A guy I know is starting a shorin ryu group in a park, and I'm going to check it out tonight. I'm less excited after seeing those videos.

There are a lot of flaky techniques in Shorin Ryu. No doubt about it. But it is also often a brutal "blood on the floor" style of krotty."We often joke -- and we really wish it were a joke -- that you will only encounter two basic problems with your 'self-defense' training.
1) That it doesn't work
2) That it does work"

http://www.ehow.com/video_2368135_de...back-head.html Who cares about Shorinryu? This guy is managing to actually give a bad name to "Yeshua's Ryu" when the poor thing might not even exist in the first place.
I kind of want to comment on his video, but only to see how much Jesus his response contains. Having already read enough DTG/Choson stuff though, I don't think I actually need to run the experiment to have a good idea what the results would be.It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

btw, what the hell is he wearing???"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...."
