I've had fairly good luck with Pekiti looking like pekiti under pressure, and non FMA-wise, the weapons work of ARMA also ends up looking exactly like the books when exchibited by high-level players.

The decrease in crime rate also accompanied countries that DON'T have our incarceration rate, but had similar demographic shifts in age of population at the same time, so I think attribution to incarceration rate of falling crime rates is a tad bit premature. In addition, most of our increased incarceration isn't of violent criminals- it's drug and property crimes. The notion that locking up a large segment of people who weren't violent to begin with, and then putting them in a rape box to be socialized with people who ARE violent, and then releasing them, is responsible for decreasing the amount of violence is I think suspect. 


(Most western industrialized nations had a downshift in the population size of adolescent and early adult males, particularly in lower-income families that don't have the free work hours to supervise their children for as many hours a day. Unsupervised youth provide the biggest spike in violence. No one did anything to cure the crime wave, the tide of teenagers generated by the boomers just got older and had children in a more spaced out pattern than their parents did)

a) Freddie Roach on GSP:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpkjn8Wufz8&feature=player_embedded

b) Machida vs. Jackson:  Hard to see how the judges came to that decision!

c) Last night on the TUF finale event, Joe Rogan had a riff on how bad decsions are getting  to start to thing that MMA is starting to get corrupt; he went on to say that it is because the Nevada Athletic Commission, which basically is boxing people, is putting clueless morons judging UFC fights.  I was surprised at how candid his comments were.

d) Exciting finale to the TUF event.  I really like that kid who won (name slips my mind at the moment) but he sure took too many strong hits in the first round.  IMHO shots like those have a cumulative effect.  He really needs to clean up his standing striking game.

Jonathan Brookins. You'd think he would have learned that lesson after fighting Jose Aldo(and doing suprising well before getting knocked out)

Lyoto almost ended the fight 4 times. Rampage was never close to doing so even once. I don't see giving him the decision off of one takedown and two uppercuts.

a) A snatch is from hanging to shoulder or overhead?

b) Are you saying you have 15 seconds to do 7 reps and then 15 seconds to rest?

the snatch is executed as selfcritical described, a swing back from the 3 pt postition to full overhead lockout (bell and shoulder in same line)

most folks start at 6, some at 7, it depends on the cadence test

yep, you work on a 15:15 work rest ratio for as many rounds as you can manage with good form while maintaining the cadence

and as selfcritical stipulates, you accelerate the bell on the down swing (it weighs up to 4 times more as you pull it out of the hole because of this, overspeed eccentric)

as to how long it took to work up to this

I am an RKC, so I had a good deal of proficiency in the snatch before I started, but it took about 3 mos total to hit the first 80 sets at 6 per, about 3 wks later it was 80 at 7, then about 1 mos later 80 at 8, I then continued on the protocol as it is designed to go for 36 sets of 20 on the 36:36 work rest ratio

I have also done this with single and double 16kg push press for 6/7/8 reps per

it can be brutal, but gratifying

the conditioning you get for the grip, legs, arms, shoulders and explosive power in the legs and the core stabilization work are all big hits in my book

lots of bang for your buck

did it in the rain again this weekend, and that is a whole other animal Wink

I've done the 15:15 twice. Usually takes me about 4 weeks. My issue is I went to this immediately after having done tons of HIIT work, and I really didn't have a very strong Aerobic base. I've cut back on this and am specifically working on cardiac output work for a while, and will get back to VWC as soon as I've lowered my RHR some more.

a) A snatch is from hanging to shoulder or overhead?

b) Are you saying you have 15 seconds to do 7 reps and then 15 seconds to rest?

A hardstyle kettlebell snatch is from fully loaded position (bell swung behind you) to fully locked out (the bell in the same position it would be at the top of a military press, where it must hang motionless for a moment). On the way down you will actively spike the weight so that it swings back into the "hike" position before repeating.

