They're ripping each other to shreds! Oh the humanity!
Thanks for Submitterating, hombrelobo! [Video Link]
Wrong! THIS is the most intense taskwondo fight of all time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxkr4wS7XqY
I’m not sure which is better, the epic fight sequence or the cheesy one liners.
Reminds me a lot of Biohazard: The Alien Force, some of the cheesiest cheese to every been cheesed.
Why are Rod Blagojevich and Kari Byron fighting Bill S. Preston, Esq.?
Because he’s obviously crazy evil and crap. Duh.
Man that was good/bad!
Was he licking blood of the knife at the beginning? That’s really not very hygienic.
Perhaps he had properly sterilized his knife beforehand? He IS wearing a lab coat.
Worth watching just to get to the crazy spanish guitar player in the “this guy is awesome” video linked to at the end.
Wort watching because of the Moymoypalaboy video linked at the end. Anything that reminds me of Moymoypalaboy is worth watching.
Wow, you were able to watch it through to the end?
Ooops, that comment was about Joe The Wizard’s YouTube link, which is generally horrible.
The Karate Kid: Year One
Most. Pathetic. Yellow belts. EVER.
They’re breakdance fighting
TKD: Still not a martial art.
But if it isn’t designed specifically to cater to inflated egos through surging machismo and unsubtle declarations of physical superiority to all others, it’s clearly not worth learning! You’d NEVER see toddlers practicing Krav Maga, now would you Sonny Jim?
That’s right, go play with your dolls, the REAL MANLY MEN are gonna go theorycraft about how few punches it would take each of them personally to shatter every bone in the body of a grizzly bear while taking suppressing fire from a rogue russian militia!
They’re not dolls!
They’re action figures!
I like to play with dolls:
Wow, you sure made a nice big dog from those two piece of straw. Keep going, it’s entertaining.
A friend of mine who did MMA before they called it MMA used to call it “Take-my-dough”. Good for the exercise, crap for actual fighting.
Except … maybe not?
How comes the Submitterator gives no links to the submitter whatsoever ? mmmm
Dean fixed this, I see … We will definitely be improving the process to ensure better attribution!
I’ll make some changes so it’s easier for an editor to find your personal site. Thanks for the feedback!
It’s funny. As a commenter, I get a link to my web site.
As a submitter, I get nothing nowhere. In http://submit.boingboing.net/author/hombrelobo there is nowhere a link to my website or even to my twitter account. That limits my interest to send anything …
The new Submitterator is still new. I’ll get something sorted out for this.
Cute, but I was really hoping for some kind of ‘Battle Royale’/’Hunger Games’ death match with spiked nunchaku, poisoned shuriken, and flying guillotines.
It’s all fun and games till someone loses an eye!
I think those kids are way over-protected for their Riverdance practice. A comfortable pair of shoes probably would have been enough.
That was my instant thought: Riverdance!
And might have made it possible for them to have a little balance!
LOL. This is great, thanks for submitting it.
Thread isn’t complete without a link to Finger Taikwondoe.
I had this same fight in the 7th grade.
I ripped my shirt off watching that!
Babies are terrible fighters.
Those kids have got the right idea. I would definitely give taekwondo a go if it was like that.
reminds me of a Polka dance at a wedding
Those are more violent.
Longest I ever watched a martial arts fight. Very entertaining.
It’s like cargo cult TKD; they’ve watched a bunch of older kids doing it and they’ve determined which parts are important. In this case mostly: bouncing, waving your leg at the other guy, and in the case of the child in blue, waving your leg at the other guy while looking around for a third guy.
You’ve got it spot on. I’ve got fond memories of the “waving your leg at the imaginary other guy while looking around for a third guy” drills :)
Usually I enjoy silly videos like this, but this one just made me a little sad.
You mock, readers, but this is where the 10,000 hours begins!
Actually I think you’re exactly right. Hopefully this culminates in Olympic medals and personal fulfillment also. Doesn’t make it any less funny.
Tyke Kwan Do?
(My brother came up with that. I cannot claim credit.)
I don’t know, I must be missing something. I just don’t get why this is a thing.
Apparently, you lack cute receptors.
Perhaps you’re right. I do have red receptors though, and if Boing Boing posted a video because it contains things that are red, I would still be wondering why this is relevant to anyone’s interests.
You’re not alone. I saw this and asked myself ‘why?’
Since we just had another thread about stupid movies, and now we have a little TKD, I’d like to recommend “The Foot Fist Way” to anyone who appreciates both.
Dance like a butterfly. Sting like a butterfly.
I wish the “referee” would have ended with “FINISH HIM!!”
That would have been awesome.
I’ll wager 400 quatloos on the blue one.
The one in blue could really take Chuck Norris by surprise with that back kick. Completely unexpected.
I really wanted to call Blue’s kick a “flying roundhouse” kick but you’re right – that was a surprise back kick if I’ve ever seen one.
This isn’t a martial arts fight, it’s a Cap-O’Reilly demonstration.
Think Capoeria, except Irish Step Dancing.
If one of these were my kids I’d probably yank them out of the class. Seems like if they can’t land a single hit then they’re not old enough to be even bothering.
They seem to be having fun though, which is maybe as important as winning at this age.
Nothing is as important as winning. Nothing. My children would only be allowed to do this if they were having at least twice as much fun as the other kids.
You give me six months to train and I could kick either one of their asses.
Sweep the leg, Johnny!
Good balance and timing, nice workout, what’s with the criticism people?
Red fighter > Pai Mei taught you the five point palm-exploding heart technique?
Blue fighter > Of course he did.
Red fighter > Why didn’t you tell me?
Blue fighter > I don’t know… because I’m a bad person.
Put bunny ears on them and it would just be uber win
There certainly are a lot of cute, Korean kids. ^_^
Well, they certainly deserve an award for ‘bouncing’!!
Kudos for ‘non-contact’ taekwondo!
This would benefit from a dubbed martial arts track on top http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSLPnpVUYtU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeLow4rfBMA
When it comes to fighting, what you need is a big fat belly.
I began by watching this on mute (as I do with many “cute” and/or “amazing” videos), but it’s actually a lot better with the parents’ giggling in the background.
Anytime parents are laughing at how pathetic their own children are, I’m down.
Open in another window … then mute the audio on the cute kids not hitting each other … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iof5pRAIZmw Guile's Theme (Street Fighter II) Goes With Everything.
Haaa!! Excellent suggestion.
I did it. I liked it.
Never mess with a toddler that knows ninjitsu.
I love these outtakes from the Matrix.
These kind of fights are the BEST PART of any TKD tournament I’ve been to.
Though a previously clear and cloudless day, small drops started to fall outside.
Someone TOTALLY needs to lay in this as the sound track – with the fight starting on the :25 mark
I am displeased after being misled by the title.
It’s like a Republican debate. Also, can Teletubbies kick that high?
korean river dance
already pulled … just wanted to show it to my kid :)
New link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ib9IERWM8fA
i can’t stop laughing. that little kid’s attempts at back kicks are awesome!
