  1. #31
    I just read somewhere that rass kass does indeed train - in filipino styles. here's some other stuff I found:


    saafir trained muay thai
    Ghostface and GZA trained with shi yan ming
    DJ What?! trains JKD and BJJ
    Rakaa trained TKD as a kid, in addition to doing BJJ now

    Will Smith has two Rotts, named Tyson and Gracie...Who knows?

    I thought I was bad for being up at 7 on a sunday
    but aren't you and hour behind me?

    "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.

    On the Wesley Snipes topic, here's a couple excerpts from some interviews regarding his martial experience (practicioner of Capoeira and Western Sport Boxing):

    Think you could’ve been a boxer?
    Oh, the trainers are telling you, “That’s great, you look good, you’re so sweet!” You punch the pads and they make it seem like you done punched through five feet of concrete, so you’re a bad dude. You start to believe that crap. “Yeah! I ain’t scared.” Until you get hit.

    What’s your favorite martial art?
    Sleeping-in-hammock-with-beer-in-right-hand-without-spilling meditation.

    OK, what would be your second-favorite martial art?
    Between capoeira, a Brazilian-style martial art I’ve been doing for years, and boxing, I’m in the best shape of my life. I like the rhythmic, the fluid, the explosive. The human body is an amazing thing. It’s really amazing to see what it’s capable of doing. I use martial arts techniques—stretching, breathing, and relaxation exercises—in my acting.

    You’ve got a reputation as one of the more badass guys in the movies today. Do jokers ever make you live up to it by picking fights?
    I’ve had situations where people in the street were acting like they wanted to start something or talk up a little game, and before I had the opportunity to engage them, other people, who are fans, take over. They’re, like, “Wes, don’t even worry about it, I got this.” And they go and handle it. I’m, like, “Wow, I almost feel like a pretty girl!”

    Snipes is somewhat funny.
    Lack of authority in his presence,I like that.

    Chad McQueen? I just read that, and I have no idea who that is. If you mean Steve McQueen, you'd be right that he studied with Bruce Lee.

    You guys aren't going to believe this, but I swear to God that Buddy Ebsen (Uncle Jed from the Beverly Hillbillies) is or was (don't know if he is still alive) a black belt (sash) in Kung Fu. I don't know what style but I have read this in Inside Kung Fu on more than one occasion. Bokine Woodbine studies under Shi Yan Ming. RZA from Wu Tang, Kadeem Hardison, and Rosie Perez have also studied with him.
