    You should have seen the post I originally typed!

    I think Jason has picked things up and ran with them nicely.

                One of the large problems with Tom's praising of Nadi's fencing ideas, as well as the ideas of Driscoll and Dempsey is that she doesn't bother to any real analysis of why fencing and boxing began to change. There is no indication in her Tom's book that Fencing has indeed moved on. Which hurts her analysis because indeed it has. With new, modern scoring aparatus, the thrust tends to not score as much (prior to electronic scoring-which measures not only contact, but pressure to register score). IN earlier times it was a subjective call. The scoring with the thrust was actually light, barely making contact, but since it made contact it was scored. The new equipment registers pressure, so the blow must actually be substantial to count as a hit. As such, the ideas of Nadi are largely a matter of historical interest more than actual training wisdom.

                Her analysis of boxing, (it is degenerate now, but was utterly refined back in days of yor) neglects evolution of footwork, and head movement etc, and as such seems just as flawed.

                  Very interesting point Max. But then again the idea of progressing and moving forward seems to be an idea some people fear.

                      congratulations mate, hope its a really good day as well
                      if i see you posting on here today i know you are either REALLY sad or you she did a runner

                      as for the book, havent read it but it sounds like the typical fanatical nonsense that seems to grip 90% of martial artists regardless of style. weirdos.

                        Thanks you guys for the well wishes. It was an awesome ceremony in a chapel overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A good time was had by all and my bride was beyond beautiful. For all my fellow Inosanto instructors in the UK, we'll see you (in Scotland) next summer ('10) for the honey-moon. Peace, J~
