Is he making a joke of himself? Those t-shirts are ridicolous. I couldn't have come up with something more douchy if I tried.
Sure you could. Just get your average TapouT shirt, add a bunch of meaningless kanji, some stupid tough guy catchphrases, some self serving bullshit about Dux Ryu and gratuitous fire.
The danger here is, while TapouT shirts are douchey and gay, you never know if the dude could wreck your **** or not.
Here, not so much.
The 'eat your brain for breakfast!' shirt reminds me a little of one of those horribly mistranslated advertising slogans that ends up causing much international confusion and mirth.
Hey, anyone here have the graphical skills to mock up a decent-looking 'Three Dux Moon' shirt? Needs to be done, doesn't it?
Re: Bloodsport, from the FAQ:
My beloved dog just died, I'm utterly fucked up about it and this almost made me laugh.
Diehard fans who watch the movie over and over to learn to fight like Hanshi Dux should know that Van Damme strayed somewhat despite Hanshi Dux's choreography. Specifically, Van Damme's bread-and-butter jump-reverse-crescent-kick that he always uses to finish off the bad guys is just to make him look pretty.
I demand ^those^ be printed .

I watched bloodsport this afternoon because of the recent rehash of a couple of dux threads and because I had a need to subject myself to torture. The portrayal of young dux as retarded is the only accuracy apparent, unfortunately, despite van dammes best bad acting efforts, it fails to adhere to this character attribute.
I remember that movie being so fucking cool when I was like 10 so I refuse to watch it again lest it ruin my childhood.
It still is a very good MA movie, IMO. Unfortunately, I can't really be bothered watching it much now that the truth about Dux has come out.
Did you guys ever read the scathing comments that Sheldon Lettich (co-writer of Bloodsport) had for/about Dux over at the vandammefan forum? I linked them a couple of months back in another thread. He was apparently taken in 100% by Dux at the time and still seems pretty resentful about it...
