    However, I think I can defend myself. Maybe not as well as some of you warriors but for an average guy I'm fine. Even if you don't like the way FSD sparrs it sure taught me a hell of a lot.


    Sorry for giving you a hard time before Enhanced but I really thought you were an instructor. It seemed as though you had been drinking the kool-aid for a long time and one is always suspicious of the nut-huggers.

    As for what you said above, I have to tell my experience again. I'm not sure how long you've done FSD, but I assure you that I was a faithful practitioner for over 10 years. I wish I knew who you were because we might have even sparred at one time. Anyway, I was a good sparrer, wasn't afraid of anyone, and could hold my own against many of the sifus. Having said that, I was seriously schooled when I left FSD. I'm a confident fighter and thought that I would have no problem against the "average fighter". However, now I'm not so sure. I have to agree with TKD and tell you that rarely will you be fighting an average fighter. There are people who shoot their mouths off but don't really want to fight you, which will allow yours and my "aggressive fsd ask questions later attitude" capitalize on these individuals. But for those who want to fight/attack/mug you will not be like these others I just mentioned. They will make short work of your FSD techniques. The best thing you've got in your corner is a hard head and hopefully ability to take a lot of punches. For me I would rather be on the giving end and correct my bad habits and philosophy. I believe you would too.

    What I'm telling you is I'm glad you've decided to check out other schools because it will help you improve greatly, and also pull the shudders back from your eyes which will allow you to see that you were very naive to think that you'll be fine against the average guy.

    I also recommend Ronin in Ottawa. They have very good instructors and fighters to help push you forward.

    Gentlemen please, we all know that a sled team would take at least 3-4 days to make that journey. Plus you could be delayed by a spring snow storm which could make the high mountain pass between Ottawa and Hamilton almost impossible. Sheesh!

    Now, back on topic:

    Flawed thinking in FSD lesson #3:

    This almost borders on the obscene stupidity encompassed in the statement:

    I'm hunting wabbits!

    They're more like Hitler comitting systematic genocide and not even saying sorry.

    Which state is Canada in? South Dakota? One of those "square states?"

    Not to pick on you but this comment scares the hell out of me. This is an ideology placed into your thought pattern by sJP and his clowns. I have spoken out against this for years in MA and will continue to voice my opinion regarding this.

    The odds of you defending your family or person against an 'average guy' is slim to none. Fact is most guys who are 'average' at street fighting aren't going to attack you. Sure from time to time you might be in a situation where the defense against the dumb drunk guy punch will work, but this is by far and away the rarity.

    I have bounced for over 10 years and done security for events and some small event more person orientated work. The 'average' guy that I dealt with was not someone who was clueless in a fight, quite the opposite. You ask for examples of why FSD won't work? Well if these videos are indicative of the style of fighting you've been learning then I'm sorry to break it to you but you wouldn't last past the opening punches in a fight.

    In a planned assault the odds of you dealing with a mugger or assailant who makes a living doing this are very high. Just like you become very good at your job with some experience and training, so do these guys.

    Street fights are like car wrecks, you don't know when they're going to happen and you get very little warning. The concept that sJP is pushing where by two men square off and exchange words is fiction and more suited to shitty MA films like Kung Fu Love!

    How do I know what I do works? Because I have used it and it has saved me from serious injury. Simple.

    Just like the first guy to test drive a bike is the guy who did the breaks, sJP should stop hanging out in men's rooms looking for fights and start hoping that they never are in a real fight.

    I felt you were a mouthpiece and asking questions for someone else.

    See, Shadow posts are very similar to Gerry Mansfield. Asking questions, cordial, apologetic, then boom they go nuts. You are much milder but, then you made the crack about USA and Vietnam. This is why I thought you were a mouthpiece.

    Look you and a few others deal with negativity bad and lash out. If you look at the people that started/continued discussion on this thread, they are all from Canada.

    edit: hmm, i just looked at it again, thing is i dont wanna post any info from it, like start date, etc, sounds stupid, but i think a few people watch this thread from fsd, and i really dont need anymore problems, thats all i need, them calling me talking about this thread..

    thereis not much info on it anyway, my start date, payment plan, etc.

    but i still prefer not to post it public, i know, i sound like a sissy, lol
    Are you suggesting it would be to taxing on the FSD brain trust's detective skills to figure out which English speaking only 26 year old 6'6" 270 lb student that left during the one month trial period you were? "Cuz it is not nice to say things like that about other people.

    Anyway yeah, good question I'll bet back to you.

    Maybe I am a mouth piece I sure can take a question and run with it! (Hail Satan):XXhesitan
    Methinks you would garner greater credibility if you ceased the pathetic histrionic appeals to pity.

    As a brief skim of this lengthly thread demonstrates, there have been a few "sock puppets" of instructors and students. Thus, the concern that you are not what you say you are is understandable.

    I, for one, could care less. I judge posters by their posts and have little interest in "sock-hunts." Fools reveal themselves as such in time.

    There actually have been recommendations pepper'd through this Epic; however, you may wish to consider the Tried and True Method--goeth thou to Newbie Town and post the following:
    • 1. Greetings!
      2. I am a former FSD'er who wants to find a good school in ______
      3. My interests in MA are:
      • A. Basic Self-Defense
        B. A Good Work-Out
        C. TO KILL YOU!! KILL YOU ALL!!!
        D. Pick up chicks.
        E. Explore grappling
        F. Learn t3h d3adly
        G. Start my own cult
        H. Learn a striking-art


    Et cetera. Posters are actually very helpful. When I have more time, I might, for example, like to formally study t3h d34dly grappling arts; I will certainly PM/Post such requests for recommendations.

    Then enjoy the rest of the site. Reasonable posters are treated reasonably. I am not "blaming you" for some to the "triffle on the harsh side of 'strict'" responses you received; I am just reminding you of the sensitivity posters on THIS thread have to the subject. Also understand why they would want it "devoted" to the subject of FSD.
