There some intersting conditioning methods. Was that a hammer he was hitting his knuckles with? Ive only see micheal jackson stand on his toes like Any chance of getting some videos of Tak with his weapon. Great finds by the way.

Thanks Marks. I've always admired Kubota's fighting spirit and style. He's a throwback, for sure. I'll try to look up some video on the Kubotan, Kubotai, etc. He actually invented a couple of weapons.
