    I dare post another video.

    I myself would never go the route you are. Yet you've made "JKD" work. I don't see anything wrong with your style or form, other than as you yourself have noted. Practice. Like the whole commentary about the "hands ups" is silly. You know what you are doing.:cool:

    Why don't you care for Fred Villari?

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    Bruce Lee was of course an inspiration to me. An inspiration, not an idol. He once quoted the traditional karates as a "classical mess." IMO this is true. Yet it is an incomplete truth; therefore false as a principle truth. This BUKA you say have founded SKK, which I take it is some kenpo...

    Well, for one, I suspect the "realness" of some of the posters here. When I recount examples clearly specified by, most definately contained in the traditional karate curriculum of the 20th Century let's say, and comments come back as incredulous, well.... This is why I typically get along...

    Of course not, 'cause you're right you said so.:asshat:

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    People have overworking egos. It's prevalent in human nature, especially prevalent in social media. At my first TMA school, one of the assistant instructors told me one day that you aren't a bona fide karateka until you've had a bone broken. He continued to say that another karate school of...

    Well, I qualified my stance to differentiate the difference between sport methods, what you propose; and the traditional martial art method. You cite factually proven. I can cite TAM'rs who have different experience, including myself. So you say some "first" social psychology studies...

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    This is well written with wrong conclusion. It proposes an absolute without you providing your definition, description of TMA. What you proclaim is that there is quote- big chunks missing - then like all typical MMA proponents, conveniently drop the ball. Here's a buzzword; "evolution."...

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    Yeah, well since this is an internet blog, I only know you can type in intelligent sounding stuff; however, the giveaway is the slant of self made superior you. Just like the eighty-something Isshin Ryu 6th degree holding onto past glories. Top dog-itis.:shifty:

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    Silly, they (the instructors) challenged me. You're in the who can I beat up mindset / camp. The only thing one learns from sparring with higher-skilled instructors is what you should have know to begin with. You aren't good enough. Reminds me of the hard sparring pair during my intro stint @...

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    I've got more than a decade of training the TMA, primarily a fairly basic karate style adapted largely from Shotokan karate. Many thousands of hours of training. Two TMA I attend free @ my current dojo I was awarded a scholarship to train to black-belt free. My 1st TMA school shut down and...

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    Well, your answer is cute. I wondered what you'd do if I called your "mysticism" trump card. And extensive resume on paper doesn't a master make. As I recounted, there is always the desire to be the top dog. At the Isshin Ryu club, the eighty year old 6th degree was more interested in...

    Questions for those who started their own system/ style

    When I came to my current dojo, all my past rank and belts went out the window. They have that tradition that everyone with the org. begins as a white belt. Fine with me. The counterpoint is the professional respects other's accomplishments of that person. Which they didn't really recognize...
