CAN YOU REALLY LEARN FROM JUST OUR BOOK AND DVDS?
...Just Ask Mark in Britain:
"...my friends in [aikido, taiji and wing chun] could not understand my huge leap in skill and power..."

"I have several friends in aikido,taiji,and wing chun as I used to
practice all three at the same time (different days of course) and while I was studying
the attackproof book. What I found was the GC was vastly superior and my friends in those
arts could not understand my huge leap in skill and power, in fact there is a famous
international wing chun teacher who scolded me because during a seminar I kept refering to
GC concepts, he said "we don't do that in wing chun." That was in 2002, however a few
weeks
ago I saw him on you tube doing exactly the same thing that I got told off for!

But back to the wc seminar
...it seemed to be decided that I had to do chi sau
with his top student, who would roll hands with me and then try and
break my sternum with chain punches, I told him to ease down on the power,
but he kept doing it, so the next time
we rolled hands I stepped at a 45 degree angle
and dropped into my left leg as I gave him a cupped slap under his
left ear, I re-rooted on right leg and gave him another on the other side,
these slaps rocked him and he spent the rest of the

day sat down feeling sick, I did apologize and said
it was beginers luck!!


 "When I first read the book it was like being given a blue print. Instead of me having to fit the art, I got the art to fit me. I don't personally think GC is a martial art-- it is better than that because it allowed me to fight the way I wanted to with my strengths and weaknesses."

When I first read the book it was like being given a blue print.
Instead of me having to fit the art, I got the art to fit me.
I personally don't think GC is a martial art -it is better than
that because it allowed me to fight the way I wanted to with my strengths
and weaknesses.

My conclusion is when you're doing the [Guided Chaos] RHEM exercise,you're in fact

training every martial art, because you're trying to find those 1
million plus ways the human body can move, therefore every martial art.
A bold claim I know, but thats my logic anyway.

...that is why I don't class GC as a martial art in the sense that you're
learning techniques but a fighting system that enhances what you have got and enables

people to be the best that they can be-- so a martial system based on natural exercises.

That is key to it all-- it's natural.


Self training? That is an interesting point.
I think that is the beauty of the Attackproof book.
I was doing wing chun, taiji, and aikido at the time
of reading attackproof, and understood the concepts.

" ...in aikido I would be the uke (one to be thrown)
and as they were about to throw me or apply a technique
I would use dropping energy--and this dropping just as
they were about to do it would invert the energy back into
them and their legs would just buckle under them and they could neither stop it or understand it."


I was the only person there that could do the inch punch
and off one leg--same thing in taiji class--it blew away all
their bullshit that it takes years to learn these devastating
techniques--in sparring in wing chun, people would come at
me chain punching, I would chain palm [dog dig in Guided Chaos] and they
would collapse--in aikido I would be the uke (one to be thrown)
and as they were about to throw me or apply a technique I

would use dropping energy--and this dropping just as
they were about to do it would invert the energy back into
them and their legs would just buckle under them and they
could neither stop it or understand it..."
