The site 24fightingchickens seems to have gone.

On the site all you get is:

1995-2004


I watch a bird fly toward heaven
I marvel at its beauty
I mourn my loss

-Rob Redmond

I never liked Rob Redmond, having clashed with him repeatedly on alt.martial-arts.karate.shotokan, but it's pity about the site. Anyone know why and whether it's permanent?

NowhereMan22000 I guess managing and maintaining the site got to be too big of a pain in the ass. At least that's the impression I got when I asked him. He says its permanent. From a TMA perspective, I think its a crying shame. IMNSHO, the dialog there could be some of the most cutting edge regarding karate. Once you strip away the transplanted karate customs (that often squelch inquisitiveness and innovation) you can get to some really valuable stuff. Mark

Yeah, I guess I let Rob's abrasive style get to me - I never looked at the forums on the site!

Rob has done this before, he'll be back. When you put as much work into something as he did on this site, you don't just give it up. It could be some legality on his "encounter" with Okazaki and the JKA folks.

There was some content of a diffamatory nature and he tried to clean it up and screwed the whole thing up. He then decides to scrap the whole thing. I think he just pulled everything off in preparation for a book. Didn't want anyone ripping off the material. A lot of it was his, but a lot was just common sense stuff that we have known and been doing for ages.
