    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    fighting like the dark knight

    Black Belt Magazine (I swear I don't normally read BBMag) did an article on the Keysi (sp?) Fighting Method (KFM) that supposedly Christian Bale and Heath Ledger trained in for work in Batman The Dark Knight. Does anyone have any experience with this training? They made it sound like realistic, no movement except one that is functional and practical type training. However from what it looks like in the movie it looks like typical Batman moves. Sweeping arm movements, lots of downward elbow strikes (good set up to shoot daggers from your forearm armour). Really cool hardcore Batman combat, but not really functional in my opinion. Just curious if KFM has popped up anywhere outside of Hollywood or if it is just a theatrical thing.

    yea i thought this might belong in YMAS but I didn't know enough about KFM so I wasn't sure. The new Batman franchise is great in my opinion, but I guess I wouldn't want to count on any of those moves myself

    I jumped up in the theatre as it happened, and screamed ZHJIU ZHJITSUUUU!!! Jk, but it was pretty sweet, his form kinda sucked tho, too much forearm across the windpipe, IMO.
