    Newb on the Board

    I have not posted much here recently, yet after reading this I must chime in. I too trained under Sensei Randy Wozin, from 80' to 86' I was ranked a 1st Kyu in O.K.K.A. in 84' yet I never was issued a rank of Sho Dan in certificate form but later he put a Black Belt on me after another colleague...

    Do A Full Background Check On Yourself

    I recently tried to run a background check on myself and right after I submitted it, I was contacted by men wearing black suits and raybans demanding to know "Who The Hell Are You Asking About Jimi?... Well? What Do You have To Say For Yourself? How Dare You Try To Pry Into The Life Of &...

    Blackdiamondcobra...Vin... It has been a little while since we corresponded here. The Film looks like great stuff man. It seems that I can not attend, nor can Jon, but he has told me that he has cooresponded with you about it. Although we clashed on topic a good while back about the vid on...

    Bouncers and Drunk people

    In my opinion, the 1st vid was an example of some ego bravado all around. The whole situation took way too long to settle/resolve. I noticed a star on the sidewalk, so I imagine it may have been in Hollywoods walk of fame district. Both the drunk and bouncers seemed to act up for show, even...

    Blocking vs. Evasion?

    My opinion is that some peoples perception of what is evasion tends to differ. Boxers do not only consider bobbing or weaving evasions, but stepping, turning and swaying are evasions. Not only does evasion understanding and practice differ from art to art , but from teacher to teacher. I have...

    The brawling roundhouse...

    I agree. Good boxing training and other arts as well will instill in a practioner with the sence of when, how & where a punch (attack) may be coming from. While as a teen I also trained w/ an Amateur Boxing Fed. Coach who was also a Black Belt in an Okinawan system of Karate & was friend w/...

    picking a bag

    Banana Bag, Banana Bag, Banana Bag, did I mention I like the BANANA BAG. lol. I have found that I have my preference for bags but a lot of it depends on your environment to suspend and area to train with-in. I have also found that sometimes you work with what you have access to, so look into...

    Filipino Panantukan?

    AriesKai, lol, my apologies for any percieved trolling or flaming issue you feel. Let me re-express my opinion if you will indulge me. I never questioned your yrs in or arts of study and their practicality. You asked about practicality/effectiveness of Panatukan based on your opinion of what I...

    Why not the KungFu Kid....

    I understand too, but american audiences would not recognize Wu Shu by name. Kung Fu Kid would be appropriate but I think producers wanted to cash in on the recognizability of the title KARATE KID. Thaty will get Moms to spend money on kids at movies alright. Love the fact they got Jackie, and...

    Filipino Panantukan?

    Many drills for skill and instruction are to profile the techniques for others to learn. Even the cleanest skills of a Pro Boxer will train & demo well, but the fight itself is a live animal that can get ugly as well as dangerous and we do not invite it into our demos for the sake of instruction...

    Black Belt--krabikrabong article

    I believe that thru Guro Dans Association w/ the TBA Ajarn Chai and his son training Krabi Krabong in the west, Dan has some position thru their group. I do not think anyone is saying that Dan rules all Krabi Krabong in the west. Maybe some miscommunication or second hand info. if that is...
