    This reminds me of a game called Shenmue. The character in the game uses Judo/Jiujitsu, Aikido, Karate, and Bajiquan. The problem with that is Yu Suzuki made the game so great that everyone, experienced in these arts or not wants to try the moves Ryo does in the game.

    I still want to know how Ryo does that elbow thrust from Bajiquan.

    Ask the programmer, I'm sure he could tell you how Ryo did it.

    So they're takedowns as opposed to disarms then?
    2 questions then:
    1. Do you think the emergency release feature some 3-point slings have actually would make a difference (like is it better to let your enemy get your rifle but kinda on your terms, and would you have time to use it)?
    2. How common is sling use?

    Just wondering so I can LARP better.

    However, and I understand it's a little paranoid, but I've always had it in the back of my mind that if I was ever caught in a situation where there was a weapon my only decent-percentage plan is to hope my date takes a knife wound more gracefully than I do. So, I'd at least be decently interested in this kind of training, if not now, then some time in the future when I'm putting in enough hours that I can waste a few on novelty.

    Not being a military man, myself, I was wondering if you had any sugguestions for a civilian to get something similar. Or should I just get better versed in Judo, as you mentioned?
    Get better versed at Judo.


    Mori has a civilian and a LEO/Military program. The civilian one is more Judo based than the other. For the LEO/Military he suggest being more versed in a skill set before trying his "CQC" stuff.

    I've been knocked around a lot by the joes. Last week I was hiding an RPG and AK-47 in my hutch but they got the job on me so I tried to cut and run to another building. I tossed one out the way broke out the door and thought I was home free. Then I got broadsided as I rounded the corner. I swept him to get up and before I got run 5 of them jumped on me and I got hogtied. Today I think I will just be the DVD salesman.

    They are disarms but since you can't get the weapon away you can use it for a takedown.

    1)Probably not. Plus it wouldn't be a good idea to give up your weapon. Retain it and let your buddies take him out.

    2) Very common. But in tradoc we have a mix of the tactical 3 point and the traditional sling.

    Since I started talking about Bajiquan does anyone know if the author of Kenji had any experience in Hakkyouken?
