“This is a from guard variation of the Peruvian D’Arce (itself A Peruvian Necktie Variation using the vice grip) that I have been developing. I was having a lot of success with the Peruvian D’Arce, so I decided to see if it would work from guard. So far, so good.” – David “Lo Pan” Callaham

EDIT: The music is, naturally, “Pork Chop Express,” from the BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA SOUNDTRACK. Written and performed by John Carpenter himself.

I haven’t hung out with David much, but after watching this video, I probably should. The Big Trouble In Little China references had me falling out laughing. These set ups are really slick.
