    Crazy Monkey Defense - You Tube

    Rodney King has just put up some videos from the Crazy Monkey Defense program on YouTube if you are interested in checking it out. Just a small selection to start but he is planning on adding more.

    In his "defending the jab" vid, he says, "you don't want to taste the fury" That's awesome.

    I love his stuff. Very applicable. He's related to SBG, right?

    What did he study before coming up with Crazy Monkey (other than Western boxing)?

    Rodney used to be part of the SBG although is on his own now.

    As for Rodney's background you can probably find it on his site, or if you can't you could ask on his forum about it. I know Rodney started in traditional martial arts before he moved on to boxing and Muay Thai. He is a black belt in BJJ under the Machado's too.

    Rodney King's "Crazy Monkey" defense is just a modern interpretation of old school Muay Thai defense positions. If I remember correctly, he called it "Crazy Monkey" because he actually witnessed a monkey fighting with other monkeys, and using his hands/arms in the defense positions and it gave him the idea regarding how to teach these defensive basics.

    I thought the inner forearm is turned out and pushed slightly away in the old school MT stuff, rather than hunkering down and covering up(I was also under the impression that they pretty much always stood tall, rather than going hunchback)?

    For those of you who have his videos or are interested he has just released some additional videos.

    Here's a post from his site about the upcoming DVD's he is working on (the new Fight Compass DVD has been released already):

    'We spent the day filming and more tomorrow. The outcome will be the Fight Compass vol 1 DVD, that will introduce everyone to the 4 fundamental styles of fighters. The 4 major strategies in each one of those styles and how to improve those styles and much more. This will replace our old Sparring 101 DVD...and the material on the Fight Compass is brand new, never seen before outside of our pro-membership program and seminars.

    In addition we shot PLAY For Performance vol 1, that will give everyone a bunch of really cool, fun drills that will not only enhance your stand-up game, but also bring fun back to your stand-up game training instead of the monotonies working of fundamentals over and over again.

    Depending on time tomorrow and how everyone is feeling, we may shoot an additional DVD on CMD Focus Mitt training. I know many people have been asking for this for sometime so we hope to get that done.

    Our next project is to shoot our CM Boxing for the Street DVD. We really want to showcase how boxing can be an amazing art for self-defense. While there are many instructionals on boxing, very few if any really cover boxing for self-defense and very few have been able to leave the ring behind for a solid understanding of boxing street style.
