Southard Combat Systems
Before I start I want to make it clear that I have no first hand Knowledge of Mr. Southard teach or martial arts ablities.
At christmas I returned to North Carolina to see my family and my cousin told me about a local instructor Tony Southard. That he was a world renound MA instructor and body guard. We I returned home I did a little checking and there seems to be alot of Bull.
1. there is the just plain silly list of ranks. Some which do not exsist to my knowledge (my favorite is the PhD. And the rest would take too long to get.
2. Second his history is funny. He says he was "Asked" to fight in the olympics in TKD, Also
he was suppose to fight for the PKA world championship but had to drop out due to a shoulder injury. What he never got another chance ?
3. His list of Halls of Fame is funny. A bunch of jokes.
4. Most importantly is the clips. He is a terrible striker. I think they speak for themselves.
Any way I just wanted to see what everyone though. I am going to do some more looking into this in the future.
Oh my word!!!
I'm not quite sure how to express how much the striking sucked.
Yet another great American 10th degree
Why does the guy with the pad keep falling over. I like the kick that is used in case you are attacked by a cigarette.
Maybe I'm the idiot here, but I've never heard of a Phd. in self-defense. My university has no such thing. The two other things I take issue with are the bottle break (is that even possible the way he did it?) and the bat break. I've seen people break bats and it always looked like they had to kick it a helluva lot harder that that. I wonder if that bat had been weakened.

Now that you say that I certainly do. Damnit. I stand corrected. What about the bottle though? You got any thoughts on that?

1st Dan in S.T.E.A.L.T.H. Ninjutsu? What? You drop ninjas from a stealth plane over enemy lines? Are they rocket propelled ninjas? For crying out loud...what bullshido!
Not sure if that was good ol' sarcasm but in case it wasn't and in case someone else is curious here it goes.

4) Because you are a master of many arts (or one, or none, doesn't matter as long as you have the cash), you can buy a PhD in MA
5) Masterbate furiously
Not in that order but it gives you an idea of how it works.
Well then, I'm at 20% of earning my own PhD.
