    Update SBG site - aliveness 101

    This is a page I was just informed about from Straight Blast. Matt Thorton breaks down aliveness once again in a meaningful way.

    Pay particular attention to the part about delivery systems. It's about what works folks.

    So when I say two grappling styles look alike, I get flamed, but when Matt Thorton does it, it's ok?

    It’s a great article, yet I think it must be noted that patterns learnt in a ‘non alive’ fashion CAN be practiced and synthesised into ones overall game in an ‘alive’ setting. The ‘dead pattern’ TMA stuff CAN be ‘brought to life’… and it it’s worth doing because there is a whole bunch of good stuff tucked away in obscure arts. That said, if one wants a rapid, high percentage chance of being able to fight quickly I think Thorton is bang on the money…but I’m glad there are still innovators out there synthesising old ways into a 21st century arena.

    You're going to get flamed just for saying that. Nice one, genius.

    :D

    But I don’t believe in throwing a new person in over their head and having them spar in the first few months of training?

    Yes, we don't usually suggest throwing a new person into sparring. There are far better methods.
    He says they don't advocate throwing people into sparring in the first few months (usually). Has anyone here ever been to a school where you didn't spar for the first few months? My TKD school had me sparring within 2 weeks.

    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
