    It tends to make things suspect when someone posts two negative points from some unknown source to start off a thread without asking about any positives. Hmmm, best way to funnel a discussion so that it focuses on the negative.

    The source appears to have opinions that reveals certain weaknesses in their own understanding of the basic principles blade work.


    One point is about how size dictates the bladework of Sayoc . The premise would need to be that blade work is used like a rattan stick, where power is utilized. If that is so, then why not just use a stick? A knife in the hands of a person in an andrenalized state makes them dangerous to themselves and those around them if untrained. Would you trade a knife stab for a stick strike from a 110 pound woman?

    So if the source knew what he was talking about, then how would he come up with this sophomoric opinion?

    Second point is just as ridiculous by posting more heresay: To study under a more "established" (what does that mean?) FMA then buy an anatomy book.

    Which indicates that the source considers an "established " FMA does not know anatomy?

    Did this come from someone whose opinion they actually trust?

    Let's break this down - if you were a student seeking training, wouldn't two red flag statements like that indicate an irresponsible source ?

    Yeah, works the same with argument, stats, or government surveys....

    I don't follow everything you've said, but sounds good/seems to track.
    "Judo is a study of techniques with which you may kill if you wish to kill, injure if you wish to injure, subdue if you wish to subdue, and, when attacked, defend yourself" - Jigoro Kano (1889)
    ***Was this quote "taken out of context"?***

    "The judoist has no time to allow himself a margin for error, especially in a situation upon which his or another person's very life depends...."
    ~ The Secret of Judo (Jiichi Watanabe & Lindy Avakian), p.19

    "Hope is not a method... nor is enthusiasm."
    ~ Brigadier General Gordon Toney
