It’s been a while since we’ve had a Martial Arts Fail of the Week here on CagePotato.
First we were busy crafting the 95 Theses of MMA.
Now we’re busy with another magic, top secret project that likely won’t surface for a few weeks at the very earliest. But rest assured, we have our top men working on it…Top. Men.
As a result, we haven’t really had the time to delve through YouTube’s abundance of martial arts vids and expose hilarious frauds and fails. Thankfully, a Twitter-friend (@BurritoBrosShit) tipped us off to the video we’re presenting today: A Korean Systema instructor showing how much of a bad-ass he is by beating up compliant training partners dressed as bikers. One of them is dressed as Marty McFly from Back to the Future.
The video is complete with bullshit joint locks and the typical stuff you see fraud martial arts instructors peddle: Magic punches that incapacitate in one shot, offensive flurries that assume the enemy will make no attempt to counter and defend, and knife defenses that require the attacker to have the reaction time of a lobotomized sloth to pull off right.
Oh yeah, and try the stunt he does with the motorcycle helmet without hurting your hand.
If you see any video that’s good (or bad) enough to make the cut, let us know! Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
