    doing a flashy demo to entertain a crowd for a half time show type of thing isn't exactly indicative of bullshido.

    Yeah, but it can also be seen as a begining down a slippery slope. Besides, with all the things on other arts and people looking for McDojo's in BJJ and the like this MT demo seemed to go hand in hand.

    Besides, here's another question. Would you train in a gym that used this to advertise? Or moreso would you participate in something like this claiming this was t3h r34l muay thai?

    If Manu Ntoh (my current thaiboxing coach) did a demo like this, I'd still join his school because he's a badass. I would not join his school based on it, nor would I NOT join his school based on it. It's just a silly demo. I don't really know anything about this Master Sken dude, so he may or may not be full of crap, but I wouldn't count him out just because of this dumb video.

    No, I would not participate in a thing where I lunged at my coach with a knife so he could spinning crescent kick me to entertain a crowd, because it looks dumb in my opinion. I would, however, participate in a flashy exhibition where myself and another fighter pretend to KO eachother repeatedly with jumping spinning hook kicks and other such nonsense.

    Well, looks like all I can do now is see if there's anything more on this Master Sken guy I guess. I'm still suspicious, especially after watching a couple of techniques from his DVD. I am not a Muay Thai guy though, I just know what my dad's told me and what matches I've watched on TV and youtube.

    He does smell fishy but I'll see what I can find and leave it to the people who do MT here to decide.

    There was a thai boxer a couple years ago that fought off 4-5 knife weilding attackers that tried to rob his grandmothers house.

    I don't think that clip is anyone's definition of RBSD ...

    It's just a showbiz demo, a bit of flashy fun. 100 years ago, Muay Thai fighters were probably doing the same sort of show to entertain their fellow villagers at harvest festivals.

    Well there are to this day ropefist matches that I'd consider more or less the same thing that I imagine have been around for quite a while.

    Do you mean they're performed as choreographed displays?

    I believe they're more like exhibitions where they display flashy techniques rather than fully choreographed. Kinda like pro wrestling.

    like the footage in the ring in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6P-K_QNgPM
