I would like to reinforce Zach's point earlier about disagreeing with the historical points, as opposed to the training itself. From what I have read, you seem like a well-informed and able martial artist. Your training sounds like good stuff, and I would sincerely and with no sarcasm, be interested to see some video clips. I imagine that your training and mine has more similarities than differences.
I second that.
The2nd ammendment, it makes all the others possible. <///<
