He looks like a nood to me, also. The "Free Sparring" video that was linked in the thread earlier appears to be a pretty typical Seven Star Mantis reeling workout.
The only thing that makes him more loveable than the others is the fact that he doesn't completely bash everything else and at least acknowledges other arts (Which is why I came to Bullshido. To learn)
I fully agree with Street Fighter's first post.
I don't like the look of their sparring (see the videos on the web site) .. well first of all it doesn't look like (in the 45 seconds I watched) that anyone got hit. They were going slow enough that to evade attacks it was simple enough to draw back into a cat stance - I haven't yet really seen this done quickly enough in sparring. For a name like 'free' sparring, it looked very predetermined. On the whole looked like they were just applying the basics -- I don't want to judge the whole school by their sparring videos, but it did not look like anyone was resisting. So that's my little rant :ninjadanc

Well, it wasn't sparring. The fact that that is what the guy called free sparring discredits any leg up on the pile I thought he had in my first post (that was only after reading some of the question and answers on the site which sounded fairly reasonable).
Nak, this question has been done to death on multiple threads. Use the search function.
