    Kungfools likes to place in his sig that he's the most feared man on Bullshido. I don't think so but it brings up a good question who is the most feared on the site?
    How can there be any doubt? (Chuckles)

    kungfoolss the post whore?

    Craig, however do you mean? What's wrong with responding to all those fabulous threads? I just hope nothing ever happens to them all, I'd like to contribute my views to each and every one of them daily here at the General Discussion section of Bullshido.

    But his theories aren't REALLY theories, they are unilateral declarations, Infernal fiat! Soon enough they will become ultimatums, as the Great One flexes his "scientific muscles" to ensure our ultimate damnation.

    The Unholy Kungfoollss' mission is to sow confusion and FearTM amongst all who aren't potential members of his ethnically cleansed Cracker Brigade, didn't you know?

    Having observed various forms of martial arts and other 'sport fighting," I was not impressed. I saw young children and middle-aged adults with black belts in karate that could not fight their way out of a paper bag. (But they did look good in their uniforms!). Sorry, not enough for me."

    Hey, he even stabs at MMA guys or "Sport fighting". Do they really have no shame, please tell me this is a April, May, June, July and August FOOL!

    Hi Fk my friend. Let me take your good questions one at a time.

    Let me preface my comments with a re-affirmation that I do not intend to demean scars in anyway, only tone down the retoric on it;s invincibility.

    As to Kung Fu, I am lightly experienced with it and only from the outside. I hold no Kung Fu rank. Some of the stuff does look like what a monkey Fu practicioner used in our Dallas Dojo over a period of time. It also emmulates some circle theory that Kung Fu utilizes by flowing a fake followed by a circled strike coming in after.

    Many of the individual moves on some of the tapes, as well as the update Cd's seem to me to be filler material, in that as you saw on the video blurb, it was unrealistic both from a attack initiation as well as a defense reaction.

    People simply do not attack from some of the unwieldy positions shown, and certainly not at that agreeable speed and follow up going with what the defender executes. Way to much o9f that on the tapes.

    Guys, I would be much more impressed if the attacks were brought up to speed and intensity, and let the defense motion work or not depending on the ability of the person using the technique.

    As with any of us or any of our arts, so many times it is the person who makes or breaks a seemingly ineffective technique.

    I concure with the money making comment about the addon's. I believe they were searching for moves to use to showcase cool looking muti-strike scenario's.

    The money question was a really hard one. Without being against what scars is trying to do at all, I would not recommend a beginner of say under three good hard years of training "differs depending on many obvious criteria" spend any of their personal money on the system at all.

    For someone who can pick out the workable from the 20+ tape plus cd's system, I would possibly pay 150 used for the whole thing. I believe you could get that much return in information.

    If you were really sold on the system, I would sign up and go to one of the onsight training sessions. At least you could see it first hand and decide what you could takaway with you to retain.

    I must admit that even though I will alow it for discussion of theory and application of certain claimed efficiencies within the system, I do feel that with a mid to high experienced combat

    Martial artist can defeat and even debunk much of what is shown. I base that comment on the compliant nature of the attacker's in the series.

    If you asked me to execute a series shown and you attacked and did not know what was coming, it may very well work at speed. The need is to find training situations where folks train at speed and all the hurt and soreness that go with that mindset.

    I am pretty surprised that KFss hasn't yet stolen posts from here and put them in his forum topic titled: "Martial arts idiots analyzing SCARS". Or better yet, drop in and post a short verbal jab with no actual counter argument, something along the line of: "Ah, the ignorance of you stylists never cease to amaze me (chuckle)".

    Any one here has had experience or xposure to the SCARS so called "Compression Fighting" yet? Supposedly, it's marketted as a system that will make a novice capable of defeating any skilled grappler in any arena. It was also mentioned that during a demonstration, they used this Compression Fighting to defeat and impressively counter an anonymous legendary Judo world champion.....

    DRD that was an interesting review.I'm curious though if the strike zones and what not you describe parallel those taught in kung-fu. I spent 6 years in CMA and learned many many different pressure points and strike zones that work a lot like you described. I'm also VERY curious after seeing the wacked out clip shown with the grappling package. I cannot see that EVER working on anyone with even rudimentary ground skills. So what I'm wondering is if you think that the original SCARS material might have a solid base, but that their add-ons for grappling and what not may be just a bunch of shit they threw in to make more money.

    You say that it most likely isnt worth $750 but in your opinion how much is this training likely to be worth to someone with experience? what about to a true beginner?

    I'm sure I'll have more questions soon. You seem to be the only straightforward person I know who has even SEEN this stuff.

    DRD's motives are worthy enough, but the Great Prophet Kungfoollss has progressed far past the point of needing any sort of "reason" or "proof" to accomplish his unholy mission. The Great One would never respond to a challenge or a even a polite offer such as DRD's from a mere "stylist" to prove what he is saying is true. Kungfoollss assigns truth, he doesn't prove it! The sooner we mere mortals get that concept, the sooner we feel the FearTM, the better we will understand the Autoreflexomalicious Chuckler himself...
