Everything happens but memories stay and pay it forward.
A Time for Everything
3 There is a right time for everything, and everything on earth will happen at the right time.
2 There is a time to be born
and a time to die.
There is a time to plant
and a time to pull up plants.
3 There is a time to kill
and a time to heal.
There is a time to destroy
and a time to build.
4 There is a time to cry
and a time to laugh.
There is a time to be sad
and a time to dance with joy.
5 There is a time to throw weapons down
and a time to pick them up.
There is a time to hug someone
and a time to stop holding so tightly.
6 There is a time to look for something
and a time to consider it lost.
There is a time to keep things
and a time to throw things away.
7 There is a time to tear cloth
and a time to sew it.
There is a time to be silent
and a time to speak.
8 There is a time to love
and a time to hate.
There is a time for war
and a time for peace.
Enjoy the present moment while it lasts ...
... because memories lasts forever.
I grew up watching his movie's but you know that those kicks were done by GM of Hapkido, Bong Soo Han! Master Fahy
(Handed you the soft pillow)
I remembered, it was a good movie but sad that he passed away.
Still good memories.
SPOILER ALERT (unverified... really?)
That really is too bad, growing up watching his movies is one of the reasons I ended up involved in Martial Arts.
Anyway for you to verify that for us Master Fahy?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_Bong-soo On July 4, 1969, Han Bong Soo was giving a demonstration of hapkido at a park in Pacific Palisades, California. In the audience was Tom Laughlin. After a spectacular demonstration, Laughlin approached Han about being involved in a movie project called Billy Jack. Han gained critical acclaim for staging and performing some of the most realistic martial arts fight sequences in a film. Before Billy Jack, movies contained at most brief references to martial arts, with fights portrayed by actors who had little training. With Billy Jack, Han introduced authentic hapkido techniques to Western audiences. In its sequel, The Trial of Billy Jack, he received a co-starring part where he spoke about and demonstrated the art, mentioning the art by name for the first time. Watch this clip closely and you can see the head and face of GM Han doing the techniques in the movie! Check out the photo and you can see that they place Tom Laughlin's face on GM Han's body! Master Fahy
That made me smile ... we got a fake martial arts Billy Jack in the movie ... cool !
The martial art is real, it's just that the kicking techniques were done by GM Han, not Tom Laughlin. I still liked the movies anyway! I'm getting ready to watch the complete set of them tonight. They used to call me Sgt. Billy Jack when I was in the service. Master Fahy
Sgt. Billy Jack..... Master Fahy
