Thought I would throw out a video or two I took tonight of me and some students. Just a casual sort of freestyle session, where you attack anyway you like and respond anyway you like. Iím the old skinny guy in black. Iím still not up to par from the surgery yet, still a couple months away from that. But I try to still mix it up a little, I just told them not to hit me in the chestÖ Dam that would suck right now.Shocked

Excellent Phil!! Nice to see you so well & kicking ass in school.

This class is separate from the Marshall Security Combatives? I looked at that site last week. You are a busy man- explains the surgery, still not chilling out though as we can see by the tape.

What is the base art in the vids? Noticed the SPEAR alot for entries. Is it an amalgam?

Anyway, great vids & checkout your bad self, looking like a model for a male hair product.

Can I ask, why not invest in a breast plate? There is some good Krav related kit about, keep the stricture about the chest being off limits but I bet you get close calls, just saw a feew on tape.

Hope you are doing well this week. Take care.

Yes, separate classes, this was actually my Hapkido group. I know it doesn't look like Hapkido. Well... I separate joint locking mentality from street self defense. As I say all the time in class, My first choice is not a joint lock, it is to drop them. Then when they are unconscious, you can easily put them into any lock you wish. Very Happy So what we do is work street, then locking, and finish with street. Many of the people I work with are in professional positions where control and restraint is also what they need.

Much of that entry came from a ishinryu karate guy I trained with long ago, before spear was invented, we called it the wedge. When ever I tried to hit the guy, it felt like I was running into a wall. So it works and I adopted it into my own arsenal. Then later seen the (UK based) fence philosophy and was like cool. Always liked the term fence because it indicated that this is my line don't cross it. Then when you give it structure with the wedge analogy, bang you have a wonderful entry technique. Now you just back it with a mental philosophy of... How dare you fuck with my universe, now I must run your ass over with eclectic violence.

What a thorough response!

Never trained Hapkido & know little about it except that it is a post WWII joining of TKD & Aikido. Was it the first art you learnt?
I will have a scoot around the interweb & learn more. Did try to attend a class in another town once. Was a sod to get too so gave up the idea in the end & went back to wondering about, rather than, doing something again.

The entry is good. See it in a lot of arts now, krav as well, Good for blunt weapon response as they will follow the course of your arm down & away from the head.

I confess to being very thick so not getting the breast plate/reindeer related joke. Sorry, very,very sorry.

The reason I mention the chest protector is that one of our lot, Sean, has to wear one. Due to an unfortunate brain injury (he dropped a steam iron on his head....don't ask.) He had to be fitted with a pacemaker. Feels much more secure with it on. He is a solicitor in real life.

Nothing wrong with Grecian 2000, I'll be using it myself in .....thirty years Very Happy

Excellent Roadkill. Looking good for somebody recovering from surgery. I like your improvised responses, technically very similar to the way I 'work'.

I tell you something though, and it's not just your technique, but we all know a natural fighter when we see one.... and you most definitely are a fighter. Don't really know what it is I can see specifically, just an 'aura' I guess. But you got that spark, you know?

Good stuff.

We'll make that another pint for you. How many is that now? four? I'm gonna have to keep a little list by my computer.

Thanks for the kind words.

Iím at 13 weeks since surgery now and I feel pretty dam good. Doing things I know Iím really not suppose to yet, but I know it will make me stronger faster. Besides, Iím a stubborn S.O.B.

Blackops: Hapkido is an interesting art that focuses on joint locks and weight distribution and I really enjoy training in it. Like all artsÖ it has its place, its pluses and minuses. It is not for everybody because there is pain involved and people generally donít like much pain.

Your students (and you, of course) have good body mechanics with their strikes. Are strikes worked a lot in the traditional Hapkido curriculum?

Ahhh there is the operative word "TRADITIONAL" what I teach is not traditional, in the sense of the word.

To answer your question, yes strikes and kicks, including jump spinning kicks are worked in the traditional Hapkido.

First I no longer do or teach anything spinning or jumping in Hapkido. No kicks above the waste. Street level philosophy... quarter second entry, must cause effect, you get one step and it's always forward, continue with eclectic violence until they drop.

I love the art of Hapkido, but it has it's place. I still teach the art but tell everyone... On the street I would rather thump them than put the into a joint lock. Once they are unconscious, you can put them into any lock you wish. Smile
