    I believe that they are trying to use the martial arts to get them pumped for conventional warfare, not a fist fight or a cage match. We may consider the TMA's to be ineffective, but Japan used them to create a super motiviated army that crushed all of Asia. Which is what that maniac in north Korea would love to emulate. So in that sense, it's very practical.

    This is an example of martial arts used as political/military/nationalistic propaganda. The demos are clearly designed as spectacles to show off toughness, discipline, "warrior spirit" etc. - all the things that Kim Jong Il is so keen on associating with himself. It's the North Korean equivalent of British soldiers performing at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo - basically, military tradition meets showbiz.

    When North Korean soldiers actually fight, they use automatic weapons.

    So we shouldnt smash them with 2x4's or use their heads as hammers when we go to war with them.

    Guess we'll just have to shoot them.

    The association between budo and Japanese military culture is what inspired the Allies to ban budo organizations during the occupation.
