    More Troy nonsense. The first seven minutes is him just falling in love with the sound of his own voice and droning on as usual but at the seven minute mark they give a display of their "Matrix" style defense. Some time back I sarcastically referred to it as his "Matrix" defense as a joke but I didn't know that he literally compares it to the stuff from the movie. In fact he edits in a clip from one of the Matrix movies right in the middle of the drill (which is pure crap). One guy slaps the air a good six inches to a foot away from the "defender" who flails and parries. I guess that he can con the untrained with this kind of stuff because it makes a lot of noise and looks impressive to someone who doesn't know anything.

He has someone half heartedly and poorly demonstrating a Boxing, FMA, or grappling technique that they clearly do not competently grasp and then uses that as an example of why it's crap and won't work. It's the video equivalent of a straw man argument.







    Thank you for the update!

    OK, they apparently also use the Redman suit which I find funny as it is really outdated

    Yeah... the website has a store and it looks like it's yet another diploma mill except for giving away phony achievement awards that you pay for.

    Edit: oh holy shit, there's even a "collectible coin" scam in the store page.

    Look at the price tags on this crazy shit?

    And just how many people does this dipshit have to rip off to be able to afford a gym?

    This is like the 9th circle of of martial arts hell. It's so fucking phony... How do people keep falling for this stuff?

    I love when people claim to teach swat, LEO, corrections personnel. So some dude from (insert local LEO) shows up to some classes and all the sudden you are an expert teaching LEO. GTFOH

    Many of the videos on the RDT facebook page aren't on their youtube channel. I'm finding that the facebook videos are a goldmine of entertainment.

    Exhibit A

    https://www.facebook.com/RealityDefe...3627644463377/

    Here we have what they describe as two of their best (or is it worst?). Poor balance and footwork, over extending, not really trying to make any kind of contact as all of the strikes are well short of the mark. Keep in mind that the guy in the yellow shorts, Jeff, is Troy's senior student no less. A couple of times he actually tries to move his head to avoid strikes which is a bit of a surprise since this isn't something that I thought that they emphasized but unfortunately he looks like someone awkwardly trying to do a bad impression of former middleweight title holder James Toney. For some real laughs watch the video and just focus on what they're doing from the waist down to really see what I mean about the footwork.


    Exhibit B

    https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=343703799770360

    This is a good example of what I like to refer to as their "Matrix" style of defense where they think that they can effortless parry and block any and all types of strikes coming at them. When they're in the middle of the room there is another good example of poor footwork and balance as the guy in the black shirt turns and walks away which is a bad habit to get into even if, as in this case, he only appears to do it when the opponent is out of range. If the other guy was to simply rush him when he does this he would literally have no way to defend it.

    The highlight comes at the end where they replay the sequence of strikes and parries in slow motion which only makes it look that much worse. At full speed I could see someone who doesn't really know what they're looking at maybe being impressed by what they are showing. In slow motion you can clearly see that every incoming strike is well short or wide of the mark and then the guy with his back against the wall counters with some little tippy tap counter that's supposed to be impressive. I understand that Troy's trying to demonstrate some of the principles of what he teaches here so I wouldn't necessarily expect that the attacker is going to go 100% and legitimately try to take the other guys head off. But when you aren't even coming anywhere close to the actual target, even in sparring, it starts to look dangerously close to some of the Kung Fu and Kenpo clips that I've seen.

    We should be grateful. If it wasn't for all the Supreme Badasses on the internet who would lose a death match against two flights of stairs we'd have nothing to do.
    Gotta give a shout out to WSD Specialist Kristie Sharp though.
    She can demo the Furrious Five on my Redman anytime. Talk about gunz! You know she's got a mean Kung Fu Grip.

    The ball started rolling on this place back in 2007 on the "Reality Defense in Phoenix, AZ a McDojo?" thread which ran for a good seven years.

    https://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=54192

    I recently revived it because it came to my attention that they have been posting youtube videos that only served to confirm everything that I had been saying about them years ago. Troy actually made an appearance early on in that thread, went into a good rant about his prowess in ear removal techniques, and then quickly left in a huff when people here weren't buying into his pitch and hanging on his every word as his students do.

    Now I make sure to pass on the favour.
    A few years back i was asked to design a SD class for the boxing class ('cause they knew I was a total bad ass)

    thank to BS.net I said the best self defence is to get good at boxing,

    fair enough they said and the matter was never raised again

    also what is RDT?
