Because of this, you will never find an old experienced guy in a fair fight.

If he's in one, it's unfair -- to his advantage -- and he knows it.
That's not fair at all.

That technique worked out well for Zimmerman.

h2h combat

I studied Okinawan Karate, Jujutsu under the Michael DePasquale system of Yoshitsune Jujutsu, JKD, Kempo and Black Tiger Kung Fu< well attended a few seminars, alot of ripping and tearing techniques ....(I hold no rank)

I moved on to Boxing< I found it much more realistic for my needs, Im not the greatest fighter in the world.. But Boxing prepared me for what its like to be in a truly violent situation, It helped me get in shape and get rid of the Social Anxiety of being in a fist fight, specially with cheering onlookers and jerks who get loud and obnoxious trying to intimidate you( bc their scared punks themselves).

I found everything is about your mind set, a defense mindset is gonna get you killed...You can study anything and if your mindset is wrong, the training will fail you..

I think a person should ask themselves if they are fight or flight>? If they are flight they need to seek more aggressive training instead of traditional MA based dealing with things more defensively...

Im now a strong advocate in the approach of simply taking your natural aggression (your fight and flight instincts) and honing it to the point of true (controlled chaos).

Just like the WW2 combatives like Defendu< A truly ruthless, godless approach to unarmed combat....Non nonsense Gutterfighting

Unfortunately, I know little about the world of "combatives" and Im sure there are planny of Mc Dojo's in "combatives" as in the traditional MA realm.


I have found a few schools of interest

1) Charlie Nelsons Self Defense system in Edison,NJ
Mr. Nelson has a direct linage to Fairburn under Sgt. Kelly and Colonel. A.J. Drexel Biddle ..you can check the website underneath

http://www.cnsds.com/about/charles-nelson

2) Mr. Lee Morrison's Urban Combatives< hes one of the baddest men i've ever seen....(also studied under Charlie Nelson)

Videos
http://www.urbancombatives.com/m_intro/about.htm


3) Keysi Fighting Method (from batman) rumored to be taught to the British SAS

4) Ex Navy SEAL Tim Larkin (target focus training)- He seems all about the money, Im sure. But I hear its pretty effective


In closing,

And though I'm no Olivier, if he fought Sugar Ray, he would say that the thing ain't the ring, it's the play. So, give me a stage where this bull here can rage, and though I can fight, I'd much rather recite. That's entertainment.

My take on it is this, JohnIll. There are many effective martial arts out there. I have not trained in any of them. Just because someone else is effective at teaching and doing the art they do, does not garuntee someone else taking those lessons will be that good. It all boils down to how many hours per day you spend training, practicing, studying, and perfecting your craft. And how good do you want to be? Is three days a week good enough? Four? How many weeks a year? Thirty nine? Fourty nine?

Secondly, there are a lot of teachers out there that are about the money, I have not trained with any of them.

Being about the money isn't all that bad. Afterall IF what they are teaching may someday save your life then you have to ask just how much is your life worth, and how bad do you want to learn what it is they have to offer.

Sure there may be somthing closer, and more within your budget that can be great as well, but if you find an instructor five states away that teaches what you want to learn, are you ready to pack up the wife and kids and move out there to work at a job and train with that person? Or go to college in that city to be with that instructor?

Your life should adapt and cater to the martial arts, not the other way around, that being the martial arts bending to suit your needs, and fit your perceptions.

As far as money goes, someone has to pay for the space, mat, rings, equipment, sports tape, insurance on the lease, electricity, parking lot re-striping, and so on if that stuff is used.

Anyways, just some food for thought!

Why won't you let those guys hold hands with you? You're all wearing skirts...

Seriously-kudos to your proficiency.

I don't knock aikido, I just prefer two pistols when I go out in public.

Sarski,


Advice taken, lol.


I noticed on your Public Profile it states 4th dan in Aikido...I studied Aikido alittle bit( a few classes), mostly Daito Ryu ( I consider it the Tai Chi of the Japanese MA)I attended a few classes with Rick Stickles 8th dan I believe. I met Yamada Sensei in NY at a Aikido seminar.

The one MA I would really like to learn is Shorinji Kempo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPW9i...eature=related

and Wolfes Combatives

My hearts with Bill Wolfes Comabtives (Modern Defendo)

Good luck with your training, whatever one you decide to do.

Carl Cestari is the man. His thoughts and ideas on unarmed combat are spot on. His Knife Defense Myth is 101% abso -freakin-lutely right on.
It speaks the truth.

I couldn't agree more, I believe there is no such thing as knife defense only knife survival..

Cestari is a very knowledgeable, a very serious man and I enjoyed watching is videos. Its unfortunate a man with his knowledge passed away...

I'm a huge Fan of WW2 combatives, Cestari's linage comes from Nelsons Self defense system and various books written by Fairbairn and Applegate...Mr. Cestari has a predecessor, Clint Sporman.

So far the real deals I've seen in WW2 combat is the Nelson system, Cestari's "gutterfighting", Wolfe's combatives and Urban Combatives by Lee Morrison of the United Kingdom..

Morrison also trained in the Nelson system... I wish I lived closer in NJ to train in Nelson's SD system and or under Clint Sporman...


Anyway, my favorite system is ... Drum roll.... Ape-shitzu

^ this video is hilarious and a perfect example of the elusive Ape-ShiTZU XD
