Martial Arts Fail of the Week: Making “The Karate Kid” Look Legit


(These techniques only work if you SCREAM AS LOUD AS YOU CAN THE ENTIRE TIME)

Despite MMA’s emergence into world, people still believe training non-contact spaz punches and flaccid, weak throws against compliant opponents will teach you how to be an unstoppable, street-lethal badass—a wrecking machine not unlike, shall we say, John Kreese or Terry Silver of The Karate Kid franchise fame.

That’s right! This week on CagePotato’s Martial Arts Fail we’re highlighting (or lowlighting) the teachings of a Kung Fu dojo that presumably named itself after the brutal, take-no-shit, antagonistic Cobra Kai karate dojo from The Karate Kid. And trust us, these guys make the strip mall karate from the film look like a violent, unquestionably legit blood sport.

Regarding the actual “technique” in the video. Well, I hope all my opponents line up single file and wait for me if I ever get into a street fight…and stop fighting immediately after feinting a front kick their way…and then fall to the ground when I do a quasi sweep on them.

The school’s YouTube account has been dormant for three years. In addition to the video above, there are about a dozen others that are just as bad—including one with the world’s worst armbar. We suggest paying their channel a visit and watching them if you’re in need of a laugh or two.

 

If you see any video that’s good (or bad) enough to make the cut, let us know! Send it to tips@cagepotato.com

[VIDEO] This Flying Whatchamacallit is the Greatest Knockout of 2013 so Far, Bar None.


Kick Kick Boom – Watch More Funny Videos

We’re not going to waste our time debating whether or not this insane karate knockout is the best KO of 2013 so far. It is. We are not even going to bother finding out where this happened or who was responsible for it. For the time being, we’re just going to assume that Sensei Seagal was standing somewhere off camera when this went down, immersed in darkness and silently muttering “Let the hate flow through you” to the young gentlemen who was able to pull it off.

Instead, we’d like to spend this time determining just what the hell we are going to call this kick before Anthony Pettis pulls it off in his next fight: The bicycle-kick? The Hurricane? The Flying Dingus? The Roflcopter? The Pele? To be fair, the first and last ones are pretty much interchangeable, so help us out, Nation. Whoever comes up with the best nickname will receive an official CagePotato “I.O.U a shirt” voucher.

Kickboxer movie poster Jean Claude Van Damme greatest fight movies

10. Kickboxer (1989)

Say what you will about Kickboxer, but it delivers what it promises. Jean-Claude Van Damme plays Kurt Sloane, the European-accented brother to an American kickboxing champion (?) who travels to Thailand only to be paralyzed by the vicious Tong Po. It isn’t until Sloane seeks out the wisdom and awesomely unorthodox training of Xian Chow that he is ready to seek revenge in a brutal underground match that features no shortage of broken glass-encrusted fists and long, drawn-out screams.

Best Ass-Kicking: How do you prepare for the fight of your life? By getting drunk and beating up bar patrons while dancing horribly in pleated pants. How else?

Classic Quote: “I tell them you say they no good fighters… and that their mothers have sex with mules.” (Xian Chow)

9. The Legend of Drunken Master aka Drunken Master II (1994)
