    Huh... I was under the impression that the idea that "kata is the best way to learn [insert martial art here]" and "[insert martial art here] is not about fighting" was a largely North American notion. I hope this is just a minority view among Japanese martial arts communities (Aikido notwithstanding)...

    You have been misinformed, I'm afraid. Most modern Japanese martial ats have at least some philosophy of self improvement. They also all have kata and consider them important. Even Judo has (2 man) kata. Of course, some arts like Judo and Kyokushin also have ass kicking requirements (randori, knockdown) as well which makes them well rounded, wholistic arts. But others, like some Shotokan karate, follow the too deadly to spar with contact philosophy and all the other bullshido we've seen peddled.

    Also, we should start an ongoing thread of good MA/Action movies currently on netflix's Watch Instantly menu. For example, I think Flashpoint is on there currently as well as some classic Mifune Samurai stuff.

    Ooh! Just checked out the listing on Netflix. FYI to anyone who hasn't watched "High Kick Girl!" (Romanji Title: Hai kikku gru!) yet, but it is available in both SD and HD (720p) streams. I utilize Netflix's HD streaming service quite a bit with my PS3 and HDTV, so I just might check it out.

    correction: hairy asian nurses #24.
    you can still see the scratch and bite marks of #23 which was: asian kiko plays in the monkey cage.
