    Dude, he never wrote this for a grant.

    As for smacking of BS, either put up or shut up on the accuracy of his claims. So far, it seems fairly on the money. He points out the themes and underlying messages of the film, and makes generalizations as to the state of martial arts schools nowadays. Short of sociological research to see what the actual state of affairs is, this article is A-OK by me.

    Yes I do realise this isn't for a grant there was just a few things about the article that irritated me. I know that any given article cannot acount for all areas associiated with a topic, but surely the links in "karate kid" to the literature peripheral to the martial arts and the Asian martial ethos should be disscussed in this article? The film is entitled "The Karate Kid" afterall, does this not scream for a discussion on the actual traditions of Karate-Do?

    ok i'm just shitty because the article reminded me of pukes who dis guys like Funakoshi for not soley being concerned with bare hand inficted mayhem. The "martial arts are all about fighting-period" idea seems to be pretty out of order with the writings of many of histories greatest martial artists. Yes without combat application the arts are just like dances, but with that "tang" of of a genuine martial edge (to paraphrase Lee-ha!) then the concept of "BUDO" is indeed a reality.

    Yeah, but you do aikido, so your opinion on this subject automatically doesn't count.

    Just to let you guys know, "The Perfect Weapon" is on HBO right now. I couldn't help myself and actually turned to it. Can you guess which scene was on? Of course you can, it was the teenage Jeff Speaker using kenpo to beat the **** out of a MUCH LARGER, FULLY SUITED UP FOOTBALL PLAYER! I'm pretty sure that every 15-year-old kenpo student in America ejaculates when they watch that part.

    As for me, I think my eyeballs are still burning from the pure, unadulterated presentation of CHF (Cheesy Hollywood Fighting). The horror. . . the horror. . .
    "I had once talked to Billy Conn, the boxer, about professionals versus amateurs - specifically street fighters. One had always heard rumors of champions being taken out by back-alley fighters. Conn was scornful. "Aw, it's like hitting a girl," he said. "They're nothing."
