    MABS Cull: A Forms discussion

    I fully agree that Sambo is a martial art. As far as kata; I have been a martial artist for 17 years, and an MMA fighter for the past 4 years. I have never won a fight, tournament, competition, or barroom brawl with kata.

    Back to camcorder grading...the nearest Sambo school to me is about 4 hours away. If sambosteve opened up a school anywhere near me, I'd be camping in front of the doors, begging him to come teach a class at my school. Until then, if that's all I have access to, then so be it. I'll be totally upfront about the fact that I have submitted a video for Mr. Clarke's observation and critique. I do not advertise any rank in his system, or use it as a marketing tool; nor do I claim any "Sambo Rank". I simply take advantage of any available resource so that my students can improve their Sambo. It is what it is. Seems like the biggest uproar is over the claiming of rank via camcorder, and it's use as a marketing tool.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I have too. Won 1st. in kata at the 2009 Isshinryu National Hall of Fame Tournament. Disregard previous post. I'll take a decent double-leg and a couple elbows to the face over kata mastery any day though.

    Anyway, wrong forum to discuss the merits and flaws of kata. If it works for you, cool. As long as people are training hard, the God bless them, regardless of style.
