    I did. He doesn't say anything there about traditional arts being all nonsense. You're putting words in his mouth.

    Not a single person in this thread has suggested in any way, shape, or form that only BJJ works. We've got a number of posts from you stating that BJJ doesn't work for self-defense but nothing from anybody saying that BJJ is the only answer.

    Elder is generally worth paying attention to. He's one of a few people in this thread with a longer, deeper martial arts resume than your own. He's also the person who provided a video clip with a partial answer to your question.

    Sorry we don't have any active Toshindo practitioners currently on the forum to answer your question in more depth. If that's all you want out of the thread, then it's probably best not to keep posting about how various other styles don't work, because you're likely to get posts from practitioners of those arts disagreeing.

    Who is Chris Friedman? (that's a JEOPARDY! joke, Chris.....)[​IMG]

    Thanks for the vote of confidence Tony-it means a lot coming from you.

    I recently read a study that linked abrasive attitude with assault on street corners.
    I mean, who knew?

    Please note, I never said that traditional arts were nonsense. I said that your notion that competitive MAs are somehow lacking the proficiency of traditional MAs is nonsense.

    OK. The guy you mention probably does not have much shot either way. And suggest he dosent get into street fights any time soon instead.

    So I vote with train him in whatever. (Can we do a dog brothers stick method?)

    Yeah. But you said the same thing about people using strange terms like arm drag and low single.

    Nope, I said I didn't know what they are. Haven't you got some research to do and an essay to write for Chris Parker? :D

    Well if you hadn't ignored people's posts you'd know the answer wouldn't you because someone has posted up about that.

    I don't think are any toshindo practitioners like people have said, but I can try to give you a Bujinkan answer as well as issues that may arise for the traditional and modern martial artist?

    Loved the Six Million Dollar Man as a kidz, but much preferred Monte Markham from the pilot.....he brought just the right pathos and empathy to Caidin's character.

    Never heard of Monte Markham, but I was a proud member of the Six Million Dollar Man Bionic Action Club in my youth and have the certificate to prove it. :)

    He actually acted in one of the series episodes, as an upgraded (and kinda psycho) "Seven Million Dollar Man"
