Martial arts students attack their instructor

Martial arts student Mon Kee Lee gives his Sensei a flying kick to the head after the instructor became too harsh with a fellow student.

In martial arts, it is very important that the student respects his teacher. If the student-teacher relationship is not built on a solid foundation, resentment can build. For instance, you might just get tired of the old Sensei bossing you around all day, making you do push-ups when you’re tired, or make you constantly practice fancy taekwondo kicks that would be totally useless in a real fight.

However, the absolute worst is when your Sensei takes you to the mall on Saturday morning and has you do martial arts demonstrations for donations, then instead of using the money to buy some new gym equipment, he uses it to buy World of Warcraft’s Wrath of the Lich King expansion pack. Hate it when that happens… old bastard.

“Art of War 15: Ueyama vs. Aohailin” took place Saturday, Nov. 28, 2009, at the National Olympic Sports Center in Beijing, China. The main event saw undefeated submission expert Ao Hai Lin (6-0) continue his win streak by out-pointing the much more experienced Ryuki Ueyama (10-13-4), and taking home a tough fought unanimous decision victory. It was the first time in Ao Hai Lin’s professional career that anyone had ever taken him the distance, or even past the first round for that matter.

“Art of War 15” had a significance for the promotion beyond the fights themselves. For the first time, the Chinese MMA organization implemented a new judging system that would prevent fights that go the distance from automatically being ruled a draw. Art of War’s Chief U.S. Representative, Al Yu, spoke to ProMMA.info about the new system:
