For those of you into martial arts, you'll understand why this is exciting. It's a two-day training, six hours each day, Oct. 8-9. My wife gets to train with him, too, on the 7th for free--he's offering a free women-only self-defense seminar.

I'm just glad to finally get into one of his seminars at my Krav school--I only train in Krav Maga (and Silat/Eskrima, occasionally), but have been wanting to branch out a bit, and this will be a nice introduction to some JKD, Muay Tai, ground work (which I'll be starting in Krav in late October after I move up to level 4...assuming I pass my test), and many other things.

I'm just glad that my instructor is a part of the IMB Academy "ohana" and that at 74 years old, Sigung Bustillo still comes out to our school.

Like I said--I'm pretty damn excited. It should be great! If you live in the Cincinnati area and are interested in going, let me know--I think that there are still some openings.

Richard Bustillo

If you scroll down a bit on that page and see the motorcycle on the cover of his book, that is sitting in the entry way of my Krav school.

If you like this guy and you feel he helps you, more power to you.

I'm surprised, actually , that I haven't seen a thread on these fraud places, though I didn't actually search.

Do train for spiritual growth, self-defense, as a part of your exercise regimen, all of the above, or some other purpose? Have you ever entered into a competition in any of your disciplines? Would you consider yourself a martial artist, a mixed-martial artist, or some other means of identifying in the context of the martial arts (both the traditional arts and modern, such as JKD)?

Good luck in your training!

Sounds like you're having fun. Which is good.

But from what I read a more traditional martial art would be more beneficial.

having a plan is great until you get punched in the face. Mike tyson.

Martial arts are good for exercise but really not much else. I guarantee that it's not gonna protect you. Not even close.

If you get into a fight the best thing to do is one of 3 things:
1) run
2) scream for help
3) find some kind of weapon. anything. a rock, a stick anything. that will give you a major advantage. That instantly levels the playing feild with any black belt.

Plus for example, here we can't carry guns. But in the states every single human is packing heat, including babies and seniors in wheel chairs. They're all waiting for a chance to blow your head off. So what is your Kadagra gonna do against my 357.

Again it's fun in theory but in the real world it just doesn't work. Like in the real world someone's gonna pepper spray you. Then how are you gonna fight back? Your kudagra is useless.

Martial arts in general is a minefield of frauds, conmen and crap teachers. Have encountered many. I suppose it's just part of the learning process. There are good krav instructors out there but finding them takes some effort.

Disagree...We use techniques at work everyday which are taken from martial arts and it has saved lives those techniques.
I have seen 5 foot wisps of nurses do one man take downs of 280lb 6 foot mentally ill rugby players.
A decent self defence course does help people and give them a better chance If somethng happens...the best defence is run away and escape but a good teacher will tell you this at lesson 1.

Truth be told my brother and I learned stand up boxing,as well as some martial arts,I found that the knock out punch works best if attacked,but fun taking someones feet out too,so unless your very good at martial arts,you'll probably get your ass kicked as I remember

interesting thread.

Richard bustillo is the real deal.

Not a fan of krav and i largely agree with reldra.

But bustillos JKD is legit. So is escrima and silat.

Id love to train with him at a seminar. If you want to learn more silat (cimande and serak) i know an excellent teacher in cleveland. Hes also proficient in pekiti tirsia and sinawalli. Hangs with cecep raman so thats pretty damned legit. Pasudan silat is pretty effective and brutal.

For the escrima or silat impretty knowledgeable. Hit me up if you ever got questions like hows heaven 6 go again. Or i dont get this djurus.

But dude have fun. Bustillo is a legend.

What are you talking about?

Yes, I know that many krav schools are garbage, but ours is not--we actually work directly with and train from the curriculum created by Ran Nakash. If you are implying that my school is one of these "McDojos," as my instructor calls them, then you are sorely mistaken.

Did you even research anything that I posted, or did you just want to try and pretend like my instructor (Michael S. Peterson) or Sigung Richard Bustillo are frauds and don't know what they're talking about?

You claim to be into martial arts...your comment makes me think otherwise (although I agree that many Krav places are BS)

Nothing that my instructor teaches is for exhibition or tournament purposes--everything is only for self defense and about as pure as it gets.

I don't consider myself a martial artist--I consider myself someone well-trained in the skills of self defense based mostly in the teachings of Krav Maga, which is, in and of itself, a form of mixed martial arts, as it borrows from many different arts into a system that is all about brutally subduing your enemy by whatever means necessary.

