    Guys like these give research into Okinawan kata and the study of bunkai a bad name.

    Avoid.

    It looks similar to a lot of Wing Chun. I don't understand why they stand on little cushions though...

    Standing on things to develope balance is a part of advanced _ing _un too. Not many schools have them (and many other CMAs use them), but they look something like this:

    http://www.wingchunhall.com/files/wingchun2.htm (at bottom)

    Seems to use many _ing _un positions (ban, tan) but a wider stance, and no sense of center, base, forward energy, direct attack, etc., etc.

    And neither do they. ;) That's the trouble with most, if not all, of the traditional martial arts and these arts that try to rehash or combine traditional nonsense -- they never put these things to the test with genuinely resisting opponents and then analyze the results. All they do is recite the party line of the benefits of that sort of training, subject it to cooperative training (and guess what? surprisingly it works!), and pat each other on the back about how clever they are. Until I see something work against good skilled fighters, I presume it is crap. Funny how these websites never seem to have clips of that.

    I think we need a new acronym for martial arts like this: GMA (gh3y martial arts).

    That looks like generic chin-na, badly done (in terms of effectiveness). Note how many of the 'locks' are reliant on the attacker attempting to maintain the grip in a specific way - as such a normal person would just break away which leaves you with a needlessly diverse set of grab-escapes.... but lacking the obvious "smack them in the face" type universal defence.
    You are a total Douchbag. Train more, post nevermore.

    Crappling hidden in both Karate Kata and Wing Chun forms plus fairy dancing

    Searching for kyokushin dojo in my new locale, I came across this...interesting martial ART school. There's drumming. There's beard-ponytail combos. There's whacked out post-hippie ideas about conflict.

    There is *two handed* grappling they have discovered in kata.

    Look at this http://www.ryoute.com/karateka.asp

    They've used wing chun forms as a research base. From their website-

    'Ryoute is a style of 'Double Hand Grappling' and 'Grid Grappling' that was developed in the United Kingdom by Martin Clewett and Ian Alexander.

    'Double Hand Grappling' is a name that was given to an art developed by Martin Clewett and Robert Wall whilst researching the field of 'Karate Kata Bunkai' with help from Ian Alexander and Karl Hawkins and influenced by the work of Nathan Johnson and his associates.

    'Grid Grappling' is a name that was given to an art developed by Martin Clewett and Ian Alexander whilst researching the forms Sui-Nim-Tao, Chum-Kiu, Biu-Tze, Muk-Yan-Chong, Sanchin, Rokushu. Also influenced by the work of Nathan Johnson and his associates.
    Did I mention the beard-ponytail combos?



    Here's a disturbing video. Yes people can be this dumb. Here's proof

    I believed krotty could get no worse. Oh well.


    The grappling seems effective tho.....:bully:

    What is the problem with that, you learn similar movement in lots of schools....






    If it is a school for dancing

    That's what you get when you let people who never bothered to train with a judoka or a wrestler develop a grappling system: voila - swing dancing!

    They apparently never bothered to check with a Japanese native speaker either: IIRC, "both hands" is spelled "ryote", not "ryoute"...
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    What the hell was effective about that? It was like watching balance-impared fucktards learn to Salsa.


    Seriously, why can't traditional arts just come out and say: Hey, we're a little weak on the grappling end. Let's try to learn and incorporate some new stuff into our system.

    I guarantee you that's what would have happened 3 or 5 hundred years ago.
