Or something else?? The rythem and lead foot movements remind me of it.

Biggest thing I miss about my home country is the hyperefficiency you see in every part of life. Competition is stiff, whatever business you are in.

I live in central florida now and I get really irritated by the slow pace of work I see in various establishments and general low quality of service. The only thing that sometimes makes up for all that **** is when I feel genuine southern hospitality.

Anyways, that was a stupid rant. Here is the video in question for lolz. Discuss:

I was hoping the taekkyon would start when the owner came to kick his ass for spraying water all in his car. And I don't care what the video poster says, I watched the whole thing and water bounces.

Other important part of being Korean:

"I get water in car? Don't care, you pay!"

edit: Awww... You got the joke before me, Mr. Galt. I'm a sad Charmander now.

Apparently the guy doesn't get a drop of water in the car, and that is what is amazing about it. Other than the matrix-taekkyon like movements.

edit: water bounces? whats that mean?

It means that the water doesn't hit the thing it's aimed at and then cease to exist forevermore.

There is NO possibility that water isn't bouncing off the inside surface of that door and into the car. I don't care how strong his kung-fu is. That's high pressure and I watched the angles at which he was spraying. Oh, I'll agree that he might be getting a surprisingly small amount of water in the car relative to what you or I would do, but none? No. I'll not believe that for a minute.

Either way, if it is a minimal amount (i.e. about what you would get at a drive-through machine) he wouldn't have to use his taekkyon. lol

This reminds me of a waiter I used to know who practiced his Ba Gua footwork maneuvering trays of food between tables. Fun to watch and probably good training for balance, etc.

Um...I leave my doors and windows shut at the car wash. My car doesn't leak. There is zero water inside my car after washing it. Is the same not true of yours? Shall we call Xzibit and make an appointment for you?

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 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYCUkv82paQ)

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?
