    So, is the material on these DVD's newer than what's already out there? I have some old videos of Carl; the bareknuckle boxing, CQC vs. holds/grabs, and the "dirty judo" tape. Cestari and his uke were filmed in an old church basement wearing black BDUs and boots. These vids are from approximately '88-'89.

    Very good, but very basic material.

    Well cobra Kai(Karate Kid) the first claim"cut your training time in half" guess it depends how much you want to train(your answer) that to me doesent fullfill a claim."have your opponet smash his hands on your elbows, (your answer)Yeah, they probably would, if they hit my elbows. So that claim they get because by luck or pure skill you can get him to hit your elbows with his hands everytime, doesent once again fullfill a claim."the real secrets of bare knuckle boxing(your answer)I found that Cestari's DVD improved my bare knuckle boxing quite a bit. Im actually asking not as an insult but how did it improve your bare Knuckle game??How to effectively create opennings even on expert grapplers(your answer)Cestari's grappling DVD has a lot of the same stuff as Randy Couture's ground and pound DVD. Though I prefer Cestari's stuff for SD, as he acknowleges punching the guy in the nuts as a guard passing option!! I by the way agree with the punching the guy in the nuts for openning the gaurd, but what if your hands are tied up and you cant punch?? As far as the awareness stuff goes to say simple look over your shoulder well thats great but I think a little short of what I would expect from the DvDs as far as awareness is concerned.

    Man, that's a lot of getting your panties in a twist over something with a money back guarantee.

    Now, any responses to questions about the misleading advertising and fake back history provided by your head instructor?

    zadar95,
    Have you ever called either Cestari or Ross to express your dissapointment about their tapes and ask for your money back?

    If that's what you wanted, and you didn't have another agenda, don't you think that would be a much more productive way to settle this?

    As far as the lineage issue goes contact Bill Wolfe and ask him. www.defendo.com. As far as me expressing my opinion about the DvDs being less than satisfactory, what agenda would I be pushing??? How about the fact that I simply wanted to express my opinion!!!!

    Because the title of your thread is "Don't buy the CC training DVDs....etc."

    That's not expressing an opinion, that sounds more like driving away business from the people selling the DVDs. Not that I care either way you understand.

    If you'd wanted to just express your opinion, your thread title would've read something like "Dissapointed with Core Combat DVDs."

    Because, as we all know, someone who advertises a questionable lineage for marketing purposes will always be forthcoming when asked directly about it from someone who has no intention of buying anything from him. Odd, that he no longer claims to be the heir to the Fairbairn system. wonder why? Not effective enough for marketing purposes/ Or could there be another reason?

    I will repeat, Wolfe has a good system and teaches hard core, but it is not a Fairbairn derived system.

    PS. How come the picture for the Expanded Hand to Hand combat traing during the Camp X era is from Arwrology, a manual that has nothing to do with either Camp X or Fairbairn?
    Should we maybe take a look at the Instrucotr's notes for the Silent Killing Syllabus from 1943(after Fairbairn had left Camp X) to see the opinion on joint locks etc? I can dig it up if anyone is interested.

    Being completely at odds with all known historical documents usually is not a good sign for being "authentic".But we could ask Wolfe. Or you could start questioning whar your being taught.

    Dig it up, sure. Why not?
