    Enter the Dragon and Aliveness

    I was watching Enter the Dragon last night on AMC. Why AMC? Because i am better than you. At any rate, in the first few scenes at the island we see the three I's of Aliveness


    Introduce (should only take a few minutes, if not it is probably to complicated for the participants)
    We see young karateka or kung fu guys training lunge punches then the camera pans
    to the second I

    Isolate (Isolation sparring in an Alive way) -
    We see pairs of men fighting specific techniques

    Incorporate (Add into your total game)
    This is the totality of the movie. The 'real' fighting.

    If Mr. Han can understand this, why can't the rest of you.
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

        I thought Aliveness was timing, energy and resistance.

          Yeah, but only because he was too busy looking good.

            yeah, he's not referencing alvieness, but rather the SBG method of instruction, which implies aliveness.

              lol. Yeah it was a joke.

              Yeah Aliveness is the theoria. The three I's is the praxis.

                I was actually also watching Enter the Dragon recently, and I couldn't help but think about how compliant all of Bruce Lee's (everyone else's) oppoonents were. Remember that part where he gets the old guy in a front headlock and kicks him in the face? Well, the way he gets the front headlock is by picking the guy up without any resistance.

                And of course Blackbelt Jones got pwned. In every movie the black belt dies first.

                    Or when Jackie Chan waits in a headlock so he can get his neck broken.

                    Pure and simple blasphemy.

                      No, you're not. AMC and TCM represent the duality of what constitutes a classic; the yin and yang, if you will, of basic cable movie channels. While TCM feels as though anything recent enough to feature black people as attorneys or wrongly-convicted criminals is "too new", AMC freely shows Top Gun every goddamn Thursday alongside Friday the 13th, Part VII: The New Blood.

                              You leave "Fear Friday" out of this, mister. Our nation needs to be able to watch a heavily edited version of "The Puppet Master"interspersed with ads for oxyclean (tm) at 1:00 am. :icon_salu:911flag:
                              They killed JFK in '63, so what the fuck you think they'll do to me?
