    Well i'm fairly interested in weapons training. I was more keen to see what people thought of the syllabus, and also whether anyone has heard of this guy, and what they make of his bio..

    I've previously trained in Isshinryu Karate (several years ago now), but am looking for something new. A good friend of mine is training BJJ with John Wills and I will be doing a bit of grappling with him fortnightly. What would you guys suggest, bearing in mind that i'm looking for something more traditional.

    Actually, a martial art based on Ric Flair would be hilariously awesome. The practicioners wouldn't wear gis, but sequinned robes, and instead of coloured obi, there'd be 16 rank levels, each representing one of Naitch's world title wins, and of course each rank belt would be the respective World Title belt. Noobs would learn breakfalls (the Flair Flop out of the corner, Flair's one-side-only bumping style due to the plane crash injuries), eye poke from the collar & elbow, that sort of stuff.

    Intermediate students would learn stuff like roll-ups with hooking of the uke's tights, maybe the spinning toe hold (as a precursor to learning t3h d34l3y Figure 4 Leglock) and introductory blading techniques.

    Advanced levels would get the Figure 4, multiple attacker drills (where the student is one of the multiple attackers, Four Horsemen style) and the s3cr3t kuden of the mastery of being a jet flyin', limousine ridin', kiss stealin', wheelin', dealin' son of a gun. WOOOO!

    ...

    I'll get my coat. :-P

    Don't worry, Arahoushi. The failure is his, not ours.

    perhaps the sarcasm didn't translate too well over teh interweb.

    Failure on your behalf would involve some kind of attempt at helping me.

    We as Teachers can only show the path . . .

    . . . the student must walk the way . . .

    What is the driving set of goals behind taking martial arts for you? Why the interest in a "traditional" art?
