Just Got Criticism for blue-sky Thinking
That entire forum post is an exercise in fantasy and denial. It badly shows up the authors complete lack of any sense of reality in his martial training.
Fine for him but not ok if he is teaching this rubbish, we all get tarred with the same brush when his students see through it.
We live in the age of pressure testing, via ufc style competition or the influence in our clubs of reality-based defence systems.
People dont just believe because we say so anymore, they can read and watch and research and test.
And when you treat that forum post as a legitimate argument you call your own judgement into question.
I realise you are a fan of this guys work but if you want to teach valid self-defence to anybody, then this entire mode of thinking has to be abandoned.
Martial arts are not magic. Not even a little bit.
