Something I usually do after a Denver omelette for breakfast
It just showed a clip on youtube of him touching a guy's head and then he dives on the floor with some terrible acting! I must have got the wrong thing.
He was at one time,think he was ranked at green belt,but then left and started his own association.He did an interview in a magazine and was very open about his background.

Not my thing at all but if its what you are looking for he is certainly worth checking out.
OMG, hahahahahahahaha xD
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Egg Cutter:

I'd let him do that to me.
Just to see what happened.
I don't honestly think I'd fall over like that dude.
I'd really, really like it to be as effortless as it looks in that vid but it just seems too good to be true.
I've been sitting here trying to give myself an Egg Cutter for a few minutes now.
1) My head hurts
2) The wife is looking at me funny
3) Sheffield Wednesday
Egg cutter is now firmly added to my "absolute pile of steaming crap" list
what the hell was egg cutter
this guys is also not very good a things pertaining to what you would do combat
he defo pillaged something - their wallets
Actually that one looked a lot better than Stutley...but it was a lot of small things made to look more than they are
0:42 for example...that is a white belt wrist lock with elbow assistance. I learned that in the WJJF for goodness sake! It does work, but any number of people can use it without the unnecessary theatrics.
There is some wheat in the vid though...you just have to know what to look for
it looks like a mish mash of techniques his picked like the guard pass he uses etc
A lot of the stuff he does in that video is found in tai chi,only thing is if Mr Pillage practiced tai chi he would be moving far more fluidly and using less of the brute force he is currently using.Compare his takedown with the one shown at 1.40 in this clip of Eddie Wu.

sorry but the elbow tickling and weird one inch punch thing was weird from mr. pillage
maybe its some magic nerve science i dont know.
and what was with that bit right at the end where it showed him punching the guy in the stomach while moving past him and flapping his other arm? does he not use any type of guard?
I haven't got a clue about that arm tickling stuff but the bit at the end looked as if he was off balance and using the arm to steady himself.
I can teach you the arm tickle in about 1 minute...it is nothing to do with the arm and everything to do with the wristlock
And that IMO is what its all about. Theatrics parts punters from their pounds stirling very nicely thank you.
I wonder what sort of background the people who attend these kind of seminars have in the martial arts?
Well...a few years back MAI did a "super seminar" with Neil Adams (fantastic), Goeff Thompson and Peter Consterdine (awesome), Rick Young (amazing) and Tom Muncy (erm....yeah).
Tom Muncy was affiliated to Dillman and then associated with Rick Moneymaker and Stutely was in with them at some point.
Even after the seminar I was baffled as to why Muncy was in with the other dudes. It is a weird situation.
I must remember to buy a Geoff Thomson book, nobody has anything but praise for the man xD
Hah...embarassingly, I bought a t-shirt off Rick Young's missus who asked me "Have you had a good day?".
I thought she said "Have a good day" and replied "You too!" and walked off.
Only when I walked off did I realise what she's actually said.
It was a great seminar. Ronnie Green was there just training along. I'd have gladly done a seminar with him too.
