    So a backflip is not a valid evasive movement?
    Damn you kungfu movies for misleading me!

    On the other hand, these guys still would have done a better job on "The Last Airbender" than that M Nigh Shamalamadingdong guy.

    What's with the Wushu references? Those kicks are VERY obviously TKD-based XMA kicks. Wushu swings, TKD snaps.

    I really liked the video. If I had been learning something like that when I was doing TKD in America I wouldn't have felt so bad about not learning to fight. At least these guys went to a little more effort than just setting a camera on a tripod in their gymnastics studio.
    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

    I assumed that was a show reel though.
    The sort of thing you would send in to Production companies to get acting work.

    I'm picturing Zombie Isaac Newton storming their "dojo".

    Surely there's better and more easily obtained sources of brains out there.

    Isn't it weird how I (and I'm guessing many people on this site) find this video boring compared to say a tutorial by Koga on gripping a gi?

    I was a little shocked. Sure, he changed sides quickly, but I guess even a dog can realize it has more in common with the wolf than with the shephard.

    I give him the names of some BJJ schools in the area, and we go our separate ways.
