DVD Review: McDojo in a Box/Tommy Nitro's Karate Adventure
I don't write articles or reviews for Bullshido very often (which may change if the level of sycophantic ass kissing around here picks up sharply... I'm not Phil, just kidding). But occasionally something strikes me like a palm heel to the groin and I've got no choice but to put a grammatical icepack on my intellectual testicles by writing about it.
This is such a situation. Here's a snippet of the review I wrote for this wonderful martial arts product, Black Belts(TM, WTF?) Tommy Nitro's Karate Adventure DVD and Training Set:
<i>The culturally confused Sensei Nobu informs Tommy that “Karate is not for attacking, it is used only for self-defense!”. This is brought up again later in the video when it’s said “There is no first attack in Karate.” This statement is 100% true because Andy Hug, K-1 Champion and Kyokushin Karate stylist had to fly all the way over to Thailand just to learn how to throw the first punch in a fight. It’s reported that this difficult transition took over six months of rigorous training. Normally, Karate sparring sessions go to the time limit with both participants just circling each other, except in those rare instances when one of the competitors trips and falls towards the other one. Since this can be considered an attack, his opponent responds promptly by kicking the falling man in the head before he hits the canvas for the win.</i>
