Bullshido is a martial arts parody site, featuring September as "Wing Chun Sucks" month, and October as "Ving Tsun Blows". It makes you register, though. "The only forum on the Internet that will beat your ass for running your mouth."

Naihanchi or Tekki kata is one of several traditional Chinese-Okinawan karate katas whose origins have been lost over the centuries.

"A unique story on the CBC website details an even more unusual conflict. A Chinese Shaolin temple has demanded an apology from 'an Internet user who claimed a Japanese ninja beat its kung fu-practicing monks in a showdown.' A letter from the members of the temple, posted on the Internet on Thursday, denied the fight ever took place and called on the person who posted the claim under the name "Five minutes every day" to apologize to the temple's martial arts masters. Monks from the temple, which is located in the Songshan Mountain region of the Henan province, said they will consider legal action if he or she doesn't make a public apology."

Cool Monkey Kungfu Staff Form. Some of the tricks don't make sense without seeing the application, but obviously take a lot of skill to perfect. Other moves, you just know he would be smacking his opponent hard with the staff.

Signs that Taekwondo has taken over your life: When tripping over your shoelaces you bounce up into fighting stance with a Kiup. You answer your boss Ussss. You tie your bathrobe belt like an uniform belt; making sure that the ends are exactly even and the right way round. You go to sleep each night cuddling at least one martial arts weapon.
