Low-budget filmmaking is a tough industry. For as many diamonds that shine, there are countless pieces of coal. Now, one man has emerged with the magic touch. That man is The Karate Man.

Ethan Page, as The Karate Man, released a badass short film where he kills ninjas. This 8-minute piece of cinema has it all. Jamming guitar riffs, bone crunching, swords, intrigue, mystery, and a surprise tease. Sit back and enjoy the awesomeness known as The Invitation.

The film begins with The Karate Man’s in-ring debut against Tom Lawlor at an AIW event. Unfortunately for The Karate Man, he went down in defeat to the five-point-palm-exploding-heart technique. That was not the end of The Karate Man. “The Karate Man has died a thousand deaths, but he will never perish.” He went on a path of vengeance against the Stoney Creek clan. Violence ensued as The Karate Man sliced one ninja’s throat with a sword and stabbed another with a pair of sai.

Upon the death of the third ninja, The Karate Man received an invitation for TalkN’Shop A-Mania 2 on November 13. A hockey-masked foe wants to beat hardness into flaccidity as the cock torturer.

For background on the evil mastermind, watch the trailer for TalkN’Shop A-Mania 2: Rise of the Torturer. The event is available through Fite TV.

Let’s pray that The Karate Man sides with good to prevent cock torture. Let’s also pray that The Karate Man gets picked up for a full-fledged series. The superstar action genre has dried up. The Karate Man is the hero we need to carry the mantle of super studs. Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and now The Karate Man.

The Karate Man will also get a rematch against Lawlor in AIW on October 9.

Do you believe The Karate Man can become our next great action hero? Would you tune in to a weekly series featuring The Karate Man? Does The Karate Man’s appearance sell you for TalkN’Shop A-Mania 2?