The cadence is based on dividing up your max snatches over a minute. It's basically dipping just above anerobic threshold and then recovering multiple times. It's an escalating volume protocol, so you would start with whatever percentage of 80 sets you can comfortably finish and then adding sets each session
9  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Conditioning on: June 14, 2010, 08:54:22 AM
just finished 80 sets of vo2 snatches with a 16kg bell at 7 reps per set on the 15:15 protocol

grip, hip drive, and lung capacity all get taxed
though, since I have done this protocol a few times now, 80 sets is not that big of a stretch any more
barely get out of breath, not bragging, just saying that you adapt to whatever you do and if you minimize the stress levels, you adapt faster

40 minutes tops, 15 sq feet of space with enough overhead room for the weight at full lock out, and a moderate weight  and you are in business

if anyone is interested in the protocol I can give you the basics pretty quickly

once a week has been my pattern lately, with as much stick work and knife action as I can fit into my schedule

How long did it take you to work up to that? Also, did you get any HR measurements?

He's had some, but it's not like he's decimating the Dallas BJJ scene, which is kind of what you'd expect if everyone else is training wrong and he alone is doing things that don't hinder performance.

Ideas on "strafing" with the zirconia.

In the event of wanting to get back out upon completing a zirconia combo ("false jab" to cross or hook, perhaps finishing with a lead hook while drifting to the side), what method of restablishing range has worked best for you and students in sparring? My inclination is to think that a retreat along the back 45 degree angle of the triangle (toward my rear foot) would be sensible, but this might require onlya  little adjustment.

My understanding is the material is really meant to support a "crash" but, I've found myself thinking often "I'm considerably faster than this person, and they have clinch skills", so this is something I'm making an effort to play around with in a boxing environment. 
12  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Kali Tudo 4: The Dog Leg Game on: May 19, 2010, 01:03:21 PM
I think a good answer is because MMA guys can challenge you more EH. Practicing your empty hand responses against people who are really, really good at it has some positive effects on composure and attributes.

As far as I can  tell, it's an over-application of a test from z-health for determining if your CNS is showing signs of overtraining. A noteable weakness I think is that the approach doesn't really address any kind of metabolic/energy system work.
16  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: March 23, 2010, 02:44:03 PM
In particular, you'll note that those weren't Greco throws that Jones used to toss the olympic-caliber vera.

And Jones doesn't have a judo coach.

He watched some videos on judo, and went to some public classes at cornell.

And then just did it.

Yes, although I was more impressed with his "Single leg to spinning elbow" in the Bonnar fight.
18  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: December 09, 2009, 12:26:39 AM
Before he got his MT coach, he was literally watching clips off of youtube and trying to pull them off(and succeeding) apparently one of those slips was from Ong Bak.
19  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: December 08, 2009, 08:19:47 PM
New idea- Conspire to put copies of the KT material in Jon Jones' christmas stocking. I'm highly amused by anyone who manages to pull off moves on pro fighters because they saw tony jaa do them in a movie.
20  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: DBMA DVD: "The Bolo Game" on: December 08, 2009, 08:16:49 PM
 Neat. I use this basic combination to break looping attackers in FMA and handhunters in ARMA, so the abilty to do something different strategically without seeming to do so is always handy.

24  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Knife for Self Defense on: August 09, 2009, 08:58:10 AM
Kind of fits my experience too. Everyone I know who was actually attacked with a knife came from an escalated arguement.  By contrast, when I was mugged with a knife i felt at no point like I was in danger. This is probably why I associate really violent knife attacks with "status-based" violence rather than pure predatory behavior.

Confirmed I'll be there with two locals.

In less good news, the austin pekiti group scheduled our anniversary/fight day the same day. I may make some sad puppy faces at the seminar.

I'd never really worked the Lead Uppercut out of unmatched lead before, at least not without engaging with the other limb. I was very suprised at how easily Mir worked it on Nog.
30  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: KALI TUDO (tm) Article on: July 11, 2009, 05:02:07 PM
This strikes me as a very versatile set of striking motions within the KT framework.
31  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: July 09, 2009, 10:09:35 AM
Josh is probably the best pure athlete other than GSP at welterweight, and the most decorated wrestler. It was a big deal when he went on TUF instead of trying out for the olympics.

