Response to Oakland group - BL was actively hiding his methods

 

Bruce was hiding techniques as far back as Seattle. That's why Jim Demile and Jesse Glover eventually dropped out of the Seattle group around 1963. They both felt they weren't learning anything new, and suspected Bruce was holding back some of his knowledge. Jim has recounted this story in various interviews, and how his dispute almost came to blows. After Jim and Bruce developed the 1-inch punch, there was a falling out between them.

What techniques Bruce was holding back, we'll never know, since by definition, he didn't reveal them. His reasoning was 'why should I teach other people how to beat me?' (I think those were more or less his exact words to Demile). If you think about it, it makes sense.
