    Man do I feel sorry for his dummy. Mr. Tatum smacked him in the face like three times than hammer fists him square in the back. I am in pain just watching it.

    kind of reminds me a little of a 'B1A' variation that I've seen him do a few times now (think maybe one of his TOW's was all about it??). Looks cool anyhow, I like the hip-check, gonna play with that some time.

    Gotta love it!

    I remember Larry hitting my black belt, Matt Trejo, with this technique a couple of years ago. He still talks about it, LOL.

    I love these little tidbits of knowledge, I just wish he would put them out a little more often.

    I was lucky enough to Uki for Master Tatum for his 4 hours down here at Mr. Vales school.

    Never been hit so fast with pinpoint accuracy and just enough power to move me for the next movement showing amazing control to not hurt me.

    It was my honor and like Matt I probably will never stop talking about it either, LOL.

    I really like the way Mr. Tatum altered the ending. Great stuff!

    Gotta give the man his props. Although it was a little different from what I learned. He certainly makes it work.

    This one should of been TOW 45, but for some reason unknown to me anyways, he took down TOW 44 working with a shield.

    Anyone know why?

    Brutal!
    Forgive me for asking, but when would I be learning this tech. in the future? Sorry, I'm impatient and don't want to wait until tomorrow to check out the sheets up on the wall...
    Mr. Tatum is something special, that's for sure...

    Great stuff as usual.

    Always a pleasure to work with Master Tatum.

    These tips of the week are such great reminders of little things.

    I often forget how easy it is to snap someone's arm in that situation, but when I see things like this, I say 'oh yeah. And I can do that in all these other moves too.' (cue lightbulb)

    Good to remember.

    I'm going to go ahead and say that it isn't that "easy to snap someone's arm in that situation." You timing would have to be PERFECT and if they've bent their arm at all, the break will fail. Which doesn't discout the rest of the technique, just the break.
