With a name like that how could I pass up blogging this entry about a “martial art” based on the gun, the Gun Kata from the 2002 film Equilibrium. More details are on the Equilibrium fansite under Gun Kata.
Personally after watching both clips I find it totally ridiculous. Funny thing the guy says you will be 120% better after studying it. Spending 4 days at Front Sight will make you at least 200% better, depending on where you start. If you know little you’ll be 400 % or 500% better.
You have to admit, the “gun kata”, as executed in the movie, looked positively badass. And, theoretically, if we could develop a comprehensive data set of all of the various gun engagements from now for the next hundred years (as the movie mentioned they did), we could probably develop an effective kata system.
But the kid on the webpage? Yeah, he falls under the “enthusiast” category.
