    What a black belt really is

    Ultimately a black belt is meaningless outside your own system. there are no fixed standards for black belt, there are no standard timescales for black belts to be earned, and earning a black belt in system A doesn't necessarily mean you're at the same level as someone with a black belt in...

    How do you tell a beginner not to resist techniques?

    Work with them yourself for a few moments and demonstrate that the techniques work. For the wrist lock, let them resist, but apply the technique slowly anyway. The fact that you can demonstrate controlled pain against a resisting opponent will be a much better lesson than telling them to not...

    And why would a self-proclaimed "grandmaster" need to ask?

    My very first reply to him (on another site) was as follows: For some reason he just doesn't want to give up the trolling.

    Intimidated? By you? No chance! I'm mocking you because your entire story is laughable, worthy of mockery and nothing more.

    Glad to see this is where it belongs in the Horror Stories section of the site. What a complete joke!

    It's also wrong, because thou/thee/thy are singular, so using it for a group of ruffians would be grammatically incorrect. Correct usage would have been "your" even in the era of thees and thous.

    Ogoshi vs. Koshi Garuma

    Just spotted this while perusing the forum, and I have to disagree. This won't be absolutely authoritative by any means, as my interpretation of these throws comes from my style of jujutsu as well as my research into translations and interpretations of the original Kodokan techniques...

    LOL, banned from MAP for trolling, so you flee to other sites to annoy them instead?

    When do the frauds come out?

    Oh no, both times he wussed out with some flimsy excuses. The challenge is actually false advertising, as he quite clearly won't honour it.

    Does he have the Magic Stick? (Dim Mak)

    Does he have the Magic Stick? (Dim Mak)

    This is the same guy who utterly failed to do even a light touch knock out on a small female reporter or any of an entire room of BJJ students. He's a con man, simple as that. Of course, he made up some stupid excuses for why he couldn't do his techniques, like they always do, such as...

    Shorinji Kan Jiu Jitsu

    The actual origins are somewhat hazy. The style comes from another group headed by Matt Komp in Australia, who supposedly learned jujutsu in Japan, though it is altogether possible that what he learned was the full Judo syllabus. There are supposedly links to Judo, Daito-ryu and Aikido, though...

    Shorinji Kan Jiu Jitsu

    It's a modern style of jujutsu imported to the UK from Australia a few years a go by Shihan Brian Graham (recently decreased). It's mostly standing throws and locks, but includes weapons defence, some degree of specific weapons use, multiple attackers, etc. I'm not sure how it's taught in...

    no touch knock out??

    Very true, they probably have more than just this, but this is their most (in)famous technique, and it is the one which will come back and bite them in the *** over and over again when it continues to fail under controlled circumstances) Hypnotic suggestion is nothingmore than convincing the...

    no touch knock out??

    Apologies. My issue is not that it's a bad technique, because usually bad techniques get weeded out by their lack of success. However, after so much testing and development, etc, they still can't knock out a skeptic and still make up what everyone must admit are very lame excuses as to why...

    no touch knock out??

    Come on ppko, it's hypnotic suggestion, nothing more. If you believe it will work, it will work, otherwise it won't. How many muggers do you think will believe it will work? Breaking boards at least demonstrates that you have some strength, all these stupid ki demonstrations show is that...

    Other discussion groups?

    MAP (martialartsplanet.com) has a fairly active jujutsu forum, though how much information and discussion you'll get about any specific style is slightly random depending on how many member on the site have trained in or heard of it ;)

    no touch knock out??

    Oh what a surprise, more excuses... Seriously, does the complete inability to knock down skeptics not strike even you as a little weird by this point ppko? As I summed up on MAP, these are the excuses that we've now heard from just 2 sources: If you don't believe, you can't be knocked...

    Style check - Manabi Masho

    Yeah, we just had a little visit from one of their assistant instructors on MAP... Wasn't exactly the best ambassador for a system you could have hoped for, and it seems that many of the claims that he made (including by association the WHFSC) were somewhat lacking in truth! ;)

    Possible Bomb attack in London

    Plenty of legal non-disruptive protesters, but also hundreds of them were attacking the police yesterday. I assume they are the ones Don wanted to punch, and I would add a kick in the nuts for every single one of them too after this. I hope they're ashamed of themselves.

    Possible Bomb attack in London

    I truly hope that Bin Laden is found and tried. Preferably in America, where he can be put to death for his multitude of warcrimes.

    My style

    Have you actually trained in a real martial art? That would be a good start, then you can try out your idea against people in a more controlled situation than a real fight and see how you do. I'd make sure you have insurance first though, as doing any of that in a real fight will probably get...

    sad but true... And this "dan" persona just goes even further towards showing that the general consensus was spot on.

    Mr. Calkins

    Well, that just made it easy for him to get the money (if any was offered anyway). He needs footage, but no-one WANTS to see it. In fact, he could probably make a fortune threatening to post non-existant footage of him wearing only a thong...

    Mr. Calkins

    As a high grade, your basics should be exceptionally well-honed, and this should show in your movement. What I saw didn't appear to be the movement of someone trained in such techniques for 3 good years, let alone 30-something. Sorry Bruce, but I really don't think those videos did you any...
