An interesting thing about him were his stick classes. He would teach us how to shoot in for a takedown, then secure the club/stick around legs or ankles and then force a takedown and submission. It was a good technique that worked and had it's place in the world.

I just always thought though, it would be more efficient to just hit the guy with the night stick because he was teaching street stuff that involved weapons and I didn't think it was a good idea to actively seek out a grappling situation when weapons are involved.
