    Ron Chapel sez, "Knock Yourself out, kids!"

    Or he might as well be saying it here:

    http://www.martialtalk.com/forum/sho...4&postcount=67

    Part of this thread:

    http://www.martialtalk.com/forum/sho...d=1#post543052

    Where he's telling EPAK folks to keep their chins raised in stance.

    Now I've had issues with Chapel before, be it from his insistence that he learned Sekrit Kenpo, or that he uses physics parlour tricks like this:

    http://ikenpo.com/structural_integrity.mov

    . . . but I figured that serious harm couldn't result from it. But this -- this is actually dangerous advice.

    I know there have been threads of Chapel before, but I think this is distinct from them.

    You know, you guys really make me ashamed to say I teach Ke?po...is this a Bullshido conspiracy to make my life miserable?





    edit* worst part is, he's not the first guy I've heard say that....I swear I think my entire article back there could have been summed up in 3 words...ideology over reality.

    You didn't knock yourself out hard enough, try it again.

    Just ignore him.

    Anyway, he's back in that thread, holding court on T3h str33t and how it's only the rules that make you tuck your chin, instead of the desire not to get knocked out, hit in the throat or choked.

    Incidentally, this is his SL-4 in action -- for T3h str33t.

    Again, it's dangerous advice to be handing out to folks. That';s why I brought it up.

They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past and that besides, they have already won

    there is only one solution, someone needs to punch him in the face. He did ask for someone to help demonstrate the principle. I assued he ment he wants someone to come punch him in the face.

    Wow!

    What as that? An Aikidoesque "Grab my collar!"?
