Filmed while in Tokyo, Japan for UFC 144. Skip to 1:44 if you can’t wait for the beat-down of Georges St-Pierre by a team of warriors. Oh, you thought it was an actual violent beat-down? Well, foam can be harmful as well. After all he did tap to strikes. Take note Hendricks.
As St-Pierre explains, the Canadian tradition is Hockey. In the home of the rising sun, it’s Karate. St-Pierre is not your average Canadian however as he tells of how he grew up against the grain, learning the ancient Japanese tradition, which changed his life for the better.
“For myself, Karate saved my life,” said St-Pierre. “I became a better person because of Karate. For me it’s more than a sport, it’s a lifestyle.”
