    Lame.

    If I had a bunch of compliant partners and a camera man, I could look like a badass too.

    This stuff is all too clearly derived from your standard _ing _un spastic attack demo. This video screams, "Hey, look, I'm a badass! I can do chinups and fight people who don't fight back."

    I like how they tried to film this "in the street". Look, they're having a rehearsed fight in a bathroom, they must be legit.

    While this guy is obviously in great physical shape, the actual martial arts in the video look pretty "dead" to me.
    sudo make me a sandwich!

    I used to be impressed by such demos, but now only highlights and footage of fights impress me anymore. I think it's because even I can look badass if my partner lets me.

    That video only shows that he can script a fake fight. If you don't
    know why we think that video sucks please view this video:

    Yeah, I've seen this video before; it's really good.
    Sad part is that most schools still don't do this, whether they agree or not.

    Carruthers has been around for some time now and I've never seen anything from him that wasn't a demo. I think that is very telling in and of itself.

    A demo is just a demo. Don't read to much into it. For all we know, this guy could kill most members on the board. Or, he could get rocked by any amatuer boxer or BJJ blue belt. A simple demo doesn't give you enough info to congragulate or condemn this guy.

    That's fine and good, Tony. Now you just need a video of you showing that works on people who really want kill you.
