Passover With the Fight Rabbi

April 19, 2011

At last year’s National Workshop, Zev Steinberg and assistant Mike Costanza presented a quick tutorial in the Jewish martial art of kung jew:

“You have a few options. You can pass back. You can pass forward, into the attack. Or you can pass over, but then you have to have a seder and it’s a whole megillah…”

I’m quoting from memory from a video Adele Rylands showed me a while ago, but I’m cooking for tonight’s seder and it popped into my head. The whole shtick is brilliant — think of every stage combat/Judaism crossover pun that could possibly happen. My personal favorite might be the “full volte…demi-volte…oy gevalt” demo. So, Happy Passover to those celebrating (yes, I said the same thing at Christmas…); everyone else, enjoy your week and the spring weather (finally)!
