On another thread, the old sport vs. street thing came up. As I read the ads of various styles/instructors who teach anti-grappling or pure killing martial arts. I was curious why all of these intructors bother to list their past experiances in traditional martial arts. Black belt in this, survived thousands of real combat fights, blah blah blah. BUT THEN, after all this, they looked back and said, wow, I have spent hundreds of hours with the best teachers, traveled to the darkest reagions of Asia, climbed the highest mountains to meditate and slain men with my bare hands all over the world, but I did not know what I was doing until NOW. And, I have distilled all this into my new, easy system you can learn in three weeks. Yep, you don't have to do all the things I did to learn to fight. You don't have to spend hours in the gym, or on the cement/wooden floor with nails sticking out of it, run in the jungle, eat leeches to survive like I did, you just gotta buy these tapes or attend this seminar. I have done the work for you. Here are some testimonials of super men my system has created. Some of them are actually police officers and active MILITARY! Of course none of them has been able to counter my style. I have even been to (fill in the blank) and taught there! The point of all this is: Why is it only AFTER these pros/gurus have done all these things do they finally see the light of real combat? What kept them alive all those years as a spy, merc, SEAL if it was not what they had been taught or doing already? Why the new art, new name, new style?
