    I currently am. I doubt I'll have funds to get to Kansas by the 27th, and I know no one that lives remotely close.

    The beauty of the Austin connection is that it's a friend of my lady's, so it wouldn't be a wasted trip.

    On a second thought. Let me know when you can come to Austin. We'll set up a throwdown, get all the local boys together for some sparring, training and then FOOD!

    Being that it's Austin, we could probably even get a live band for the party for free.

    We should start a fund to help peng get to the KC mega throwdown. I'm in the process of moving and pretty broke at the moment but Id still throw in money.

    Rewatch the third video.

    If any of you knew what you were looking at, you'd realize that the monk could have annhillated the guy at any time.

    That first move that looks like nothing? Do you actually see what he's doing there?

    As the TKDer tries to kick to the head, the monk sidesteps slightly and strikes the tkder in the ankle and knee simultaneously on opposite sides.

    Watch the way the TKD'er starts favoring and working that leg to shake off the pain that's being inflicted.

    If the monk were to execute that technique at full speed the TKDer would be crippled at first contact.

    You people that call yourself martial artists don't even understand that a strike is occuring.

    Dipshits.
    If you had any notion of what fighting was about, at all, you'd recognize the fact that the shaolin monk was nothing more than a moderately skilled gymnast. Jet Li has the same training as the guy in that video and readily admits to being nothing more than a performance artist.

    Good god, it's obviously a choreographed fight. Anyone that can't see that it's so obviously choreographed needs smacked in the mouth.

    Yes, I'm sure you'd whoop both his and Jet Li's ass.

    A moderately skilled gymnast with a body hardened by intense training.

    Jet Li was a highly skilled child prodigy and is, in essence, primarily a gymnast. He has never been in a fight.

    After becoming China's darling, he was given an easy path through life. All he really did was train hard and do everything he was told. While I'm sure his combat skills are formidable, he's not a "tough guy" in spirit or conditioning.

    I don't believe that Jet Li has ever been capable of experiencing, much less expressing, the level of contempt for the skills of his opponent that the monk in that video conveyed.

    I don't believe it was deliberately choreographed in advance. It looks more like the monk was in strategic control of the situation from the get go and he "choreographed" it.

    The shaolins do all kinds of choreographed fights, they don't bother putting in a referre, and if the demonstration was prearranged, you would have thought the TKDrs would have managed to set up a better showing.

    Think about it from the perspective of an exhibition bout between two Olympic boxers. You don't want to go all out because that increases the chance of being hurt. If it isn't for something that really counts, why risk it?

    Do you fight the same way in all your matches?

    Are you fighting as hard in your weekly sparring practice as you are in a ranking fight? Are you trying to inflict the same level of damage on your sparring partner as a tournament opponent?

    I'm not sure what would be worth the risk for a monk.

    At least the boxers actually hit each other in the face. They donīt just strike into thin air like in that retarded video.
