Fixed.

Also, this is my favourite thing today. In particular the long toenail paper tear kick and subsequent puff on cigarette.

In other news, IJF changed the Judo rules even more.

Thank you.

I am apparently incompetent at imbedding today.

I am envious that they get to train in Castle Wolfenstein, and then decide to do THAT!

What did they do now? I thought they would have been happy taking moroto gari away.

I really do think the IJF and FILA are in a contest to see who can fuck their respective sports up more.

Not only is the IJF unwilling to try to take advantage of the growing popularity of MMA and sub-grappling, they are doing everything in their power to try to marginalize themselves. You would think the IJF would be paying Rhonda Rousey to walk out in a gi. Instead they make sure judoka will be more vulnerable to wrestling.

^the most disturbing face I could come up with (it’s expressionism).

let me say at least this:
Even in a bizzaroverse where this would be the most effective close combat style, I’d refuse to learn it.
But at least you can become 78th degree blackbelt grandmaster in a few minutes.

…hey, this is fun!

At least in this sport, retards are on an equal footing.

Finally, a style that you can use while suffering from an epileptic seizure.

Even if they scam a seminar out of you, you can rest assured: life will never be this silly again

So Monty Python finally came up a sequel to their self-defense sketch?

p.s. care to explain the new judo rules?

Yeah… yeah, for once that pretty much described my reaction to that video.

here is a link to the new rules PDF

http://lexfridman.com/blogs/training/files/2012/12/new-ijf-judo-rules-for-2013-through-2016.pdf

same site this guy has a layman explanation

http://lexfridman.com/blogs/training/2012/12/10/new-2013-judo-rules/

actually aside from the hand fighting - they are not that bad.

the last time they changed I think early 2009 was so Fucked up

This quote from the above was great.

The Rhadi Ferguson rule: It sometimes feels like the IJF has a special committee on how to best annoy one of Americaâ??s most outspoken judoka, Dr. Rhadi Ferguson. Four years ago, the IJF banned his bread-and-butter throw morote gari. This time the IJF is penalizing the breaking of your opponentâ??s grip with two hands. This further reduces the grip fighting game, and in my opinion will make fighters more cautious in engaging and not less

What, you act like double legs are an essential part of grappling. Almost like never having to deal with them would completely handicap a fighter who ever wanted to compete in no-gi or mma. It would be awesome if in 10 years judoka are getting taken down by BJJ guys because of single and double legs.

Agree about FILA. I didn’t know you and FightinIrish trained together.

Also,

I think you guys are just jealous of the PAPER TEARING power in the first video.

You gotta admit, those guys have pretty quick hands for fat/old guys.

slapslapslapslapslap

Reminds me of the “52 Block” BS that was going around. But without the jacked ex cons to lend it street cred.

BWAHAHAHAHA!!

I needed a good laugh.

But damn, I’ll be weary of those quick hands. The kid on the punchball was quite impressive though.

With “52” I tended to see some boxing with way too much bullshit over brains in the mix. I cannot figure out what got warped and/or diluted to get what we see in the video.

With a lot of things I can at least figure out a “this is where you went off the rails” point. That was just a soup sandwich.

Each and everyone of the people in those videos would beat me senseless because I can’t fight when I’m laughing my ass off. Wait…that’s how this is effective! Maybe I could get away if I had some sheets of paper I could throw in the air and they would go for them. Laminated sheets of paper. :slight_smile:

Anyone with a proper teep or back kick would turn their liver to mush.

Actually, there’s quite a bit of logic behind all this, just no rationale.

The “chain-seizures” move is kind of a one-key-fits-all solution (the other insane stuff complements this approach).
Go to a german Wing Tsun club and they’ll preach about their “universal solution” which is not that different.
When I was doing TKD and Hapkido, I had a mock sparring with a gungfu guy who showed me his superior leopard fist, consisting of a similar chain-punch move.
Or better: he explained how in a really real fight, he’d catch me every time.
The idea is that you can block/trap, enter and overwhelm with one fluid maneuver.
In theory, that is a beautiful idea, because the majority of your practise can go into perfecting just a single technique.

Now, in the real world…
(don’t get me started, I have things to do today)

Don’t get me wrong, I support having at least some tools that work with a minimum of assessment/diagnosis. I just can’t see any of that working for “A” situation, much less many.

I am hoping the Wing Tsun guys at least had something better to use.

But that was…I mean those “strikes” really don’t seem like they would solve ANY of the problems I am concerned with.

If you punch…I will ineffectually slap you.

If you kick…I will ineffectually slap you.

etc.

Fuck, I can be that shitty without even practicing in a castle. I may need to some training to be able to smoke a cigarette though…

I am not sure you would need it to be “proper”.

Everything about this “style” reeks of inefficient mechanics. That arbitrary shin kick thing they do to the bag is a perfect example. It’s like they’re assuming that simply touching the opponent is the overwhelming goal of a martial art. In that regard they get points, hundreds and hundreds of hopeless, slappy points.

If they named the style it would probably be something like, “Escaping Cave Full of Bees Style”.
