    RATINGS: How Do Aliveness.....does your school look like this?

    OK, probably the biggest confusion in these reviews is how to rate your particular schools "Aliveness".

    I have made it easy for you. Below is the Aliveness rating scale and a video of the type of contact or training that corresponds to that rating.

    You now have no excuse when I decide to delete your review and stamp your avatar with an "Interwebs Doofus" label for rating your Wushu or Tai Chi school a 10.......so here it is.

    1: No sparring/contact, performance demonstration/forms only.

    YouTube - XMA Mike Chat

    YouTube - HIMAC 2007 Karate Form



    Sorry, that last one just cracked me up...

    2-3: Compliant partner drills, board breaking, point sparring

    YouTube - Wing Chun - Chi Sao fast and slow mo

    YouTube - Women's self defense simple step

    YouTube - Combat Tai Chi

    YouTube - Excellent Aikido Demonstration

    4-5: Light contact continuous sparring (negligible pain/risk).

    YouTube - karate sparing



    6-7: Medium contact with excessive safety gear.

    YouTube - TAE-KWON-DO Tornado Kick!!!!!

    YouTube - Full Contact Sparring (American Kickboxing) 2 R2



    8-9: Hard contact with reasonable safety gear and/or limited to one range of fighting (standup/grappling).

    YouTube - David BASS 4th Match at BJJ PAN AM 2008 (Alliance BJJ NYC)

    YouTube - Huge Boxing K.O 4



    YouTube - Muay Thai KO

    YouTube - Boxing Kangaroo

    Don't **** with the Kangaroo BIATCH!!!!

    10: Regular (monthly or less) skill testing via full contact, full range fighting, minimum safety equipment.



    Bas set to Big Pun.....hellzzzz yea!!!!



    So, there it is......You now have no excuse to rate your XMA training as a 10.

    "Yea, but GJ, my school doesn't wear the footy pads and we can Roshambo each other all we want"


    Whatever, the scale is not perfect by any means. So, if you feel your TKD school matches the vids for a 6 or 7, give it the 6 or 7 and explain why you think it is a 6 or 7. I may think, whatever, your school is actually a 5, but I will not be nit picky on anything other than obvious infections of stupidity where you give your sons TKD school a 9 or a 10.

    In the 'light sparring vid' on the hardwood floor, it looks more like medium contact. They look like they're giving it some effort, but just happen to kinda suck/ throw shitty punches that are weak, despite intention behind them.

    You answered your own question.


    Hardwood floor, weak shity punches= light sparring. They are also throwing light punches and kicks to the head. They are hitting with the top of the toes.

    Thanks for posting Anthony. However, it would be better if you actually posted a review of your school in this section.

    In the context of this thread and the concept of "aliveness", "going live" and practicing with "aliveness" are 2 separate things; although, you certainly can't say that a martial art is practiced with "aliveness" without going "live".

    For example, I train BJJ and submission grappling, thus, that portion of my training is limited as to range and thus be an 8-9 for "Aliveness"; however, the guys who train on our Pro and Amature MMA Teams would have a 10 in that they cover all ranges of combat with full resistance.

    Now go post a review of your school.

    "Killer Willard" deserves a 10. He definitely attempted some GnP at 1:04.
