    To clarify, I am not Karl. I have my own views on this material which, for the moment, I am keeping to myself as I do not want to unfairly prejudice the contributions here.

    For clarification's sake, is this better or worse (in terms of hilarity) than Nevarikan?

    Animals again.

    Maybe there should be a rule about this: you can only name things after an animal if you've actually tried it on the animal in question.

    Case in point: "Bearpaw".

    Oh, snap, that's the hippie who made his own kung fu. I couldn't remember his name. I'm going with better (hilarity), due to all the clutter in the garage/dojo.

    Methinks he went by "monkeysofdoom".

    I'm sure others with "monkey" in their user-name felt honoured.

    Can we give him some specific feedback?

    This is his talk forum

    http://www.instinctive-combatives.co.uk/forum/

    Admittedly it is new, but there are sections where he explains where he is coming from in more depth.

    I posted this in the thread titled "jayne's story"

    It seems that while have you have taught this young lady a number of important things about self defense, you have done her quite a disservice. You've taught her to be violent and aggressive during a physical confrontation, and you've taught her how to turn that instinct on. This is a good thing, it is often that violence and aggression will help you survive a fight. The problem lies in the fact that even in that state, that little girl couldn't hurt a fly with her strikes. While you've taught her to strike when threatened, you haven't taught her how to strike when threatened.
    It is quite clear that you yourself are pretty clueless, when it comes to effective striking. For example, in your "bear paw strike" you have taken an elementary martial arts concept (follow through on your strike/punch through your target) and taken it way too far. As a result your strike has become merely a push, and while you might move somebody with your push (where the head goes, the body follows), you're not generating any real knockout power from it. And there's no way that Jayne could hurt somebody with that strike, because she has no body weight to put behind it.
    I strongly suggest you stop teaching for now, go learn a real martial art so you have some background, and then get back to it. Right now you are hurting people more than you are helping them.
    You might disagree with what I've said, and you'll probably delete this post, but I would recommend that you humble yourself quickly, because the bullies are comin'...

    Hahah dam, that video made me smile anyway.. thanks.

    I do agree with the first point of the video, that aggression and violence is the most important factor in a fight, but everyone who watches sport or even plays chess should know this.. You can't win a ball game if you only play defense.

    The lapel grab and repetitive palm strikes to the head was very average, anyone with even the slightest stand up training is going to clinch up and destroy you with knees or just bring a horizontal elbow smack into your face, guess which hurts more; palm strikes or elbows?

    I can't comment on the rest of the videos, was too painful to watch.

    6b) This suggests a second interpretation of the phrase "alive training".
