    I really try to stay clear of the politics of MAs but I have to say: I've heard massive ammounts of **** about this guy (Guy) from some of the senior ARMA guys. Also, what I've seen of his work looks like he's endorsing some less than functional interpretations of the guards.

    I'm looking forward to Human Weapon: Turkish Oil Wrestling. See what Bill Duff thinks of this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXkq8PqDA0c

    It would be worth listening to what some senior guys outside of ARMA have to say about Windsor's work -

    Craig's got a good point. I hear lots of things about some ARMA guys too, but I try to ignore that sort of thing and focus on someone's interpretations and teaching ability. I've trained with Guy several times now and while I don't agree with all of his interpretations (specifically on his Capo Ferro book) I'm still impressed by his work.

    WMA politics are a waste of my time.
