    BEHOLD: Erle Montague


    Erle Montaigue


    Now I used the search function and theres only a little bit of info about Erle Montague. Its Mostly written pre youtube days - and since then, Erle, or one of his students, or somebody, has been busily putting up material on youtube for all the world to see.

    Oh, and he calls himself 'Montaigue' but I reckon he had his name changed to make it more like Tai chi.

    Behold:

    The things I love about Erle:
    His students all have long hair and look like hippies
    He spends ages talking, and his students lose concentration, thats when Erle Attacks!
    He kind of gets really big and grows a santa beard in some videos and then he gets skinny again (seriously theres like a hundred videos of this guy on youtube watch the evolution of the hair/beard/gut).

    "toe to the neck" .

    Plus he gets out of breath just talking and waving his arms about. Against a grappler is my favourite! Thanks for reminding me about this douche.

    Random story: He offered to fight the Gracie family. Renzo was in Australia on seminars. He called him up and offered to fight Erle under certain safe conditions, for his safety. Erle said "No, I'm not interested in your puny sport fighting. It's a fight to the death with no rules, or nothing." Renzo said "No rules? No problem." Of course, Mr. Montague slimed his way out of it.

    I think that's how it goes, anyway.

      Every time I think how much the Gracies sound like arseholes I have to remind myself how many times they've had to hear this mantra in their lifetimes.

        The 'against a grappler' video is fantastic. Toe in the neck!

        I just love how he keeps talking and talking in his demonstrations, then he demonstrates a half baked move. Its fantastic. He never spars for a full minute or anything, its always 3 seconds of waving his arms around and then he's back to talking. I think hes talking to reinforce himself more than anyone else.

        If you actually listen to what he says in some videos, its simply rediculous.

        Like in the first video, he says there is a masculine way to wave your arms around, and a femine way. And it literally wouldn't work if they did it the wrong way around. In one of the techniques he demonstrates, he says males knee with the right leg, and females knee with the left leg! How bizarre!

        I love the gracie challenge lol.

        I've seen another video where he thinks he can knockout someones teeth using the blade of his fingers from the side (some sort of finger slash). Correct me if I'm wrong but sometimes a good whack directly to the teeth doesn't always knock teeth out, let alone the austin powers judo chop.

        In his Qi power demonstration of a punch, he suggests that you turn the hip away from the punch at the last moment, to generate more force... ?? how?

        He's a hippy from N.S.W australia I love it!

            I dunno he believes in alot of weird stuff. He claims to have practically invented dim mak!

            He because the first Westerner to introduce Dim-Mak to the Western World with his books from the early 80's and also DVD productions. Prior to Erle's productions, there were only a couple of small and insignificant half heated books written and published in China on Dim-Mak as not many ever received the real transmission. Even now, Erle's books on Dim-Mak are the ruler for all others and all other books on Dim-Mak have taken from Erle's work. Many so-called masters say that they knew it all along, but sales records show that they have all bought Erle's work. One extremely famous Chinese Master in the USA who wears the silk suite and Niki shoes recently bought Erle's MTG3 DVD on the Pauchui San-Sau form and then put out his own DVD title on that form. However, Erle, being Erle, has changed some things in the original form so that they work much better and sure enough, this master has re-created these changes in his own DVD titles. So we know positively that this person learnt from Erle Montaigue's DVD!
            Clearly he hasn't heard of CPR

                        Dear mr. Montague,

                        I was browsing on your website after i came across some interesting videos by your hand on youtube.
                        On the 'Photos' section i saw a picture of a woman called Sandra Montague, who is, i assume, your daughter.
                        Please dont be insulted by this but i think she's a stunning woman and i would love to get to know her.
                        I'm 28 years old, no criminal record,i have a part time job with fairly good carreer options, every now and then i get drunk, but who's perfect right?
                        Also i practise martial arts so we have things in common!

                        I hope you can smile at this unorthodox approach and you're not angry about my mail.
                        If Sandra would be interested to get to know me she can always mail me at this adress.

                        On your site i read you will be visiting Holland in 2008..guess what..i'm dutch!
                        So maybe we can meet then, who knows!
                        (Unless you're angry about this mail, then i'll stay away!)

                          At least you have better chance against his dim-mak, instead of shotgun. *picture of Erle chasing Lebell trying to dim-mak him*

                            So, are bad teeth and jagged, angular features considered a sign of great beauty to the Dutch? If so, would Mini Driver be considered the perfect woman if she only was more dirty and weather-beaten?

                              HA HA That's very Amusing i'd be careful though or he might send a Chi Blast all the way to Amsterdam.

                              Yean Im in London... travelling to wales would be a little ridiculous although i would like to learn some Chi Blast or Dim Mak techniques, always useful in the big city. lol
