Norris, Lee and You (Tube)

I've sung the praises of YouTube many times before, but I'll sing 'em again tonight. I decided that I wanted to check out the cool fight between Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee from "Return of the Dragon." Sure enough it was THERE. I didn't even have to pull the dvd off the shelf.

Lilttle Dragon was doing MMA way back - he wins via guillotine choke!

Joelamania and I were extras in "Invasion U.S.A.". We played terrorists who stormed the beach in the movie and trampled some couple who were lying near the ocean. Chuck was a real jerk to all the extras there those few days and deserved the beatdown Bruce gave him. (Man, does that sound bitter.)

Raf - LOL! You're right. Here's a technical question for you: Why do they call it a REAR NAKED CHOKE? I understand the rear and choke part... but naked??

Chad - Chuck was just nervous about you being there and he took it out on all of the extras. Remember he was still coming up then and you were already a DAAAAAAAngerous Man!

Craig, In the old days, chokes were designed to fight against armored opponents or practitioners wearing the traditional thick karate or jujitsu gi, but one can aply a rear naked choke to someone who didn't have those "handles" to choke with.

Raf,

Thanks for explaining it. Several of us had wondered and now we know!
