wow.

the amazing thing is in the main photo he is doing the rubber guard wrong. all his opponent has to do is push down the left leg and step over into half guard with an underhook set to pass.

that guy is unreal in his arrogance.

First off, I'm a BIG fan of "Inside Kung-Fu" Magazine. In fact, it's the only martial arts magazine I read. I've pasted many of their awesome articles on grappling into my personal Jiu Jitsu Notebook over the years.

Truth be told though, when I saw they were interviewing Ari Bolden, I was a little hesitant. But let me say this now: He won me over... Great quotes, humble attitude & sick techniques made me a convert.

Sure some of the "haters" may mention that technically he is doing some of the techniques "wrong" --But that is the point!!!

You see, Ari is not gonna just "hand it to you on a silver platter", No. You need to EARN it; You need to test the techniques and learn for yourself what is the real stuff and what are the "red herrings" he is putting out there to throw-off people from other styles. If you're not willing to put in that work, you're not ready to learn the art.Period. --I get that now. (BTW, this was a very common practice in traditional Kung Fu. Perhaps that's why he chose to let Inside Kung Fu interview him...?)

Anyway, it looks like I was wrong about the guy being an untalented egomaniac with a clinically diagnosable personality disorder.

There seems to be quite a disparity in skill levels between Eddie Bravo's purple belts.

There have been quite a few legit bjj bb's here who have seen Ari rolling in his vids and say that he's at a beginner's level. However, he's a purple under Bravo. And I know there are quite few other Bravo purples who are legit badasses on the mat.

One question: Have YOU ever been selected to be interviewed by "Inside Kung Fu" Magazine...?

--That's what I thought!

***

All the "hate" on Ari is getting a little old guys.

Let's just admit that we were wrong about him and move on.

I want to read the letters page in the next issue, where kung fu folks take offense at the fact that "Inside Kung Fu", the world's finest kung fu related periodical, interviewed a guy who claims "Japanese jiu-jitsu (with an emphasis on ne waza)" is the ultimate martial art. Two words - mantis style. Though JJJ "with ne waza" is pretty badass.

Also, the Blevins reference above should be "Renzen and Rocky" Gracie, everyone knows they are the minds behind the main academy.

I suggest setting up an Ari vs. Blevins superfight. Ari's rubberguard vs Blevins' fetalguard...tough call. Get that friend of Ari's who was posting here on the line.

Good lord. Finally.

"Or maybe you are saying to yourself.." I am already in great shape." I can assure you that I have buried guys who say that in under 5 minutes of Training either on the mat or doing physical training."

BURIED GUYS! ARI BOLDEN IS A MURDERER!!!!!! I wonder if he killed them with his rubberguard and then buried 'em or if he just buries them alive?

God damn I hate that style of website e-book marketing garbage. Thank Allah that Ari is in it for the love of jujitsu and not for the quick bucks. I mean, look at how little he is charging:

"I know you are used to getting everything from me for free and you know my philosophy is all about over delivering to my members and customers, so after at least 5 meetings and another 30 emails I convinced these guys to create this unreal system to basically GIVE to you for only...$97...$57

$37"

JR - var so = new SWFObject("http://www.youtube.com/v/CqJsG8UeKKY&hl=en&fs=1", "postVideo-23715659-Flash", "425", "355", "9.0.28", "##000"); so.addParam("allowScriptAccess", "samedomain"); so.addParam("allowNetworking", "internal"); so.addParam("wmode", "transparent"); so.write("postVideo-23715659"); Okay I clicked on the link and read the article and looked at the pic's. 
I agreed with some stuff he says and other stuff I didn't.

The pisa sweep looks simular to what Xande is doing in the vid.  Ari just does it off mission control.   Other diffrences, is that Xande controls the arm to where he is sweeping too, he doesn't bother to under hook the leg, just grab the sleave of the pants and he places his foot down by his opponets foot to the side he is sweeping Other then that it looks simular.




Please don't mention Xande in the same sentence as Ari again.

thanks

"Other diffrences, is that Xande controls the arm to where he is sweeping too"

Which is exactly why it's wrong, imo.
