Atemi Cast Network

The Atemi Cast has decided it is time you get to know the members of the network. Every so often we shall ask the writers, podcasters, and founders ten questions. We have asked that they answer the questions as honest as possible. We hope this will give you some insight on the type of professional people we have here at The Atemi Cast Network.

Network Member: Jaredd

Jaredd runs the Thinking Martial Blog and is creator/host of the highly respected podcast Martial Thoughts.

Atemi Cast: What is true about you today that would make your 8 year old self cry?
Jaredd: How much I behave like my Dad.

Atemi Cast: Are eyebrows considered facial hair?
Jaredd: No.  Facial hair starts at the nose level.

Atemi Cast: "If you had to buy Bruce Lee shots, what kind of shot would you buy him?"
Jaredd: Brandon shots...what, too soon? (Brandon Shot = 1/2 shot 
Jägermeister and 1/2 shot Wild Turkey 101. Sounds Gross)

Atemi Cast: If you could pick one food to eat for the rest of your life, what would you choose and why?
Jaredd: All nutritional needs aside?  Beer.  Beer is liquid bread so its food, right?

Atemi Cast: Name an Item that best represents you.
Jaredd: An art piece.

Atemi Cast: Are there female Leprechauns?
Jaredd: of course there are.  They just don't display sexual dimorphism
Atemi Cast: Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.

Tony - Every year Atemi-Ryu Ju-Jitsu holds a memorial Seminar to honor our teacher’s instructor, Grandmaster Moses Powell, the founder and creator of Sanuces Ryu Ju-Jitsu. This seminar brings together all past and present teachers from both Atemi-Ryu Ju-Jitsu and Sanuces Ryu Ju-Jitsu. Instructors and students from various other disciplines also attend. The seminar consists of three days of self-defense techniques.  The classes cover empty hand attacks and weapons defense, where there is always a theme and each theme addresses a particular scenario or a specific discipline.
Grandmaster Philip Chenique, creator and founder of Atemi-Ryu Ju-Jitsu hosts these events at 2091 West 76th Street Hialeah Gardens, Florida, 33016. This is the headquarters of the Atemi-Ryu System.

Super Hero Sunday

Batwing started as the Batman of Africa. The original Batwing was Congolese police officer David Zavimbe. He was given tech and support by Bruce Wayne and Batman Inc. Zavimbe’s life is one filled with loss, violence, and redemption. He lost his parents to AIDS. Orphaned Zavimbe was recruited as a child fighter in an African warlord’s ragtag army. He excelled in this environment. Even as a young boy he was physically gifted. Soon he was welcomed into the warlord’s elite cadre of killers. After a while Zavimbe’s conscience prohibits him from being a murderer’s pawn any longer. He kidnaps the warlord, escapes, and drops his former commander at the feet of his rival. He knew if the leader lived he would never get a chance to have peace. He found an orphanage and lived out the rest of his childhood there.

David Zavimbe resigned as Batwing and soon Batman recruited Luke Fox son of Bruce Wayne’s right hand man at Wayne Corp. Lucius Fox. Luke Fox has been the Batwing ever since. He travels the globe working for Batman. He goes where a Batman is needed and the original is unavailable.
Batwing is highly trained in a variety of martial arts. Batwing’s main weapon is his high-tech armored flight suit. The suit is a work in progress. The suit is consistently updated to have the best gadgets available to combat crime.

Batwing’s first appearance was in BATMAN #250. Batwing was created by Grant Morrison, Chris Burnham, and Yanick Paquette.  Batwing has several team affiliations. He is a member of the Batman Family, Justice League International, and The Dead Heroes Club.

Robin is the sidekick to Batman and his first appearance was in 1940 in “Detective Comics” #38. The first Robin was Dick Grayson. Grayson was a son of the flying Grayson’s John and Mary, a circus acrobatic group and was called little robin by his family.  While performing in the big tent their trapeze was sabotaged by Boss Zucco’s gangsters. This was done so that Boss Zucco could extort money from the circus while it was in town.

Bruce Wayne was in attendance when the murder of the flying Grayson’s happened. He felt an immediate kinship with Dick Grayson. Bruce had lost his parents in a hold up attempt years earlier. Wayne took the orphaned Grayson in. Later Grayson discovers Wayne’s secret. Bruce Wayne is Batman.

Soon Grayson was the sidekick of Batman. He took the name Robin to honor his parents. Robin became Batman’s secret weapon. Almost immediately Robin started making enemies of Batman’s foes; most notably Two Face. Every time Two Face looked like he had a win over Batman, Robin would swoop in and save the day. Robin became the focus of Two Face’s rage for many years.

There have been several Boy Wonders. Jason Todd becomes Robin once Grayson left to become Nightwing. Todd’s reign as Robin did not last long. He was killed by a crowbar wielding Joker.

The next Robin was Tim Drake. He used his detective skills to figure out Batman’s secret Identity. Drake was the first Robin to change the Robin costume.  Later he leaves the Robin persona behind to become Redwing.

The first female Robin was Stephanie Brown. She became the vigilante known as the Spoiler to stop her father the Clue Master, and was for a time girlfriend to Tim Drake. She stopped being Robin to become Batgirl.

The last Robin was the ill-fated Damien Wayne. Damien was the son of Batman and Talia al Ghul. He was trained as an assassin since birth and was given over to Bruce Wayne for his own protection.  Batman polished Damien’s rough edges and Robin once again became a sidekick that Bruce could rely on. Damien made the ultimate sacrifice to save Gotham proving to all that he well deserved the responsibility of being Robin and would have been a great Batman.

