Extreme Kung Fu (and Pek) on Slant TV

3 Comments

Slant TV is Chicago’s Asian American cultural TV show on local cable channel KBC-TV. A couple weeks ago, they came to Extreme Kung Fu Martial Arts school run by Tony Marquez of Mortal Kombat fame to do a segment on the school.

I think it’s a great idea. I’m glad they came over to give the school some exposure. What’s up with the name – Slant though. Makes me think of slanty Asian eyes and that irks me.

Catch me doing a bit of my broadsword segment at time index 6:09

Badass Martial Arts

1 Comment

I’m really passionate about martial arts and not just about the style in which I practice. It’s really hard for the average person to grasp the level and ability of professional martial artists. These warriors and athletes are a different class of humans. I can only hope to attain a fraction of the level of skill they possess. My words simply do not do them justice. When I try to explain to other people what these people are capable of, I come away with the feeling that their skills are not truly appreciated and I consider it a failure on my part. I’d like to share with my readers my passion and adoration for what these people do by giving you a taste of some of the most skilled martial artists in the world.

I can’t talk about martial arts without mentioning wushu (aka Chinese martial arts aka kung fu). This is a compilation clip of various members of the Beijing Wushu Team in early 2000.
