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. 


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.

Bruce who? Tegner?

my money would be on tegner in a battle of the fraud bruces. Their skill levels being roughly equal, the big man beats the tiny one 99/100

Alot of Sonnon's stuff I can't understand but he changed my view of wedgi g and the single collar tie in the clinch.

they're really well made tapes, i've never seen any bad material from Sonnon, some of his nomenclature has a bit of a edmund k parker pseudo-intellectual ring to it, which has hurt him, as it conjures images of obese, sweaty, mop topped kenpo "karateka" hopping about and swinging their arms in a flailing manner

Believe me, I know. I worked with him for years. Owe so much to him. He had some insecurity problems that he has since moved beyond.
