    Yeah, Yaozer. That's all thoroughly choreographed stuff.

    A real Kung Fu fight looks like this:

    choreographed or not, that kick to the babies look pretty damn real. I still think that hurts.

    If you actually listened to the commentary, that was the first year that competition outlawed strikes to the head, so it's going to be more like Judo-isque style than Kungfu.

    Shaolin Kung Fu is the BEST martial art in the whole university, and it is where the martial art originated from.

    The "Best" is debatable, but as for where martial arts originated, no. There were forms of martial arts long before Shaolin. Hell, Shaolin was kickstarted by an Indian Buddhist. Martial Arts in India and Africa goes back hundreds of years before Shaolin.
