We laugh: The Ultimate Fighter

We weren’t aware of this, but there’s actually a mixed martial arts reality TV show called “The Ultimate Fighter”. And it’s hilarious! This short clip shows Julian Lane after having lost a fight begging his fellow contestant to let him “bang bro”.  In the early days when first we had the idea of starting gongfu brother we were actually thinking about a big brother like reality TV show about martial arts. However, this kind of reactions could not be foreseen.

We like: Mantis Boxing of Ma Hanqing

Here some really nice and rare footage of Ma Hanqing of Beijing Taiji Meihua and Liuhe Tanglang fame. His flavor is so special that many call this branch Ma family Tanglang. I used to train for about a year with Ma Wei 捷凯 Ling one of the remaining disciples of Ma Hanqing when I used to live in Beijing. It really is very different from what I’m used to from Qingdao and adds a great deal of new viewpoints  to any Tanglang practitioner.

We like: Florentine Football/Calcio Fiorentino

Now this is a sport for real men. A battle of the districts. Like in modern american football there’s a ball, but here it doesn’t seem to play a very GKFX important role in the game. Fighting bare-knuckle all the more. Hence, the well built Italian men who look like they’ve been in the occasional street fight.

For a more cultural approach to the topic and some more scenes with the actual ball check out the clip after the break. Continue reading

We like: 2004 Basic Conditioning Practice Taiwan

Next in our “men who hate trees” series is a classic by our teacher Mike Martello (RIP). Mike shows a series of conditioning exercises for hands, OANDA arms, legs, and body. Many of which you can also do with a partner. The key is technique and body mechanics, which you can clearly see in this clip. Like Mike says:

The idea is not hit the tree extra hard, but let the natural body weight of the limbs hit in repetition.

As Mike used to say: Enjoy objectively!
