    I agree with this up until it's delusional. Yellow Bamboo, for example. They stood by what they did...until an MMA'er destroyed their 'champion' on a beach in less than five seconds.:qright3:

    The guy never even threw a punch. He honestly thought if he channelled enough chi, his opponent would bounce right off of him.

    If they are photoshopping chi emanating from a palm, clearly there is evidence of delusion here. Or fraud. Either is bad.

    If they have faith in their product, then there should be no problems, right? Right?
    I think you may have to go incognito, Kai... they're expecting a 7 ft tall dood?
    Bend down a little.
    That should fox them. Camamoflage FTW.

    Oh, I voted for peace and love.

    Well, I think that, should he accept me into his school for a review, I should be courteous and participate in randori with him, seeing as he has a black belt in Judo, and he looks to be near my weight class.

    Also, any demonstrations by him or his students would be greatly helpful in forming an accurate opinion about his school.

    I tried to give them a call before the Ki Ken Do class, but alas, there was no answer. I'll try again tomorrow.

    I found these while browsing the "Dragon Dojo Martial Arts" site:



    Uke Ki Shin Ryu has something for everyone.
    Well, the "Dragon Dojo Martial Arts" school seems to be the best one out of the others. According to their site, they teach:

    Grappling – like that of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)
    Sparring & Striking – like that of Mutai kickboxing
    Combat
    Weapons
    Traditional Martial Arts
    Mental Strategy
    Natural Health
    XMA (Extreme Martial Arts) – martial arts with a gymnastics twist
    But wait, there's more! They also teach:

    Ninjutsu- The Art of Winning / The Art of Stealth
    Shaolin Kung Fu- (Shaolin) - Young Forest (Kung Fu) - Skill Learned Over Time
    Karate Do- The Way of the Open Hand
    Wado Ryu- The Way of Peace and Harmony
    Self-Defense and Full Contact to Light Contact Sparring
    Judo- The Way of Gentleness
    Tae Kwon Do- The Way of Hand and Foot
    Ki Ken Do - The Way of the Spirit Sword
    Chi Focus- The Healing Art
    Chi Combat- Striking with Internal Energy
    Iron Body- Training the Body to Receive and Deliver Extreme Blows
    Weapons Training
    Not only do you learn multiple arts, but you can also obtain more than one black belt:

    Earn your Black Belt in Ukejutsu – Martial Arts Studies Program - Study the root base of all martial arts in this comprehensive martial art studies program.

    Earn your Certificate in Waiest Mental Fitness Training’s Chi Focus – Discover new and ancient forms of meditation, philosophical, natural health, and fitness guidance.

    Earn your Black Belt in Ki Ken Do – Five Elemental Strategy Study Program - The trainee will learn the quick draw techniques of the Samurai warrior and the stealth and cutting techniques of Ninjutsu. You will study the strategy base of the Samurai’s Bushido and Ninjutsu’s Ninpo traditions.
    "Dragon Dojo Martial Arts" for the win my friend, for the win.

    I have made contact with Dragon Dojo, and things are moving forward, but at the request of the owner, I won't discuss it just yet.

    Let's try to be civil, so we don't scare anybody off, mmmkay?

    I'll be visiting the school to "play" with them, and if that goes well, he may allow a review, but he's very tentative at this point, due to his view that forms are very "negative."

    I'm always perfectly civil, tbh I think I'm gonna end up being a big fan of DDMA! Check out this quote from their front page:

    Sounds like good value to me. Why pay for black belts in 5 different arts when you can get one super-blackbelt at DDMA? Imagine how crap you would feel if you turned up there with your judo blackbelt... you find the blackbelts there are as good as you but they also have BB level skill in all those other brilliant arts as well!
    Straight punches make you go blind. More damage is done to a criminals nervous system when they are struck. Strikes that make you stronger. All this and more systema douchebaggery:
