    how many time does that "black belt" guy have to get hit in the face before he realizes he needs to shoot and choke Grand Master Red Stripe out?

    They very well could hurt someone doing these techniques without caution. Of course, it would be like letting someone cut you to see if you'll bleed. Doing those techniques on someone who won't let you will be a very hard thing to pull off.

    It's not quite unique. The Green Dragon Kung Fu folks also start with a black sash... still pretty funny, though. I'd be making more fun of the fact that they had grey belts for a while... :P

    Do you really think he made it to highschool? I bet his students had to convince him to wear those red striped pants. He probably thought a tiger or leopard print would make him look tougher. I wonder what he'd say if I showed up at a seminar dressed up like Rob Halford.

    Recently (as in, about a month ago), one of our Kali classes had magically transformed into a Silat class. The structure so far is first looking at the "classical" form (pretty) and repeating it until you somewhat get the point and the mechanics behind it, repeat it with a more 'modern' approach (if it's a punch defense, 'uke' throws jab-cross-jab-cross-jab-cross until the cows come home or 'tori' pulls off his technique, whichever comes first) and then drill it again in an alive manner (no designated attacker or defender, try to get your application in when the opportunity is there and if you **** up...hey, there's always ol' trusty cross.).

    By that latest step (haven't yet sparred in that class) , it still has its distinct 'flavour' but already looks a lot more like kickboxers (uh, most of us also take Jun Fan classes) who also know O-soto-gari, a few other takedowns and some basic arm- and shoulderlocks.

    So far, it's great fun. How much of it holds up in sparring remains to be seen.

    From my experience, much of it doesn't unless you outskill your opponent by a large amount in the kickboxing and grappling game.

    I used the deadly wristlock and tapped out two people. They were noobs, obviously.