I train for possible real-life scenarios, not a judge and points.

You know nothing--at all--about my school or how I train.

My instructor, though, repeats that quote from Tyson quite often, to remind us that even though Krav teaches choreographed defenses against common attacks, they will not always work in every situation, and that you must always draw on what you've learned overall to adapt to each situation.

Don't worry--I know how to defend against a gun in multiple scenarios.

Do you even know why these systems are called "martial" arts? They've been bastardized in recent years to be turned into a game, but originally, these system were taught to the military of nations as a means of survival. Those systems are what are taught in my school, not the tournament-focused games that most martial-arts schools teach.

As for your three things to do in a fight:
1) If possible, sure, but that's not always possible
2) That will do nothing to protect you, but MAYBE it will scare away the attacker. Maybe.
3) Yes, finding an improvised weapon is always a good tactic, but again, you don't always have that option, and quite honestly, if you're going up against someone trained to defend against weapons, it won't level jack s**t.

You've obviously never trained a damn thing in your life, and if you have, you should have found a different instructor.

a reply to: BASSPLYR

Sorry, man, but if you agree with Reldra about her points on Krav, again, you haven't trained in it, and if you have, you haven't trained with the right people.

I feel like I've discussed my school with you before--if not, this is it.

Don't get me wrong--a LOT of martial artists have a negative view of Krav, and I can generally understand why (fake Krav schools, tough to understand its applicability and brutality by just seeing a few videos online, etc.), but that's generally based out of ignorance about it. In the real world, if it's REAL Krav from Isreal, I would prefer it as my fighting system over anything else that my school offers.

That sentiment is backed up by numerous of our instructors who teach JKD, Kempo, and Krav. Even my instructor believes that, in the real world, Krav is the one go-to system that everyone should know.

When people who have obviously never given Krav a chance talk about how iffy--or even fraudulent--the system is, I just really have to shake my head and wonder why the comment was even made.

Have you trained in Krav before? If so, which school?

How do you knock-out punch someone who has you from behind in a bear hug while lifted up in the air? Or choking you against a wall? Or who has you in a guillotine choke? Or is coming at you with a knife attempting to stab you? Or who has a gun to the back of your head? Or the guy sitting on your chest chocking you on the ground?

A knock-out punch is sweet and all, and obviously works well when it can be applied.

It can't always be applied quickly, effectively, or even at all.

However, I do agree that if you try to apply martial arts in a fight and you are not very, very good and efficient at it, you will end up with your ass kicked.

Slow down there. I think my krav comment came across wrong. Real krav like youre learning is kick ass and effective. Krav is victim to the trend of other mcdojos jumping onto the name and teaching bs krav. Theres a lot of really bad bjj schools out there too. Frauds trying to capitalize on the names of other arts.

We have talked before and i rememver telling you then and again in this thread that youre going to a legit school.

Also, the offer still stands. If you ever got any questions regarding the escrima or silat/kali youre training feel free to hit me up.

Krav is a lot like kaju and wun hop chaun do. A mix of many arts. Kaju and wun hop are pretty damned legit even though they are also a chimeara of arts and techniques.

Hell even silat is a mix of what works.

Wow. I wasnt dissing your school. Calm down.

Besides all of those arts are BS. i only study Ameri-Do-Te nowadays

Good deal. Judges and points serve a purpose. Ever wanna roll? We keep the mats clean here in NYC. Mat time is at a premium and BJJ may not be your thing, but I always like to feel a different squeeze and test my limits. And I'll avoid the name-dropping, but I'd freely invite any one on here who does roll to PM me if you are ever in The NJ/NYC area - the only time I ever mentioned this love on this site was when Nate tapped McGregor - and want to have an opportunity to see a legend in action. ATS is the last place I'd expect any fellow grapplers to be hanging around, but we'll see.

Wait the whole city of ny does bjj? Im confused.

Do we roll in central park or times square? Would the "rolling" be confined to just bjj or are we allowed to strike. And if so, where?

Am i allowed to look you in the eyes when we wrassle in the mean streets of upper manhatten or perhaps the new jersey parkway and we're embraced in a umoplata together and im all like subdued and feeling safe in your muscley and powerful arms? Or is that all still verboten.

Also if this is on the premium mat time then i demand we use some bleach to kill off the clap and other various social diseases first? I mean sometimes thats not cauliflower ear is all im sayn.

Inquiring minds want to know!


Also im not a mma fighter or a grappler but ats does have a few of both. So maybe someone here will want to roll with you. Who knows!
