    Regardless of how you may feel about his kungfu, the fact remains that he never trolled here, that he took a lot of **** from many different quarters with remarkable equanimity, and seemed like a pretty good joe.
    If that is the case, then I am almost sad that this is going on, since from what I've seen of his videos suggests that he will most likely lose. My sadness is mitigated by the stupid stipulation that they fight on concrete, which almost guarantees that someone is going to end up hurt pretty badly. I've been KOed on concrete and my head bouncing off the concrete probably contributed more to my 45 minute nap time and severe concussion (nauseous for three days with a splitting head ache) than the kick to the head that KOed me - and I was wearing headgear at the time.

    They will fight on CONCRETE?

    Who was the genius who stipulated that condition?
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.

    Whoever came up with the stupid idea of fighting NHB on concrete deserves to have their skull cracked open, especially if that person isn't actually doing any fighting.

    Why do you think his sifu tricked him?

    Granted I didn't really see much of value in the training methods utilized in the videos, but I've learnt from experience not to judge too quickly. We may only be seeing part of the training picture. Or I may be wrong.

    Well, the chinese teachers i trained with/learned from tend to actually know not so much about western training or contactsports and tend to overrate their own.
    Dont get me wrong, ive seen really good ones, but te majority ive met are so-so, and ive known and still know people who train(ed) with chinese masters and i also know from secondhand there's a lot bs going around.

    I think it was clear to see in that interview that Omar really wanted to belong and clearly enjoys this traditional master-student relationship.
    My master is important, therefor i as his student, am too.

    The techniques, stances movements/footwork werent all that, i know european traditional chinese kung fu sifu's who could have taught him that aswell.
    But hey, they;re white so it isnt that exotic huh?

    To me everything he did in those videos seemed kind of clumsy. More so if he's really trained dedicatedly for years with a good sifu. But then again, I'm definitely no expert.

    I was impressed, very greatly.

    By his command of the Chinese language.

    Not by his Gong Fu.
