I would discount the value of RBSD systems out of hand. Most people are not going to be attacked by trained fighters. Against your most likely assailant, these techniques might work. At any rate most RBSD systems fail to address 2 things which I think are the weak points of such a system.
1 - Can you teach someone aggression?
2 - Can you teach someone how to act in a hyper-violent manner?
Though related these are actually two different things. And if you can teach these two things...
3 - Can you teach someone who to use these crippling techniques in a controled manner?
Not every confrontation is life or death. In reality most confrontations are so far from that that if they get to that point there is usually a gun of knife involved, likely one that you don't know about.There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

Eye gouging, groin shots, throat shots and other dirty tactics are perfectly solid techniques. You just shouldn't base your entire faith on such techniques.

Troy is this you?:
October 8, 1999, Michigan, Arizona: Richard Van Hazel and Troy Coe, both from Phoenix, are arrested in Rochester Hills, Michigan, and charged in the attempted kidnapping and murder of an accountant.
Van Hazel, a white supremacist with links to a wide number of extremist groups, and convicted in 1987 of mailing death threats to IRS agents and an African-American judge, and Coe impersonated U.S. marshals in order to kidnap an accountant who gave testimony in an Arizona case involving a chiropractor charged with income tax evasion. Authorities believe the two planned to kill the accountant.

Southwest BUR-PHX is $69 one way with enough planning. This is ridiculously cheap.

A. You don't believe you're full of ****.
B. You've contradicted yourself in your own posts.
C. I offer to fly out to give you a neutral examination of your school and you think I'm responsible to disprove you and something about medical.
1. You'd have to pay for medical if you were doing something that is considered liable like jump me as I walked into your school or hit me with a bat while I was sitting there talking to you.
2. That was not a challenge that was an offer to get you off the hook and you jumped down one of the posters that was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt.
Please vote what you think of this school. Bullshit school, kinda bullshit school, not a bullshit school. No explanation needed.

I have to vote kinda bullshit, simply because troy is so stubborn about the ferocious 5. if he would include a sprawl, wizzer, shrimp, and upa as sort of counter grappling it would be a perfectly valid self defense style.
troy, if ur still reading, do this plz, and let omega come down and check it out, he wasn't challenging, just offering to be a neutral third party with a great deal of experience

For an untrained person, learning basic self-defense to be used against another untrained person for the express purposes of gaining a few moments of upper-hand to escape or mount a continued offense.....they are just fine.
The idea of this being the "Universal Spackle For Fighting" is where I respectfully disagree with Mr. Coe
