Thought you guys might enjoy this, if you have facebook. Video from the pub door camera as one of our Instructors, Ken Cooper, deals with an attack from an irate MMA fighter. Ken's a long-time martial artists with tons of experience working as a bouncer, but he's a recent convert to the Mendoza system. And he gets a chance to try it out in this clip. The belligerent fellow in white's friends had been warning Ken that he was going to get his ass kicked by the fellows "MMA/Kickboxing training." The language was a bit more rude than that, off course. Finally the guy steps up and swings a punch at Ken, who responds with the first riposte drill of Mendoza: Lean back, parry up with the left arm, return the blow with the arm. You can see the result in the video below. http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/video/video.php?v=10150161778335543&ref=mf Oddly enough, Ken had been questioning the body mechanics of the system the week before, wondering how practical the lean-back/strike combo would be, compared to modern boxing. Turns out...pretty practical. Thanks Mendoza, and thanks to the people sharing these manuals out!
