Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

I was reading a book about signs of mental illness. It taked about delusions of grandeur and gave an example of a mentally ill man who imagined that he was a police officer and would patrol his street and stop passerbys and question them. He carried around an "ID" card which was obviously something he just printed himself but the man really believed he was a policeman. Berador could be like this man. Maybe he is mentally ill and really belives that he is a ninja grandmaster. He could suffer from Narcisitic Personality Disorder, in which one of the symptoms are delusions that one is a superhuman, messiah or a god. I knew a guy who had this and he believed he was the god of war. In reality he was a bald, fat, unemployed guy living in a youth hostel who trained in bujinkan for seven years and never mastered the most basic kata. These people are attracted to the martial arts becuase of the promise of empowerment, and they seek this because they are unhappy with themselves and deep-down know that they are fuckups.
Maybe berador really belives that he fought in a tournament and is the Soke of Kawachi Yon Tengu Ryu. It definatly fits the empowered role that they seek.

Man I hate to say it but "dong and pony show" is pretty funny.
Is it OK to give AK credit for a funny typo?

*. They guy on top is riding too high on the hips. He's almost past the guys pelvis at the start of the mount.
* At no point does the guy on top attempt to move his legs. It's very important when grappling to keep your knees on the ground during the mount. This guy is holding himself up on his toes. No good reason for this other than to make it easier for the guy on the bottom to push him over. There is NO justifiable reason to do it otherwise. From the mount the entire length of your shins need to be on the ground so you can use your legs as a base and your knees as a fulcrum to shift your weight down on your opponent. Leverage and gravity do the rest.
*. There is way too much empty space between these guys. When executing a mount you never want the guy on the bottom to be able to move freely, or have any room for leverage to push against you. It's very simple to stay very close during a mount since the person on top has the most control over movement. All you have to do is keep your center pressed against them.
*. What the heck is the guy on top supposed to be doing with that guys wrists? Why the hell is he using BOTH hands to control his wrists to begin with? From that distance you don't need both of the other guys wrists for anything. Much less, what this guy is doing and using them to control both of his arms, at the same time, in the same way.
Why? Exactly What submission or method of immobilization requires you to have both of your hands on the other guys wrists at the same time. Why on earth would a person knowledgeable in grappling even do that? You can control their arms way easier from their shoulders and elbows as much as you need to for a pin. This guy is trying to pin by holding both of his opponents hands over his head with enough space between them for a cat to run in between them.
*. At what point in serious grappling have you ever seen someone sitting bolt upright during a grapple? Even if someone manages to push against your wrists you don't allow your body to move up and away from them that much.
*. The guy on top drops his left hand limply to the side purposely not defending against the foot that he for a second attempted to move. He's not even trying, even attempting to keep himself from instinctually defending.
So yeah, it's total crap. But it will sadly do what it is intended to do. Convince ignorant ninja-wannabe's that they will learn to have REAL ULTIMATE POWER.A lie gets half-way around the world before the truth has time to get it's pants on. - Winston Churchhill

Even though I'm open to the possibilty that he is genueinly delusional and not a deliberate fraud, I'm still not going to go soft on him for the punk-down article, or punk-down therapy ;)
