    I wish I weren't, but I really am baffled by that joke. Can you do me the dubious honour of explaining to me?

    Not to steal thunder, but I believe sfe is refering to the documentary Budo--which you used to be able to get from Japanese embassies--which included a guy trying to kick and punch a stationary train.

    Love the video--fed my fantasies of learning "t3h d34dly" when I were a wee spud.

    sfe:

    My deceased teacher told a story of training in Okinawa--"uphill . . . both ways . . . dead of winter . . . 120 degrees in the shade"--when, during a group training, a senior instructor literally "crashed" the class . . . stumbling in holding a big bottle of Some GodAwful Brew and colapsed in the corner. The class leader just kept going.

    I wish I could remember so I could credit him a practitioner who stated:

    And we need to return to the heart of karate which is drinking a lot of beer and kicking the hell of each other.

    P.S. One thing I miss about Okinawa is the Happy Okinawan Girls shouting "gozaimasu!" because they have to. . . .

    P.P.S. It is a fun video. I wonder if a bunch of Japanese karate-ka were mumbling, "why the **** do we have to do drill in the snow?"

    I'm curious, who is the Editor speaking in the [] on DrX's posts?
    Is it a mod? or just DrX commenting on himself?
