    That's great.

    This is a rough play ground.

    My Email is <your AOL e-mail address>
    I'm going to do you a favor and tell you to edit your e-mail address out of that post now. Get a free, low maintenance, quick-and-dirty e-mail address from yahoo or hotmail for posting to an open forum; unless you want your AOL inbox bombed by spam and sociopaths.

    Goody.

    Sorry, but "too deadly" is a cliched and broken excuse for failure in MMA- we have absolutly no patience for people who say "our moves are tood deadly". Want to know why? Because your moves aren't too deadly; go to an MMA or BJJ gym and do a little free fighting, try it out. You will not kill anyone, you will not sucessfully defend yourself.

    I have had people try to bite, eye gouge, groin grab, and fish hook me while rolling- people otherwise "experienced in martial arts" who thought these dirty techniques would save them when confronted by the grappling they didn't figure they needed to learn. Without fail these techniques 1. make me very angry 2. provide me with an opening to apply an actually meaningful technique 3. end in defeat for the person who thought it would turn the tide.

    Furthermore, if you could please explain this "martial ettiquete" I'd appreciate it. Given the context it was brought up and discussed, it smells an aweful lot like "don't question master, don't ask about other styles" and it's that sort of backwards thought process that stunts the progress of a student.

    I don't honestly expect you to respond to this, but it would be nice. At the very least take my advice on the e-mail thing, it's for your own good.

    To be honest, I haven't written any magazine articles for at least 2-3 years. The last year I have been busy writing a Kajukenbo book, which I hope to have finished in the next few weeks.
    As to writing about kenpo/kempo history, I could not in good conscience write a definative article. Kenpo (Hawaiian variants) history prior to James Mitose's time in Hawaii is very speculative.
    There are differant theories of Mitose's history, but absolutely no real evidence to prove the truth of any of the theories beyond a reasonable doubt.
    Some people believe a tale of generations of Japanese monks and samurai's.
    Some people believe Mitose trained with Choki Motobu in Japan.
    Some people believe in a more recent connection to Okinawan kempo arts practiced in the Hawaii of the 30's.
    And some people believe he just learned it from watching jujitsu classes and reading karate books.
    I sent you a pm with my off site contact information, if you are willing to talk by phone I think we could sort this out faster.

    Dai Tenshi, very well said on the "too deadly" stuff. I was a victim of that kind of flawed thinking for quite quite some time, and I did just what you said and got my rear kicked by some real fighters. That kind of kick in the ass (pun intended) really got me to change my perspective and I hope anyone else reading this thread does so too. Quite a learning experience.
