Deliciously cheesy 80s kung fu. I can't believe I was six years old when this was made. Halfway through the video when David Carradine begins the instruction, he's so serious it's creepy. The way he describes it with that blank stare into the video camera is so disturbing, and ridiculous at the same time- especially in that space war outfit!!!

Oh Debbie Drake, you're so good at making it seem so easy and relaxing! I can just picture all the housewives in their own 50s living rooms getting motivated to get fit in between all those household chores and juggling children and husbands. I especially like the calf/duck movement, along with that classy collar attached to Debbie's leotard.

The musical accompaniment to this is just fabulous- it hits the movements right on. I just discovered Jack Lalanne- he's great!! Quirky, straightforward and as he admits himself, quite talkative. I'm on a new kick of looking at fitness from the 50s and 60s. More to come!!
