    One of our WWG forum members, Boyd Richie an old time sambo guy, went there to check it out:

    The guy is older, teaches Ornelas system in which they never compete sport or otherwise. He only teaches kids up to 15 years old once or twice a week. The focus is on TKD. Needless to say, when I got here I checked it out thinking Oh Boy! What a disappointment. I checked it out last year just for giggles and nothing had changed.

    that's too bad, we could use a little more "rigor" and a little less "rigormortis"

    :biggrin:OMFG!!!:biggrin:

    but seriously, what a disappointment. Alot of the Sambo ranking in the States is just a money-making prestige scam.
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    I can just imagine. This was my talk with Vince. We needed better quality control. They started falling under the banner "We're combat so we don't do competition". This is the disagreement I had with him. I have nothing bad to say about Vince or David. It is what it is. Too bad too. The guy they gave rank to had potential just a few things that needed serious tweaking.

    huh, and look where they are now. No wonder the "Omega salute" is what it is; they should've listened!

    Everytime I'm reminded about this makes me want to push sambo more and more. I just hate politics.

    But, TKD teaches you how to jump into the air and kick a samurai warrior off a horse.
