CQB Services » W.E. FAIRBAIRN- THE LEGENDARY INSTRUCTOR. By Phil Matthews
Phil Matthews, one of the Liverpool Gutterfighters has written a new article titled CQB Services » W.E. FAIRBAIRN- THE LEGENDARY INSTRUCTOR.
Phil has a good understanding and excellent knowledge of Fairbairn and his contemporaries and this article has some useful facts for the student of modern combatives. Whilst his writing is not of the usual academic standard he is to commended for getting this information out there.
One issue though is Phil's constant reference to people who criticise his work or 'steal' his information. I really don't know who these people are but I'm not sure that refusing to list your sources is the way forward. To me this detracts from the authority of the article. If people are plagiarising Phil's work then he can point this out to the relevant audience. If they are quoting him then that is normal order of things. Ones cademic research works build on those of ones peers. Trying to control access to information you have published on the net is an exercise in futility.
Anyway - enjoy the article, and well done Phil.
Religious Hatred. Again.
