    nice to see a pasty white guy in the ring
    "George never did wake up. And, even all that talking didn't make death any easier...at least not for us. Maybe, in the end, all you can really hope for is that your last thought is a nice one...even if it's just about the taste of a nice cold beer."

    "If you find the right balance between desperation and fear you can make people believe anything"

    "Is enlightenment even possible? Or, did I drive by it like a missed exit?"

    It's simpler than you think.

    I could be completely wrong"

    Absolutely awesome commentary by the color guys. LMAO! Sweet stuff from Matt. So, do we think the other guy was actually injured in some way or was just sick of getting punched?

    One Humorous point

    Great stuff,
    Loved Polly's book. It seems that w/ slightly flabbier fighter we also get slightly flabbier ring girls! Whats up w/ that? LOL!

    I've just been playing emailpong with Matt...

    I was telling him how my book is the 2010 remake of his book.

    American Shaolin previews Karate Kid
    By The World ⋅ June 10, 2010 ⋅ Post a comment ⋅ Yahoo! Buzz

    The movie “The Karate Kid” opens in US theaters tomorrow. The original “Karate Kid” came out in 1984. It was the first of a trilogy of films about a white middle-class teenager on a journey of self discovery through Karate. In the original — the teenager, played by Ralph Macchio, moved from New Jersey to Southern California.

    Fast forward to the 2010 version of “The Karate Kid.” Now, it’s an African-American boy, played by Jaden Smith, moving from Detroit to Beijing. And his journey of self-discovery involves Kung Fu, thanks to a martial arts expert played by action superstar Jackie Chan.

    But there’s another level to this new movie. It highlights China’s role as an essential American partner and rival, both culturally and economically. Matthew Polly is the author of the bestseller “American Shaolin” and he screened the movie for us. (Audio available after 5PM Eastern)
    I'll put this on the Karate Kid thread too.

    Oh shoot, I just noticed in your sig that you are also selling your book on MartialArtsMart.com. I would have bought it from there if I'd noticed that, sorry. I just followed the Amazon link in your post.

    Just watched the tuffnuff fight video, bravo, when I first read the other thread and watched his training video, I was underwhelmed by his athleticism. I just expected someone who went to shaolin to be more...shall we say athletic, but its really all about the journey...in the words of the great Jewish Philosopher Borat: "Much Respect".
