No problem, as with other arts there is Kali and there is Kali. I've seen some Kali stuff which would give the background for your statement to be meant as real

Not Kali, but similar enough to show what I mean:

Yes, DBMA are quite good along with Leo Gaje's Pekiti Tirsia Kali lineage of which they are an offspring. But I don't think, it's becoming a big competitive sport. Their gatherings are not competitive in the sense of sports competition. They are not about winning, but to get a certain self-awareness. And the risk of injury is quite too high for a competitive sport to ever get allowed by a sports comission. So no big money - no big spreading - and it stays with the enthusiasts.

There was absolutely no offense meant towards you. I'm sorry if you had that impression. I didn't know that guy. I just looked him up after you mentioned him and gave my opinion on what I've seen then. He just didn't impress me, also Wing Chun-wise by the Wing Chun standards I know. But I have a lot of respect for him that he at least steps in the ring an tries to apply his stuff.
