Adam Mizner - Basic Fighting Training

Postby oragami_itto on Tue Nov 06, 2018 9:58 am

New video from Mr Mizner


The fighting aspect is the least interesting to me, none the less I teach it sometimes to those with the desire. This an old video from years ago.....

The attacks are pretty amateurish. That doesn't necessarily make his applications bad, but it does make them very easy to execute.

I especially like the part with the repeated hammerfists to a downed opponent. I guess he wants to get more street cred by being able to say he's taught people in jail...

Don't know if I like it or not. The strikes are done with a lot of isolated arm movements. They look more like they are coming from a tanglang engine than Tai Chi. Seems like a more general sparring approach. Maybe good practice if you aim for competition as Sanda.

Looks like they are going to break out into gay porn or go rape some under age thai kids.

If that's where your mind is going you may want to seek therapy. Not healthy to obsess over such things

I'm finding it impossible to view this without hearing the "everybody was Kung Fu fighting" song playing in my head.

After reading the comments on here, I’m finding it impossible to click on the link to even watch the video.

Touche' sir. Touche'.

Sadly, I'm not sure Hermeticism is well known outside various grandmother's basements. :)

FWIW, the fah jing type work in Hermetics is a body training method used to condition and strengthen the tendons. It's useless for fighting. Be wary of anyone hyping it for that purpose.
