    "Human Target" fight choreography

    The scene in this week's episode between Chance and Baptiste was terrible. Although it seemed like most of the mistakes were made in the editing room.

    Chris Leben fails drug test,suspended for 9 months

    I thought the same thing. He did look a lot better, and I'm very surprised and sad to hear that he was using steroids to achieve that look. I would have expected it much earlier in his career, but apparently instead of going clean he just replaced one addictive, self-destructive mentality with...

    Boston Corbett

    If you recognize the name, it's probably because there was a Boston Corbett who killed Abraham Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Or maybe because you're a fan of boxers, it ran in his family and Boston was undefeated in his appearances. Local people may remember hearing his voice on WVNR...

    If I could get some insights

    I believe he's referring to Larry Turner. Marty Dunsky is one of the owners and instructors at the Dayton Bujinkan Dojo. I haven't met any of these gentlemen and so cannot advise you other than to encourage you to check them out for yourself.

    I did not know her, but I am so sorry that she has passed. My heart goes out to Jorge Rivera, his whole family, and the loved ones Janessa leaves behind. Fly well, lady. :asian:

    UFC and ninjitsu

    Why? Members of the Bujinkan have and continue to engage in sport martial arts. I'll give you that it is not an application considered often or a frequent part of training. And for any real success, a practitioner has to be dedicated to their sport and seek outside conditioning, training, and...

    I'm first aid, CPR, and AED certified by the American Red Cross. I carry a face shield for use in CPR. In my opinion, instructors should be certified in first aid and schools that can afford it should have an AED - and keep it well maintained. If you just leave it in a closet for years...

    OK, who do I trust???

    As an FYI, there is some controversy around Ninjutsu: History and Tradition. The basic gist of it is that it was written by Hayes and my have some inaccuracies. When an English language version of Kacem Zoughari's book is released, I look forward to reading it.

    Take That, Big Oil!

    We had a windfall profit taxes against the oil companies through most of Reagan's administration. This is not a new idea. Personally, I think an end to corporate welfare for all but startup businesses, removal of corporate health care costs, and progressive taxation would lead to a much more...

    Obama for president?

    I think that there's deserved criticism of socialist economic and political models. I fully support private ownership of resources. I'm more of a social democrat, although that's still a drastic oversimplification.

    Obama for president?

    So, it's called The Blueprint for Change. As you might expect from the title, it's all "this is how i will do this" and it's very detailed.

    Obama for president?

    There's two basic types of power. Hard Power would be such things as the use of military action or economic incentives. Soft Power is when you persuade others to share your vision and want what you want. Obama's entire campaign is a specific example of his amazing abilities in this area...

    Obama for president?

    I'm an Obama supporter. While I am considerably more liberal in my own political views, I've always been behind his candidacy. I think he has exactly the kind of leadership this country needs right now.

    PJ Penn vs. Joe Stevenson Fight!

    To continue the tangent, does anybody have a link to the content and decision of the appeal? I know they upheld his fine and reduced his suspension to six months, but I couldn't find any more information.

    What Do You Consider Pushups?

    Shoulder position is something I often see wrong as well. If your shoulders are up by your ears, you're doing it wrong. They need to be tightly down in the socket.

    Big Jon McCarthy to retire

    Weighs about 240, Gracie Black Belt, LAPD officer and trainer. Yeah, Big John would have done alright on the other side of the ring. I'm hoping to see him do widely recognizable stuff in the future. Thanks for the 14 years, John. Awesome job.
