    I don't think Phil is a troll. He's just that sad.

    Koto, he's obviously being sarcastic dude...and much like his jokes, his martial abilities are quite lame.

    The humane society doesn't require a marriage license to adopt a pet as far as I am aware.

    the point of the tube is to practice accuracy. That's all :happy: I haven't read his article in a long time so I don't remember how much he went into detail on the variations of the drills used with the tube or why it is used at all. I will describe them briefly.

    Drill #1 At first a student holds up the tube without moving it and the striker practices geting two fingers into the tube from a hands down position.

    Drill #2 Then the striker steps back and has to step in and strike.

    Drill #3 The tube holder moves the tube around randomly and the striker attacks the moving target.

    Drill #4 Tube still moving the striker steps back and has to step in and strike.

    Put simply.... the drill is nothing more then an accuracy drill. Kind of like aiming small (The pissed off Mel Gibson killing the redcoats scene in "The Patriot" comes to mind) :qright1: and is only a very small part of a much larger equation. I hope this helps.

    Well yes, that it is used for target practice is obvious. But in the "real world", things move fast and are harder than your fingers.

    That's not to say it's a bad drill, though. For begginers or whatever it isn't so bad, as long as it's not the only drill you do, and you have more advanced drills. But knowing Phil, that is probably the only drill he uses for practice.

    you are 100% correct. It's only a drill to work on basic accuracy. There are many... many.... many more drills to strengthen those skills :biggrin:

    Yep, as long as he doesn't break a sweat or hurt his fingers.
