Dillman has always been cutting edge and controversial to anyone teaching the same old tired things that the GIís brought back from WW2. He teaches ďrealĒ Karate unlike all dojos Iíve ever visited in central NY and central Florida. These dojos donít even understand that there are no blocks in Kata among other elementary knowledge.
None really understood that Kata are memory systems that incorporate both grappling and striking techniques that are interchanged or couldnít show you real interpretations.
Iíve had the misfortune of having to defend myself thrice over the past 15 years using the Dillman theory to devastating results for my opponent. It is very real. Anything Dillman says you can pretty much take it as gospel. If something seems untrue you failed to understand what he is talking about. I have no doubt he is the greatest martial artist walking the earth. He is also a great person with a lot of charisma and fun to be around. He has set up his affiliated schools to draw feedback and coordination into the understanding of martial arts and has recorded them for future generations
to a very deep level.
To anyone that would put him down ďyou show your arrogance and ignoranceĒ In addition I would caution against spending money or time on any dojo that would denigrate Mr. Dillman and his theory. They simply donít know what they are talking about and donít want to appear as charlatans themselves. Go directly to Mr. Dillman if you have any questions as Iím am sure he would answer them for himself. Lee Abend

Mr Abend, thank you for your kind email your opinions have been noted.

Lane can we lock this thread now it died a long time ago, and is getting rather tedious!
