What do you guys think? To me this looks like HKD with a bit more matwork involved. I don't have enough bullshido chi-mojo to actually call bullshit, but maybe someone else can be less of a wuss.
The falls are EXACTLY as how we used to train when I was in middle school back in Korea.
PS: Can someone edit the embed tag that got all jacked up?

It looks like re-packaged JJJ with a bit of wrestling mixed in, to me. Of course, at least there's Live Rolling...
From the videos, the techniques don't look bad. But trying to pass this off as "ancient African martial arts" when it's clearly Judo/Jujutsu is a bit irresponsible. One could do far worse with a McDojo, I suspect...
I am a Ninja bitches!! Deal with it

Also the side breakfall with the arm behind the back is new to me.
I am not sure what the point is, unless it's some weird escape from a standing hammer lock.
It could be a lot worse though
Just watched some of their grappling vids, seems like OK JJJ

Was that a guillotine submission from the bottom of a mount at 5:10 in the first video?!?!?! And then the master congratulates them???

I didn't see one redeeming quality. I saw a lot of **** though. The breakfalls and sprawls were atrocious. The sprawls only half-way worked because the shots seemed to be 'run forward with your back horizontal'. The rest of the techniques were equally craptastic. The live grappling looked like they were all taking their first lesson, no base, no balance, no defense. Really, I dont see where "the techniques don't look bad".

The break falls and sprawls were stupid. arm behind the back? stupid.

The execution is terrible, to be sure. But the techniques, themselves, look to be lifted straight from Judo and Jujutsu. It's not like the usual bullshit throws and locks seen in a plethora of terrible crappling schools. No stand-there-like-a-tool-while-I-spend-five-minutes-twisting-your-arm-for-a-throw kinds of things.

I would have liked the video much better with the "Beat Street" soundtrack. But I did enjoy the sidefalls with the arm behind the back...great way to torque your shoulder. I wonder if ia a technique for when you're partially handcuffed?
