My girlfriend got caught up at the airport because of the foil wrapper from a stick of gum...go figure.

Cord-I have the Wheel of life on VHS, is there extra stuff on the DVD or might you have another version?

The "Wheel of life" that I own was copyrighted in 2000, maybe that will help.

Has a picture of a flying sidekick and man being supported by spears on the front.

I have seen this done and have practiced it myself in Shaolin. It does work but is more of a trick than anything else. The needle is thrown from very close to the target, so if you wanted to get the needle into a person you would be better off just leaning a little further forward and sticking it into them. In addition most of the glass they use to do this is quite cheap so breaks easly.

If you do want to practice start with a darning needle and throw it into a wooden board, if you can get it to stick in then you are half way there, practice all day every day, and either you will be soon able to peirce glass or your arm will fall off.

If you want further info please ask.
