    RZA seems to know how bad at action Finn Jones is, so his sets are not that well lit. It's still the second best episode in the whole run.

    So I had some thoughts on why this show was such a steaming dumptruck of fail

    It may be the same here in Toronto. Frankly I was very lucky to come across NBDMA when I was a kid - since people who cross-train TCMA with boxing and jjj are bloody rare. The sad truth is that my...

    It's the "no sharps by mail" thing that's bugging me. It's a strip of metal in a wood case. It can't harm anybody unless a postal worker takes it out of the packaging and starts waving it around.

    I beg to differ.
