I believe a lot of it can be used in principal though, thinking outside of the box is a valuable tool in any fight. Some of these non practical moves force you to think of ways an enemy could attack you unconventionally. So I believe they play an important part in teaching both young and old martial artist a lesson.
1) you're dealing with cultural traditions as well as ass-kicking
2) the principles may well be practical, if you know them well enough to be able to improvize with them in the heat of the moment and
3) it's good to be able to think/fight outside the box.
IMO if more martial artists (and fighters) had the experience of traveling and training in a wide range of styles in their original cultural contexts, the MA world would be a much better place.

As for Human Weapon, it is a good show. If you look at what else is out there, like Fight Science, Human Weapon is probably the best MA show on television.

It is just a job and you have to be diplomatic. I think that is a good explanation.

Yes, I saw him paired with Geller, and I thought- "can't we get rid of this guy, once and for all!?" As far as Angel goes, I think he's just another guy that's playing it for all it's worth, and from what I can tell, he gets a lot of grade A starlets/models, god bless him. Still, being in the same room with Geller reeks of Bullshit.

That's not humour, he's shamelessly allowing **** heads to promote themselves through him. He shouldn't be. This site stands against such crap. Diplomacy be damned.

Of course if it was me, ethics be damned, I would take the hefty paycheck and pay for more TKD lessons.
