    He can't keep a fist while punching and leads his punches with his elbows to fake out a snap. That's no good.

      I agree with arrgghhh, except for the fact that he's tacitly claiming that his style is not only effective but battle-proven, which from what I can tell is a blatant lie.

      How the hell can you lead a punch with your elbow? Unless I know what you're talking about and just misunderstood you.

          - / -

          I make the distinction because I think there's a big difference between the Coda Scotts / Ashida Kims of the world, and people who are just really dedicated to martial arts that don't work.
          I disagree though I hear your points. I don't think he's as bad a case of deliberate fraud as the Coda's or Radford's either, but he's doing two general things which I think definately count as bullshido:

          1) Making claims (explicitly or implied) that are misleading. I.e. his students/customers aren't getting what he's telling them they are getting

          2) Painfuly crap content portrayed as effective.


          PS. Yes I do think most martial arts being trained today amounts to bullshido.

            Tthrust your arm forward with a serious bend, presenting the elbow first, and then swing it into a straight position. Karateka do it a lot because it makes the punch sound and look snappy, but, of course, it isn't actually a good punch.

                  You probably couldn't find good info on him cause it isn't sensei don isaak, it's shihan. if you go too www.aaafamilykarate.com you'll find a good bio on shihan don isaak. He was my instructor until he moved. I recognize the guy in the video too, that's sensei forrester (not sure if i spelled that right). But both know their stuff very well.

                    Oh boy oh boy oh boy we got a noob necroing a thread from 2007 to defend his piss poor teachers. Is it to much to hope he sticks around and digs the hole deeper?
