Gina Carano First In Line For 'The Expendables' Female Version
Earlier this week it was revealed that female MMA fighter and all-around martial arts pro Gina Carano will be the first to sign on for an upcoming action movie being touted as "the female version of The Expendables".

The movie is still in its beginning stages of production (a script is still yet to be written) but it comes from the same producers behind the popular Expendables franchise so hopefully we'll be able to expect something along the same lines as the well-received Expendables 2 of this Summer.

Check back to the KarateMart.com Martial Arts Blog for the latest news on this project as we find it. Oh, and you know we're going to be making our own recommendations for this new fighting female cast of action heroes, right?

Self-Defense Technique of the Week - Escape the Sleeper Hold
While working for KarateMart.com, I've been lucky enough to meet some incredible martial arts instructors. One of the instructors I've been privileged to spend quite a bit of time with is Shihan Albert Fabian, a 7th degree black belt in Aiki-Jujitsu.

Recently, I mentioned to Shihan Fabian that I would be interested in creating a series of blog posts on KarateMart.com that would highlight different martial arts self-defense techniques to help our readers learn to defend themselves a little better. Shihan Fabian was kind enough to invite me to his house to show me how to perform some great escapes on one of his students. THANKS ALBERT!

Without Further Ado...Video 1: How to Escape from a Rear Choke (Sleeper Hold)



Be on the lookout for next weeks self-defense technique!
Justice Dealing Ninjas Appearing At A Theater Near You?

"I'll silence you faster than a Michael Bay dialogue scene."


The next time you pull out that cell phone for a quick text, don't be surprised if a shadowy warrior materializes behind you and tells you to stop it. Sound crazy? A London movie theater is doing exactly that.

The Prince Charles Cinema is apparently trying out a program whereby ushers, hidden by black morphsuits will be on the prowl to silence any loud talkers, annoying phone users, and general miscreants that may be out to ruin the movie for the rest of us.

Interestingly enough, the idea actually began when Gregor Lawson became so fed up with obnoxious movie-goers, he decided to do something about it. Who's Gregor Lawson you ask? None other than co-founder of the official Morphsuits company. Sounds like a win/win for everyone.

I'll be curious to see if a similar trend follows in American theaters. It may seem a little odd but I'm all for keeping distraction down in a theater. Now if only they can do something about the people that have to get up every fifteen minutes and walk in front of me...

Did Someone Ask For 5 Minutes Of 'Mark Of The Ninja' Gameplay Footage?


Klei Entertainment's ambitious foray into the often overlooked world of 2-D stealth games has garnered some serious attention in the past few months. Mark of the Ninja has easily been one of this year's most hotly anticipated Xbox Live Arcade releases. And if the videos we've seen have been any indication, the hype is well deserved indeed.

If you've been following our tidbits on this stylish stealth game, you'll be able to appreciate the above gameplay video. Who are we kidding? Anyone with even half an inkling to stalk through the shadows as a ninja on a mission will get all giddy watching this footage.

Too bad the game itself isn't out until next month (October 2nd to be exact). In slightly related news, I shall be taking a week off from this blogging thing as of October 3rd. For that is the week I must make my official mark as a feared ninja by way of my Xbox.

UPDATE: So apparently Mark of the Ninja came out last week and nobody told me?! What do I pay you guys for?! Seriously, this game was an insta-buy for me after playing through the demo. Awesome. Just awesome.
