Fred Stauffer replied to Wael's discussion Should martial arts "philosophies" be thrown out the window?
"I see your points as well.  I think the philosophy of an art is foundational in nature giving some basic beliefs and concepts to develop from though maybe not specific to an individual threat.  For example, the philosophy of your…"

Fred Stauffer replied to Daniel McCullar's discussion Oaths of code and ethics
"I do remember reading a thread that some include teaching awareness of the ramifications of the law as well.  I recently had a class discussing morality vs ethics as it pertained to societal vs individual. "

Fred Stauffer replied to Daniel McCullar's discussion Oaths of code and ethics
"I like that Wael. I think this topic may very well be school specific.  I have had pledges I needed to memorize and recite during classes.  I adopted one of my own driven by the virtures I felt important to reinforce. 1 I will be…"

Fred Stauffer commented on Wael's blog post To win a fight, know your range and your tools
"Very good article, Wael.  I follow a similar approach as well.  I have a different range pattern where Long range is outside of foot strike distance and more appropriate for long reach weapons, parley or running, Open is within foot…"

Fred Stauffer replied to Daniel McCullar's discussion The physical fitness of a teacher
"Ultimately, I think anyone regardless of physiological differences could be a good martial artist.  It would come down to the values and philosophy being taught and how it's conveyed.  I can see it being difficult if the teacher…"

Fred Stauffer replied to Wael's discussion Is the hook kick worth practicing?
"I would also say yes.  If nothing else, to equip your arsenal with another circular kick that could be used in a variety of applications as are already mentioned but also as a feint.  The first strike that came to mind for me was a step…"
