Do you mean, "Why do TMA stage point fighting tournaments in hotel lobbies and then post them on Youtube?" I'm also intrested in that.
So this is point-fighting then?

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
School promotion, plain and simple.

Well I dont know about all his belts because I trained there when I was 16 years old I am now 36. I dont even live in Tucson any more I live in washington state now. What I do remember is back then he had a 3rd degree blackbelt in kaj. that I know of but that was a long time ago. We trained at flowing wells high school andthere were two other blackbelts there went on to teach also there names were Don washington and John trueman both were 1st degree black belts back then. Last december with the help of axelton I was able to look him up while visiting my mom in tucson. I didnt train while I was there but we sat and told lies for about an hour. he know has a small gym on the north side of tucson and teaches under "american karate" he said to avoid confusion! I didnt question it. what we did back then wasn't exactly the same as speakmans 5.0 but he used to do things like invite the high school wrestlers to train with us and he was heavily involved with kickboxing also. he trained kickboxers after our classes back then.in fact I helped himwork at a couple of events at the plaza international hotel.(nothing exciting just setting up chairs and **** like that) but I got to watch the event for free and when your 17 thats pretty cool.While I was visiting him I was looking around his dojo and he had pictures of him in hawii recieving a black belt of sort but that's about all I can vouche for personally. hope that helps. I will say one thing all three of the blackbelts that I mentioned were great people, and I will probably always hold them in high regaurds.

You're probably right, but I was'nt alive in 1947! And the kaj. that I practiced did'nt have the ground work that 5.0 has. It may now, but it didnt then. mostly just throws and joint locks.

Many of the 'old skool' kajukenbo schools start with jjj, judo & kenpo. Many of their 'converts' came from kenpo & karate. The main area I think kajukenbo excels in are the transitions between ranges. But, those are built into the curriclulum, and it all depends on how the individual school trains.
I wasn't refering to the Kenpo videos posted, I was referring to the fact, that if you search around on Youtube, you can find a ton of "Karate vs TKD" and "Kenpo vs TKD" point fighting videos taking place in what seems to be hotel lobbies.
