    Man, how many Shaw Brothers movies have you watched? All of them? How many is that?

    Naw, I'm nowhere near watching them all. They made horror, comedies, sci fi and love stories. They are like any American studio.

    There are things from the early sixties I have not seen. The earliest SB I've watched is Come Drink With Me. I've probably well over a hundred and that's just looking at my DVD collection in front of me. I have multiple VHS tapes, with multiple movies, that I haven't replaced with DVDs.

    I wonder when he is going to post his findings on exotics dancers. All of them have daddy issues and have been abused as children.

    That sounds nice, but if there's one thing I've learned from comic books, it's that most super heroes are broken people.

    First, everyone experienced humiliation, confrontation, insecurity, bullying, spankings etc. So my point is, what about all those people that don't do MA? aren't they broken? Secondly, what about all those bullies that have no MA background? are they not broken? What about body builders and gym rats? are they broken too? He kinda states the obvious here, of course a lot of the MA practitioners started it because of a need for a tool to help them in case some violent **** happens. That is exactly why MA were invented in the first place. People are insecure, if doing MA helps with that, than WTF is his point? Maybe he is insecure because of his baldness , and lack of physical presence, so he is trying to compensate with an image of superior intellect. Men strive to be Alpha males, so they can get laid. Some chase money and status, some intellectual prowess etc. If working out a few times a week helps you come to terms with who you are and what you accomplished than you have it easy.

    Phoenix Jones, the "real life" Seattle superhero from a year or two back is now an undefeated professional MMA fighter.

    All those times he was abused by street criminals and the Seattle PD....see what happens?

    Now he's winning fights instead of saving old ladies' purses. If ONLY he had found Stefan Molyneux's wisdom first...the streets might still be protected.

    I started out in Hanmudo because I figured the breakfall training would help with my desire to be a professional wrestler, my Hanmudo teacher and Ken Shamrock got me into grappling, and it turned out Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practice was much more enjoyable than pro wrestling practice, so I got into it full time and never looked back.

    On the other hand, my younger brother hunts the way the Ayatollah of Iran practices Islam, and he was mauled by a fawn when he was very young. Perhaps there is wisedom in what this man says.

    A lot of decisions I make are based on which option will lead to a better story, because I don't want to be one of those boring old guys who stayed on the straight and narrow and lived a totally ordinary life. Investing in adventure, rather than money alone, if you will. And one day, I'm sure I'll be happy that I spent so many years doing martial arts, when I can tell stories about road trips to fight strangers instead of the fascinating story of my perfectly maintained timesheet log. Martial arts also gives me something to pass along to the next generation that's older, richer, and more complex than my own creations.

    I am impressed how much this guy likes to lecture,
    while he so obviously doesn't like to read.
