    "AL-KATA", the next essay about a book on martial arts found in the apartment of one of the 9/11 hijackers, is an essay on how you can't learn martial arts from books (OK), but also a treatise on why no one should fear a "radical raghead" (ugh) who learned from a book.

    He essentially makes it sound like if Allan Ondash got his hands on a 9/11 hijacker, he'd work them over. I have a feeling Allan Ondash would end up headless, instead. Stay tuned, this essay is one of the shorter ones (1 page).
    I'd say if someone got a decent book on say, MMA, and actually trained simple stuff, and got even somewhat proficient, they would have a definite advantage over an untrained soccer mom (or dad) on an airplane.

    Whether or not Ondash would be able to handle himself well and prevail or not, we will 99.99999999999999% never know, just like the rest of us who do not work in LE, military, etc.

    The fact he obsesses over it is pretty telling.

    I've been asleep.

    Next up, "Al-Kata", the 9/11 Connection, and "Unfair Witness", a diatribe about "the undeniable actuality.." that "modern martial systems are not only unsound, but they are also based on the conclusions of unfair witnesses".

    I think by unfair witness, he means "BJJ wins again".
