    So that was martial dancing instead of martial arts?

    This school is right down the street from where I train. I stop by every once in awhile on my way home to watch. Let me tell you this is about the same thing I see during normal class. I can stand there for 10 mins. some nights and not see anything going on.

    It's a major belt factory. From word of mouth from some of the teenage kids in my school that know kids from this school, is when they ask about their techniques, they are too dangerous to show them.

    My instructor hates this school because it stands for everything he is against.

    It's sad to see Martial Arts portrayed this way.

    Oh wow. North American TMAers who weren't too fat to breathe! I'm too in awe of that to even make fun of the techniques.
    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

    Its videos of the likes of these that make me hesitant to even call what I do 'martial arts'. The term has come to include such rugged innovation at the high end of the spectrum, and such wretched self delusion on the other.

    Now THAT on the other hand looked like some sort of belt testing. At least part of.

    Again - just sayin'.

    Man, that is just so... compliant.
    Imagine the surprise of that girl when she takes on a person that really wants to stab her?
    Or when she fights someone that spars... Or heck , any drunk person in t3h str33tz.

    But meh, I did see some techniques that look like they might work.

    Interestingly enough, Tristar does spar, though heavily padded. Not sure about ruleset or anything--saw it in an article in a magazine. Still, that puts them above most Bujinkan schools.
