If you want to eat at a conveyor belt sushi (åè»¢å¯¿å¸ or “kaiten zushi”) restaurant, kids in Japan need to have their parents take them. Not anymore! Soon, they’ll be able get aboard the sushi train at home.
(Will be purchasing for my child, yes, thank you.)
If you’re not familiar with “Kiai,” it’s basically the Japanese term you often hear when someone throws a kick or a punch in martial arts. Well, some “masters” have taken the idea of “Kiai” to the next level and, using the Japanese equivalent of Chi, claim they can beat an opponent without even touching.
Watch the first thirty five seconds of this video. You will piss yourself laughing.
So, as the clip describes, this “master” wagered $5,000 that he could beat any MMA practitioner with his “Kiai.” As expected, this dude gets fucked up. ROYALLY fucked up. He genuinely looks shocked when he gets the first punch the face (no gloves either. Ouch). Then he receives a few more and drops like a sack of spuds.
Why would you even bother? Surely you must know your “martial art” is bullshit and, therefore, against a real fighter, you’re going to get your arse handed to you. I just can’t even fathom what he was going for.
I think a lot of martial artists need moments like this. I’m sure it’s relatively easy to buy a dojo, name your place “The White Crane Wing Chun Society” and then start teaching students without proving your lineage or effectiveness. I’m not saying true martial artists should go about kicking the shit out of questionable martial artists but, years ago, teachers would compete to prove that their skills were worth teaching. So many students get ripped off by people not knowing what the fuck they’re doing.
