Touch of Death? or Touch of BS
 
This karate guy apparently thinks he can knock out people without physically touching them. Another Scammer. Funny though!

This one's not a no-touch guy, but very scary:

Awesome Finishing move. He even used a napkin! :D

Guy looks familiar. Isn't he Hattori Hanzo from Kill Bill?

Yes, that's who that is. I was looking up stuff on him because he portrayed the karate great, Mas Oyama, in some movies about thirty years ago. I was shocked to read "Sonny Chiba, who shot to fame a few years ago in the Kill Bill movies..." I couldn't believe that. Sonny Chiba was enormous back in the early seventies.

The scene I linked was from his Streetfighter series, in which he played Terry Surugi, a guy whose Japanese father married a Chinese woman and produced Terry. The father was executed by the Japanese, apparently as a spy, but in his dying words, he told little Terry--about five years old--"Always be....a number ONE man!!!!" Then they shot him. Terry grew up half-Chinese on the hard-scrap streets of Japan after WWII and became very tough and rather amoral, developing a fighting style based on Chinese boxing and Japanese karate. He was sort of a thug for hire. When one of his clients refused to pay him, he took the guy's sister and sold her into prostitution. So you see some of the roots of Quentin Tarantino's films if you watch The Streetfighter.

Return of the Streetfighter and The Streetfighter's Last Revenge got hokier and hokier, like Godzilla movies, as the writers ran out of original material. I think it may have started as a manga. There was also a Sister Streetfighter film.

Here's one of the best scenes from the original Streetfighter movie, where he faces the old master of the Seibukan Karate dojo, who teaches him some moral lessons as well as something about karate:

Where is this Harlem? . Somebody needs to lay off the crack. The tai chi teacher is probably a pimp by night

Just visited the website. Holy crap 340 bucks for 90 mins? I guess he needed to raise his prices to keep up his daily crack addiction.

Here we are again by skeptical about some heavy duty power!

This is some fun stuff. I think we should have a section dedicated to scams and such.
