    Hi guys,

    Dont know if you've heard of this system before but it is a different approach to Filipino Boxing created by Antonio Faedda..

    Looks interesting, but Im not a big fan of the guard he is using. Leaves the torso waay to open, and practically renders one hand unusable in my opinion.

    I think you'll find it's originally a by product of JKD's Terry Barnett. Watch Terry who is his instructor and you can see a lot of Terry's trademarks all over the system.

    I know Terry very well and I seen it straight away. So for me it's not really different.

    Best regards

    Ok never met the guys so these are just a few thoughts.

    Some of that stuff would not be classed as reasonable force and why don't you just run if you have the other guy down? unless its mulitple attackers and in that case you are screwed as you are spending you time striking the guy on the floor when his mates are standing?

    That being said I know the place of drilling and playing manipulation of a persons body so in that sense it s good. Bit showy for getting your system across to non practitioners :)

    A lot of things on the art side of FMA go past reasonable force. Using swords. Chopping limbs off etc. But then a lot of things in many martial arts go past reasonable force but as long as you instil in your students that you have to cease when the confrontation stops that's reasonable and you also have to show you students that you can flow past just a couple of techniques just in case the confrontation escalates.

    Best regards

    As a matter of fact and looking back on it I can see a lot of GM Bob Breen in it too and he was teaching us all this very same thing back in the 80's and I still do a lot of similar stuff now. Don't get me wrong the guy looks sharp but it's not something new or different more a reinvention of the wheel.

    Best regards

    reasonable force? if attack any force is reasonable for as long as you stop him and prevent him from ever attacking you again! or is it the island heat talking? at any rate, "overkill" is part and parcel of the mentality.

    I have no problem with training every aspect and even working the overkill but I just don't think its a good advert for you and your system if thats the total sum of your video.

    I also think that instructors have a great responsibility and we should aim to stay within the law when possible.

    1. another reason for "overkill" is to get the mind ready to continuously attack and not stop at one hit. in real life many of the "one-hits" never reach the mark.

    2. agreed that instructors should stay within the laws when possible. the art they teach however may seem cruel and unforgiving because it is.
