Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Good posts, guys! Doc, thanks for sharing that observation. Yes, you are very right. In the video below, probably the most valuable thing shown is the body language and pre-attack indicators from the bigger guy on the left. Oftentimes, when someone looks away, that’s a clear indication he’s about to...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

One thing I can say about criminal or wannabe criminal elements. The assumption that these people are untrained can be deadly. They probably have not been trained in any formal sense but believe me when I say, they will probably have at least some experience in fighting. Additionally, these people ...

Re: Covid-19 vaccination starting (UK)

I plan to get it when my opportunity comes around. That won’t be for a good while yet. Which is fine with me. Maybe by then they’ll have tweaked it to also cover all the mutant strains coming out. Also, hopefully by then the makers, distributors, and those giving out the vaccines will have their *bl...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Good point! Those people who have background in Martial Arts are more disciplined and balanced when it comes to self-defense. Hi! Even some people trained in “traditional” martial arts can fall into the trap of applying a sportsman’s mindset to a street situation. All ‘combat sports’ such as MMA, B...

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Escalating conflict, physical touching leads to knife response. I don’t know which country this occurred in. This video has no martial arts content in it; but it has a LOT to do with martial artists AND non-martial artists alike. It’s a lesson in the fact that instigating or willingly getting into f...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

TBH, I was never interested in the C-60 model until this thread. I remember back when it was in production, and I wasn’t interested at the time. I am assuming that any new version will be CQI’d, so we’ll wait and see. I’m definitely planning to get one, depending on what steel is used. If it’s SPY27...

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

I would like to know, too. I’ve never owned a SE knife in S30V, and would like to know how it holds up, compared to other steels in SE.

Re: Martial Arts Experiences Discussion Thread

Sifu Gaspar Garcia (1955 - 2018). Gaspar Garcia was my senior-most Kung Fu brother (classmate) under my Choy Lee Fut teacher, Sifu Frank Primicias. Mr. Garcia started Choy Lee Fut (CLF) under my sifu in Los Angeles in around 1970, and developed to a high level. He later moved to San Francisco and s...

Re: R.I.P. Larry King

RIP. IMO, Larry King was the greatest interviewer ever, at least on American TV. Yesterday, I saw an interview with Robert DeNiro about his thoughts on Larry King. DeNiro said he had been surprised that Larry King “had to die so early.” Dude, he was 87 years old, and had a history of serious health ...

Wow again! At this point, the question is less about which martial arts Dr. Snubnose has studied or been exposed to, and more about which ones hasn’t he studied! I’m very interested in the experiences Doc has to share! Much respect. Jim You should have seen his epic pocket dumps before. He has done...

Re: Questions To Ponder In Life

Why is abbreviate (to shorten) such a long word?

Why is a doctor’s office called a medical practice? Shouldn’t he/she already be an expert?

Re: John Lennon 40th Anniversary

Phil Spector died two days ago, reportedly of complications from Covid. I don’t think he deserves to have his own tribute thread. It’s ironic that we were just discussing him a few posts back in this thread, less than a month ago. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-55697979 Jim I've been doin...
