The concept of martial arts have fascinated me ever since I was a child. Since I was a short, skinny late bloomer, the idea of using brain and cunning to defeat a larger, stronger bully was obviously very attractive. Sadly, I never really got into it. Dr. Sexy knows both karate and kung fu and can whip a mean nunchuku, so he persuaded me to join him in one session at his kung fu class. Real kung fu isn’t what you see in the movies; no slo-mo, exaggerated flying kicks and headbutts. Everything is done with quick short jabs. I was impressed, but didn’t go back.
Still, you can’t help but be captivated by the graceful dance-like movements from a martial artist. The Discovery Channel has posted Flash video excerpts from their upcoming documentary, Xtreme Martial Arts. Take a look, I think you will be impressed too.
