Movie Questions

When I started teaching Karate in the mid-1970s, people would ask me about things they saw in Bruce Lee movies. Sometimes I would get questions about the Kung Fu television program. Then there were questions about the Karate Kid series of movies. Later, children would ask about the Ninja Turtles, especially about their weapons, or maybe the Power Rangers.

Yesterday I gave a lecture and was asked if there really is such as technique as the five step death touch as shown in Kill Bill II. Ironically, that technique was used on the character played by David Carradine, the star of Kung Fu.

Oh well, the questions don't change that much -- only the movies do.
