One can argue that MMA is the very essence of JKD.

If he is a pro MMA fighter, run his name through the search function on www.sherdog.com and see what comes up.

and besides, even if the Tai-Chi is worthless, it'll only waste 11 weeks.




You are young. Trust me, you have no weeks in life that you can afford to waste- I am not saying Tai Chi is a waste of time in and of itself, it just may not be the right tool for your individual goals.

this guy takes on 10 other guys at once easy




No he doesn't.

so i'd do well to listen to him.




Time will tell.

ahhh but martial arts is about perseverance, any chance i have of improving my overall performance is something i'm willing to do. i am fully obsessed. 11 weeks is enough to 'learn' it but not to become 'proficient' at it. i will do that in my own time.

so, you are going to try to learn it in 11 weeks and then master it on your own? I guess that is why you name is
The_Master...

Considering anything a waste is the wrong way to see it. However, what you may learn in 11 weeks of TC will probably need to be ditched when you start JKD or MMA as the training is quite different. Believe me, I had to retrain my whole body to do TC.

OK, lets switch this around for an analogy. You are very good at online gaming right? now, lets say that I turn up green as grass in a quake community that you are part of. i get to play on your team in a protect the flag game. Prior to the game, I tell you and our teamates about a strategy an offline friend has guaranteed me will work to my favour in the game. You and the team, having played the game for years, tell me that this strategy is not effective, and I would be best to do something else.

I reply, 'well, my friend is the shizzle at quake, and I believe him'.

That would be my choice, and I would be free to make it, whilst you and the rest of the team would just say

In my scenario, the worst that can happen is I play embarrasingly badly, and get grief over a headset.

in your parallel scenario, the worst that can happen is actual bodily harm.

Your choice. Good luck, there is no more that can be said in reply to your question, other than if you were so sure of this guys advice, why on earth seek a second opinion in the first place?
