I just watched Old Boy for the first time today. It was as good of a time as any, seeing as the remake comes out this week. I’m not really sure how I can express myself after seeing that film. I’m kind of speechless at the moment actually, as I’m writing this just moments after finishing it. I haven’t had the time to properly digest it all, all I want to do is sit here, with tardy laying on my tummy and drink this bottle of room temperature water. I can’t get up because Tardy would wake up and I just can’t do that to her, she’s my baby.
I honestly don’t know what any of this has to do this this street MMA, it actually doesn’t at all. At this point in time I can’t exactly get excited to talk about street MMA after Old Boy, it just isn’t as nearly as powerful or entertaining. There’s a nice takedown that leads to back mount, some nice ground and pound. Dae-su Oh, why have you made everything so irrelevant to me.
Check out the description from the liveleak page for may background info on this altercation.
A young man named Tai was being “jumped” regularly by the school bully and his 2 friends. They had beef with him because the bully (Brandon) liked Tai’s girlfriend. Tai was stressed about this and eventually broke up with his girlfriend and told Brandon he could have her, he just didn’t want to be attacked anymore at school 🙁
Tai’s friend, a martial arts instructor told him he should tell school staff, but he said they weren’t doing anything, They just stepped in the break up the fights and then sent them on their way. Then he suggested Tai stand up to the bully Brandon. Tai is an accomplished martial artist but is very passive in nature.
Tai was attacked again the next day but he made a scene of it. He called out the bully and said he was afraid to attack him alone. The bully wanted to meet after school so Tai told everyone to show up as witnesses and make sure he wasn’t jumped by the bullies friends.
Tai used Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai kickboxing to show his bully why its a bad idea to be a bully.
Bully “Brandon” (light grey sweater, red San Fransico logo), Tai “victim” (Black sweater/white words, smaller kid)
