Master Jeff replies!

Master Jeff, the subject of the “Sensei Jeff Gets you Shot” series, has actually replied to the original post in which I had…well more than a few issues with his techniques.  Now, what’s interesting is that his reply here is a lot more polite than the one he posted at ENDO.  Interesting.  The short version of what he said here at Gun Nuts is that if I’d like to come down to Miami and play airsoft tag that I’m more than welcome to come to his school and give it a whirl.  Read both comment threads to get an informed opinion.


  1. You know, I kinda like him now. Seems down to earth, and is just exploring self-defense options rather than being the uber-tactical Ninja I suspect most of these fists v guns martial artists out to be.

    I’m glad he responded, and thanks Caleb for pointing it out.

    Also thanks Master Jeff for commenting!

  2. To be honest, his responses sound more professional and reasoned than his original videos. He seems like he’s put the thought into it, even though I don’t fully agree with him. Not so bad as originally reported. Would be interesting to see the results of his offer, which does seem fair and generous even.

  3. If a fund is setup I would be more than happy to donate a few bucks to your flight Caleb.

    1. It’s more time than anything. When you’re self-employed, you have to make choices on where you’re going to spend your time, and how that time is going to make you money. I’d probably enjoy some playtime with Jeff, but I can’t see the money in it.

      1. Hey Caleb, it’s Master Jeff. Were you the guy who called me out on the safety issues? I think so. I appreciate it, brother. I was getting too familiar with my weapons – a truly sophomoric screw up about which I’m very embarrassed. Better embarrassed than dead or responsible for someone else being dead. I’m getting a blue gun, that’s it.

        How could I influence you to come down? Beach? Great looking babes growing on trees? Corona falling from the sky in huge droplets? I’d chip in for your air fare too. A training session with you would really be great, you see. What an experience! Honestly, I’d be nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs, and that’s a good thing. If, in that nervous condition, I could make something work with you who knows what you’re doing with a firearm, I’d feel really good about ever having to try it with some punk. If I couldn’t make it work, then I could always say “hey, you know what? This don’t work.”

        Call me if you want to kick it around.

        And pack your slide


        1. “Great looking babes growing on trees?”

          That’s a sales pitch that probably won’t get Caleb’s wife very enthused about him going down there, that’s for sure.

  4. It’s an interesting affair; he has the less confrontational post here considering you tore him a new one with each time-stamp analysis.

    I do like his guts though. AND I would love to see the resulting video.
    I’m perfectly in favor of this going either way. If a gunnie gets beat up on video, or Jeff gets his technique disproved, it still is all good in the en

    Caleb. you should go 😀

    1. Right on, Hiroshi-Tea. Man, my goal is to learn and pass it on then learn some more. Let me apologize for any hostility on my part on any blog or anywhere else. Hostility muddies the water and lowers the level for everyone. I got torn a new one for my bad presentation and I deserved it, so forget it.

      If someone wants to come down and really train, I’ll split your air fare if you. I also have a couple air soft guns we can destory, and tons of ammo. We can train guns, disarms, knives, whatever. Defeat among us strengthens us in the real battle, God forbid it should ever happen.

  5. I appreciate all you guys’ reconsidering your image of me. I think the biggest mistake here was how I agreed to shoot the videos. The guy called me, swept in like a hurricane, gave me one take per technique, no planning, no scripting, no checking the footage… just shoot from the hip… (no pun intended). Usually, I have this policy for people who rush me into something: “If you need an answer now, then it’s no.” That’s what I should have said. Honestly though, it’s been a great learning experience.

    BTW, if anyone fools around with disarms, please watch your trigger finger! When you move quick, even an AirSoft gun can hyper-extend your pointer, break it, or strip the skin off like a wire-stripper.

    Again I ask your forgiveness for any aggressive vibe you got from me. Any I received is long since forgotten. I consider it all education.

    1. My big question would be whether or not the same movement causing hyper-extension of the shooters trigger finger would also cause the firearm to discharge.

    2. If you should be able to do these successfully against Caleb, or some other very capable shooter, with an Airsoft, and you’re filming it, there’s a very educational thing you could add to that. Show the moves to a white or yellow belt and have them try.

      That would do a good job of keeping people watching from thinking that a handful of classes, or just watching the video alone, would be enough to pull those off without being shot.

  6. I’ve seen some disarms taught in which(in real life) breaking the trigger finger was intentional.

  7. Yeah, I’ve had a pistol disarm shown to me before, your trigger finger is usually sore for a couple days after…….

    Note for you Jeff on your other blog reply, “Or if you’re on public school property where concealed carry is a felony.”.

    I assume you are referring to:
    Gun Free School Zones Act of 1995 Title 18 U.S.C Section 922(q)?
    Read the law, The Gun Free School Zones Act of 1995 States:

    “(B) Subparagraph (A) does not apply to the possession of a firearm—
    (ii) if the individual possessing the firearm is licensed to do so by the State in which the school zone is located or a political subdivision of the State, and the law of the State or political subdivision requires that, before an individual obtains such a license, the law enforcement authorities of the State or political subdivision verify that the individual is qualified under law to receive the license;”

    Subparagraph (A) is the part that says it is illegal for any individual knowingly to possess a firearm in a school zone.
    Most people only read part A and not the exclusions.
    If you have a permit to carry (that required a background check before receiving it) you are exempted from the law.

    I carry all the time at my kid’s school, even walked in with a 44 mag on my hip once, I was going hunting and had to drop something off on the way. Never even gave it a thought.

    Don’t listen to what the liberal media tells you about the laws, go online and read the actual law. There are always loopholes.

  8. Zermoid, it mainly depends on individual state laws. In KY, conceal carry permit or not, one can not possess a firearm on public school property.
