Lots of jealousy,contempt for Concepts people by JFJKD crowd,re-marketing of the same material,his conga playing in knee high tube socks,training drills,and an ability to hand out certifications on-line,for a price...

Personally,though,I find his system fairly comprehensive,effective and easy to learn.A good addition to the Inosanto blend.

Let us not forget that he was one of the first JKD'ers to train BJJ and pretty well wrote the book on JKD mullets.Many have tried,most have failed to follow in his footsteps.Seems like a good guy to party with,if anything.

Does anyone have any interesting stories about Vunak's street experience?

I have always been interested in his history as a lot of people say he's a bad ass, but info about his fight history is pretty thin on the ground.

I don't doubt his rep, but it would be interesting to hear more.

He has quite a few war stories on his new 6 DVD set sold through his website. Or maybe its 8 DVD's?

Thanks to Bigsifu and llodymtz, I appreciate the info.

Joe, what was the point of that exactly? Don't see the reason for your sarcasm. Didn't appreciate the "fuck you" tone anyway.

As for asking "Vu" or "TC" the slight problem is that I am in Europe, and I don't know either man personally. Can you see how asking them anything might be a little tricky???

Seeing as this is a message board, where people come to discuss things, I don't see anything wrong with my question. Especially since this is a thread ABOUT Vunak.

Come to think of it, is is a bit silly really. Asking stuff about Vunak on a thread ABOUT Vunak.

Sir Drinks a lot .No bro, it's been a little running joke out on this forum for so many years. Folks want to know about Vu and his antics and no one really wants to talk about them. It gave VU kind of a black eye so to speak. So when anyone asked about Vu's personal stuff, the joke is "I know, but I'm not telling"

Sorry dude nothing personal or F**k you stuff. That all.


Trevor...He'daman fur sure....Great guy!!!!
