    Teach / Train to beat other styles?

    Who includes beating other styles as a part teaching and or training? I don't take this topic lightly and I believe in practicing what you preach. I've spent a lot of years training in different styles which gave me the opportunity to see a lot from the other side of the coin. The one thing that...

    Drop the Kata?

    The early Ken/mpo systems in Hawaii were measured against brawlers with way less technical skill than that is prevalent today. As early as the 1980's John Hackelmans Hawaiian Kempo dropped the kata and his is system is doing pretty well. But how do you "think" your Ken/mpo systems will fair in...

    More E-Training

    I've experimented with this concept but found it to be very expensive compared to the $7.50 a month (& $12.50 a month after I raised it trying to make it pay for itself) than what it was really worth on a small scale like I had. Recently, there were two schools (Cesar Gracie BJJ & Kosho Ryu)...

    Why would anyone issue "honory rank?"

    Why would anyone issue "honorary rank" to a "living, able bodied" martial art practitioner? To me it just dosen't make any sense. Either someone is worthy of rank or they are not. No "inbetween's." I think that if someone issues "honorary rank" and comes to regret it later. They deserve ALL...

    Western 10th Degrees. Fake or legit?

    It seems that all of the head of family sokeships are looked down upon by many. Some of the reasons were because of the improper usage of the word soke and other reasons were about bogus rank. It seemed to me that it was being implied that all 10th degrees in the west were bogas. Is that what...

    I heard of several Shaolin Kempo's. Ralph Castro, Fred Vilarri, Steve Demasco and Christopher Geary's and probably some more. Are they related or maybe just spinoffs of other systems? I tried the search function but it lead me to every thread that had Shaolin Kempo in it. Thanx.

    Is BJJ really ready for the Real World

    This one I've been thinking about a lot. Is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practical in real world situations? After a few years on the mat practicing BJJ and usually the "pure"BJJ'ers progressed faster than me (I think because I see things differantly than them). But in their "all around overall"...
