Style: No gym currently.
The long vid was pretty hilarious... I love the pencil guy's teeny tiny baby mustache.
The sparring was surprising though. I was amazed at the effectiveness of the kung fu head block. Every technique the other guy threw was unerringly blocked by the kung fu guy's head or face. Truly inspiring.

my mate does kung fu.
he jumped the other night round salford precinct by a couple of lads.
he seems to have mastered the head block, as well as the lips and nose block, and the infamous Eye Socket interception.
he looks like an abused panda.
he told me - perfectly straight faced - that the reason he came of worse was because when the adrenaline hit him, his chi was thrown out of alignment and he just couldnt get it together.
i felt like battering him myself.
i once brought this lad to the muay thai gym, which he afterwards commented was 'an alright style, but a bit too aggressive and lacks spirituality'.

Hmm, you could see in their faces in the clip. Notice after the "sparring" that very few of the KK clapped their hands. That would say a lot :laughing4

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

I especially liked the part where tiny-mustache-man told his guys to stop choking him with the rope AND THEY LISTENED. What amazing chi. ((REPLAY))

Great find! The ropechoking sequence was fucking sad. I've been choked longer in fucking BUJINKAN classes, for christs sake.
