    Well that Iai demo was pretty shameful, I wonder who thought THAT was good idea. On second thought, its the discovery channel, I guess I should'nt be surprised.

    Default Just watched "Samurai Katana" clip

    Man that sucked. I mean really sucked.

    I have seen my eight year old do better after watching samurai dramas on TV.

    What is wrong with this guy?

    My reaction was as follows:

    1) OK...no shirt...Kung Fu comfy pants...wahteva...

    2) Hmm...reiho...little strange but...OK at least they did it.

    3) OK reaching for the sword, real obvious...HEY LOOK AT ME...I AM REACHING FOR MY SWORD!!

    5) Next...snickering and blowing coffee through my nose.

    6) seconds later I could bear no more and just stopped the feed. I mean I am no master of the steel, but this guy makes me look good. Really, I couldn't believe it.

    My. Those videos I tell ya. Aren't all these Xtreme martial artists RIPPED?! There must be a shirt shortage in that area of the world! I never knew traditional martial arts have Olympic-style gymnastics! I can only imagine the ancient samurai practicing those flippy/kicky/flying techniques with all their armor and weapons on for the upcoming battle!

    (Sniff) And look at me. (Sniff sniff) I'll never be like those guys on the videos. (Sniff) Ever. (Sniff sniff)

    I noticed that, too. Just because they look good without a shirt on, doesn't mean that everybody wants to see them that way.

    I watched the Karate movies. Come on guys - give credit where credit is due. These guys are good. Put most of us to shame, I am pretty sure of that.

    Looks like an interesting show ... worth catching, anyway. One major problem I had: not one person using a bladed weapon was cutting with proper angle or real control.

    All in all, the video's where fairly impressive - good speed, obvious dedication to the styles and forms, good builds, etc. You can also tell that the people fight more for the excercise and the show (one of the video's commentary even says as much).

    Personally, I do not believe MA should be a show, so that part is a bit lost on me. However, for what they do, they do it very well.

    Congratulations!

    I got 100 on the quiz, and wish I hadn't wasted my time.

    That x-treme stuff is for wussies.

    I say that because what I do is Ultimate Xtreme No-Holds-Barred Battlefield Combat Martial Arts
