Storyline

A documentary crew investigates the world of martial arts in rural Western Pennsylvania. What they discover is an odd band of "martial artists" who study the only truly American form of martial arts-American Macho Buddha-which was invented two decades ago by a motorcycle-driving hippie. As their research unfolds, they center their tale on the story of mild-mannered Tim Wheeler, a very average guy who's searching for a way to enhance his own self-esteem by studying this rare and deadly(?) form of combat. What Tim doesn't realize, however, is that he has a natural talent for this particular art, and when others recognize this, it puts him into direct conflict with his Sensei, the absurdly pompous (and jealous) Master Bruce Mublanus. Written by Walt Mancing
