Will it embed if I link it from my iPhone? Not sure . . . . Anyway, here goes:

He still doesn't get it though. Ignoring that nobody pulls guard in a street fight, the knife thing is the only thing that's viable in his "defenses."

Unless you know how to defend it in the BJJ context, an active guard is not something you can just start grabbing eyes or fingers in. His base is going to be all types of challenged, his posture is going to get wrecked, and he's getting swept or submitted (or will be engaged trying to defend them) before he can work his "finger twists."

The whole problem with what he does is he's showing ineffective techniques and that's what people are calling him out on.

 

The only technique I saw that had any hope of working was the eye gouge.  Knife doesn't count that's the dumbest thing to introduce in a video for kenpo vs bjj.  I think he should try any of those techniques on a resisting blue belt +.  Hell even a decent white belt would be able to sweep him off his ass and stop his attacks.

 

The bottom line is he isn't qualified to teach ground based fighting and it showed in the video.  If he was qualified he would be telling you the dangers of lifting your knees or bringing your arm across someones body.

100% correct. He admitted that his comparison wasn't fair but he still doesn't see that his logic, save for his knife Kempo thing, is completely flawed. He has obviously never trained BJJ, nor has been in any tough street fights.
Nice guy but he's just real simple in his MA thinking. Phone Post 3.0

This is an old one, but John Marsh accepting this guy's challenge, no rules, etc. I want to say it was for at most $1000. But the TMA guy could eye gouge, etc...no rules.

Watch how it worked out for him. I didn't hear it on this version, but his arm pops at the end.

Like most TMAs, I don't really think American Kenpo is terribly effective, but one thing I'm certain of is that it looks pretty cool.

You should check out the "defense against a hand shake" videos that he does.

Damnit, back to the drawing board I go.

LMAO at him talking about BJJ is for sport, or for rules. Guys like this are a joke. I wish he would come in to a BJJ gym and try out his techniques.
