Enter the Dojo

Some folks are putting together a series of online comedy shorts called Enter the Dojo, and it’s worth checking out whether you’re into the martial arts or not.

This is the first of five available so far. If you like it, be sure to sign up for rape class and make your kill face!

Like any good satire, it has its roots in what’s really out there, from the corny, made-up style name to the colorful dojo inhabitants to the hyperbole of questionable techniques. Surf YouTube and you’ll find plenty of examples.

Like so:

Gotta love it when the local news debunks the claims, but tries to play it straight anyway. Bonus: Keep your eyes open for Stephan Bonnar in this vid. He’s one of the fighters the reporter brings over to test the guy’s claims.

    Yeah, EtD is hilarious! Those people in the other video really give martial artists a bad name, though, so I’m just waiting for Master Ken to go over “death touch” techniques. Hitting nerves hurts and can short out the nervous system a bit, but my Shorin-Ryu sensei knows all the pressure points and the most that ever happens is my knees go suddenly weak and wobbly or my vision gets fuzzy for a bit, or it just straight-up hurts–and those are pretty much the responses we expect from hitting nerves. Not once have I ever been dropped like Dillman’s folks demonstrate :P
