In what I can only assume is a particularly brutal test of discipline and fortitude, Tae Kwon Do schools across the country will soon be forcing their students to watch M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender. Wrap those wrists! Only you can prevent dismissive wank injuries!
SUCK HARD SUCK FIRST NO MERCY!
On November 16, in celebration of the DVD release of The Last Airbender, Paramount Home Entertainment will team up with the American Taekwondo Association (ATA) to participate in themed parties to mark the film’s home entertainment debut.
In addition, actor and martial arts enthusiast Noah Ringer, who stars as Aang, the lone Avatar, will take part in a special streaming video event, giving hundreds of ATA students the chance to interact with him directly. Students at select member martial arts schools will be able to pose questions personally via Ustream. Fans interested in watching the live event can visit http://www.ustream.tv/lastairbender on November 16th from 4:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. PST.
Ringer achieved first degree black belt rank with the ATA when he was 12 years old and is proficient with a variety of Eastern weapons. [from the press release]
Focus your Qi! Oh God, the sucking, it’s too strong! Oh and hey, Taekwondo. I was thinking. People might respect your martial art a little more if you didn’t let pre-pubescent actors become black belts. Just a thought. I guess what I’m saying is, I’m pretty sure I could kick this kid and Jaden Smith’s asses simultaneously without spilling my martini. Okay, it’s actually a grasshopper. This palate’s not a sewer, you know.
