If anyone has heard or is aware of the the Keysi Fighting Method they will know that the trade mark / defence for this system is to cover the head as one is attacked etc, this is called: the thinking man.
The covering of the head is nothing new as it is a natural instinct of the human body and this is what this fighting system is based on, however, an untrained individual would cover their head as they were about to be hit or after, and of course when they are having seven bells knocked out of them etc.
So, is this a realistic approach to defence and fighting etc? If so how come the likes of the formidable Master Matsumura, Master itosu, and Master Motobu etc didnt include and record this in the Kata they created and their fighting systems / methods? Or did they? and if so where is the evidence etc?
I tried the Keysi Fighting Method about nine years ago to see what all the fuss was about, being very open minded i like to try new things but it just didnt appeal to me.
Some feedback about this topic would be very interesting.
