Yes, of course Kali is evolving, however that's why the emphasis is on a single knife which is one of the primary tool for tactical units.

Here's my contribution to Martial Arts talk....I'm at 1:27 of the video, in the lower right hand corner. Orange tie.

No knives involved ( I am sitting on my ass most of the event), but I have judged pro events with Sal D'Amato, who is a three time Eskrima US national champion.

Chungdrag Dorje (Steven Seagal) actually has a very good sense of humour and I've no doubt that he would laugh at this video (though perhaps not at the monk killing/Dalai Lama striking parts). I've seen every single one of his movies and screen appearances (admittedly a couple were rough) and I can confirm that his entire acting career has been 'tongue-in-cheek'.

Did you miss the bit of his career that invloved sexual harassment and white slavery? That was a bit of a rough patch, thankfully (for him) he manged to buy his way out of it.
