    Yeah, Ross Enamait had an article about those and recommending to fill the bases with sand or sand and water (not just water alone.)

    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

    according to the analysis I suck and have no power or speed I have never really had my skill critiqued before so I thought I was pretty good but now I see differently so there is really no point thank you for the offer anyway.

    Rarely do we close threads, usually under extreme circumstances.

    You shouldn't be humiliated, you should be elated to have something to work on. We're not saying YOU suck, we're saying your technique sucks.

    If I was good at judo, I wouldn't have to go to class. I go because I get my ass kicked, I fail at nearly every throw I attempt, and my cardio is not nearly fight-worthy. Yet I am excited by all of this, particularly being the unwilling uke-by-ippon in a match at the last tournament I went to (which made "throw of the week" on my opponent's website BTW).

    Why? Because it gives me something to train for, a challenge to overcome. Stop moping and go for a run.

    Ah for the love of God man, he isn't challenging you to Mortal Kombat, nor you need to have "fighting spirit" to spar or simply meet and have a beer.

    That's a loser's point of view. This objective criticism you are encountering for the first time, not from one or two, but from many people with experience, that's called life. Life doesn't give you the empty validations you want, but the corrections you need... if you so desire to improve. It's called a wake up call, and life is full of wake up calls for everybody.

    Then there are two type of people: those who takes those "wake up" moments and make the best of out them, and those who turn sully and dejected. Which one would you want to be?

    You have to ask yourself, what did you originally wanted to hear when you posted your videos? Something to pelt your ego, or objective criticism from experienced people? The title of your thread ("Evaluate my kicks and knees") indicate the later, or so I hope.

    If Omega or someone with his experience is hinting at an opportunity to meet, dude, why pass the opportunity. Don't you want to learn? To improve? Or how about just meet someone who tried to help you on this website in person and have a beer or something?

    Don't let the mountain of objective (and justified) criticism over the internet turn into the EMO version of a greek tragedy dude affecting you in real life. Be smart, lighten out, and make the best out of it.

    Huh? No, you asked for your kicks and knees to be evaluated I thought when I was in the area I could give you some tips. Sorry that you took it that way. I never thought you were arrogant, never offended by what you said. If that's the case I won't bother.

    TxSanshou, just to stress the importance, Read El Macho's post very carefully and remember it.

    Um, on that new video, don't jump around so much (its a little excessive) and make kicks sharper, they have a wide movement, aaannnddddd make the turn on those back-kicks a lot faster and more closed.
