for my fellow forum members and others who are into martial arts i thought you guys might enjoy checking out the segment shot at the temple where i am a disciple, stan lee's superhumans came in to put our abbot's one inch punch to the test.

they actually did three strikes, finishing with the one inch strike.

this one was a little better than the fight science episode, which was practically a joke as far as any kind of scientific exercise was about.

anyway the ep is up online!

"Our basic purist premise:
ROBERT E. HOWARD, ENTIRELY ALONE, WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM ANY OTHER PERSON, CREATED THE CHARACTER CONAN OF CIMMERIA. NO OTHER PERSON OR PERSONS SHOULD BE INTRUDING THEIR WORK INTO THE VOLUMES OF HOWARD'S CONAN STORIES.
In essence, we believe that the work of any creative artist -- writer, painter, illustrator, musician, what-have-you -- is a unique expression of an artistic point of view. It should not be appropriated or altered by others without the artist's consent. No other writer has Robert E. Howard's unique point of view, and no other writer knows what Howard would have done with his character had he lived. Upon his death, his canon, the expression of his artistic vision, became fixed. Tampering with it now is desecration."

That was interesting, monk! Nice temple, too.

I don't much care for this kind of show when they try to put a scientific veneer on ancient philosophies, but I was sure impressed by your abbot's technique and strength. His classes must be very interesting indeed.

How does it feel to spar with him, I wonder?

Cheers,
