    (my only problem with those JKD instructors now is the're still maintaining the whole 'our art is more 'Deadly' than any 'sport fighting' attitude.)
    I've trained with a few Bob Breen guys (including this dude http://www.davidonuma.com/) and I haven't found that to be their attitude at all.

    I never beat my instructor not because I felt I could not beat him, but out of respect. And by the way, most instructors, especially in Karate, will never spar against students so as not to lose their umbrella of invincibilty...

    I spar my instructors in BJJ and MT all the time. So far this has not, sadly, made them seem any less invincible.

    I haven't seen very many other FMA styles kicking. The parts called "sikaran" in pekiti include low round kicks with the hip turning fully over, stomp kicks like what Vera used against Jardine, knees to low targets, and some footsweeps that look like tai chi.

    You can YouTube some of the "Sikaran" vids. I find it next to impossible to believe it's not heavily Karate or Taegwondo influenced. Acrobatic kicks, "kata", etc. Yes, there's an obvious FMA piece to it, some stick work, etc, but you can't tell me that the Sikaran style isn't a Filipino karate derivative.

    Also, while we're on the topic of Kali Tudo & FMA in MMA, has anybody watched Ron Baliki's Panantukan DVDs entitled "Filipino Boxing"?

    I think sikaran is both its own style and a general term for a class of techniques, like pananjakman.
