Abu al-Zarqawi died and George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates.
He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the nation I helped conceive!"

Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed!"

James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!"


Thomas Jefferson was next, beat al-Zarqawi with a long cane and snarled "It was Evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence."

The beatings and thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the terrorist Leader.


As al-Zarqawi lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared. Al- Zarqawi wept and said, "This is not what you promised me."


The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 Virginians waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said?"

ack! i didn't know Tony Jaa's movie Sword is now cancelled sad was so looking forward to it.

will have to check out DYNAMITE WARRIOR.

--------

finally saw 2 Korean movies, CITY OF VIOLENCE and THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE WEIRD. both were awesome! COV is like the Korean Ong Bak, in that it takes tae kwon do and showcases it. beautiful onscreen. loads of action scenes.

TGTBATW is a 'kimchi western'. a recent western i want to watch is called a 'sushi western', "SUKIYAKI WESTERN DJANGO" dir'd by Takashi Miike (best known for ICHI THE KILLER, AUDITION, etc). this is nothing like his others. this is homage to westerns.

TGTBATW was inspired by Sergio Leone's THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY. awesome action scenes. The Ugly and The Bad steal the movie.

"You have to kill the lemon. And don't let any lemon hit your face." ~General Amnat Pooksrisuk

did anyone watch Travel Channel's "Johnny Colt: At Full Volume"? pilot ep. had Johnny Colt, the bassist of the Black Crowes, an admitted adrenaline junkie, visit Thailand. Gen. Pooksrisuk taught Colt some Muay Korat. FYI, Tony Jaa also trained with the Gen. this was awesome for the Muay Korat!

mainly the Tiger Walk was shown. some applications of the Tiger Walk also. and the Tiger Walk moves translated to knife! at the end of the show, Colt had to fight one of the other Muay Korat students.

woof all:

as suggested by Guro Crafty, i viewed the clip once this morning before i left for work and have some initial thoughts. will rewatch it when i get home. took me some time to register with youtube for some reason.

perhaps it's me being in the Family Man stage of life, if the odds are against me, and i'm alone, i look to run away. if it's just words, even if it's racial slurs, swallow my ego and get out of dodge. why take the risk? what is there to prove, especially if the odds are against you? even it's one on one, there are many variables/factors that may come into play later... hidden weapons, his friends show up later, legal aftermath, etc. i don't care if i'm a MMA fighter, a Dog Brother, an instructor, a grandmaster, a noob, an unmarried man with no kids, packed and armed up the wazzoo, etc... if it's just words, and you have a chance to escape/avoid, then do so. IMO, the single guy looked like he had a chance to leave the scene... instead his ego kicked in and he had to prove his manhood. i don't know the racial tension in that part of British Columbia... my cousins live in Vancouver BC, i will email them about this clip and ask. perhaps a member knows the area and already addressed this, i didn't read the thread yet nor watched the background clip yet... will read this thread after i post.

the 3 guys didn't flank the single guy... at one point, the 3rd guy shows up, not sure what he was doing... maybe parking the pickup truck... he should've flanked... the tunnel vision generally in these situations will not let the single guy pick up on flankers. one of the guys was wearing flip flops... unless you train TMA in barefeet and/or on concrete, if you are looking to go into action, don't wear flip flops. you see he lost one of them somewhere along the way from a kick or just running/walking.

the single guy actually did well enough with the multiple attackers vs 1... keeping mobile and circling, trying to get the guys all lined up so he has to only face one at a time

a few times the 3 guys swatted at the single guy... the single guy seemed to swat back... he dropped a guy with a punch, and shortly after that, the 2 guys pounced on him as the downed guy recovered and proceeding to pound on the single guy. perhaps the single guy should've stuck to lowline kicks to shins or something vs committing weight/posture to a punch.

later in the video, a car and a van pulls up... couldn't see if they went to call the LEO's or not. one of the drivers or passengers talks to the single guy... think he replied and was distracted, not sure if any of the 3 guys capitalized on this.

only recall towards the end of the clip, one or more of the 3 guys got into their pickup truck, and was about to close the passenger-side door, the single guy approaches that guy. single guy should've let them leave, get ready to remember details to describe to LEO's:  make of truck, license plates, what the 3 guys were wearing etc. but no, single guy approaches truck. who knows what the 3 guys have in the truck? baseball bat? knife? guns? rifles? beer bottles? gasoline and matches? etc. guy in truck could've tried to open the door to smack the single guy... don't remember if he did that or not.

that's all i remember.

edit:   after reading the thread, i gotta work on my memory lol @ me
320  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Movie Fights - The Last Airbender 2010 on: July 22, 2009, 09:40:25 PM
I happened to be the on the set of the M.Night Shyamalan "The Last Airbender" that is filming now for a 2010 release during shooting one of the main battle scenes. I had never seen anything like this before... at least 150+ trained guys doing these incredibly choreographed fights... same thing, over and over and over again so they could get different angles. What's amazing is that there were hardly any injuries. (Amid weapons and stunt guys being flown into the air with cables.) The parts I saw took weeks of longggggg days and, I swear, it couldn't have represented more than 2-4 minutes in the movie. The skill level was amazing. The guys who choreograph this stuff are really amazingly skilled... I just learned a great appreciation for the art of movie making (staging fight sequences). BTW, the set was in an old airplane hanger at the Philadelphia Navy Yard... the biggest soundstage in the world according to Paramount... the set itself (the water tribe compound) was like 4 stories high and a football field long.

