it sounds like you actually have a decent self defense system that you teach. personally I dont like the idea of leading with your right but for people who want to learn to fight quickly its not necessarily bad. I also think that discouraging kicks early in training is good, but not teaching them when low kicks and the occasional floating rib kick are fight enders seems limiting. Like I said though, a good limited self defense system.
I do have an issue with your thought that the "ferocious five" is the be all end all to grappling defense. I used to train with a shotokan friend and a wing chun friend, both of whom were convinced that throwing knees as I shot in, raking at my eyes, or nailing me in the balls would stop me. Well they did hit me with a knee once or twice, but if you expect it you can just shoot an outside single and avoid it, and most knees still missed or were stuffed when i shot a double. In the clinch or on the ground, eye gouging and raking were generally avoided by just constant head moving/shaking, which didnt really impede what i was doing. and ball shots do in fact require leverage, otherwise you can just be shaken off. I was able to just slightly adjust my position and my nuts were safe. Im not a great grappler, but i was able to mostly negate these attacks, and eventually submit them. A sprawl, an upa, and a shrimp are much better submission/grappling defenses, and almost as easy. you seem like a smart guy, add one or two more things to your style, and all of a sudden it becomes much more complete.

I have broken my hand in class while rolling and I still took mount before I decided to stop. I have broken my hand 3 times in the last 1.5 years. The last time I was rolling in a splint two weeks after. If I want to hurt you I am going to. Anyone who has been grappling for a while knows that noobs constantly grab fingers and necks and everything else. One of the first things you learn is hot to keep the other guys hands off of you.There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

If the biting they're talking about isn't similar to Vunak's BJJ/Kino mutai hybrid, it's likely bullshit.

This is why I believe Goldust's version more and more.
He calls Goldust a liar but, his stories get bigger and bigger and bigger.
We need to verify if this is honestly the owner.

I mean, what are you asking, go back in time and relive the Gracie challenge matches in 2008? Why? I mean sheesh here's a 2006 example - just go to YouTube and type in "Gracie Challenge"
YouTube - rorion gracie vs taekwondo black belt challenge
Oh, I know - they didn't have the special "5 dragons defense" or whatever. Right. Unless that is 5 bullets in a revolver then you are delusional.
Just give up the tough guy act and go sneak in to Megaton's place on the sly to take some ground lessons. Go see Houssan - he'll show you about gouges and rips.

When you get jumped outside a biker bar you don't worry about police reports you fucking moron you get the hell out of there. Escape is a big part of Self Defense ya know. I guess you would have stomped him to death. You ask a question like that and then respond in that way? I don't need to prove anything to you. You guys are the ones with the opinions I don't care whether you believe me or not. Cage fighting (UFC) is nothing but human cock fighting. It proves nothing but barbarism. Oh and nice of you to mention that you were glad that my student didn't die. Real honorable of you. If any of you want to test what I said here you are more than welcome to come and see. Man up. Until you do that then you STFU!
You’re asking for proof and no one will come in and see. I have open door. No matter what you say or think no one’s ego will face the possibility that I may not be wrong. Hide behind you screens and key boards and say what you want. You guys are nothing but mouth pieces I am 43 years old and I have now verified the decline of the Martial Arts into nothing but opinionated thugs with no backbone.
Now I will STFU!
