His concepts might work for some. I know some people, mainly LEO's, who just love it. Personally, I prefer the knife as a lethal force tool, period.
Re: Gunting. I have one. It is a little on the gumpy side. Rides WAY too high in the pocket. I also prefer folders with a 3.5-four inch blade. I find them better for utility, which is of course what we use knives for 99.9999999% of the time.
Just my two cents, of course.
