    Well, I don't think that's entirely fair. In the context of the show it is the same as a boxer refusing to spar with a guy that he might eventually have to fight for real.

    That's just being smart.

    I think my favorite kung fu movie move is the "take the blow in the chest, then push them back" reversal. Let's see a UFC fighter do that!

    The Karate Kid movies remind me of why I love this site, why I'm glad I found it, and what a colossal douchebag I might've become if it wasn't for you guys.

    Then again, this site gave me a lust for BJJ which I haven't been able to satiate in six years (of never starting training), so I hate you all a little bit too.

    Ditto. I would have been exactly like all the TMA/ninja nutriders that we get on this site (perhaps a little less outspoken) if I hadn't found this site, and lurked for about 6 months before joining.

    TS, try to look at the German television stations.
    From time to time they send (and resent) dubbed Kung-Fu movies out (they did when I was growing up) and in German those Kung-Fu movies become the best comedy ever.

    Crouching tiger, hidden dragon was the first one that I saw in Chinese with subtitles and it sucked (for me), not because of the story or the wire-fu, but because it took itself so serious. I think I was spoiled by the German dubs.

    ****, I still am. I'm doing Kali and Muay Thai now, largely off the back of being a Bullshido member. Somewhere inside though though is a little kernel of faith that one day the TMA will win through.

    I think it's some kind of need for the universe to work in such a way that something that looks cool and mysterious has to beat something that doesn't. It seems immoral for it to be any other way.

    It's like "One day my Aikido will show all of you fuckers. If I could just find that missing piece"

    It's down to a tiny kernel, but I don't think it'll ever go away. Martial Arts movies are to blame, but I still love them. And FTR - Karate Kid 1 & 2 rocked!

    Yes, I feel exactly the same. "If I just get good enough, like those masters in the movies, kung fu will beat everything!" I think that's a subconscious part of the reason I still practice my forms... but I train Judo/Jujitsu.

    It's no coincidence that one of my favorite movies, The Drunken Master, has none of that bullshit.

    That movie stars Jacky Wu Jing/Wu Jing/Wu Jing Jason who stars in a movie called Fatal Contact.

    Where he is a performance WuShu artist who, in order to get money for a girl, starts "underground fighting".

    Any scene with Simon Yuen pisses me off, but that is of course by design.
