This testimonial link will say it all. I'm still laughing as I write this.

"Forget martial arts because that won't work in every scenario… look throw a turn kick at me!", (he did… and ended up on his back 6 feet away)" He has been my SCARS partner ever since!"
Wow, so cool. I would never of guessed I'd be put on my ass if I let the person I'm attacking choose the attack I make on him then feed him the shot to let him get his move off. What wonderous technique he must have to pre-empt the attack he told me to do.
"(Weapon attacks were not covered until a much higher belt grade in the martial arts classes I did before SCARS)"."
Ermm, ever heard of FMA or IMA?
"Even if you only bought one set of tapes, that would be enough to handle any confrontation you could possibly encounter"
Why buy more then?
"SCARS is not only different in my opinion it's 100% better than other martial arts. I studied Kempo, Kenpo, Dr. John La Tourrette (Speed Hitting), Paul Vunak, Frank Cucci, Karate Connection, Chris Clugston Combat JKD, Fight to Win with Jim West, kick boxing, boxing, some other local martial arts and so forth. None of which ever gave me much in the way of confidence."
"Just from watching the SCARS tapes I felt indestructible."
It's called mind washing. Or may be the bullshit on the tapes is just THAT believerble.
Honestly I don't know if Scars works or not. But it sits along side pymramid selling schemes as far as I'm concerned. Can you learn how to fight from a video with no one watching you and correcting your balance, mistakes etc. In my opinion you can't.
""Another thing that sets SCARS apart in a major way is that I don't have to learn different motor skills for weapons. If I'm proficient with my hands I'm proficient with anything in my hands which I can't overstate what of utter most importance this is!"
(LOL) no need to learn edge control, disarms, offensive blocking, weapon balance, focus, flow, striking points, etc. A knife is just like your hand you just bludgeon people to death with it
I purchased the SCARS video tapes to see first-hand if your claims were valid. One of my 22-year-old twin sons is a black belt in karate. He said, "Dad, the SCARS systems is outstanding! You can learn more on these video tapes than I ever learned in obtaining my black belt in karate."
Reminds me of the truman show. Nobody talks like that <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>

Ok I think we HAVE to chip in and get some of these tapes. I'm thinking everyone paypals a few bucks to one of our memebers (perhaps phrost since we can trust him) and once the tapes (perhaps DVD's) are ordered they get ripped and FTP'd out to everyone. Or we could order the videos and return them (with the iroclad 90 day guarantee!!!!!!!!) after making copies and using everyone cash they chipped in to make the copy and ship it to them. **
I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to see some SCARS ****.

Ballonknot: I can believe it. I avoid his topics pretty much. because what he does can be done with any group of people. Just choose a type, nationality or colour then search the news to make them look a certain way.
"All Women are stupid because these women have done this"
Take a stupid statement then look for news articles to enforce the statement. For someone who claims to practice a "combat system" based on logic.
His methods are far from logical.
God, I sound like a vulcan <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

I concur. By the way, I just posted another SCARS link that really takes the cake.

You know as much as I am curious to see SCARS, I refuse to give this man any of my money. I am still saving up for one a couple of Phrost's shirts from this site. If we are going to support someone let's start with one of our own. :)

You're right Jeremy, I would never give SCARS a penny of my money. A bullshido t-shirt sounds good though!

Yeah, and I bet it's coincidence that the letters for the system make such a cool sounding acronymn. SCARS! Arrrghhh! I'm a tough guy!
