    If shot at with full-draw, he would be skewered every time.

    They were lame.. to clarify I was talking about the two guys doing sword kumite- different school I think but memory isn't what it was. Some BS about non-telegraphing feet but seemed like the sword skill was good. Or am I wrong?

    Guys doing sword kumite ... I don't remember anything but some two-man preset kata-type stuff. In general, nobody was actually trying to hit each other.
    A bit like Hatsumi's students pretending to try to chop him on the top of the head. He sidesteps slightly and they miss. Well, you can't do that really, a swordsman unconciously alters the swing when the target moves, chopping right into someone who just sidesteps. Of course the students bashed Crudelli right on the bonce ... cruel.

    The kiai guys, oh-my-god, getting the students to run across the garden at them, then shouting. The students collapse in a heap. Very impressive, but total master-student psychology, or even outright lying.

    The kiai guy with the big bell, more theatre. Shouting at the right pitch, or even just loud enough will make that bell 'ring'. What he did at the same time was stamp on the floor. Easy. Worthless trick but good for fun.

    Yeah- like ippon kumite in krotty. Only fun to watch because of fast shiny swords, and Crudelli breathless amazement- which I couldn't tell was genuine or just pure brummy piss-artistry. Either way - funny.

    I don't anyone of sound mind would disagree with this. I certainly didn't.

    I just LMAO at Crudelli pretending to be impressed and the idea that he pitched TMA magic skills to BBC producers and convinced them to give him money to make a show. He gets points for being so brazen if nothing else. Taiwan police training? BS? Sparring with guy in Thailand? PT Kali? MBAKA had tiniest nuggets of cool under heaps and heaps of ****- but the heaps of **** were comedy to me. I mean really- who could take the majority of it seriously?

    Has anyone noticed on the photos section of Crudelli's page, on the 'early photos' he has one eyebrow?
    But on the recent photos he has two eyebrows.
    He must have been plucking his eyebrows.

    One eyebrow (he's on the bottom right):

    They look kind of retarded. Maybe they take all of the 'special' kids in China to go and train at shaolin temples.
