    Robert Bussey's bullshido. Videos included.

    It would seem that Robert Bussey has re-branded himself.
    As I'm sure many of you know - it was all about the Ninjutsu..

    This was of course once he visited Dr Hatsumi AFTER he had opened his first commercial school at the age of 15. (OBSCENE BULLSHIDO)

    What he is flogging now - looks like a 'corporate' solution to martial arts. He's appealing to the market of the rich and stupid.

    "Dear Robert,

    We really appreciate your willingness to help in this field of safety and health. We look forward to working with you again.

    Sincerely,
    National Safety Council,
    Greater Omaha Chapter
    Kay Farrell
    President, CEO"

    "Robert Bussey and associates: Personal Protection Consulting Firm."

    I call bullshido on this joker. My only personal experience with Robert Bussey extends back into the early nineties. I was learning "RBWI" a.k.a "Robert Bussey's Warrior International", wherein the curriculum consisted of 3 step sparring drills, forward rolls and hiding behind trees at nightime armed with a pair of broomhandle and twine nunchaku. - Don't be hard on me, I was only 13 years old. He was selling the Ninja Dream, and I wanted to be a Ninja Turtle. Our teacher - a green belt by the name of Joseph - was sold on the concept of 'death moves' and neck-breaking, etc.. so that's what we learned.

    Given the evident obsolescence of my intimate knowledge of his bullshit, is there anyone here who has had a more recent experience with a representative of his organisation?

    My first thought was to search the bullshido forum - which I did, without managing to turn up alot on his recent practices. Anyone care to contribute?

    Let me get this straight. You are saying that broomhandles and twine nunchaku aren't deadly weapons?

    I think I heard somewhere that if Bussey ever returns to Japan, he is to be fed into the engine of whatever plane he flies in on.

    Those "what if?" videos ARE hilarious. The "what if ground?" video clearly demonstrates how easy it is to escape a mounted stranglehold. I'm now utterly convinced of the effectiveness, given that the lack of partner co-operation was BLINDINGLY apparent, in something that could only be described as a WWE reversal.

    No need to phear those nasty grapplers again!

    The "What if Tackle?" clip was a riot too. And whatever happened to the "retraction" principle in the weapon encounters that Bussey was spouting off about in his interview? Aargh!!!! Toolbags!

    i like how in 2:20 of the video he gives up the back so he could flip over the guy for some vaugely illustrated submission.

    it's always a good idea to have your opponent lying on top of you instead of sitting on his kidneys and pummelling him in the back of the head.

    so many times i have opted to throw away my pistol and fight my opponents hand to hand on a rickety platform over a vat of acid...

    WTF? That is perhaps the gayest video I've ever seen. They scare me alright. Can't anyone actually HIT in their school?