Out F@#king Cold

Rumble at the Rock
Rick: We have not done an Out F’N Cold in a while but this one deserves a look. This KO takes place in the United Kingdom at Say Uncle Fight Night 2. Knock out was during an amateur brawl. I understand that these fighters are fairly new to the fight game. What I do not understand is the lack of basic training both fighters display in boxing and kickboxing.

Macedo and Audin touch gloves and together they get into a fight stance where both hands are floating at chest level. There is little head defense shown. Audin throws a half hearted jab. She was not really trying to connect. Macedo lefted a leg for a kick but changed her mind half way through. Audin did not react to the kick faint. She kept her hands around her chest and under her chin. Audin threw another half hearted jab that Macedo cat slapped away. Macedo shifted forward and Audin faded back. Then Macedo entered with a round house to the thigh, and Audin did not try to block but accepted the impact. Audin’s hands never moved from her chest defense. Macedo attempted a straight left that connected but backed off to check her work. Audin’s hands now suspended at her waist, Macedo unloaded a round house to Audin’s midsection and again Audin did not try to defend. The women reset and Audin challenged with her third sort of jab. This time Macedo cracked another kick that looked like it was aimed for the bread basket. Audin went for the shield but she had been fooled and when her arms dropped Macedo adjusted and shot the kick over Audin’s low guard. The kick connected under Audin’s chin and out she went.

Tony: Well when I first saw this, even though this was an amateur fight, I have to be critical of the performance. I don’t want to come off as being an ass but clearly these girls were not taught to keep their guard up when fighting. This reminded me of a fight between two hoodrats and the result was about the same. I have to give it to Macedo, that was a well-placed and well-timed kick to Audins’ head and the sound of that impact was priceless. I felt bad for Audin, but she took it like a champ and even posted on facebook she was back to training and her chin was OK. I hope she got her head checked out after the way it bounced like a basketball hitting the floor after a monster dunk! Damnnn! Just watching the kick makes me cringe. The safety of all fighters should be the focus of the amateur fight promotions and fight teams. Trainers should absolutely make sure that their fighters are well trained so that there is less of a chance for injuries. Fighters will be fighters and are prone to forget all their training once they get into the ring. We know this from experience with our own fighters. You can’t fix stupid they say but you can try to teach it to keep it’s hands up.

Superhero Sunday

The Dark Knight, the World’s Greatest Detective, or the Caped Crusader as Batman is sometimes is known was created by Bob Kane in 1939. His first appearance was in DETECTIVE COMICS #27. Batman is one of DC Comics’ superhero trinity along with Superman and Wonder Woman. Where Superman is a solar powered alien and Wonder Woman a magically created Amazon warrior, Batman is a normal man. He has perfected his body through training and his mind with education. He is an illustrious strategist and always seems to be two moves ahead of his quarry.

The man behind the mask is Bruce Wayne, the extremely wealthy international playboy. This persona is the façade that Wayne uses to hide his extracurricular crime fighting activities. Bruce Wayne witnessed the murder of his parents and it was this event that placed him on the path of retribution.

Batman has many enemies in his rogue gallery. The clown prince of crime, The Joker, is the polar opposite of Batman’s serious dark nature. Catwoman proves that conflicting lifestyles attract and Batman has had an on again off again sexual relationship with this villainess. The Riddler is the mental challenger for the Dark Knight. There are many others each one being more outlandish then the next.  My favorite present day villain is Gearhead.  He is a low level criminal that lost his arms and legs after a confrontation with Batman. Nathan Finch had fallen into freezing water causing terrible frostbite and the loss of him limbs.  He had his limbs removed and replaced with cybernetic implants. He now has a plethora of attachments and armaments that he uses in his quest to exterminate the Bat family.

The first time the Nightwing name was used it was by Superman. This was during his adventures in the miniaturized kryptonian city of Kandor. It was here that Batman and Robin teamed up with Nightwing and Flamebird (Jimmy Olsen). This adventure stuck in the mind of the young impressionable Dick Grayson. When Grayson decided to walk away from being Robin, Batman’s sidekick and become his own man he adopted the moniker Nightwing. This was done to honor his heroes Batman and Superman.

Dick Grayson
Dick Grayson was Nightwing for thirteen real time years (1996-2009). He retired the name when he became Batman after the apparent death of Bruce Wayne. Grayson proved himself a capable Batman. He became Nightwing once again after Bruce Wayne appeared with a tale of being lost in time and fighting to get back to the present.

Nightwing started his crime fighting in Bludhaven at the request of Batman. Grayson now resides in Chicago but he is always on call to help out in Gotham.

NIGHTWING: THE SERIES EPISODE 1 [DEATHSTROKE] has been released. This fan series looks promising. Here is the Synopsis from Ismahawk Studio:

"Nightwing: The Series" follows the story of Batman's former sidekick, Dick Grayson aka Robin. After a falling out with his mentor, Dick abandons Gotham and everyone in it. Emerging in the City of Bludhaven years later, Dick takes on the guise of Nightwing easily defeating the petty criminals who infest it. But he soon realizes he may have bitten off more than he can chew when a mysterious and dangerous assassin only known as Deathstroke, begins targeting Bludhaven citizens. Can he defend his new home and the lives of its inhabitants from the most dangerous foe he’s ever faced!? Only time will tell in this epic 5 part mini-series!
