    There's a great display of bench skills in the classic JC film 'Young Master'

    The point of using bizarre household items as weapons is nothing new. In CMA or in MA in general. You would probably use it the same way as a spear plus you could use a diagonal slash type attack

    Amazing new Chinese military technology...we're all doomed

    If war with China ever breaks out, I sure hope we have a solution for this:

    Actually. Thats a pretty impressive multi-function E-Tool right there. I have always liked the straight handled shovels of the "com-bloc" countries vs the tubular steel ones we had. BTW do we still issue that style of e-tool?

    Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious

    I figure fighting a group of chunners would be like water torture, its not the force as such, just the constant trickle of chain punches wearing down your sanity. -The Juggernoob

    3. Therefore, you are an idiot.

    That isn't an ad hominem fallacy; that's inductive reasoning.

    That piece of **** video was so craptacular I actually watched it all the way through. I wonder how many assholes broke their legs trying to demonstrate how to use that thing as a grappling hook.

    Impressive, but I wonder what kind of problems the exposed knife and saw blades make while actually carrying this thing for long distances through rugged terrain. Seems like both these edges would be suspect to damage and to unintentionally damaging other things.
