    I knew an aikido guy that tried to circle around some guy while holding a plate, and ended up with some random guy getting his lap covered in spaghetti.

    YouTube- „차˜ ‹인01

    I'm at school so I haven't been able to watch, but apparently this demonstrates it even more. Title reads "Master of Car-Wash"
    He is 40 years old and have been doing it for 20 years.

    Edit: I watched a bit of it and damn! I really would not be worried about water getting into my car in this guy's hands.

    Towards the end of the video, a competitor states that he tried what he was doing and too much water got into the cars. He says the "master" guy took a lot of his customers away.

    The last 2 cars I've owned were over 15 years old. lol. My current one has a removable hardtop on it and I actually get pretty damn wet if there is a thunderstorm or I go through a car wash. I forget that real (aka new) cars don't leak at all.

    I really don't mind a bit of water in my car and seeing how that is Korea, that guy would be out of business if the amount of water is unacceptable to any degree. I'd be more worried about the fact that he is using high pressure water. Old/weak paint can actually come off and it can scratch things up. Thoguh most Koreans aren't your average shine-n-polish types..

    Definitely time for Xzibit.

    My current car is a 7 year old convertible and when I got it the first thing I did was take it to the car wash and TRY to get water in it.

    I still have to ask, where is the water going if not in the car?
    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

    If by 'deadly' you mean "make a perfect piece of toast with said flamethrower", then yes.

    "Surgical" certainly seems more appropriate than "deadly"

    if you watch the video, they show a slow motion of him spraying trunk lining without much water getting into the cabin. Its pretty amazing but I guess its more novelty than anything else.

    Honestly he didn't do it that fast. He does it while looking cool, yes, but not in the most efficient manner.

    Thus the speculation that he was a master of Korean martial arts.
