Striking Stars: A Martial Arts Celebrity Spotlight


Say hello to yet another new series you can expect to find on a regular basis at the KarateMart.com Martial Arts Blog. With Striking Stars we want to take a closer look at some celebrities that you may not have known were martial artists. You'll see everyone from sports figures to action stars and hopefully be able to take a little inspiration from their stories.

Now let's get started with the very first of our Striking Stars: Ed O'Neill
New G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer Filled With Ninjas, Dubstep


There's an exciting new trailer out for the upcoming G.I. Joe 2: Retaliation and it's got ninjas! Ninjas and a dubstepped remix of some White Stripes. Honestly, this trailer makes up for the entire last movie. I don't even care what the movie is about, I just want it to be 120 minutes of these ninja fight scenes with this song on a loop. The Rock and Bruce Willis can pop in during the credits, like the outtakes scenes in Jacki Chan movies.

While we're on the topic, I've decided there are entirely too few trailers which feature ninjas, dubstep, or some combination thereof. In fact, as of this writing, I can count them on one finger. If I had to make trailers for a living I'd make sure ninjas were in every trailer at least once. People would be like 'Oh look! They're making a new movie of my favorite Jane Austen book!' Then in between the beautiful panoramic shots of Victorian England, they'd get a full helping of Snake-Eyes being awesome.

Potential lawsuits aside, I can almost guarantee double attendance through liberal use of this patented new method. Seriously, it could have saved Parker this weekend...maybe.
The Mental Game: Learn To Like Failing


Today marks yet another addition to the KarateMart.com Martial Art Blog, The Mental Game.

There are all sorts of articles on the internet full of martial arts tips that focus on technique. Learning the best way to pull off a successful spinning roundhouse kick or choke hold can be helpful, but what about the second half of your martial arts skill set? Of course, I'm referring to the mind. After all, a martial artist without a prepared mind is only working at half strength.

This series will focus on very basic lessons of the mind and look to apply them to the martial arts. Which brings us to today's lesson:

Learn to Like Failing

Redbox Review: Universal Soldier 4: Day of Reckoning


This post marks the first of what will hopefully become a regular series on the old martial arts blog. In brief, I'll be taking the newest martial arts flicks available to rent and reviewing them for you. What may appear at first to be a cleverly veiled excuse to write about the newest action movies is in fact a truly valuable service. A service in which I'll let you know whether said movies are worth your hard-earned free time.

After all, your time is valuable right? When two hours of movie relaxation could be two hours of martial arts training, it's best to spend one's time effectively. A bad movie can be the deadliest of bullets, killing hours that you will never see again. I am here to take that bullet for you.

So, without further explanation, let's get on with it. Continue reading for the thrilling conclusion to our thoughts on Universal Soldier 4: Day of Reckoning.
Dan Hardy Tweets Today's Moment Of 'No Duh!'


Earlier today, mixed martial artist Dan Hardy took some time out of his busy schedule to address the topic of PED's. That stands for Performance Enhancing Drugs (just in case you haven't turned on a television in the past month). While we can all thank Mr. Armstrong for the media's latest obsession with the illegal chemical cocktails, Dan Hardy did provide an interesting (if not the least bit surprising) insider's viewpoint of performance enhancers in the world of cagefighting.

As can be seen from his tweet above, Hardy assures you that chances are good your favorite MMA fighters are juicing. Shocking I know. We'll let you rest a minute while that sinks in. Check out the link for more of Hardy's tweets in the matter (that is if you're able to pick your jaw up from your keyboard).
