    Abir????

    Check this stuff out -

    http://www.abirwarriorarts.com/video.htm

    Supposedly a martial art of the ancient Jews. Looks more like kung-fu and TKD, maybe? I would be interested to hear from anyone that trains this art to get their take on it.

    My BS-o-meter is in the red, though.

    There's a lot of good comedy just waiting to happen with ancient hebrew kung fu.

    Obviously, that is a korean style called.............Moo kwan..or....Moo Duk......something or other.Its not surprising at all that an Hesidic man may have leart this style in New York or Chicago and now is trying to pass it off an ancient Izrealit martial art

    Other possibilities are that before WW2, Jews had emigrated to Manchuria to escape persecution and Nazism.There the Father must have come in contact with a Korean or Chinese martial artist who had thought him this style.

    Been posted before, but it NEVER gets old. This is classic bullshido hilarity at its finest.

    Weren't ancient Jews slaves, then wanderers, then beat up by Jesus?

    Also, I'm pretty sure "Kung Fu Rabbi" was a character on a Sealab 2021 episode.

    I know, thread necromancy is bad. But then, so would be not posting this:

    Abir on tv

    Check the rock he is lifting at min 1,50.

    Is there anybody here who speaks enough hebrew to give a run-down of what the dude is talking about?

    The rock lifting looked highly suspect. Abir looks like nothing more than TKD mixed with Kung Fu including the Chun. At 2:18 the footwork lookss very similar to Korean Taekkyon or Capoeira. Hilarious to watch, worthy of necro.

    You must all be retarded. This is obviously the original Jewdo <<BA-DUM-TISH!!!!!!!>>, before Kano bastardized it and stole all the credit (for the slower ones here...sound it out).


    Thank you folks, I'm here all week. Tip your waitress.
