This demo looks dubious to me. Not in the sense that the student or instructor are deliberately trying to decieve anyone; rather, they are both "true beleivers" and behave accordingly. One sees this all the time in church services where the faithful are miraculously "healed."

Hard to tell. Ol' Roy is certainly not doing light-touch KO's there. He is whacking his demo partner pretty hard. I'm not sure who the bigger idiot is - Roy for doing those repeatedly, or his partner for allowing them to be done on him repeatedly.

I would NEVER allow someone to do that to me - EVER. Disgusting abuse, IMHO.

I think it is too much abuse for one session. The KOs are real enough. I know in my school for practice, we take pride in trying to get them as light as possible. These were not really light. I will be doing a KO later this morning and I hope to do at least one in France at the KI convention in 2 weeks. I would never hit anyone kind enough to do me the favor of being my uke, that hard. For a "standing" KO or even for an action KO in practice, uke is rarely really resisting.

Oh one more thing. I'm in a hurry here to get to the dojo but I can't leave this video without please reminding people to NOT strike necks unless you know what you are doing and unless you are well supervised. It doesn't take that much power to do a GB 20 KO if it is well set up. This guy was hit so hard, that an alignment was necessary and that done without a chiropractic assessment. It doesn't take a whole lot to give someone a permanent cervical spine injury. Respect your uke.

Hi Everyone,

Haven't been on the forum for a while and I was quite repulsed to see this video IMO the Instructor is an absolute idiot who obviously has no regard for his student's welfare I bet he doesn't let anyone practice the techniques on him like that!!! The guy is a muppet!!!!!!!!!!

James.

Thanks guys,

Your views match with my own. There is no duty of care shown for the student and the repeated strikes are just plain dangerous from a TCM point of view and a moral point of view!

Matt as I was watching that video that was going to be my exact comments. I said before that I don't agree with KO'ing for demostration purposes... I've can give you a jolt that will easily let you imagine the final outcome. Just my opinion on KO's in general.

My opinion on this specific clip is along the same lines as everyone else... utterly diagusting. What did continually hitting that guy out prove? All it proved that if you are hit hard on the neck you'll go out! SHOCK HORROR! So lessons learnt... if you stand there like a lemon and let a total idiot hit you hard repeatedly it's going to make you feel really really unwell. If you're going to hit someone that hard atleast give them the opportunity to hit you that hard in the first place. This guy could not pull off ONE of those shots against anyone who isn't a willing stooge. Pointless and dangerous demo. Abusive, idiotic and downright fecking stupid. Goes to prove the old saying that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing!

Although it is difficult to tell much about someone from a single clip...we can know that the uke is an absolute idiot.

This was not kyusho/tuite or anything like it. Uke went down due to blunt force trauma to the spine.

Roy Osborne has stuffed his resume with just about everything but the kitchen sink. Another seminar-warrior most likely.

Kyoshi my aunt fanny.

What I am curious about is why you felt this needed our comments Ron? It is clear what the clip shows. What is not clear is your motives
for the post.

I willing to bet (looking at the man's "credentials") that you two have a bit history...no?


Gav,

I would watch this thread closely, lets not let this denegrate into an e-budo slug-fest.
