Interesting, although I don't fight this way when I ring fight, I didn't know that the US fought the English National team and I sure didn't know Terry Creamer beat then HWT World Champ Vic Charles. Creamer teaches Isshin Ryu in the St. Louis area and I remember attending a few of his tournaments a number of years ago. Here's the link.
