Whilst this may not be everyones cup of tea I think some of the points raised in the review should be of interest.

I like his contact management drill. That's likely the best thing there.

His proxemics drill is a simplified version of the Wing Chun "4 Gates" drill, however it lacks the strike return and the complexity of multiple target areas.

Eye Jabs... basic, unrefined version of the ones in Wing Chun/JKD.

His Mount Drill is basic BJJ/MMA with eye jabs replacing punches.

His Default Position is basic, beginner level close range cover from Muay Thai. His Elbow drill is a beginning, level 1 Muay Thai elbow drill, minus the second arm protecting the forehead.

The knifework does appear to be FMA/Folsom Prison based.

’please, just back up’’ ‘’BACK UP!’’ To ‘’BACK THE f*ck UP!’’


Can I add: "would you please recoil in the toilet that shot you here?" to the verbal negotiation list? :)

:D

Seriously though, you want to keep the verbal simple and direct. Insults are, IMO, not a good idea as it limits the ability for the bad guy to walk away and save face. Be very firm and assertive, to the point of rudeness but I'd advise against insults.

For example, compare

"Back The f*ck Up!

to

"Back Up You poonani!"

The second, by virtue of the insult, escalates the situation whilst the first is firm but is not as directly challenging.

Talking seriously, I generally say "no thanks" or "not now" when "probably "challenged, giving the other side the impression that I don't understand/hear, and i walk away very quickly.
Being off topic sometimes is a good idea.

Undoubtedly.

A firm 'No' or 'No Thanks' is good as it makes it difficult to initiate further conversation.

It is also useful as someone who goes past this point is being overly pushy - a sign that something may be amiss. Gavin de Becker (The Gift Of Fear) gives a number of examples of this kind of behaviour as the early warning signs prior to a criminal assault. Of course, this is far from a defniate but is something which should raise a little flag.
