I will counter some things. As for Chris Parkers "research" on me, I posted my website, which includes my info, and the bullshido story. Nothing hidden here. My teachers are not famous, certainly not known to someone in australia. Judgements made about my art from a 7 sec video clip are not to be taken seriously. The bamboo staff video is demonstrating a blocking drill, not attacking techniques. I posted here to get feedback as to what could be better in the clips. Not to be told to find a new instructor. Really, is that the best that he could come up with? Geezer had some quality comments, which I will implement. If I were to go to Chris Parker "Ninja Master"'s level, I would alert people to his schools website that promises its students a "ninja membership card" and a "ninjutsu badge". Does that come with foam throwing stars? I know that as a lifetime member , asst administrator...., you have to defend your buddies, but, look at the facts here. I started a thread asking for comments on video clips, I didn't ask for someone from another continent to assess my art from a website, pictures or video clips. Doesn't really matter though. I got my answrs from a few good posters. The rest are either jealous, frustrated, bored or dissatisfied with themselves. Why else would you insult people for no reason? To make yourself feel better? When I look at a MA video, I try to see what I can learn from it. I don't knock the martial artist. My videos were a test to see how the quality of the iphone video looked on the website. What would you like to see a videop of?
