Enter the Dragon


I was lucky enough over the weekend to re-watch all of the Bruce Lee movies (as well as a couple of the more recent documentaries); with my favourite still being Enter the Dragon. Love that film.

If it's one you've never seen, definitely give it a run. Quite apart from the '70s charm, it's a superb display of Lee's incredible abilities.

Anatomy of Submissions.Another great article by Leith Darkin - Anatomy of Submissions [.pdf, 70kb]. Leith not only takes a look into the biomechanics of the various submission hold varieties, he demonstrates the effects of those holds being taken just a little too...
Mario McKenna Sensei on The Applied Karate Show.Episode 12 of The Applied Karate Show features an interview with karate and kobudo instructor, Mario McKenna Sensei. From the site : Mario is the only western exponent of the little known branch of Naha-te known as Tou'on-ryu Karate, founded by Juhatsu Kyoda, the senior most student of Naha-te under Kanryo Higashionna, and a fellow student of the famous Chojun Miyagi of Goju-ryu. Having lived in Japan for many years, Mario sensei is a well versed practitioner of Gojuryu and Tou'on-ryu karate and Ryukyu Kobudo. A psychologist by training (with a Masters degree in Sports Psychology), Mario clearly works to balance both the academic and physical aspects of our art, in the tradition of Bun Bu Ryo Do. A great listen.
