Neil vs. The Giant

Here’s a random post that relates to my life outside of comics/visual language (gasp!) that I thought is too cool not to post.

A friend of mine has been posting some of our Soo Bahk Do martial art tournament matches online lately. This is a sparring match from the 2004 Nationals Team competition of me fighting a guy we affectionately nicknamed “The Giant” (you’ll see why). I’m the small one in the red. We ultimately tied the match, but watch for my spinning back kick at around 1:40 in the video. The ref blocks the view of my body, but you’ll see my foot come up right to the guy’s head. Enjoy!
