Yeah RVC did actually fight, in full-contact tournaments overseas, in UFC and supposedly in the street as a NYC Transit cop. I'm just poking fun at the absurd hyperbole heaped on the martial arts back in the 70s.

I also had RVC's book back in the day. He was inspiring to us young karate men.

From my personal perspective (and I posted similar on the UG a while back) RVC was probably the best kung fu guy of his time. And yeas in the 1970s/early 80s he actually did fight in limited rules tournaments that allowed GROUNDWORK with strikes. In fact there is a video on Youtube of him trying the double ankle grab sweep in one of those overseas tournies (I think he got KTFO in one of them with kicks from a standing opponent while he was in guard or something like that) and wasn't afraid to put it on the line. A true martial artist ahead of his time, and personally I have no doubt he would have beaten Bruce in real fighting or in those tournies. Surprisingly, Bruce was around in the area at the time of the tournaments but conveniently ignored them.

Thanks for the Grapplers Toolbox. I had it on vhs and  walked funny for days due to the shin box drills. This one seems different than the one I had. I still practise Sonnon's InTuFlo. He had some great stuff.

This is the focus gloves series from the same Paulson series. It's MMA related drills. For anyone who hasn't seen it, it's very applicable today.

Haha yeah the Dragon definitely gets the credit. Gohlar was a great wrestler. He was with Sperry and Bustamante back in the day.

I'm not sure. The Gohlar I have looks self produced. I believe he had a stroke and was using the profits for medical needs. I can send it to you.

No, but the guy with the camera and demoing with Dan at 9:03 is actually my teacher, Mike Belzer.
