    This one isn't a death due to martial arts per se. But still, getting slashed with a sickle in a karaoke club strikes me as so very Jakarta.

    Former martial arts athlete killed in club brawl

    Desy Nurhayati , The Jakarta Post , Denpasar | Wed, 01/06/2010 2:40 PM | The Archipelago

    Former national martial arts athlete I Gede Arya Heru Wibawa was killed during a brawl at a karaoke parlor in Sesetan, Denpasar, late Sunday.

    Arya, 40, was slashed with a sickle while trying to break up a fight between patrons at the Mirama Lounge.

    He died at around 11 p.m. on his way to the nearby Sanglah General Hospital.

    Denpasar Police chief Sr. Comr. Gede Alit Widana said Monday two suspects believed to have been responsible for his death had turned themselves in to South Denpasar Police shortly after the incident.

    The suspects have been identified as 40-year-old I Wayan Darta and his 21-year-old son, I Made Suastika, residents of Tanjung Bungkak in East Denpasar.

    Widana said the incident began when the two suspects arrived at the parlor at around 10 p.m. and ordered 10 bottles of beer. Moments later, Suastika began fighting with another customer.

    "The victim tried to break up the fight, but to no avail," Widana said.

    "They continued fighting in front of the parlor."

    In the middle of the brawl, Suastika fell close to where Arya was standing.

    "Seeing his son get knocked down, Darta got mad and pulled out a sickle he'd been carrying with him, and slashed Arya right across the abdomen."

    Suastika, carrying a machete, also struck out at Arya, hitting him in the arm and chest until the victim was knocked down.

    "The victim died from massive blood loss after arteries below his collarbone were severed," Widana said.

    He pointed out the victim and the two suspects were not mutually acquainted.

    "They only happened to be at the same karaoke parlor that night. This was a murder committed in the heat of the moment," he said.

    He added that the suspects could face up to 15 years in prison if found guilty under the Criminal Code.

    Arya, a resident of Banjar Kaja in Sesetan, was a gold medalist in the 1996 and 2000 National Games (PON).

    His sister, Ni Made Arya Dwi Damayanti, said he worked as a trainer for athletes in the provincial martial arts squad.

    Arya also trained several national-level athletes for the 2008 PON in Samarinda, East Kalimantan.

    pro wrestling count as a MA?

    an interesting list here, not sure how many died at all while training or performing.

    many of these deaths of course have drugs involved....thus the issue of MA meets sport meets performance enhancing drugs.

    I'm a little concerned that:

    a) you are watching that much wrestling a

    and

    b) your records are that meticulous

    I had a WTF momment reading this

    "Seeing his son get knocked down, Darta got mad and pulled out a sickle he'd been carrying with him, and slashed Arya right across the abdomen."

    Suastika, carrying a machete, also struck out at Arya, hitting him in the arm and chest until the victim was knocked down.

    Having never been to Jakarta myself, I wasn't sure how common it was for people to be packing sickles and machetes when they head to the bar. But, definately something you don't expect to see living in the US.

    We were taught to kick the hand and never to slap the foot. This was part of our iron palm training.

    funny side thing about that ( we kind of do a combo of kicking and slapping, i learned my wushu from Tran Sifu here it says hes been openly teaching for 15 years...its said that for about 10 years or more lol ) the reason i started tucking my kwan/feiyu laces into the sides is from lodging one of those little plastic lace enders into my hand.

    sports physiology and medicine.

    wushu or kung fu is much related to chinese medicine since long time ago.

    --

    it would be nice to have

    wushu or kung fu physiology and medicine

    other than qi theory and qi gong

    there are many researches going on with qi and qi gong

    maybe the western science and medicine need to look at wushu or kung fu, too.

    Suspicious given the timing...?
    Wushu player’s body not found, search stopped
    Posted: Sep 04, 2011 at 0211 hrs IST

    Lucknow The body of 21-year-old wushu player Sunny Dhanuk who reportedly jumped into the Gomti river on August 23 could not be traced. Sunny’s bag with clothes, a motorcycle and shoes were found near the barrage.

    Boatmen and divers who were pressed into service could not trace him and they have now stopped the search operation. Nitin Tiwari , Additional Superintendent of Police, Trans-Gomti Nagar, said: “We searched for the body but it could not be traced”.

    N Sirohi, Sub-Inspector at Gomti Nagar police station, said: “The family has not filed any missing report with the police.” He added that they had come to know that the boy was depressed because he felt jilted by a girl.

    However, Sunny’s father, Dinesh, claimed that he had filed an application at the office ofthe DM and DIG, Lucknow, requesting them to trace his son. “We are clueless about the whereabouts of Sunny. The police have not contacted us since the incident. I am not aware whether the police is investigating the incident or not,” he added.

    A national-level Wushu player, Sunny is elder son of Dinesh, a government employee. A resident of Teli Bagh area, Sunny on August 23 called on his brother-in-law Sanjay’s phone and told his sister Aneeta to take his bike and bag from Gomti Barrage. Sanjay rushed to the spot. Sunny’s bag with clothes, a motorcycle and shoes was found near the barrage.
