    Oh, nice find. You know sometimes when I am in class working out and I start to get tired, I worry that I'm not keeping my elbows in or that my pnches/kicks are getting sloppy and all that other technique stuff. Then I watch this and I feel a lot better! Where to even being with these guys? Everyone has thier hands low as heck and the guy who throws that front kick just drops his arms each time. I wonder how much people pay to work out there?

    My favorite was the waiste level hook kick at about :35 where he tries to compensate for his inability to regain his balance right away by throwing out what I assume is his most badass "come get some" look.

    Ralph Ralph Ralph.

    There are two things I like about him:
    1) He wants his guys to sparr and fight with other schools
    2) He piss most buj guys off to no end.

    Ralph may believe in Sparring and good training methods but he dissed everone in the Bujinkan from Soke on Down. He should of left before he was kicked out. If you don't respect the head and top dogs in any organization, YOU SHOULD LEAVE.

    And to be honest... he probably could beat the crap out of 99% of the posters on this forum to boot. He is the exception to the rule about obese people. He is everything he shouldn't be: fast, strong, agile, etc...

    He is also a raving lunatic, but that is an entirely different story.

    Aww, no need to call him a hick just 'cuz he's from North Texas.

    Anyway, I do have to give Ralph and his school credit since they do spar (medium-to-hard contact if I understand correctly) and they do have inter-school challenge matches. Also, any ninja that trains in the use of firearms is one step higher on the LARP ladder, in my book.

    Doesn't Ralph also teach grappling at his school? I think I recall seeing a video of him giving grappling instruction (in a grassy field and wearing tabi no less). My general opinion from watching his videos is that his school is basically low-rent MMA mixed with ninja LARPing and guns. Ralph's striking instruction is fairly "meh," but at least his students train with some modicum of aliveness.

    So lying down and shooting a pistol is MA now...

    On an unrelated note I'm currently pioneering a new secret MA using satelite-guided missile technology. You can use it to kill enemies from unheard of distances, but it is banned from mma for being too t3h d34dly.

    Acutally it is. I've always found it funny pple would thing wielding some ancient weapon as a MA but not consider that learning to use and employ a modern one is a MA too.

    On that note I want a bumper sticker that says "My DOJO is also the Firing Range!" or something to that effect.
