Kick ass!
This rocks. (google video)

Tony "God of the Knee" Jaa vs Lateef "Future Fro Matt" Crowder. Capoeira vs. Muay Thai. This is a scene from Jaa's newest movie Tom yum googn, directed by the same guy that did Ong Bak.

When will this movie exist in America?

That is so cool. It really does seem that Capoeira is just... an advantage, with all the position changy, though you probably get more tired quicker, so that could be the downfall. Huh. I wanna see that movie now.

Yeah. Capoeira as an actual defensive art requires tons and tonnes of endurance. Scary.

Still curious about taking a class. I think I may have the upper body strength so as not to feel like a total loser in the class. However, I don't like the forced group play in every class.

the problem is low kicks break capoeira

Speed as well. If you're not quick with capoeira it's really easy to kick a person out of most mid to upper attacks.

He looks freaky in the first Muay Thai kata he does in Ong Bok. A weird relief of tendon and sinew and bone.

But yea. He's pretty amazing. I love that the movie doesn't take itself too seriously. He jumps through BARBED WIRE.

That movie is one of my absolute favorites. And how could we forget Humlai (sp?) throwing curry paste at people?

The only problem I had with "Ong Bak" was how everything made no sense the more you thought about it. Okay, and how one of his competitors at one point was a guy who threw stuff. Otherwise, yes, I can see this movie coming out as long as Hollywood is willing to continue fueling the Kung Fu flick phase.

That icon deserves acknowledgement.

Holy crap! You emerge from the studio.

It's the best MS Paint icon I've ever done.

You can take it if you like. :)

It's so big and cold out here <=(
Back in I go.
Truly though, work of art.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 16th, 2006 12:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hehe. It's big enough for everyone here.
Hmm. That's just a silly entendre.
