Nothing new under the sun

Hey all!

I'm just reading this excellent book : How to be a spy

I was hoping to learn a couple things about self-defense, awareness, what have you... I haven't learned much that is very useful, but it's still a great book, very interesting, and providing insights about how things used to be during WW2.

John L Sullivan

http://m.si.com/4049723/the-first-u-s-sports-superstar/

Interesting article about John L Sullivan, bare knuckle brawler/boxer.  I found his guard intersting, his hand positioning looks somewhat like Wing Chun (Im not a practicioner, only commenting on what little I know about Wing Chun) http://afflictor.com/tag/john-l-sullivan/

Comedian Eddie Izzard gives his view on which martial art is best :-) The “Jujutsu Pencil Trick” he refers too is not made up! I have a copy of that book! Please see images below. A very funny man!

The legalities of sparing

Hi all

Last friday evening during my regular kickboxing session , the subject of sparring and the law came up . One of the students asked the instructor (not me) , why sparring wasnt assault . After much debate we concluded that it proberbly was ! , the only differance being that within our group we chose to be there and are members of the club.

I was just wondering if the forum had any thought on this .

Regards

Jon .
