    Ron Balicki knows his ****. The Fighting Sarong DVD is kind of goofy, but I like his demeanor and how he teaches. Also, he's married to Dan Inostanto's daughter, who, as someone mentioned, is hot (KorneliusPraxx could have her pic as an avatar).

    Kagan, I guess I don't know the differenence between WC and JKD, I was under the impression the Bruce Lee created JKD and later renounced/abandoned Wing Chun. So I was confused to see that a JKD Video was showing WC techinques on the wooden dummy. That discrepancy was not my point, however, nor was my point "wing chun sucks." That horse is a dead pulp on here.
    I saw a video which implied that wing chun techniques win ring fights so I disagreed. My youtube comment is totally not the point of the thread, it's just context, the point of the post is the last sentence, "Does anything know anything about the guy?" You must have missed it. I made a comment on youtube about a video and the author emails me angrily, so I was hoping for some background on him. I'm not assuming anthing.
    Praxx, this is doing homework. I know his wife is Diana Inosanto, and all the other stuff on wikipedia. I'm looking for more.

    These are what I was looking for:

    His book is one of the few JKD books to cover not just barehanded striking and grappling, but weapons too. He has several pages dedicated to the stick and knife. He did a sequence that I think is the best advice I have ever seen in a knife fighting instructional. He pulls a knife on his unarmed student, and instead of the guy defending like in the previous examples, he just runs away.

Also, the way he teaches the shoot is a little goofy.
    Also, he gives seminars. Has anyone been to one?

    Okay I'm trying to understand you.


    Please tell me you are 15?

    See, if you type a post full of venom and insults how can that be ignored? Honestly, I'm the one that asked for this to be moved from MABS.

    Wing Chun is crappy self defense.
    What self respecting person, right or wrong, isn't going to defend their video/art after that comment?

    Really? Your words:

    "WC is crappy self defense."

    "JKD video looks like wing chun, and looks like BS."

    "But his video looks like weapons-grade bolonga-um. "

    And to top it all off, you don't even remember exactly what you said to him. In other words, you started a dumb MABS thread.

    4 of 'em (Our school is affiliated with MARS. The Ron Balicki system, not the planet. Keep your moons of Jupiter-jokes to yourself). What do you want to know?

    What'd you think of them? Were they with weapons or unarmed? Did he show you anything like in the video trailer (especially the antigrappling)?

    I liked most of it. His teachings depend on what's requested and he'll stick to one style for a "course" (so if you want to do a shooto seminar but not Kali, that's perfectly feasible).
    I've done both armed and unarmed courses with him. No WC though.
    His shooto, MT and JKD courses all are one hell of a workout with Shooto and MT also including sparring. Ron is pretty good at assessing the skills of the attendees and tailoring his material to the average skill level.
    Kali and silat tend to get a bit on the fancy side for my taste though, even if in sparring it's obvious that he knows his **** (but there he also sticks to the basics). I still won't be skipping his kali courses, though. Maybe we should ask for a lameco session next year.
    His usual assistant (Joey) looks entirely too much like a young Dave Grohl.
    Why did you edit out the 'what's Ron like?' question?

    Edit: the rambling is to be blamed on sleep deprivation. Me go beddy-bed now.
