    I wish that I would have seen this thread back when you asked about Burton. His classes are AWESOME. I trained with him weekly for two years. We got training from Randy Couture, Barret Yoshida, Egan and Enson Inoue--pride fighters--and even Bj Penn's coach. Burton saw to it that we were getting the training that was working NOW in MMA. He also brought in Matt Thornton--someone mentioned his name in a post reply. Burton has an excellent all around mixed martial arts game and is an excellent teacher. I actually did training by video after I left Hawaii for about 6 months. It is just as effective but you need to practice and go along with him on the video. He has many many licensed teachers around the world that train a majority by video and then will come to a seminar or Burton will visit them. Its pretty sweet. We even got to train kali stick fighting and knife fighting. Burton isn't about looking good he is about effective training that works in a street fight right now. He constantly trains with top notch fighters to keep his training current and effective. He is excellent in adding to your martial arts repertoire.

    Moved from MABS because there was no claim of questionable behavior made in this thread.

    Richardson's also done some Zulu stickfighting in Africa, which is pretty neat.

    Yeah, I liked his Zulu stickfighting video. That's pretty cool. Also all the stick sparring that he does in flip flops! And he also appears in one of the Dog Brother videos. I think it is the Sinawale video, but I may be mistaken on that.

    The reason why you see Burton in flip flops--aka Slippahs in Hawaiian pidgin--is because Burton is a huge advocate in training in the same clothes/attire that you would cruise around in. SO that if/when you do have to engage in an altercation, you are doing so in your regular wear. In this case it would be at the beach or some where along those lines. Obviously we didn't train in suits/ties etc. But that was his way of keeping things as real situation as possible. The guy has some killer training for real life situations. Like against the wall in a bar etc. It's awesome... brah.

    This is one of the positives; not only should the system continue to evolve, it should have its basis somewhere in the real world.

    Yeah, I know. He says that in the comment section of the youtube video.
