    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I call bs: Don Isaak's battlefield krotty

    I call bullshit but I can't be arsed to investigate it, so here it is in YMAS for comedy value.

    I searched the site for "Don Isaak" and got no good results which astonishes me so my apologies if this LARPIng is old news.

    Promotional video:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFisBVO1_AQ&NR=1
    I have only watched with the sound off so I have no idea what he says but I'd bet my daughter it's bullshit. The demo at the end is sooo lame, the attacker litterally punches to miss by a mile.

    I guess from his hairstyle there's Kempo involved somewhere.


    But what I really want to call bullshit on is the title he's given it - "Ancient Okinawan Battlefield Karate"

    1. Ancient. Karate isn't ancient
    2. Okinawan. Hmmm, or made up by some yank rediscovering some kata maybe - just guessing
    3. Battlefield. Since when did any rational person use karate in a military battle????
    4. Karate. Probably sucks then.



    I rest my case. Don Isaaks is bullshido.

    Bloody hell, I just watched it with the sound on and he actually says "You can work 8 attackers".

    Here's the punch that misses by a mile even before he starts his counter:


    From the TotalvidInc website (they sell his vids)
    Sensei Don Isaak has over 30 years of experience and is currently the Chief Instructor and owner of Budokan International in Atlanta, Ga. Nationally ranked in forms, fighting and weapons (NASKA).
    Traced this chap's dojo to:
    Budokan International
    432 H Canton Hwy.
    Cumming, GA 30040
    Don Isaak
    800-297-9190
    678-947-3656

    Also has used name "Gakusha Kobudo Budokan International"

    He did have a website at www.DIBudokan.com but it's gone now.

    He lists emails as disaak@adelphia.net and budokan@adelphia.net

    Therefore, the centre of this bullshidoism is somewhere here:

    I'm confused because I thought he operated out of Ancient Okinawa.

    Is the OP suggesting that Karate isn't from Okinawa? or am i misreading??

    Otherwise you are quite right on calling bs on the other stuff.

    "I guess from his hairstyle there's Kempo involved somewhere."

    So there is truth to that! I thought I was the only one who noticed that. Why does it happen?

    Blimey, all those years of karate and I never realised that :pottytrai

    But seriously, anyone else notice how it's become a bit of a gimick for karate dudes who are setting up their own institutions or selling their own twist on karate to play down their Japanese/Western lineage and reference the Okinawan bit - like it makes them more authentic, hardcore, niche or something. Irony is they are by definition less authentic, they just think that their interpretation of some katra or tradition is somehow more valid and closer to the REAL karate blah blah. Common theme?

    I found his current website at http://www.aafamilykarate.com/

    Another email address aafk@comcast.net

    Silly Acronym for Self-Defence = E.S.C.A.P.E = Yes
    Pressure points = Yes
    Self-defence wrist locks = Yes

    = silly


    Looks like the centre of this bullshido may have relocated to

    Ancient Arts Family Karate
    3131 Smokey Point Drive, Arlington WA 98223


    Maybe he should look the word "Ancient" up in the dictionary

    This guy doesnt even have a good basic skillset.
    If it's true he has more then 30 years of experience it makes me wonder what the hell he's been doing with that time.
    I left him a nice comment on youtube.

    What this thread needs is for Do Isaak or his followers to come explain what's so ancient and battleproven about what he's peddling.
