Response to Jackie Chan better than Carruthers??
Incase you missed it my point was Jackie Chan is not some lethal weapon on the street, nor does he claim to be. Jet Li doesn't either, when he made a movie with UFC fighters in it he mentioned many times that they could beat him easily in a real fight. The general public many think Jackie Chan or Jet Li would be deadly killing machines in the street, to experienced trained martial artists they know that is not the case.
Some people may think Tommy Carruthers is some deadly killing machine too, to experienced martial artists most don't view him as such - the way he puts movements together and substance indicates he isn't much of a fighter. Jackie Chan could duplicate any Tommy Carruthers demo and look as good, and Jackie can put combinations together and flow much better than Tommy Carruthers.
Don't be fooled by 'dry land swimming' demos that people like Tommy Carruthers do, and be suspicious of anyone doing such demos but who never free spars all out in demos or releases film of themselves doing so. People like Tommy Carruthers or Tim Tackett aren't fighters, nor would they claim to be, they are more technicians and teachers.
