Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
You can't really go wrong with the best of BattleArts from IVP. It's something I've been thinking about picking up for a long time, but the fact there's no dates on the match lists is annoying because I've seen quite a bit from 90s BattleArts, and I've already got a lot of it on DVD anyway. Late 90s BattleArts is some of my favourite stuff ever, though. Yuki Ishikawa and Daisuke Ikeda are especially fond of punting the dogpiss out of one another. Some of the stuff is ridiculously stiff, which means it's fuggin' awesome.
Thanks. Now I just have to pursuade/extort my girl into buying this for me.
A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.
