    Tho, a caveat: outdoor rough-ground training does have some benefits. Regardless of whatever style you train, you should do some outdoor training so you get to know how uneven ground feels, how your arts traditional footwork may cause some problems, etc.

    Have picked up some things, even just being in the back garden. Found out it takes a bit more work to turn in for a throw when you're wearing trainers on hot tarmac and that breakfalls actually hurt with no mats. On the plus side though i haven't knocked my self out yet by playing silly buggers in a small garden.

    Yeah, if you get thrown over it helps to try to get your feet on the ground first for a little pre-contact before you try to break-fall. & I've found that you have to learn to step, that slidey-foot bullshit that works so well on tatami with suede-soled tabi just doesn't work in real life.

    Only tried one session with tabi and they didn't even make it through the warm up before they annoyed me with their toe segregation. Did get a better reaction with a no-gi boshiken as opposed to with the heavy training jackets we wear. Yet to try it in winter though when we're all wrapped up eskimos.

    That knife disarm was horrible, and how does a video transition from fighting with swords to disarming a gun? But the actual hand to hand combat... okay most of it is pretty bad but at 1:12 the uke starts striking more like a fighter than anyone at my old booj dojo.

    Ok, i freely admit noob status here, so i understand i may not have as much insight as everyone else when i say WHAT THE MONKEY HELLS IS THAT? He blocked the knife with, what, his vocal cords of doom? And did i miss something, or did he evade a rope garrote with what appeared to be a half-assed mastery of ballet? Not to mention the excellent, excellent example later in the video of HOW TO GET YOURSELF SHOT!

    Who knows. maybe part of the training is to get bad ass enough to block a bullet with your nose...

    I like how his response to someone being in fighting stance is to stand up straight with hands down and feet square to his opponent. In the booj I was taught some techniques from this position too, its one of the kumai. However the purpose of teaching the kumai is to be able to transition into a fighting stance when necessary or be able to react to an attack that comes before you have time to get to a fighting stance. Actually I think I did hear some nonsense about using it so you don't telegraph information about what kind of fighter you are, but still...
