    I liked the uechi ryu conditioning part, and I'd like to get some of the devices and training methods (from what I've seen, these are generally somewhat expensive).

    I can't wait for the Judo episode.

    It will be a completely different animal from the striking arts.

    That must be why they call Judo a "Grappling" Art. :tongue3:

    Don't know what to make of that fight. It looked like they both desperately wanted to clinch with each other, but an invisible force kept them from doing it.

    I'd say the most annoying part of the show was how they pronounced things so glaringly incorrectly. It was like they were doing it on purpose or something. "Carrot-takeas."

    Personally, I think the show is ****. The only thing worth a damn, sort of, is the fight at the end. I'm talking about all of the episodes. Each episode is run the same way.

    Start Show: Learn the good way to do everything.

    Middle of the Show: Decide it's not enough and go study at some temple and learn a bunch of shitty techniques that have no use in real life under the guise of, "We're going to this temple to learn the one technique that will help us win!."

    End Show: Fight, without using anything they learned in the middle portion.

    Overall, I liked the episode, as I have with every episode thus far, however the end fight seemed less exciting then the previous two. Not the entire episode, just the final match-up.

    I don't know whether it was the style, the ruleset (no head punches), the lact of mitts (which caused them to be more concerned with hand injuries) or the Bill the combatant. If memory serves, Bill is a brown in Judo, correct? That's probably why he wanted to grab hold of the Okinawan fighter and throw him.

    In all of the build up fights at the beginning they showed the kicks to the head, yet when it came to the final "Kumite" that was supposed to pit our hero against their Champion, There were no head level kicks. Considering the skill the 2nd degree Black Belt has, and the pace the other Okinawans fought at, I can't believe he didn't even attempt it. The build up talked about how devestating they were, and that they were legal.

    Baldie got off light.

    The only belt ranking I've found for Bill is that he's a brown in "Korean street fighting (Toa So Dou)." I know Chambers trains under Eddie Bravo, but I can't find a belt ranking for him.

    Is that really specialised, to only work on Korean streets? Do they have less lava than elsewhere, or something?
