There are lot of martial arts software applications in market, but with high prices, which made me think of developing a free open source Martial Arts Schools Software. I was on the verge to make more research for the features for this software. I would like to make it a big one with lot of features.  The only thing that stands between is the fund for the development of this software!!!

This fighting video have came up online many times, the Shaolin monk vs tae kwon do fighter . I haven’t find any info regarding this video more than some forum postings, blog comments, etc with some assumptions… Anyway the shaolin kung fu which the Shaolin monk demonstrated is highly impressive. Its a rate clip indeed. If any one have other info regarding this please comment, if so it would be helpful.

I didn’t exactly remember the name of the shaolin defensive style (which lightly resembles the praying mantis). I was taught its basics when I was learning sparing in traditional Chinese systems. It’s a great piece of a galaxy.

Cung Le -vs- Shamrock & Liu Kang -vs- Shinnok

Cung Le -vs- Frank Shamrock & Liu Kang -vs- Shinnok

Lot of days passed since Cung Le had his last fight with Frank Shamrock. Cung Le entered  MMA as a tornado, destructing everything in the path. And at last he met up with the champion holding the Strikeforce title, Frank Shamrock. That fight was the one which I had waited for many weeks to watch. The one which I watched eagerly, in my toes. At last, the fight ended the way I expected. A high kick…

I was just seeing a comparison with Cung Le -vs – Frank Shamrock fight with the  pagodas of old fighting game MK4 ( Mortal combat 4). The last person who you should defeate is Shinnok. After that you are the champ, no fights… Like that, fans are waiting for Cung lee’s next fight for more than one year. Liu Kang was a Chinese martial artist, just like what Cung le is famous for. And the similarities between Shamrock – Shinnok and Cung Le – Liu Kang is funny. Liu Kang’s main skill was his kicks (flying side kick, Chinese legend Late Master Wong Fei Hong’s ‘No Shadow Kick’ / ‘Kick with no Shadows’, etc) and same was that of Cung Lee. Both of their fighting is colorful.

Anyway, am also waiting for Cung Le’s next fight…

Do any one feels that Boxing should be regarded as a martial art?

In my opinion, boxing can be regarded as a martial art in sports level, just like the judo, sanshou (sanda) etc. But it cant be regarded as a well martial arts thing since it lacks many many area which a common martial arts will have, one example is to kill, and to heal… What do you think? Please  post your opinions as comment.
