    I didn't say you made it up. I said it sounded like an urban legend. :BangHead:

    And, if you are the one citing it you should be the one posting a link.

    This is the type of thing that gets added to the story in the telling and pushes it towards urban legend.

    I looked it up and could find NO reference to finding expelled cartridges in their hands. What I did read is that the first officer was shot by the passenger without even being able to fire. The second officer fired at the passenger and was shot by the driver. The 3rd and 4th officers drove saw neither the dead cops or the gunmen. They immediately came under fire. One passerby grabbed the shot gun and tried to fire it, but it was empty. He then grabbed an officer's handgun and fired hitting one of the gunmen. The gunmen then fled.

    The officers were relatively new to the job. The gunmen were military veterans.

    Changes were made in the way traffic stops were performed with an emphasis on safety.

    Now cite where the cops were found holding their brass.

    Usually, police use a gun. For the rest of us, we run. Most systems are not very effective against PCP dopers without doing something lethal or near-lethal.

    Not much, as long as there is a "Plan B" for when you don't get a reaction. Different people react differently to stimuli, including pain stimuli. If you're going to rely on a specific reaction to a technique, then you'd better make sure that the technique does not place you in a disadvantageous position if the technique is ineffective.

    Why is it such a bad thing to train to destroy vital targets to the body?
    Most systems don't train to destroy vital targets. To do so would require the use of something like a Red Man Suit. As far as I've seen, most training facilities do not have such equipment. If you train to "destroy" vital targets using semi-contact strikes or techniques, you will perform them in semi-contact fashion in a real fight. That is as good as useless. I've seen it happen; I've even experienced it myself.

    If you can train strikes or other techniques against vital targets in full-contact manner, then good. Otherwise, you probably shouldn't train them at all, lest you become over-reliant on them.

    ..."Well, I can kick to the groin if I have to, I just don't because we have rules. I could shove my finger in your eyeball socket, but I don't because were sparring." If you never train to fight that way, in real life you won't. Yeah, they are available to everyone, but if you don't train to use them, you simply won't. Because the reality is, you've trained to fight without them, and so they aren't available to you. Muscle memory means a lot in a fight. Because you simply don't have time to think. Everything has to be automatic. If you've trained with rules, that's what automatic, not the stuff that's going to end the fight quickly.
    You seem to have formed this opinion on the basis of little or no understanding of human reflexes or the techniques involved.

    When utilising an armbar or choke (probably the two most dominant disabling techniques in grappling arts), the user has full conscious control over the technique, because the techniques are executed slowly enough for a fighter to make a fully-conscious decision whether to continue or stop. Their decision to stop or continue the technique upon their opponent "tapping out" is not dependent on reflex or other neurological programming. Even when the fighter is accustomed to release their training partners upon "tapping out", the fighters behaviour in a fight is unaffected by their training customs

    When utilising a groin kick, eye poke, or other typical "destruction of vital targets" techniques, they rely on extremely fast, accurate execution, which is highly dependent on neurological programming. There is no time for a fighter to make conscious decisions about how much power or speed they use for these techniques. If the fighter has been trained to perform those techniques at half-speed or semi-contact power, then the fighter becomes very prone to executing those techniques at half-speed or semi-contact power in a real fight.

    So the "fight like you train" phenomenon doesn't really apply to premature releases upon tapping out, whereas it does apply to "destruction of vital body targets" techniques.

    Im not sure if it was the 60s or 70s but four California Highway Patrolmen

    were shot to death by 2 ex cons on a California Freeway .

    Now the cops outnumbered the bad guys and knew they were armed

    because a passerby saw these yokels with a gun and call it to CHP

    with their tags and a description.

    Fastforward . When they found the dead officers , guess what they found

    in their dead hands. The empty cartridges , remember this was before the

    semi auto 9mm or 40 Cal. became standard. I believed the Highway

    patrolmen were carrying .357s

    point being they were trained at their range to catch the expended

    cartridges in their hands . You know why ? because it was easier to police

    the brass , in other words clean up the range. .

    Now for you non gun folks . Those of us who have fired revolvers know

    even with speedloaders reloading is a bitch . This was before Speed

    loaders so loading was manual . Its a mother fucker in a combat situation

    to load like I said with speed loaders its a triple motherfucker to do it by

    hand and its motherfucking impossible to do it with your non gun hand full

    of expended shell casings . ergo after that the CHP training was revised .

    This thread needs to be revived! I joined bullshido from my research of TFT. I just watched the 1st 2 hours of the TFT strike program, the 2 instructors repeat over and over again the core principles of TFT. I am just as skeptical as the next guy in here. What I get is this,

    The maximum kinetic energy you can impose on a target is your body weight i.e. MASS X VELOCITY, which is going to be lesser than "musculatur". I am thinking about those guys who breaks bricks with fists and forehead. This concept of MASS>MUSCLE obviously do not apply to these brickbreakers martial artist.

    In defence however, their philosophy is such that in a teeth and nail fight to the death, when it has come down to that, you commit 100% to your attack. If your 100% is not enough, you die. But it is your best chance of survival. Defending yourself is not important because the person who can inflict an injury 1st is the one who survive. Even if you sustain a gorged eye, broken rib, etc, it does not matter if you incapacitate the attacker before he kills you. Of course nobody has 100% accuracy, if the attacker is faster and stronger and more skilled than you, no system and training will help you.

    Alot what he says is spot on ,

    You're a fucking retard. Please provide at least one documented case where a trained martial artist expertly disarms a gun-wielding attacker and gives the gun back, or admit you have no testicles and play with dolls.

    Two statements here confuse me.

Kenpo does. It's been around for a long time. I don't see anybody bringing it up on this thread as bullshit, why not?
    You are aware that "Kenpo" is just the japanese pronunciation of 拳法, (quanfa, lit. "fist method"), which is a catch all term for unarmed combat; much like you might have a 语法 (yufa, "speech-method", grammar) or a 做法 (zuofa, "doing method", or methodology of practice).
    What I'm trying to say is, no, "Kenpo" hasn't been around for a long time because "Kenpo" isn't a specific martial art; it's just another word for martial arts. Attributing any attributes (such as hitting certain targets to elicit a certain reaction) to "Kenpo" as though it were a single tradition is a misuse of that word.

    Now, this is interesting; so when you train a strangulation technique, do you make your partner pass out each and every time? When you practice a armlock, do you break your oppponent's arm each and every time?