Josh doesn't always demonstrate this, because he's started to get heavy hands, and only spends about %10 of his training on wrestling now. I believe that was a bit of a tactical error going into the GSP fight.
32  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Knife Law on: June 27, 2009, 09:28:49 AM
In many states it does.
33  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Knife Law on: June 26, 2009, 08:57:34 AM
I wouldn't begrudge a law that made it more difficult to carry a knife that is very easily palm-concealed. I just want a safe tool I can open with one hand that sufficiently obvious that I'll have a hard time walking up to someone when it's in my hand. I've never had my hands on an actual switchblade, so I don't know if this is a valid concern.

I wouldn't freak out if they banned the import of those crazy indonesian finger-knives either(where you hold the ball in your palm and the blade traces along your index finger). I could be persuaded otherwise, most likely.
34  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Knife Law on: June 25, 2009, 05:07:39 PM
Ah, you found some text that I had not. My perception of this is that someone who's not very familiar with knives thinks he(or she or they) are closing a loophole. I believe they're incorrect, of course.
35  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Knife Law on: June 23, 2009, 05:00:08 PM
There was very little linked in the original article- although the writer states that all one-handed folders would be banned, about an hour of tooling around through the Customs pubically available information only yielded to me that

a) spring-assist would be effected
b) this would only effect import and not carry

The writer may have materials I am not privy to, but neither I nor any friends were able to find them.

What's hilarious is that Tim broke what was apparently a "gentleman's agreement" that he wouldn't kick etc, but when he decided to start cheating, didn't have the sense to try for a takedown instead.

Something similar to the "fight compass" dvd that Rodney King does or like the Atienza's, a some classifications and stratagies for fighters as above.

Will sex be a limiting factor here? The person i'm trying to convince to send in a resume is a NAGA champ, has Muay Thai fights against Kaitlin Young, and is an ARMA scholar- she will beat %99 of people in her weight class senseless, of either gender.
46  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Looking for fighters for stickfighting TV series on: November 11, 2008, 12:31:17 PM
Will there be a significant training component to the show? I know a few high-level WMA players, and while they don't have stick experience, are very handy with a variety of western weapons. The german material stresses commonality of motion as well, so given a short acclimation time I feel confident that an ARMA scholar or similar could perform under pressure here.
47  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Kali Fitness on DVD ? on: July 16, 2008, 09:12:33 PM
WTF! that's Roman, from the Houston pekiti group. So goddamn weird.

He's actually a very decent fighter, with excellent power and accuracy.
48  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: At UFC 83 in Montreal on: April 22, 2008, 11:50:56 PM

Anderson Silva, Minatauro, and Wand all train out of the same gym - Chute Boxe Academy. an academy that trains all those styles together.



None of these people train at Chute Boxe anymore, and Nog never did(he was on BTT, which was Chute Boxe's rival). Anderson Silva, Minotauro and Lyoto Machida all train at Black House now.

Wand trains in the states.
49  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Balintawak and Dog Brothers Martial Arts on: April 05, 2008, 05:32:16 PM
My experience is limited to Sentikiros(spelling?) players from close by, whom use a lot of Baintawak in their system. Most of what i've seen is less like "attacking" the incoming stick, and more like "cushioning" or "catching" the incoming attack by bracing it against ones body. The motions I see them use should be equally applicable with more aggressive footwork, in the style of a pekiti four-wall crashing motion(when I was working the balintawak drills in a seminar enviroment, i had to correct myself often, because my instinct in drills is always to try to close the gap).
50  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: MMA Thread on: April 05, 2008, 05:05:56 PM
Although his use was a little bit different than displayed in for example Kali Tudo(or most filipino empty hand stuff i've done) due to his different tools. Cung would often allow his opponent to get their lead foot outside of his and begin spiraling(what I would normally think of as a dominant angle for his opponent), but his use of sidekick as a stop-hit allowed him to invert the strategy at times.

Anderson Silva utilizes what I would consider a very similar understanding of angles, but with tools i'm more familiar with.
