Re: Matt Thorton recounts an experience with Aikido

OTOH, I would wery much doubt that Thornton sees the Dog Brothers as good example of kata-based MA since they infact use "alive" training (very alive from the videos Ive come across).

There are certainly capable groups such as the Dog Brothers who are actively experimenting with incorporating kali/silat into the MMA context, and perhaps such efforts are more deserving of respect than what Thornton's position would seem to imply. It's not like kali/silat has never been used against live opponents, it's just that the live context was different than the MMA context.
