woof all

nice new interface 8) ! there was a segment on the stabbing incident on a news show "balita america" seen on the international channel recently. it was a cool bit. they interviewed a cop who trained in serrada and he spoke about the defensive nature of the art and how it helped save his life on the job. they also interviewed a professor of far east studies, if memory serves, and he also put the training in context.and all the while showing serrada eskrima people training. they also showed the current head, gm vincent cabales as well. a bit of fresh air from the usual shrill sensationalism the media is apt to take on things of this nature.

Or the media in Kali?

Here's Benicio Del Toro talking about his HUNTED knife training, fight scenes and various topics:

cool stuff!!
the travel channel had some unexpected kali/silat recently. they were profiling some tribe in sarawak (?) and about how they were changing. they use to be head hunters, but for the life of me, i can't recall the tribe's name at the moment. anyway, they had some elders doing some kembangan with live blades 8) .

here's something interesting: a movie coming out next year called the punisher will feature a character that is supposedly trained in kali, bjj, et al (jkd?). the character is really cool looking and the movie has a big budget, so i'm hoping they could afford a top quality kali/jkd consultant. it's based on a marvel comic, so i'm not expecting "realism" as such. but it should be cool none the less.

I'm curious, wasn't there a movie already made on the Punisher (comic book hero). I think Dolf Lundgren was the star of the movie. I think  :?: , but I'm not sure. Just wondering

yup, there was that awful 80's cheapie knockoff that lungren did. the new one is being made this year has a bigger budget and better cast  (tom jane(?) as frank castle and john travolta as the principle villian if memory serves). the current adaptation is supposed to be a lot more faithful to the comics (cool weapons/martial arts). so much so that frank castle has his famous skull symbol on! you can check out punisherthemovie.com for some cool graphics. hopefully, they would have some production notes soon (ala the hunted) and maybe get the skinny on whose doing the training/fight sequencing on this.