UFC 100 in the books

woof all, sorry for not being able to post sooner... animated gif's from 3 of the fights from UFC 100

My thanks to the original gif makers and to my friend Ausgepicht for posting the gif's to his forum http://www.spladdle.com/forum. I uploaded to my pichosts to help save on bandwidth. Enjoy!




GEORGES ST. PIERRE VS THIAGO ALVES



GSP won by unanimous decision. Despite a groin pull, GSP throughout 5 rounds continually took Alves down and controlled him on the ground. GSP's takedowns scared off Alves' kicks.



BROCK LESNAR VS FRANK MIR

Frank Mir's best chance in round 2 against Brock Lesnar was this exchange.



This was Round 2 of Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir. Round 1 was almost the whole round of Brock ground and pound similar to the round 2 G&P.





DAN HENDERSON VS MICHAEL BISPING

Henderson and Bisping fought because they were the coaches of The Ultimate Fighter season 9.

Bisping, known as a stand-up fighter only, tries to take world-class wrestler Henderson down.



The KO that put Bisping to sleep.



Here's a bigger pic of the flying elbow/forearm after the KO.



Bisping was told by his corner to stop circling to Henderson's power which was his right. One of Boxing's maxims says the same thing. He paid by not listening to the advice.

i asked on http://www.spladdle.com, my friends there replied with:

Quote
He's an excellent wrestler. One of the very best in MMA.
Lately he's developed a dangerous standup game too. only problem if any is he lately has neglected his wrestling to "keep it standing" perhaps when he should have wrestled, but overall, the definition of tough.

and

Quote
He also doesn't mind to take fights last minute or without a big rest in between.

thank you for this. i must've missed this the first time around.

this was what i was trying to convey in the reality toys thread.

there are so many 'fights' within a 'fight' that it ain't funny. the legal battle can really be the next important fight after the actual physical confrontation should that have happened. hopefully the collective 'you' have avoided that confrontation.

SG,

Take a look at this:

http://www.survivalistsoutfitter.com/shop/itemdetail/catalogID/24694/Cold-Steel-Cutlery---Accessories/

I like them myself. It is a functional sharpie type pen that could be used for additional purposes.

woof G M:

just checked, it is the sharkie. i'm sure it's much sturdier than a sharpie... for me, too bad it's marketed as 'sharkie'... if they called it any name relating more to being a marker than being a predator, i would be more than cool with it. the connotations of the name may work against you when talking to a LEO or in the court. i am happy with my pen and mini-maglite.

346  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Re: Reality Toys on: May 26, 2009, 12:48:40 PM
woof JDN:

forgive the long rambliing reply on my part. replying with stream-of-consciousness writing and during work.

woof Guro Crafty, Kaju Dog et al:

i have made a conscious decision not to carry any form of blades.

Why is that if I many ask?  Are the laws in NYC that restrictive?  OR?

AFAIK, nyc laws prohibit any blades greater than 4". i used to carry a spyderco delica that is within limits. it was my EDC for the better part of 2 yrs.

2 equally important factors was in my decision... with others, the first factor is easily taken care of, but for me, it is not so easy. that is one of training. i have trained some fancy FMA knife drills, as well as some prison shanking methods. but i have not trained it to the point that i would be confident in my skills. also, if i drop my knife or it gets disarmed, will i be able to fight empty-hand vs knife? what if my own knife was used against me.

i am sure the members of this forum are thinking well, this one seems easy enough, do more training. i am still at a stage of my life where i cannot devote that much to training yet. however, how realistic would my training be for what would probably be a surprise attack? i am confident in my awareness skills, but who knows where and when i get jumped? i have a wife and 3 kids, maybe having a knife for an EDC may worsene the situation for me?  i have my family to consider because if i am not around, life would be much harder for them.  no matter how realistic i may be able to make my training, it will never be the real thing. it is not sparring, it is not rolling, it is not even stick training... it is bladed training. all training can be forgiving as it is mutual consent. the real self-defense encounter will be less-than-forgiving.

i will not lie to myself nor to others. i will not  lie to my family, i will not put them into a position willingly that will make life harder for them. i am not a knifer. i am not even a stickfighter, but i rather use a stick or baton or broomstick for self-defense should the need arise over using a knife.

secondly and equally as important to me is that i do not know if i can live with the reality of me having to deploy my tool in a self-defense situation when i deemed it necessarily to deploy. i do not know if i can live with the traumatic stress of the aftermath of injuring someone. i do not know if i will survive the legal aftermath of an encounter also. as i read about violence, the realities of self-deffense, soldiers killing, etc. i really do not think i am mentally strong enough to deal with the aftereffects of the encounter.

if there is something i know about myself, it's that i'm realistic. i will not lie to myself or others in thinking i am skilled enough in any aspect of the martial arts and my training to have to test it for real in a self-defense situation. if at all possible, i rather avoid the self-defense situation. i am no expert, no master, i'm just 'joe generic' and looking to get home safe and sound to my loved ones.

did i make sense?

woof G M,

i've heard about the cold steel sharkie, but for some reason haven't checked into it. thank you for reminding me about it! checking into it, that is if it is the sharkie.

Grateful to Chad for posting some Lyoto Machida info!


Grateful to be able to walk for 90 mins with my family after dinner last night.

Grateful to be able to jump rope while kids ride bikes and scooters outside the house today.
