When you spar you get hit, so sparring with these tools means you will get clocked from time to time despite our efforts to provide a safe training environment. As Bruce said, "their is no such thing as dry land swimming." If you want to learn to swim you have to get in the water! PERIOD! I don't think you can claim to be an RBSD school otherwise.

    We don't just arbitrarily beat students with crow bars, so forgive me if that's the impression I gave. If it was I'll edit my review.

    Do you have a source for this claim? I have to tell you, that working in the criminal defense system, the majority of criminal assault cases do not involve weapons.

    Didn't Shamrock represent a style that incorporated Japanese shoot wrestling and Japanese-rules muay Thai? Didn't Jason Delucia fight with a mixture of 5-animal and white belt level GJJ?

    So much wrong with this I don't even know where to start. How about observing that BJJ began before BL was even born for starters.

NO HOLDS BARRED is really MANY HOLDS BARRED, don't be decieved.
    With the exception of eye gouging and biting, these techniques were available to anyone fighting in early NHB. ALL of them were available to a fighter competing in Vale Tudo in Brazil.

He thought I was about to tap but I reached in my jacket and grabbed my (unloaded) 32 cal Deringer and jammed it in his groin to prove a point. The fight would have continued in the cage. In the street I would have won.
    You took advantage of his (correct) courtesy in not popping the arm of a fellow gym-mate.

I have no problem taking a beating for the sake of learning. I like MMA and alot of JKD guys don't do well in it, by I also understand why.
    Ask yourself this: Do the ring-legal techniques practiced in you school constitute an effective MMA strategy? If the answer is 'Yes' then get your fighters in some shows so we can test this claim in public. If not, then ask yourself 'why not?'

    Anna Trocity,

    Some creep attacks you with a club with full intentions of raping you, and shoves you in the back of your car. Hey your brothers baseball bat is on the floor. Would you pick it up and use it? Of course. So what do you have? A fight between a stick and bat. The stick is a one handed weapen leaving another hand available for hitting. A bat is a 2 handed piece of sporting equipment that can actually hinder you if you don't know how to use it effectively. The traditional baseball swing puts you at a disadvantage because it is overly telegraphed making it easy to defend against with a more maneuverable weopen like a club. Therefore, you better know how to use it efficiently applying principles of economic movement.

    You can say that would never happen. However, it is that type of mentality that has created a world full of victems. (just my opinion)

    oh yeah if I just so happen to be in my car and get attacked and my brother's baseball bat just so happens to be on the floor then I can have a baseball bat duel with the bad guy! Great thinking! This doesn't sound just a little over the top to you?

    I still don't understand how you can claim to spar with crowbars.

    You might want to re-think this statement -- BJJ is far older than JKD.

    seems like it would be really hard to fight with either a stick OR a bat in the back seat of a car.

    i don't think that people here take issue with scenario based training (as long as it is done in an alive manner) but they are more taking issue with the way you are doing that training.

    rattan sticks/padded weapons are useful for training
    baseball bat/crowbar are not useful for training

    shock knives/rubber knives/dull training knives are useful for training
    live blades are not useful for training

    you do get credit for the use of "creep" in the above scenario. haven't heard that one since the 70's.

    This same type of debating has been going on since feudal japan! I tell you all what, I will do some more research on the claims made by my instructors. And I will let you know what I find and where. Whether it is in my favor or not. It still won't be good enough though. you will still bash what I do.

    Samuel Browning, what state do you live in? What is your job? Criminal Defense Attorney?
    I have never heard of any one getting robbed at "finger point". I heard that claim from Vunak, I have experienced it personally (and have survived because of our training thank you). This could all be coincidental I just believe it to be less than probable.

    If you read my post in it's entirety you would see that we are starting a MMA club, so when fighters get fights I will gladly post'em. Win or lose! I am 28 and I am searching for what works and what doesn't, which is why I want to compete and see what MMA has to offer.

    I have seen MMA guys go on with arms being snapped in half from trying to stop kicks. His armbar unexpectedly failed and even if it didn't it wouldn't have necessarilly stopped a gun toting asshole from blowing his nuts off. Which is honestly more effective at stopping a fight? JKD, BJJ, TKD, an armbar, or a gun? That is reality!

    If it is a falicy that Bruce was the one who started mixing martial arts (so that they work together synergistically, not just arbitrarilly throwing stuff together) then give me some examples so that I can research them please. Anyone who did that back than was considered a heretic, so I give them props.

    See what you did? You just tailored the argument to fit your needs. The bold is exactly what Bruce did, he threw stuff together and then worked out what was right and wrong. Also, he never fully finished he DIED, as he was coming to the realization of what he was creating.
