    "Quantum" Jujitsu? Huh? (video)

    I said to myelf, okay, this is jujitsu, maybe I'll see something interesting or entertaining. What I ended up seeing from this "quantum Jujitsu," however, was just confusing.

    Have a look.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXqzdlbSXhI

    For one reason or another, the whole thing reminded me of an Aikido demonstration (compliant attacker, overly complex movements, etc.). Is Sensei Jeremy Corbell (http://www.quantumjujitsu.com) just branching out to the young, acrobatics inclined market, or is this just complete crap? Or am I just unaware of the au batido movement in jujitsu?

    Ha ha I'm no expert on this kinda thing but I'd say hes been watching too many Jet Li or Tony Jaa movies. I'll admit it looks cool and I'm sure we'd all like to be able to do it to impress our mates but I can never see the real value of something like this in an actual fight or aggressive situation. Lets face it most trained fighters know not to risk high kicks in a real fight let alone to do a one armed hand stand so you can kick them in the back of the head :)
    I think the most important point is when u mention a compliant attacker. The guy with the black trainers that gets throw is so obviously throwing himself and the fake little pain "sell" at the end just screams WWE.

        I think these guys showed up at the Gracie event held at the Arnold Classic in Columbus in 2004 to compete. I don't know how they did though. I remember them because I recognize the patch. I think their system also had something to do with Yoga, but I could be mistaken.

          Yah, there's a page on "Warrior Yoga."

          From the page:
          WARRIOR YOGA is a powerful and dynamic healing exercise. Based on the PRINCIPLES and CONCEPTS of martial arts, this movement meditation is a complete healing arts discipline. WARRIOR YOGA is a physical therapy that focuses equally on balance, strength, and flexibility. Students progress naturally through rhythmically linked postures united with breath, bringing forth a heightened awareness. This potent form of movement meditation promotes purification and union between body, mind, and spirit.
          Warrior Yoga is not a typical fitness program; it was specifically designed and developed for martial artists. Although people of every lifestyle enjoy the benefits of WARRIOR YOGA, as martial artists we require a physical and mental wellness program that directly addresses our needs. This unique form of yoga combines the most powerful aspects of a typical yoga practice, with a motivational philosophy and instructional format that comes directly from the martial arts tradition.
          Riiiiiiight. I think enough's been said.:5arg:

              WTF? As a scientist (Chemist admitedly...) when I see something labled Quantum, I think of (a) Star Trek bullshite fantasy science or (b) boy someone really is trying to sucker some one in.

              Then again quantum MA basically would be the belt systems. You can't be a green belt AND a black belt (in the same style) thus they are quantised...

                  Some one should try that one on them and see if they even know what the hell Quantum is? Sorry it just irks me when some knuckle dragger uses a term to sound (a) Mystic (b) Scientific (when it is not) or (c) to make monies and fleece the stupid.:viking:

                    Well, I guess this could become the flashy "movie" aspect of grapping. I won't even lie, the flip kneebar was sick!

                      Also, has anyone actually either trained or sparred with any of these guys to see how good their "Quantum" Jujitsu really is compared to other forms of "jujitsu"?

                        Oh hell no this fool isn't using a real sword as part of this "test"!

                        http://www.quantumjujitsu.com/black_...st_justin.html

                        That can considered as big of a safety no-no as doing gun disarms with a real gun!

                          It's probably an iaito. Why would you need to learn to defend yourself against a sword, anyway?

                            Wait a minute. Finally, an example of someone NOT fucking around using a plastic sword, and you give him shit? Dangerous, yeah, but DUH. It's SUPPOSED to be risky! For fuck's sake.
