If an XL2 was on the line, Chuck might as well throw in the towel before the match is signed. :)

I trained for a few years in the martial arts, before I realized that all martial arts train to fight against themselves, and untrained assailants, but NONE of them teach how to defend against a WWF Pro-Wrestling style opponent.
Try and kick your way out of my Jacknife Powerbomb Chuck!!! :)

Chuck Norris was the original Bad ass guys. Before the movies, as a 19 year old kid in the air force. He fought full contact matches in the late 50's with "old school" fighters in Korea and Japan for a number of years and was undefeated.

Bad ass.
Guess we all have to make a buck somehow these days.

Chucks original style was tang soo do, Korean, pre dates tae kwan do with more circular moves. (it was one of the first styles I trained in). He was stationed in Korea like so many in the Air Force.

Jeet Kune Do was Bruce Lee's style, mainly consisting of wing chun, hung gar, fencing and western boxing.

I read a book about it years ago. I remember he had the
1" punch and the 3" punch, which I believe he gave
impressive demonstrations of.

Those short punches aren't magic. They just require "fajing" (explosion).

Although I have always wanted to say "Your Crane style is no match for my Tiger Claw. Prepare to be defeated! HA HA HA HA HA HA!"

That's why Winnipeg is a good place to train, or study. Inside the kwoon (school) is warm. Tiger Claw is also the largest such school in Canada.

Huh? What?

Martin,

What is this mysterious and enigmatic video technique called

"instant sex"?

Instant sex was originally when you fed two identical streams of video through a video mixer and you blurred the top layer and made it transparent on top of the original video. Invented by David Fincher for George Michaels "Freedom" video in the early 90's.

You can do it in any NLE by just placing a copy of the clip your working with above it and defocus it an add some type of transparency (whatever fit's the shot and your taste best). There are also a lot of filters that does the instant sex thing without the manual fiddling. As seen in millions of wedding videos. It's probably one of the most over used effects and very few use it tastfully (like Fincher did). Most people just crank up the blur and smear everything out into a big soft...yuck...

The thing is with instant sex that it can be used in a smart way that fools the eye that low res video is actually of higher res and has more lattitude. You see it once every ten thousand times it's used. Star Wars EPII is a good example of instant sex used that way. A lot of animation studios use it to give more variety to the end result and make it less flat. Instant sex can be beautiful and butt ugly.
