10. The Equalizer

Opening in theaters this weekend is The Equalizer and it’s one of the best action films seen in a very long time.  In the movie Robert McCall, played by Denzel Washington, is a former black ops commando that kicks some major…well, you know what. I mean I think McCall can take on the entire Russian mafia with his bare hands. Maybe even the Russian army too.  The bottom line is that you don’t want to mess with the guy because he’s a force of nature. When watching the movie you may ask yourself if what he does in regards to hand to hand combat possible? Can a person take on five guys at a time or is that just movie magic?

While in search for an answer, Nuke the Fridge’s Louis Love took a trip to the Reality Combat System a self-defence school located inside the KiLFIT Athletics Gym. There he meet up with martial arts chief instructor Carlos Gomez who’s an ex GAFE (Mexico’s special forces) and LAPD. Louis had a question. The question was, can I fight like a Black Ops Commando too?

Watch the video below and you will see that if you know what you’re doing, fighting like The Equalizer is like dancing to Salsa music.
