    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    cross training

    not calling anyone a fool or comedown on styles:bootyshak but a saying I live by is a wise man can learn even from a fool .

    my basic style is kokondo , vary complete .

    but I have picked up a lot from others , I see a new way of looking a bunk and if its good I keep it .

    I know pressure points are laughed at , but they work ,

    styles just really show an approach to the waza , or a meaning , usually non lethal .


    but the wazas the same ,

    studying others I see different interpretation to the bunki or uses for the waza . and expands my use .


    I know guys like the human stun gun can be funny and his . but there's still something to be learn , for one thing the no touch knock out is just stupid .
    wile your standing there holding your hand out to throw your energy at some one they are beating the crap out of you , like the three day death touch ,what the hell do you care about this guy in three days , the immediate time is important .


    but with all the hoodoo waza out there there is some good stuff too .

    so when I make fun of people I'm not dismissing them altogether . even George .

    Please put the glue down and step away from it. Hopefully the damage from the fumes won't be permanent.

    No, they don't. At least, not the way pressure point junkies think they do.
    Jesus loves you. I think you're an asshole.

    I always took this to mean that by observing the actions of the foolish, one can learn what *not* to do.

    Do you mean pressure points as in nerve clusters, or ancient Chinese medicinal mumbo jumbo?

    Can we has video of resisting opponent pls?

    Seriously, show us a video of you, or anyone else, using pressure points with success in a fully resisting scenario like an MMA match, or even just a straight up grappling match. If you have video evidence then we will entertain your ideas and debate their merits. If you're just spewing forth your mystic pressure point BS with no backing then crawl back under your bridge and begone young dope fiend.
