Don't take us too seriously. Bullshido (minus Kungfools) has respect for Matt Thornton.
Even if he does get a little carried away with his proselytizing."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

What Matt Thorton thread would be complete without that word?

I am not a fan of his. I talked about this in another thread. When I lived in Portland, I saw Matt's students cheat at a MMA show and he did nothing. Randy Coutre and Dan Henderson were there and were acting as judges, when guys from their gym were fighting, and they let it slide. I trained at the "other" JKD place in town and one of the best guys there had left SBG because Mr. Thornton had almost crippled him with a thai kick to the knee.
Also, Matt Thornton dropped FMA from SBG's curriculum.

Speak for yourself, Phrost. Have you ever seen him drunk?
Personally, I think he's an arrogant prick who intentionally antagonizes people by wording things in the most obnoxious way he can think of soley because that's the way he gets his jollies.
.... oh wait, that's why I like him. Nevermind.
