          Have these guys ever heard of off-balancing? Or punching hard, for that matter??
          There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

            lolers!

            Is the guy doing the voice overs doing a william shatner impression?

            I wish somebody would come and use dim mak (or any other "horrifying new street lethal technique!") on me so I could see it's true power. :(

              Oh yes...Gary Romel...
              Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the fuck I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

                  That was the MA equivalent of a massive, sudden aneurism followed by a complete anal prolapse. In other words, it sucked.

                    Holy crap. After watching that horrible clip and reading the thread I have to go buy a new monitor now. The glass on my current one just got corroded when I uncontrollably projectile vomited on it.

                    That is just sick. These people should be beaten to death.

                    you ninja fags just got owned in a bad way. this thread should go to the classics and mega thread forum due to the sheer size of taebo_master and gajusceaser's penis. (with which they just smacked across these ninja's faces)

                      WTF was that? I couldn't tell if it was a fighting demo or an episode of pokemon.

                        Hey Guys,

                        Thanks for the very constructive critisism regarding my new site and demo.....(insert sarcasm here)

                        Ok, so I deserve it for the cheezy lighting, and of course the audio overdubbing was cheese mixed with hype, but im reworking it....

                        I am also working on a clip that is more in context with reality. I did some basic apps. in a slow, and non violent manner. But it should be known that the first app I have used in a real altercation, and the rest in hard contact sparring.

                        In classes, (which I teach on the military installation to all adults) we do sparring drills, reaction drills, mostly application work, with a mix of push=hands and other Neijia drills.

                        It should also be noted that non-cooperative training is included, I do have one student who can bench press 450 pounds and is very fast for his size. He didnt think I looked like much until I opened his gaurd and slammed him to the ground in a blink. No, i dont use any Aikido, it is a blend of Tai chi, xingyi, and Bagua, with some pressure point striking IF the student is skilled enough to get lucky with the points later on in training.

                        If anyone is in my area (Oklahoma city), I would be happy to give you a friendly demo or class n person. Skeptics welcome, but any non-friendly people will not be tolerated. Im not interested in mouth boxing over the internet, especially if the responses are as childish and inept as the ones above,but legitimate questions and constructive critisism will be addressed, just send me an email at [email protected].

                        Ive used my stuff to save my own ass in real life, and I think its good legitimate training that I am offereing. I have taken precautions against being a McDojo.... here is the short list

                        1. No contracts

                        2. No unifomrs

                        3. Sparring, and fast hard contact drills

                        4 I take my students to other teachers seminars, in the past we have taken silat, kali, and BJJ from other instructors to round off skills

                        5. I dont teach kids

                        6. I tell the students to check out every other school before joining mine, and support them taking two classes at once.

                        7. Ive taught guys with between 2-25 years in the following arts and they were amazed at my skill and happy to learn what I had to offer them -Krav maga, Muay thai, Kenpo, Aikido, wing chun, bagua, tai chi, xingyi, Liu he ba fa, boxing, wrestling, shorin ryu, TKD, and American Kickboxing, and shootfighting/jj off the top of my head.

                        8. I freely admit I lack the skill to teach ALL ranges of fighting, particulary groundfighting, I have some basic skills I have learned to save my own butt, however I suggest students seek qualified instruction elsewhere in that area.

                        regards,

                        Gary

                          The deadly secret of Taijiquan aka " the dim mak" must never fall into the hands of children. It is too deadly of a tool.

                            quote from site:"Are you ready to learn one of the most fluid, dynamic and powerful self-defense systems in existence? For the last few centuries these methods have all been hidden in forms, cryptic Chinese terms and only understood by a handful of people throughout the world.
                            These arts have been streamlined to offer a more focused combative based curriculum oriented to the needs of 21st century street realties. Flowing Combat is taught in a way that is conducive to western understanding using the latest advances in training methodologies."

                              Well, Gary, it really sounds like your heart is in the right place, so I'll give you some suggestions.

                              You might have already heard of some of these, but here goes:

                              If you don't want to run a mcdojo and aren't in it just for the money, please, consider the following.

                              Never utter or print the words dim mok again. Anyone who speaks of this not in complete jest loses all martial art credibility instantly. Unless they are speaking to a 6-year-old.

                              Never make outrageous over-the-top claims. Only fools and the extremely naieve believe them. If you don't want a dojo full of morons, don't advertise to morons. You can easily distinguish yourself from the pack by being cool, calm, and factual in your advertising. People will respect you for it.

                              Please don't talk about ninjas, ever.

                              If you don't train it full contact on resisting opponents, you will be very unlikely to be able to use it in a real fight.

                              When I see a promotional video clip for a martial art or dojo, all respect for it leaves immediately when I see ANY special effect. Almost any music you use will be cheesy. Simple demonstrations of techniques on resisting opponents is enough to convince me you are probably legit. Show some heavy bag work, or students doing pushups so people know you actually get in shape. That is important to people.

                              If you admit you lack groundfighting, find someone who knows groundfighting and get them to teach at your dojo/school as an assistant instructor. Then you can claim that you teach a comprehensive striking/groundwork curriculum.


                              If you truly desire to run a non-Mcdojo, I would love to see another try at a promotional clip. Hopefully I won't have to replace my monitor after the next one.
