    No you didn't

    Seriously, I mean it. The above statement is a flat out lie

    I don't visit MAP much these days, as I have other irons in the fire, but someone suggested I look in...I will deal with them later of course.

    I am not even going to try and candy coat this - you literally have no clue. Either conceptually or physically.

    Your techniques are abysmal, your ideas half-baked, and your inability to actually perceive how much you do not know would be admirable were you not shilling some of the worst performances this side of Choriok.

    Under normal circumstances I would flag troll, but you have uploaded lots of *ahem* "content" and played WAY too long a game to not be taking yourself seriously.

    Stop what you are doing and actually go train - take that enthusiasm and channel into learning something...it's not too late

    No, no you would not have knocked him out. No offense, but I have seen your videos. You need power generation to knock someone out. Frankly, you don't know the basics of power generation. That won't show in a no contact match.

    Likewise, you don't know he didn't step back enough to avoid your kick to his groin. Because it was a no contact match. Evasion like this is a valid technique.

    I would recommend you find a place to put this energy into training. I suspect this will fall on deaf ears though.

    I can't take you seriously after looking at your profile pic, your name, and your slogan "Cry HAVOC and let slip the Dogs of War." You're in the wrong forum. Why don't you go (personal insult that was not family friendly deleted)?

    Karate will get you killed because it promotes the fantasy you'll have time to take deep breaths and warm up before getting in a Karate stance to fight your opponent. It conditions you to assume you're going to be in an unarmed fight. If it teaches how to defend against multiple opponents, it's a choreographed dance.

    If the "power generation" you're talking about is sinking a fantasy chi power down your beer gut, i don't need your hocus-pocus theatrics.

    Oh no....someone with rapier like subtlety has chosen to launch a scurrilous attack upon my good name....how ever will I cope?

    I need not get into a resume comparing competition with anyone...I'm a bit past that. ...but it's interesting you focus on (weak) insults because you have no actual riposte beyond that

    Let's be honest here...you have neither the skill, training or experience to be offering advice on anything, so it's unsurprising you would be responding in that way.

    What I DO find surprising is how little you seem to understand your targets....most people who are pretending to offer self-protection advice tend to pay lip service to situational awareness and not going in blindly....you maybe want to ponder on that before the next response.

    Mod note: Thread re-opened for now....................

    Also, (especially for when someone comes off the naughty step.) Further personal insults & agenda trolling will result in more moderator actions than have already been taken.

    The closest I’ve got to his level is doing a course with Ron Christopher , and more recently Eugine Codrington , both left me speechless.

    Awareness, mindset, technique pretty much sums up Karate. As far as weapons, a human being is the greatest living weapon on Earth in most environments, except maybe space and the deepest sea. A human who trains Karate is even more dangerous.

    I can see you were banned before we even began, but I'm summarize with this: I disagree with practically everything you said about Karate.
