    I was impressed with the ninja's plum flower pole routine - apparently he was good at that, if probably not at fighting ; )

    Also gotta love how they had RICKSON GRACIE BITCHEZ WHOOO!

    BJJ FTW. (and I don't even do BJJ, technically)

            Anyone else think that awkward angle he throws his hammer-fisty dim-mak horse shit is ripe and ready for getting tied up and broken? Think a sort of standing elbow/shoulder lock.

              I watched the rerun again a while back... I hate that fucking shirtless muscle bound meathead. Hate it, hate it hate it. WHY?

              For being such a dork, and twirling a live katana as though it is a cheerleading baton.

                Glen Levy, a stuntman. I'd bet his exceptional balance on the plum poles has more to do with his experience doing crazy-ass stunts sans wires than any ninja training.

                PS. Don't get me started on the TKD sword shit. At least it showed the viewers the difference between a master (Obata) and a dufus playing majorette.

                  I will use HammerFist to the chest (seriously WTF) next time I spar and wait for my partner to die. If he doesn't I'm suing Fight Science.

                      I enjoyed watching the show though, it had its moments.

                      He was also a small chinese guy. A 130 lb. guy will not have as much force in his punch then a similiarly trained 200 lb. guy.

                            Bullshit, size and muscle don't count for shit in real martial arts! It's about proper concepts, priniciples, and axioms. Not something so base (and effort-requiring) as fitness or weight!

                              Gotta hand it to that ninja guy for doing the plum poles, that was probably fairly difficult. But it doesn't really mean anything about fighting, sadly.

                                Unless your fighting on plum poles, which according to ninjas' many hours of watching Xena: Warrior Princess, happens quite often.
                                I think only idiots assume that someone who trains for the ring can't make the switch to the street as soon as things change. - dweidman
