Is New Martial Arts Armor the Future of Weapon Combat?
Is New Martial Arts Armor the Future of Weapon Combat?
Not much (if anything) screams 'Future Ninja Combat' more than the picture above. What looks like a battle between two G.I. Joe super-soldiers is actually the newest brain-child of Unified Weapons Master, an Australian company that has its sights set on the future of combat sports. Their plan? It's called the Lorica, and if you think it looks like something Bruce Wayne would train in, you wouldn't be that far off.

Keep reading to learn more about how this one-of-a-kind suit plans to sweep the legs right out from under the world of combat sports.

What is Jeet Kune Do?



Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is a hybrid combat system developed by martial arts icon Bruce Lee, whose legendary fighting talent shot this pint-sized phenomenon to fame in the 1970's. Trained in classical Chinese fighting disciplines, Wing Chun and boxing, Bruce diligently worked through these systems, but went on to develop his own style of fighting known as Jeet Kune Do or, The Way of the Intercepting Fist.

Favoring simple, unassuming forms with seamless chic movements applied at super speed to affect maximum impact, JKD took a bold step away from the exclusively rational (and largely unrealistic) approach of traditional styles. Although not developed as an improvement on Wing Chun or his other training, JKD became an exception which bested the rules from which it had evolved, and done so by virtue of its multiple fighting disciplines and the resulting intuitive adaptability which characterizes it. Its efficacy when applied in real life scenarios created JKD's definitive point of difference; this being that it was functional for real-life street fighting, since it operated beyond the limits of traditional training of the day.

New '47 Ronin' Movie Trailer Mixes Martial Arts Fantasy With Epic Monsters!


The highly anticipated martial arts movie starring Keanu "I know Kung Fu" Reeves finally has a trailer, and boy is it worth checking out! From what I can gather, it's set in a fantasy world mirroring Feudal Japan. A grungy looking Neo Keanu breaks free from captivity, kills a Hogwart's troll, and teams up with 46 other awesome samurai to put a hurtin' on some Japanese dragon demons. So historical realism is obviously a priority here.

Honestly, I'm excited to check this one out (even if it did remind me at times of the bad taste left over from Sucker Punch). The action looks good and the cast is promising (it even has my favorite Shang Tsung in it). Now here's hoping the story is even half as good as this trailer looks.

The film is slated for a December release so I guess we'll just have to wait see whether we get a lump of coal this Christmas or not.
Martial Art Spotlight: The Keysi Fighting Method

One of the greatest things about working for KarateMart.com is that we get to meet so many martial artists who are constantly introducing us to new martial arts styles. Recently, a customer of ours told me about the Keysi Fighting Method. I had never heard of it before, but apparently it is being used to choreograph all sorts of Hollywood movies, so I decided that it would be perfect for this months martial arts spotlight.

 



The Keysi Fighting Method is considered one of the deadliest martial arts currently practiced. It is the fighting style featured in the latest Batman movies, Jack Reacher, and Mission Impossible 3. The Keysi Fighting Method made its debut in Batman Begins, and has since gained a fair amount of popularity.
