Just got back from five days at the Akita Tactical HQ (a.k.a. Kevin Carr's house with our factory having taken over his two car garage) in Emunclaw WA. Awesome view of Mt Ranier from his back deck!

Lloyd de Jongh flew in from Warsaw, Poland (where he now lives) for the festivities. Very good times as Lloyd and I worked on our new system with Kevin (a former pro MMA fighter and a long time student of mine) chiming in.

We came up with a name for the system that pleases us greatly and a design concept for the logo which Kevin is busy reifying right now. When it is done, the name and logo will be revealed.

Really excited by what is happening here.

Lloyd's movements look like a very interesting combination of Dutch-Indo silat and Capoiera-style broken rhythm entry and intent-masking movements.  Can't wait to see what you two have come up with!

You've become quite the writer since I last frequented the forums so long ago.  Your other RR (Moth 2 Flame) is quite nice as well.

Kudos Marc!

R.I.P. Pendekar Paul de Thouars

Some of you may have heard me tell this story of a moment of satori for me:

I remember being in Pdkr Paul's Bukti Negara class at the IAMA around 1988.

"I need a volunteer! Marc, come up here!"
As I stood there he got nose to nose with me and said "Do something."

Two questions: 

- What did you do?

- What did he do to you?

I dunno about that.  I always found it quite special when a girl chose me to be her first.

I wonder if the 72 heavenly Muslim virgins get to choose if the departed one is their first.

If they don't get to choose, is it really heaven for them?  Does the departed care?

If they do get to choose and decide the departed is not worthy, was that suicide vest worth it?  That sounds like hell to me, to be forever rejected by 72 virgins...

And another link to another article on his page called Lies about knife fighting.

I think Marc M's views line up pretty well with Marc D's views as presented in the Die Less Often DVDs.

Good point about knowing your rights! 

The problem is that I have never seen a simple statement of what the police can and cannot do.  What are the criteria that must be met before they can they search me?  My car?  My home? 

What should I do if the officer is NOT meeting these criteria so as to protect my rights? And not get hurt/killed?

CWS, can you/would you help us out here?


I ran across this recently --

I'm not sure how current the info is, but it seems like a pretty good resource with respect to some of these questions.

Also every citizen should attmept to know their rights in this regards- tery frisk, terry stop, probable cause, reasonable doubt, legal knife size, dangerous weapons, curfews, felonious asault vs misdemeanors, etc. used to be a really good book about Terry frisks, searches incident to arrest, reasonable suspicion, probable cause, etc.  As several reviewers mention it probably needs updated with regards to the erosion of the 4th ammendment in the post-9/11 world.

On that topic,, provides an excellent summary of some of the non-terrorist-activity-related 4th ammendment implications of the Patriot Act.  Combine that with

(CWS note: his a$$ would have been grass if they would have found drugs, etc. Generally if they come across Item B in your house during the process of looking for item A pursuant to a search warrant, it is admissible as evidence.  There is a caveat related to size of item A being sought).

and you have the perfect weapon for politically-motivated character assasinations -- just keep secretly searching until you find something you can use.
