man dont you know that cma practictioners dont need to fight in order to proves thems selves. they just break coconuts with there hands, and do chi materilization, and charge outreagous amounts for there classes and spend more time telling stories about how they could beat anyone. i mean why would they fight anyone to prove it when they can fool the masses witht he above crap.Eduardo "Why'd you stop."
Me "I was kicked in the head by the guys sparring next to me."
Eduardo "Ino what happened but i didnt say you could stop."
Me "Um.. I guess I keep going."
Eduardo "You dont stop until i say stop, you dont get tired until i say your tired, keep going."

My cousin gave me some tapes of him doing tkd. I learned from those tapes. When I beat up an Akido instructor, and made him take rest breaks, I used TKD. I learned Bjj from watching ufc and pride and then I copied them and wrestled my cousin for practice. I choked him out and he tapped.

And then when they actually have to fight they get the **** kicked out of them. Yes, that happens a lot. It's kindof sad. Well part of that is the way CMA was traditionally taught, taking years sometimes to get to fighting. Plus, the guys that do wushu now want to get paid for teaching forms so they breed a lot of nonsense. Not all CMA guys don't fight. There's plenty of sanshou, sanda and kuoshu tournaments. Just find a teacher that does fighting.

In the last video it ppers he is telling them not to
push the bag away, but, to pull back at contact.
This could be his version of bag control, or just some
sh*tty advice. . .who knows.
