Damn that was a cool read.


I just saw this thread. :)
The average Joe doesn't realize how technical real boxing or kickboxing is. They think it's
just two guys beating each other up.

It's way more technical than saw building and one straight punch from a guy like Badr Hari and I'd be unconscious for 40 minutes...

Yeah fer sure.


Even though the taller guy was the dominant one, I wouldn't dare mess with either of them. I go to the gym n stuff but that doesn't mean anything to someone who's a trained fighter. I'd get my ass kicked.

This is obviously scripted as scripted can get, but this is entertaining as hell.

Prolly my favorite Jackie Can movie. "Gorgeous" from 1999.

He fights with Bradley James Allen, he was the head stunt coordinator for a lot of Jackie's movies at the time. He's an incredible martial artist. These are my two favorite movie fights scens of all time. Not "real fighting" but these guys (Especially Bradley James Allen) have some wicked freakin' moves. He's one badass aussie.

lol...me too.

My favorite boxer of all time, Marvin Hagler, said in an interview after the Thomas Hearns fight that he "had blood in his urine for three days after..." as evidence of how much damage these guys take.

Here's one of my favorite kickboxers- Andy Hug:
