Check this out and tell me your opinion. The owner is an ex-cop who started this place up in the early 80s. Its based on real life scenarios. They even have a stimulation room where you fight in the rain, dark, and even in a bus.

There is no point exposing yourself to training in different climatic conditions, if the training itself is lacking in intensity and realism.

Anyone who has left their house on a regular basis during their lives has familiarity with the weather in their locale. Not everyone knows how to deal with the physical and psychological effects of violence.

The clip you offered shows people not learning what to do in the snow, rain and fog.
I would prefer to see people learning what to do in a good old fashioned training facility.

Whats your reasoning on people learning in a training facility compared to the rain/snow. They also have a bus in the back for fighting in small confined areas.

This place in on Long Island, NY.

I actually like the idea of training and fighting in various conditions. Their facility is actually very well put together.

However I am not that impressed with the clips on youtube and how they drop their hands in the slow motion sparring.

My friend used to go there but he didnt stay long. He only lasted 3 sessions with me too. But from what he stated the martial art taught there is Gung Fu based.

Exactly what I heard to bro. Its derived from Wing Chung. The whole fighting in various conditions is one of the reasons im considering it. I also like there stance. They keep both hands up, one in front of the other, fingers tight togeather and elbows locked in. So whatever way the attackers coming from it'll be hard to get a shot in.
Whats the reason your friend left? Thanks for the input bro.

He left due to the weenie factor.... When fantasy meets reality and you actually have to do hard work to be good at something most people turn into a weenie and quit.

I actually DON'T like their stance as I see holes in it. I prefer the old boxer's stance with the elbows in and hands close to the chin. Eliminates the time it takes to defelect as my hands are already at my vital areas. Plus in the sparring they drop their hands to block a kick which in my book is a no-no. Check the kick with your legs so you dont take your cover away from your face.

But that's just me. I've been punched in the face plenty of times to know what works for me and what doesnt.

IMO the only problem with the old boxer stance is the fact it keeps the face vulnerable. One punch to your face and your [censored]. LOL so he quit because he couldn't handle it? Thats pretty funny. IMO when you kick your not supposed to look down or move your hands.
You also gotta think, when it comes down to it, its more of the student then the art. If you put your heart into Karate for 5-7 years your going to be good, and any training is better then none.

Yeah big talker... total weenie. Love him he's a close friend.... but a weenie.

Well I know what works for me as I've put in my time in full contact sparring and still continue to tighten up my game and become more well rounded. Everyone is a little different in what they want to achieve. Also height and weight also come into the factor.

Being small at 5'4" and stocky (160lbs) I have to keep compact, light footed, and land with speed and power.

Have you trained before?
