Genki Sudo

The accompanying film is one I found on Andrew Sullivan's blog, but which is in the process of appearing on blogs around the world. It is of Genki Sudo and a backing crew of dancers. Genki Sudo is a practicing Buddhist and a practitioner of 'mixed martial arts', or at least he was. That he could combine a philosophy of peace with earnings from a living involving such moves as a 'near naked choke', 'a flying leg triangle choke', 'a heel hook', and 'punches' does tend to suggest an admirable ability to hold two completely contradictory ideas at once.

My increasingly flabby red-haired 外人 self sympathises; I haven't been to the gym in two weeks, but feel it is still important.
