    Has anyone read the book?

    Just curious, seeing as I ordered it a few days ago.

    If so, what did you think of it?

    Cheers

    Sour grapes.

    I may go and order the book to see what all the fuss is about.

    No such thing as bad publicity, after all.
    I may as well, the book is only 12 bucks on Amazon after all.

    If this was a subtle troll to get us to buy the book... bravo...

    if this was thread was intended to discredit Rory Miller, it seems to have failed to convince the martial arts historians here, the researchers, the koryu guys and the casual reader wondering "WTF?".

    The problem isn't the issue of lineage, but the lack of actual evidence that Mr. NY-I-fail-at-the-internet-BUDOKA has to back up his accusations.

    Man sets hare running to see how far it will go etc.

    Man is confused that no-one chases blindly after the hare.

    Man is more confused that his motives are questioned: why did he set hare loose; who authorised him to set hare loose; what right had he to keep hare in the first place; was it really a hare at all.

    Man is trapped so tries to obfuscate by re-directing such questions. By what right do you ask me why I set the hare loose? Who are YOU to speak to me anyway? What's your AGENDA? While you are questioning my validity, take a look at the hare 'cos it's getting away scot (Rory) free? Man tries SHOUTING in capitals and over large font.

    Man increasingly shows desperation in an attempt to get away - so, expect the Indian Rope Trick. "Look behind you Children".....

    LOL. That hemp-induced allucinogenic hare tail pretty much sums it up.

    Seriously, nobody can be so obstuse as NYBUDOKA unless done on purpose.

    I have no bone to pick, and I'm clueless about MA, certainly more so on koryu, but it's evident that NYBUDOKA could not tolerate the fact people didn't take his inquisitorial word as Gospel and ran after Miller with pitchforks and torches crying "burn hiiiiiiiim!!!" in the process.

    If he indeed had a point to make, he fucked it up with his arrogant posturing. And the worst thing of all is that he sincerely does not get it. He's that arrogant and that stupid.

    So what's next now?
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
