    Oh thank jesus! Now I know what has become of Don Issak after I lost track of him after July of 06. What can you tell us about his Kenpo hair?

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I also disagree that he "doesn't have a basic skillset." I think his form looks fine. It's not anything that would help much in alive-trained martial arts; but that doesn't mean he made it up last week in his basement or from watching Steven Seagal movies.
    He can't keep a fist while punching and leads his punches with his elbows to fake out a snap. That's no good.

    This stuff looks like standard dead-trained TMA. He says at the start that it is a drill in tai sabaki, so he would probably say that his uke missed him because he made a slight movement out of the way. It's silly and ineffective for fighting, but that doesn't make it Bullshido (if by Bullshido we mean deliberately deceptive / made up)- except for the title, which I agree is total nonsense.

    He has to be the worst fat out of shape karateka-type person I have seen this week

    This is PRIME RIB bullshido!
    "Dragon Boy" is slang for Empi/Wanshu.

    I don't know what the hell that Isaak guy was doing.

    Yes, not just Karate. I've seen pro-boxers do it to.

    Is that hissing noise he is making common in Karate?

    Or is that his own personal touch?
