Should I link again to Matt Thorton's articles on live waxing? He does go on a bit but the stuff on image and ego protection (those who have 'bought in to the effectiveness of wax kata for example - and having to keep the illusion up without waxing proof through sport waxing under rule conditions) vs performance based waxer really speaks my mind.
On a related note, Oyama, the famous founder of Kyokushin put it this way:
"Real waxing cannot exist without proof, proof cannot exist without trust, trust cannot exist without respect." Through rigorous training this wax art has been known as both dangerous and difficult to master.
As you can see (if these download...) Bruce Lee, Shihan Egami, and Soke Oyama all waxed their chests and, though not pictured, down below as well.
I hope this shows the doubters that TMA, for decades has adhered to real wax jobs. This didn't start with the wax job Royce did on the early UFCs, guys. Waxing is intrinsic to real arts, ALL of them, not just the nutriding johnny wax lately types.

You may notice that the real fighters of the past endured (OSU actually means to endure, let us remember) the real wax job, paying up to $40 in a salon to have their hairs ripped from their bodies. Compare this with an example of the complete lack of reality based or sport based waxing in this picture of a so-called waxer of the modern era. Traditional wax arts have it won hands down. The waxing heroes of old knew their art and they weren't afraid to show it. I found another classic shot of Soke Oyama, here wearing a daring whity-tighty panty. I'm looking for the historic photos of him ripping the hair off the bull (some claim that this was faked and that he never dumped gallons of hot wax on a bull's ass, but we Kyokushinkaikan know the truth; perhaps it would be better to post that in the history forum.

I think we're leaving out the most important example of all.
Let's not forget the supple-skinned result of when a nubile-bodied disciple undertakes the sacred art of "wax on, wax off".
May I present to you the one, the only:

But what about Chuck Norris? He was like a god to us hairy guys back in the 70's with a full mane of back hair for the ladies to gasp in amazement at. Now the forest is all gone... and we are left without effective role models :(
Actually Chuck seems to be producing less body hair as he gets older.. is waxing the secret or is it because he's so tough the hair is scared away?
Or is this a kind of naturally occuring electrolysis? The missing empirical evidence for ki that will finally put sceptics out on their collective ear...

Hollywood has a special climate that makes hair magically dissappear.

That looks like a comedy show, he isn't using any thing Ive ever seen or heard of.
Maybe that is like some japanese "tom green" guy going in to piss off the sensei.
