    OH yes yes yes! It might be as good, though I doubt it (but one must try!), as http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=12882 Bunyip's classic "I've started training at a McDojo!"

    You may not report back. I think they're making chili out of people.

    This video made me cry. I'm not kidding - by the 4min mark, I'd gone beyond mere laughter.

    What I want to know now is where the **** all the music videos from Royce Gracie nudriders are...

    UPDATE: I called up the Purple Dragon Academy today. First, I needed confirmation that these were the very same people who did the music video. The conversation went like this:

    ME: Hello, how are you?

    INSTRUCTOR: Pretty good.

    ME: Are you the Purple Dragon Academy?

    INSTRUCTOR: Yes.

    ME: Did you create the music video "The Way of the Purple Dragon"?

    INSTRUCTOR: Yes.

    ME: And Sensei Amber is the very same Sensei Amber who sang background vocals in that song?

    INSTRUCTOR: Yes.

    ME: Well, you've inspired me to check out your dojo. How much for a drop-in lesson?

    INSTRUCTOR: You can come in tonight if you're available. Introductory lesson is free.

    ME: Okay, I'll be there!

    Here's a mental game anyone can play.

    I like to call it "Pick The Sparring Partner You're Least Likely to Maim at Purple Dragon".
