      "Frank Bullitt" Rude much? I don't see you making videos. But to humor you: who learns ANY traditional martial art in 30 days? Next to nobody? Right. Sure, this is awkward, but nobody learns a full martial art in 30 days. Even the bone-simple boxing methods take longer than a month.

      You didn't learn shit within a month as your movements were not smooth nor powerful. How dare you act like you're legit in kung fu when you couldn't even throw punches or kicks properly nor did you execute those movements in a competent manner. You weren't even shifting your weight in your transitions or doing the poses correctly. Who are you sucking off to keep funded?

    As a kid, Iron Fist was always a favorite of mine (yes, I'm old).
    I didn't really care for the Netflix series, but I'm glad it brought Danny and Michelle together ;)

    Can we talk about how Michelle is actually a really good actor

  • chrisleebowers
    chrisleebowers 4 months ago

    Wu xia (classical Chinese wire-fu) is the ballet of fight choreography. It's the least forgiving, most anal-retentively precise style of movie fighting. When you throw a punch, it's not just about getting your fist from point A to point B, your big toe on your other foot has to be in the right pose or the whole thing looks wrong.
    I started training for stunts at 27, which is kind of late and old for this business, and all I had was a wushu background. What encouraged me is that all the other guys who could do *everything else* all unanimously agreed that out of everything they had to learn for their skill set, "nothing is harder than wushu!"

    How I am only discovering these videos now ?
    They're amazing ! You're so lucky to train with real professionals, and I think your dedication to your videos and your trainings is amazing !
    I know others have said that as well, but how in earth did you manage to work for buzzfeed, google, build your own channel, become a professional cyclist and make time for those trainings in the span of a few years ??
    I've wanted to ask, did you want to continue practising one of the things you've experimented in MK Ultra ? And if you did, are you still doing it ?

    You really should have done daredevil training for the blind portion of the MK ultra, then maybe iron fist after cause he's not blind.

    Season 2 is vastly superior to Season 1 (though S1 isnt all that bad). The main reason S2 is better is because Fin Jones (Danny Rand) along with the rest of the cast were allowed time to train physically for the show. Because fun fact for people who didnt know, Fin Jones was only given 3 weeks to physically train for season 1, while also he was given 15 mins prior to each fight scene to learn the fight choreography.
    So at 0:20 I found it funny when you Michelle said you were going to train "a month like Iron Fist did..." You actually got to train more then Iron Fist did hahaa

    You know that iron fist punched barrels of rocks, sand, gravel, etc to condition his hands? He also killed a dragon with his hands, but I didn't see you do that. Good video anyways

    You could definitely kick Finn Jones's ass, just by the first ten seconds of this video. That's a fail on Marvel's Netflix division.

    Not intended as hate,
    But as a "lowly you tuber" you seem to be either really well connected or you already have access to a load of cash. How can you afford all of these specialist trainer's?
