    Actually, being suckered before it isn't that hard to believe. If any good has come out of the BJJ/MMA surge people are a little better informed.

    My first MA encounter was a 300+lb Instructor who never got up from behind the desk until, he would ref sparring.

    When you don't know any better it is easy to fall for some cool looking techniques in the air.

    He's lucky no one was throwing hard. One good leg kick and would probably die.
    LOL!
    If you leg kicked him, I'm sure gravy would spill out!

    Olorin, thank you for posting this. It seems that all that was written about
    his abilities (or lack thereof....unless we're talking about competative
    eating/systema) were true.

    Now now guys, let's keep this civil.

    How about some well reasoned constructive criticism of his technique?

    Okay, the third video was pretty funny.

    I've seen kids with 2 years of TKD with better technique.

    I still want to know why they're slapping?

    I guess a lot of it is suspension of disbelief; it's a lot easier to believe in something that you want to believe in. However, I would think that at some point one would want to see some concrete evidence that the ideas being presented worked. I've never seen any of my coaches spar but I don't doubt them because I can see how good the other people they train are. I know Coda Scott has been discredited but I'm still shocked at how bad he looked in those vids. I'd have thought that he would have had at least some actual ability.

    I mean Coda was throwing those low, defensive, knee level, reactionary, kicks you see from noobs in trouble.
    Well there is one for you.

    He turns his back and fires off blind kicks.
    He needs more techniques. I mean he does lunge punches, side thrust, and back kicks. Many of these aren't aimed in any way.

    He leaves his guard to far down.

    He also does a lot of retaliatory striking. By that I mean someone hits him with a couple of good shots. When said person disengages he throws a hard not targeted technique almost a cheap shot IMO.

    Better?

    In all honesty if it wasn't for UFC's and bullshido I might still be deluded. Seriously, when the delusion gets its roots in they are hard to shake.
