    Yeah, they have him. But it doesn't really do them any good since he's known for his acting, not his fighting.

This void could only be filled by a slick, talented and smooth practitioner of the ancient samurai art of jujitsu bringing all that is great about it to the big screen.

    At last, after years of searching, I've finally found my movie idol for JJJ:


    But not only blessed with martial skills, his adept acting touch has inspired me to follow a new career in acting:


    Thank you, Samurai Cop! Thankyou

    I'd never heard of 'Samurai Cop' until this thread.

    Though it is somewhat familiar.

    I read somewhere "The Room" was the worst movie ever made.

    Samurai Cop is...up there.

    But Samurai Cop is no Toxic Avenger

    True story, Roger Ebert went to review this movie and walked out after a half hour.

    what about the real life Samurai Cop?

    http://www.samuraicop.com/

    He was the first Costa Mesa Police Officer to receive a letter of commendation for his years of service to the community from the President of the United States. His fellow officers gave him the nickname of the "Samurai Cop". Sensei Dye currently teaches part time as an Assistant Defensive Tactics Instructor for the Orange County Sheriff’s Academy.
