    Can I purchase it in paperback? Hardback is too expensive!

    Before I do read your history, did you ever go all the way? I mean, we all grew up doing other things, but did you ever hit the home run?

    I'm not being a dumbass, I'm asking somebody who is trying to tell us what is and isn't a CMA technique what their CMA experience is.
    Was referring to Hannibal, but thanks for stepping in to sub for him ;)

    Experience it seems does not wisdom create.

    The relevance is that a trained person in a decent system would've eaten that trained CMA'er up.
    Then you've gotta consider the revelance of a serious post to a joke thread...

    This clip shows that streetfighting isn't necessarily the best testing ground for martial arts skill, as those you fight are often untrained and weak.
    Yet...you plunge ahead...

    It depends how well they were trained doesn't it ?
    No. Anyone trained to throw a jab and ONLY a jab would've knocked either guy on his ass BUT THIS IS OBVIOUSLY NOT AN EXAMPLE OF A LEGIT MA PRACTITIONER OF ANY STRIPE.

    I'm sure that kung fu boy might be good at forms competitions, though.
    Why in the **** would you make such an outlandish observation after seeing such a short and uninformative clip? He doesn't talk about his history in MA, he just postures a little, then flails.

    It's an example of a kung fu practitioner.

    Because he obviously can't fight, his kung fu is probably only good for forms competitions.

    An example of a crap kung fu practicioner. Though the McDojos outnumber the legit ones, so they end up giving others a bad reputation.

    I'll give you a hint: You and your kwoon are not a unique, shining beacon of righteousness and worthwhile training in the feculent swamp that is your art.

    It's not the art. It's the person, and the training.

    Of course, teaching realistically helps too. I've never been told that stances and fancy things were meant for actual fighting.

    It's a matter of looking in the "feculent swamp" of McDojos (read: it's not the art), to find something that actually gives you the "worthwhile training".

    Picture this as a pyramid. The individual stands on top of the training, which stands on top of the style. If the base is a realistic and alive delivery system then it is indeed up to how the school trains and the individual. If the style is dead then it disintegrates when the school or the individual attempts to make the training realistic and alive.

    In the case of Eagle Claw, the pyramid base is made out of rice crackers.

    Blah blah blah, style versus style, whatever.

    He dropped wannabe thug life right on his dumbass. Good on him, even if his stance did appear to be something out of a Jet Li flick.
