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.

Rudy as far as I can tell. its because they are St33t f1ght3rs
If AnnaT screams "Tiger Uppercut" when she KO's OMar, she will officaly be my favorite human being.

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.

Sounds about fair.

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.Originally Posted by Sifu Rudy Abel
