    I don't know anything about Filipino arts and ran across this. Has anybody

    Felix is Lynn Thompson's training partner in the Cold Steel Warrior's Edge series (at least in the old VHS ones). For those who don't know, Lynn is the president of the company. In the parts with live sparring with trainers, Lynn very clearly outclasses Felix in their style of knife sparring. If you type Felix Valencia into Youtube, you can find lots of relevant results and draw your own conclusions.

    The TRS add is way over the top, but all of their marketing, and they have legit productions from people like Mark Hatmaker, Oleg Taktarov, and Paul Vunak.

    Also, he looks a lot like Maul Mornie:

    I recommend not talking to Lynn about their relationship. The first and only time I ever talked about it he got so keyed up he spit in my mouth. In fact, that's a story I tell often. "Lynn Thompson spit in my mouth."

    Felix. I can't find any video of him doing DB style sparring. I assume he acts differently so as to not get his skull cracked. He has good distance and timing, but is waaaaaay gimicky in how he fights.

    Well, he's still resting on Lameco laurels, isn't he?
    How do you sell a very simple and pragmatic art that takes a short time to acquire and then just needs to be drilled? He's gotta sell ya tons of complex techniques, right? That takes time... & makes money!$!

    And for some reason has to put both his hands behind his back when he's sparring. It's like jackasses who learn how to bob and weave, so they have to drop both hands down to clown on you.

    He should try that on someone who trains Floro Fighting. That'd be very entertaining. It'd be like watching kids hit a piñata.
