Elvis and Ed Parker - Protecting the King

I watched a cool movie this weekend - Protecting the King. The movie chronicles Elvis' descent from being on top of the world into drug-induced paranoia.  The story is told from the point of view of Elvis' stepbrother, David Stanley, who spirals down the tubes right alongside Elvis but who finally is thrown free of the destructive spiral by Elvis' death.  For more on this story, see Wikipedia.

The best scene in the whole film was this scene in which American Kenpo Grandmaster, Ed Parker (played by his early student, Larry Tatum), dismantles several of his students in a demonstration for Elvis and  David Stanley.

Sound interesting?  You can get the film pretty inexpensively from my Amazon store:
