Was this insane kung fu battle the inspiration for Dhalsim from Street Fighter?

In the 1976 Chinese kung fu flick Master of the Flying Guillotine (which incidentally had a krautrock soundtrack), the protagonist — the One-Armed Boxer — squares off against Yoga Tro La Seng, a yoga master with the power to stretch out his limbs ridiculously. Yoga Tro La Seng also throws a bird at our hero, but that's (rather shockingly) less interesting in the grand scheme of things.


How does the fight end up? You'll just have to watch. Shades of a certain video game yoga master, anyone? This clip comes to us courtesy of the always entertaining Mr. Sardonicus, who last brought us the puppy chariot attack.

Why doesn't your player show up half the time for me? Sometimes refreshing brings it up, but not always. It's like it isn't event there... I don't know m it may be something wrong with my computer, but it's still frustrating. Also, the log in doesn't always work... I seem to have to log in 5 times before it actually works.

Oddly, i just added this movie to my netflix queue last night. I'm going to get it after The Ref :)
