i disagree on alot of the points. i've known too many timid people. or those who would rather run or curl up into a ball than fight. but the concept that there are method to gain a lot of skill quickly is right.
I think this might work but only with a very small and very select population. It's a nicely written article but nowhere does he say exactly WHAT he did - instead it seems he's speaking in platitudes about training philosophies and divisions of perception.
Give me something solid to bite into - what did you teach her?
Maybe it could mean that she rocks at martial arts!!!!!
Ok, forget that comment and put it to one side for now.
So why isn't this guy the most famous SD instructor in the world? Why isn't he training champions? It's an anecdote. When we believed anecdotes, we though karate people could punch their fists into the ground or through armour (not true). We thought tkd people could kick a man from a horse (not true). When we believed anecdotes, we believed that guys with flying kicks were the best fighters - then when we actually put it to the test, we found the grapplers actually won the fights (I say this as a TKD guy). In short, don't believe anecdotes. Like doctors say about herbal remedies - if this was really to work, don't you think someone like Pfizer or Merck would be selling it? Don't return to the bad old days of heresay - demand fact and proof. If this guy wants to release a DVD and people review it then that is fine. I don't put much stock on a blog post containing a perhaps tall tale of a sketchily defined achievement.
I know this will come as a shocker to all of you, but I am skeptical.
If a style can be taught in 10 minutes, you would think that people would stop and say, WTF?!?!?
I don't know you seem to have doubts. I think you are going to sign up.
I am sorry but that is pure bullshido lol. She just picked up quick on the stuff he was showing her.
I wonder if she can shoot a chi ball now that would impress me.
She can, but if your tongue is touching the roof of your mouth or one of your toes is facing up, it won't work
LOL....I see what you did there
So true. Let me see what would happen if I put some candy in my mouth.
While sitting in your windowless van?
...while asking if someone will help you find your missing puppy...
Funny real funny.
Milk just came out of my nose.
We are ninja......we keep everything secret. So funny I totally get what he is talking about.
Yeah, yeah, dark clothes and cotton-soled shoes ... why did he write anything in the first place, if he's such a past-master of stealth?
Did I ever tell you about the time I taught the entire Yang style to a blind 98-year-old quadriplegic? In 3 minutes?
It's HAS to be true! I wrote about it on the 'Net!
Hehe... you said "yang"...
Thankfully I am far above such juvenile responses.
... besides, your mother is a hamster and your father smells of elderberries!
