    Funny how you are flip flopping. It isn't the style when it suits your argument. It is the style when it does.
    The style is a vehicle. If someone has no training, they are useless, but someone trained in Kempo, Shotokan, MT, Judo, or whatever has a vehicle - a set of knowledge about movement. Once a core competency is established, it's up to the trainer and the fighter. When SHTF either on the street or in the ring, it's all up to the fighter.

    I'm just saying Kempo teaches strikes and kicks, just like Karate, various CMA's, MT, etc... When the rubber hits the road, it's about the fighter and a real fight is over in 10 seconds or less.

    Oh no, there is no true time of fight statistic despite what many teachers say.

    Amazing how circular these arguments have become in this thread. I said it once, I'll say it again...I HATE that SKK is related with Villari. He's a terrible front man.

    I will say this, without some other stuff added, SKK is far from a complete system. That's why my instructor is also a BJJ blue belt (much like another local BJJ black belt we have teaches SKK and BJJ together)...I have wondered how I would hold up against another fighter in the ring. Maybe someday I'll get the chance to find out...
    That's my point too. SKK has a philosophy of mastering many types of fighting. In practice, it probably almost never happens, and Villari is an old man, so the whole argument has turned into whether or not I'm a complete idiot (which I don't appreciate), instead of whether or not SKK is worth a hill of beans.

    My opinion, yes it's worth a hill of beans just like every other art. Give it to a good instructor and a good student and it'll be a useful tool. I've also done nothing but encourage people to study other arts and become a well-rounded fighter... I'm such a preacher, right?! :godtroll:

    You've never been in a real fight have you?

    Okay. That all depends on the context, doesn't it? A champion boxer will win a fight in a boxing ring, but that would not prepare him for a firefight against an experienced soldier. In any true no rules fight, I'd give it to the professional soldier because he can shoot you. I'm assuming you mean in a one on one fight with punches and kicks and stuff, and the closest thing is vale tudo. Kempo is not known for its success there. If the question is who do I think could kick the most ass in any environment sans guns but possibly including small hand weapons I'd go with Bas Rutten.

    Everything I say is criticized, and everyone thinks it's soooo obvious that I suck. I haven't claimed to know anything extraordinary, and I've consistently mentioned from the beginning that there are serious issues with most Villari schools.

    Kempo, however, is a decent system, but the fighter's own determination is the deciding factor in any reasonably fair fight.

    Can we treat each-other like we're all human beings trying to chit chat some MA info?
    I believe that I tried to tell you that continuing this thread is a bad idea. But seeing as we are all still here:
    1) We have no opinion on YOUR skills, we are concerning ourselves with training systems and methods. So unless your real name is Fred Villari, don't take anything personally.
    2) For a thread where a first post is a necro + lengthy tome + defense of something or somebody, this thread would pass as remarkably civil around here.
    3) Everything that you write is criticized because almost everything anybody writes around here is criticized. We rigourously challenge anything that has even the slightest whiff of BS, hence the name of the forum.
    4) If you train with aliveness and resisting opponents, then vids would be greatly appreciated. We don't claim to be deadly either, but we know what training should look like.

    I can agree with that. I'm not a kempo supremacist. I just don't think it's a steaming pile of crap like everyone else on here seems to think...
