Penguin Page

I found this web page on rec.martial-arts:

http://n.ethz.ch/student/mkos/pinguin.swf

Click once to make the penguin drop; click again to see if you can get the polar bear to hit the penguin and send it flying.

It may be the only thing more addictive than Aikido.

Don't say I didn't warn you!

Re: Penguin Page

This penguin has obviously never taken ukemi in it's life.... needs to work on those forward rolls... i can't imagine what it must feel like to hit the gound with your face like that... oh wait... yes i can...

Re: Penguin Page

...OK, how far have you drove the penquin on the fly, with him NOT skidding, but sticking in the ground like a lawn jart?

...my all-time best is 207.5!!!

Re: Penguin Page

Beats me, my best for those was 205.2 - but I can claim a smooth 200.00 exactly, so I'm claiming the accuracy prize...
