Watch the Black Taoist Throw Down


He organizes rooftop fights in the projects of Harlem, Manup Standups in Jamaica, Queens, and training sessions in Central Park with like-minded kung fu fighters. I'm talking about Novell Bell, a.k.a. "The Black Taoist", of course, and if you were curious about how well he throws leather, well, check out this vid.

Flashback: Fistfight in Queens


Believe it or not, the site of this particular underground fight show (which took place circa 2007) is now a pristine UFC Gym in Astoria, Queens. It's pretty doubtful that franchise would sign off on holding another event of this ilk.

Where have all the good times gone?
