It's a Secret Martial Arts technique called... wait for it... "The Deadly Swap Swap Hand"!

Man, you take your practising seriously. I wasn't altogether sure, but was that a classic pass you were trying to teach there?
Message: Posted by: Pakar Ilusi (Sep 8, 2010 02:43PM)
It was a pass...

Not "classic" one though... :P

I never understood how the master could beat everyone so badly with a punch or two and they are unconcious then with a couple words they leap to their feet fully alert. I'm starting to think they really were not uncouncious.

It's all done with Hypnosis Santa... Hypnosis... ;)

So that is why you wave your hands....

A guy I went to highschool with use to be in a lot of martial arts films. He tended to be one of the attackers getting beat up.

What language is it in? I caught "Salam Alekam" which sounded arabic to me. (The only Arabic I know... because it is actually really close to Hebrew ;) )

Nice acting and choreography... but is there a cultural significance to your beating up teenaged girls half your size? :)

Im afraid it DID remind me of an old Duck's Breath Theater routine... mostly because its such an archetypal scene...

I caught the Salam as well..... it is a Muslim dominated country.
Message: Posted by: Pakar Ilusi (Sep 8, 2010 09:20PM)
Thanks Cyberqat... :)

It is in the Malay Language ("Bahasa Malaysia"), the national language of Malaysia... Similar to the Indonesian Language and the Bruneain Language.

The guy who comes to talk to me after the beatings is the hero of the Movie, I had just beat up his daughter 'cause I'm a "baddie" Martial Arts Instructor. He beats me up right afters.

Yes... It is a Muslim dominated country, Malaysia... :)

I'm glad your character gets beat up. Hopefully, someone will post that scene. That being said, your acting is good. My Café impression of you is nothing like that guy in the film.

I notice you didn't show us yer arse whoopin'...the girls were lovely. I spit at my monitor you were so mean.

Haha Santa, the girls were cute. My assewhoopin' is not shown, just shows me afters with a broken hand in a cast. Should not have spat, now you have to clean your screen! :P

Sorry, as far as I know, none of them have been dubbed in English.

Those movies are fun to watch in their original form.

If my father was able to beat up the Sensei I had as a kid, I'd leave the dojo and have him teach me to fight. :P

As I believe Robert-Houdin once famously remarked "A magician is an actor playing the part of a martial arts instructor".

True words.

Good stuff you were a great bad guy.
Message: Posted by: Nosher (Sep 9, 2010 08:58PM)
Nice presence you have there, Pakar. Does papadom mean something different in Malaysian or is it a reference to the Indian crisp bread?
Message: Posted by: Pakar Ilusi (Sep 10, 2010 09:53PM)
Josh, Cyberqat, muse... :lol:

Thanks Al... :)

Nosher, it actually means the same thing. The Hero there sells Papadoms... ;)

You can use it in your oscar speech, no charge!

Seriously though, how cool to have a 'proper' bit of film footage of a Café member. Maybe Steve Martin or Nicolas Cage or Edward Norton are Café members (under pseudonyms) and could offer up something too
