niitsu kakunoshin,

Strangest I can think of or strangest that exists?
If it is the strangest that exists then I abstain from this one.


平和,

Really? You think that's strange? I practically invented that technique. Which way is the flip? If it's forward than that would be pretty rediculous. You have to flip backwards for it to to be effective. Wink

Seriously, I'm having trouble even imagining that. Shocked That sounds like something I saw in Sammo Hung's movie from 1977 called the "Magnificent Butcher" where he fought this guy that acted like a cat.

Anything stange that you can think of. Stange is a matter of perspective, which is why I'm curious what people think. I remember this documentary called "Dragons of Orient" where they had one "master" doing a style of kung fu called the "duck style". The guy waddled around like a mallard and cocked his head foward and backward like a chicken while he flapped his arms like a bird. It looked pretty freakin bada**... that is...if you were fighting someone doing say little bird or worm style or something lower in the food chain. Cool

I remember in this other cheeseball kung fu classic "Five Deadly Venoms" this one guy did Centipede style, and in another movie I don't remember someone did Scorpion style... the guy was down on the hands with on leg raised up behind them. Now I know "movie styles" are obviously not real but there is a chance that it may be based on some esoteric obscure technique someone "supposedly" used to do.

Frog style from Kung Fu Hustle.

Or... anything a Sammrai came up with.
(i remember a kid on delphi claimed he made a martial arts based on keeping a katana in a trenchcoat. His parents must be proud.)

There was a gentleman who advertised in comic books (what a way to learn martial arts) back in the early seventies. Anyway he proposed using a tearing motion around the back of the jaw, the ear, the eye as a form of martial art. Supposedly it would rip of part of the face of your opponent. Even if it didn't hurt them much, it was supposed to really terrify them during a scuffle. It's hysterical, but it made a real impression on me at 10 years old. The guy cut his beard into strange diamonds and triangles, and even wore a cape!

Who wants to throw rocks at a bull to tick it off

Chop off it's horn

And punch it in the ribs to kill it?

And yet ....

Are you referring to Mas Oyama? Or are you being pithy?

I understand that he used to pierce the flank of a bull with his spearhand technique. I never was very impressed with breaking techniques until I read his book. He had a guy break a board in a tub without a splash. He also taught his students to break stones. Pretty cool.

Nakandakari Lobato,

Another piece of Mas Oyama legend: He apparantly eventually got to a point to where he could kill a bull with one punch to the skull.
I have read one of his books and was impressed with his scientific explanation to breaking.


平和,

マット

Mas Oyama was amazing. To watch him fight you knew the person who he was fighting had no chance against him. However, due to the severity of his self-imposed training he would spend life after 45 as a cripple. One of my friends trained under Oyama's personal doctor, Dr. Gii. Who would tell stories about Oyama and the unfortunate life he was reduced to. His Korean name Che Bedai and they would make a move about him called "fighter of the wind" great move, defident recomendation to watch.

I wonder how many bulls he REALLY pissed off before he actually killed one? Laughing

Ashigaru,

My favorite Jewish martial arts joke is this daffynition:

Juudo: The stuff that bagels are made out of.


Baian,

That is awesome in ways that I can not even describe.

It's one of the top images at http://thefunniest.info/ (site Not Safe For Work occasionally). They had the Bruce Lee one, too. Wink

I think the Jew Jitsu guy's expression sells the whole picture. One guy you don't wanna mess with!

I'd probably say the Praying Mantis one is strange. My friend who plays Mortal Kombat keeps doing it and it looks wierd.
