UPDATED http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mCwbOdHg6s

okay a demonstration by a black belt i recorded. And yeah the vid is really ****ty so i'm not gonna post the actual fight. A friend taped it on an actual video camera so when he sends it to me, THEN i'll upload it.

Here's the chronicle of what happened. I was all set the fight the kid i did all the other competitions. Mr. Lee, his made coach, told me i was going to do it. At the last second the producers stepped in and decided to use a white belt who was given a "field promotion" to yellow. The main factor was that i already fought the kid in practice and soundly beat him 3-0. And my breaking and forms were also extremely advanced--my flying sidekick was being missed by red belts(one step below black). Anyway they decided that they wanted the kid to do well and not just lose quick so they changed it. Sorry guys. Although i can't say i blame them. When i did spare i got first with every one being 3-0 (once you get to three they end the match, although they did it different for the made thing). So First in Board breaks, first in forms and first in sparing. The made kid also got first in all three, he was in different division for those since he did the white belt form since he only got his yellow a week ago. And the "first" in sparing was the one fight he did, unlike everyone else who does 2-3 fights in a bracket. Although our fights are 1 minute long first to 3 affairs. his was a 2 minute per round 3 round fight.
And that fight was very....borderline. They were tied and the 3 round was sudden death. The other guy got a kick on him and some judges counted it (theres five judges, one at each corner and a center. Each calls weather they saw a point or not and then majority rules). They declare the other guy the winner, but then the judges confer a bit and declare that although 2 ruled for the point, one didn't see, another 2 ruled against it, and therefore it didn't count and they start over. The made kid wins on the second sudden death. It was kinda shady (i was pretty sure it was a point from the stands). The boards and forms he won are fine, it was presided over by the grand masters, all of whom were born in Korea and half don't even speak English. And would never give up their honor for fudging points for a tv show. These guys also watched the match too (although the normal masters were the judges) so i would've thought they'd speak up if anything was amiss.

Anyway I'll still be in the show in some way. I fought him once already and that segment should be in the show, although not as big a segment as the main fight i was supposed to do. I hung out with the kid for awhile there since we were next to each other waiting. He's a real cool kid to tell the truth. They actually do a lot for the show and for six weeks he's been doing 3-4 hour TKD workouts every day. He said the problem is he admits to being a little bitch during the first week, but he's afraid some crafty editing will make him look like a douche longer. Plus they always filmed him trying to do 30 pushups at the end of these 4 hour workouts when he's dead tired and will probably cut out the 4 hours of weight lifting and running and practicing.

oh another note about the fight if you guys watch it on mtv. They actually had everyone sit on one side of the gym to make it look like the place was packed.

And the made coach gave the kid this headband with the tao symbol on it in this touching karate kid ripoff moment. Of course as he ties it around his head, the coach says "this is special and just for you. No one else is wearing a headband." Of course I'm RIGHT BEHIND the kid in the background wearing that blue headband i have on." They did three takes of that scene though. In one, I'm actually putting my headband on, as he says this. Another i'm in the shot with my headband on. They did a third though where i'm not really in the picture (so it depends on what shot they take). I was talking with the kid right after that and he noticed me doing this and thought it was hilarious (he's been kinda fed up with the staging after awhile.)

end of update


Not as the whiny kid being made. He's becoming a tae kwon do fighter and they needed someone to fight him (I go to Marquette, but we're affiliated with the school that's running it). And since i'm a low belt of about high school age, i fight him for the "grand challenge."

I made a thread like this awhile back but i think i deleted it for some reason.

Anyway we had a light sparing match today. 1 round. And i think i will fight him again for the "finale" on the weekend at our school's tourney. I won 3-0 (a dad of another kid came up later and told me it was closer to 10-0, something i had suspected). Anyone want any more details on the fight or the show, ask. It airs in end of may. I'm wearing a blue headband. I also tried to sneak in a few UREH's! on my kicks for you guys.

EDIT: yellow belt btw. I'm upgrading to purple next week. I would consider myself a bit "better" at sparing then normal since we focus heavily on the college teams practices.

Update: see page five


i came out looking douchier than i had hoped

Sweet.


When you fight him go for the eyes, they're like the groin of the head.

Oh, and for awesomeness of it, try to get the "Lol wut" pear in the shot somehow...Like...get a friend to hold up a picture of it in the crowd or get someone to paint it on your face.

Ok, back to physics...Stay out of college kids, it's nothing but lies!

no punching to the head.

The fight was actually pretty easy for me. He doesn't have the flexibility to hit any higher than my gut. (TKD is almost all kicks). I just kinda danced around him the entire match and snaped in when i saw a hole. Near the end, i just kept going for head shots, not easy btw because the kid is FAT. i have to really extend my leg around to get around his body and on a path to his head.

As for "rigging" the show, the judges were pretty obviously weighing their stuff towards the kid. I had a good contact at one, and two judges called the point, but one waved it off for some reason. I got kinda pissed so i immediately snaped out of the gate when we lined back up and got a quick point. There was also a jump roundhouse that i went for his head (which i'm positive connected well). But he happened to body check me as i hit him so i fell down, and the judges ruled it not a point (when it still should've been). Oh well, the kid know he got kicked in the side of the head.

Ha, that's good.

At least, in your best child-molester voice, say "You gonna get raped" right before the fight. And make the face that's on that pic people always post.

Okay, just a note, i can't do a whole bunch of UG references. The ureh thing is the best i can do and even then its not much (everyone grunts when they kick to some extent. Its unhealthy to not to).

But anyway, i fight him Saturday again.
#33
**** him up real bad.

Then scream, "You just got made!"

Or don't show up the day of and send in a napkin with a drawing of a goldfish wearing cowboy boots. Claim to be said drawing and proceed to fight as a napkin-fish.
