        I can give you a four step formula for making your very own speed racer episodes.

        1. Look in a mirror

        2. Slowly move towards it, and without changing your facial expression, think about what's going on

        3. Occasionally throw in something blowing up, or the bad guy getting sucker punched, or a monkey doing something stupid

        4. Repeat.


        Before anyone says anything I HAVE seen Speed Racer. Toonami used to play it EVERY DAY as soon as I got home from school. I mean, come on, I was waiting for the god awful Freiza saga to end, they had been fighting for 2030498 episodes already, but I had to sit through every god awful Speed racer episode just to see more disappointing dragon ball z episodes. God damn you, cartoon network.

            Now that I think about it, that fight scene did actually have maneuvers reminiscient of karate mcdojo- x blocks for both kicks and punches, forearm blocks, etc etc.

              For the record, he is Racer X. If he didn't use X blocks, it would be massively disappointing.

                I never saw the movie clip before. If you want a serious post, somewhat-official answer on Shotokan-ness: you can't call that Shotokan, but I could definitely see how someone with a little experience with it could see Shotokan in it.

                There are a lot of pretty generic karate poses in there--just static poses though, the movement is just random hollywood whatever. If you did any form of karate with long-ish stances you might recognize some elements.

                If you have a random actor who isn't a martial artist in a fight scene...long stances are at least pleasing to the eye if you can do anything cool for the cameras.

                  This is easily the funniest post in this thread.

                    I'd rather chalk it up to the Wachowski's snatching the stuff they learned during their time on the Matrix trilogy and "putting their mark" on this movie. I could easily be wrong, though.

                      Thanks. I was just following your line of reasoning that the popularity of something is a measurement of its quality.

                      That being said, we are pretty much trying to argue over opinion. You like Speed Racer and The Matrix, I don't. Like you said, agree to disagree.

                        Are you kidding? Even Cung Le endorses the X block. He noted being surprised that Shamrock deflected his high kicks with one arm because he teaches his students to always block with two arms. I use an X block to defend everything, even armbars. True story.

                            True, but it's not exclusive to them.

You did yourself a favor in not going.
                              WRONG. Astro Boy, 8 Man, Marine boy and Gigantor all predate SPEED RACER (MACH GO GO GO) being shown in syndication in the US

                              *Fucking douche should know his anime history. GOSH!*

                                Give it time and they will make it exclusive. They wish to control everything!!!!!
