IRONFIST: Hanging out with Ole Baguio Laursen (4K English subtitles)

– Can you just say,
My name is Ole Baguio Laursen? – What’s up, gimme five,
my rap career’s not for wine drinkers… – What’s going on? – I have a present for you Ole… – Can you guess what it is? – I’m guessing it’s a t-shirt of yours?
– Almost… – Let’s see. – Boooyaah! – Wow… Crazy! – Amazing, how did you get your hands on this? – I had to go hunting for it. – But you have to explain what it is. – It’s the ‘Ironfist’… – The comic book… – The comic… – The magazine… – I used to read these as a kid,
my brother turned me unto them. – Yeah we read these… – So we could learn how to… – Do it. – Back then we would go to the 2nd hand shops… – We would have boxes filled with Kung Fu magazines,
and all sorts of stuff. – So we would go there… – And exchange our old magazines,
for other (fewer) ones. – Like videogames?
– I don’t know about that… – But then you would get some
you hadn’t read yet. – This is to dope. – Yeah, thank you man.
– You are welcome. – Do you know the story about him? – It’s this kid… An only child,
living with his single mother. – In New York, I think. – A normal but hard everyday life for this mother,
who has to take care of her son. – Who is only 10 years old. – She takes care of this kid, she has some boyfriends.
So the kid has a stepdad. – Who has this great idea to go to the Himalayas,
to look for this… – The entrance to… – I can’t remember the name… – Entrance to this sacred world. – Where he want’s to… – Reap some financial gain from this world,
that only opens up… – Every 10 years. – So he drags this family, a mother and her son… – So they are running around these snowy mountains… – Completely lost, and they never find this gate. – And then… – They get ditched… – By the stepdad. – If I remember correctly, he ditches them. – And he he is lost up there in the mountains,
almost freezing to death with his mom. – And ofcourse this pack of wolves show up. – Show up to eat them. – So the mom. – Throws herself to these wolves. – To save her son.
It gives me the chills! – And then… – Saves her son who is now alone… – On this snowy mountain. – But then… – The gates open to this world. – No there is a monk. – From this world that takes him with him. – And saves him, so now he is there… – yeah well… – a 10 year old orphan. – Who is then trained in the ‘Ironfist’. – Year for year he grows older… – He goes through this training.
So first he is punching… – Sand. – After a while it’s gravel. – Then just rock.
Then at last… – The ultimate test,
he dips his hands into… – Liquid metal. – So now all of a sudden… – He’s the highest level, he IS the ‘Ironfist’ – He can control his fists, when he gets pissed.
And really… – Needs it.
He can turn his hands into metal. – And then he merks everything,
plus he’s got mad kung fu skills. – And then he just beats up all… – And everyone. – Who’s a bad person. – Is that where you got your name?
– That is where I got my name yes… – My brother gave me that name, when I was a kid. – Yeah… – So these… – We’ve read alot of these. – What is that thing?
– It’s a deep fryer. – The thing about a deep fryer is,
it boils at… – It boils oil you know?
It brings oil to a boil. – Whatever that is… – Oil’s boiling point is higher than water.
Water is 100 degrees. – And for oil it is… – Something else.
So when you… – Pour your liquid in there,
with all your herbs and stuff… – Legal herbs, of course. – Turmeric and lemongrass. – So it keeps boiling,
if I use a waterboiler it stops. – When I use this one it just keeps boiling. – This way I get all the steam,
and I’m in this stand up tent. – You know it’s like… – Well it’s a tent that designed for… – Showering or a toilet
when you are out camping. – But I use it as a sauna. – Is there a special reason you put in all the herbs? – Yes, they are supposed to… – Help clean out your system,
I’m not really sure what excactly. – It’s just something I brought with me from Thailand,
I do it every sunday back in Ubon. – And that is this herbal steam sauna. – They let the steam into this little… – So how long can you sit there? – Well it depends on how hot the fire is burning… – How much it’s boiling. – It’s also a small room with no windows… – It’s a trip, you’re sitting there,
it’s hot and all foggy from the steam… – And the other people in the dark like… – You hear all kinds of weird sounds like,
what’s going on here? – But it’s very very cool. – Can you tell something about that
tournament… – That you are going to soon? – What is that about? – Well it’s… – There is something going on right now,
and I’m not sure it will happen… – I don’t know if you saw the trailer?
They made this trailer. – That looked like this hollywood production. – Now they’re doing this tournament
regardless of style, weight, whatever. – And 6.5 kilos of gold and… – And the prince of Bahrain says
he wants to find the ultimate ultimate. – That in itself sounds… – Crazy dope, so I thought… – I want in!
It sounds like Kumite for real. – So I write them, which I’m sure alot of
people all over the planet did. – Then after about… – 14 days later they write me,
saying I’ve been chosen longside… – 15 other fighters.
Or we were 15 in total… – Then my manager asks me,
‘Hey did you know that…’ – That you are not getting paid. – It just got out,
that you won’t get paid if you… – Get beat up, don’t win anything,
you leave emptyhanded. – Even if you win your first fight. – Lose the second one, same thing. – Not a dime. – What are you sure? – So right now I’m sorta in limbo,
I’m not sure… – Will I get paid or not.
Because one thing is sure, I’m not doing it for free. – Have you ever fought more than once in 1 night? – Yeah, I fought in K1-Max against… – Duane Ludwig in the final. – In Denver, Colorado.
I won my first fight, KO. – And the second fight was against… – Duane. – I dropped him in the first or second… – Then after 3 rounds, they call it a… – Draw, and we have to go to sudden death,
an extra round. – In my opinion I won that fight… – You mean the draw or the sudden death? – No, I mean… – I shouldn’t have gone to a draw.
I thought I won it. – I dropped him. – They gave him an 8 count. – It’s cool, Duane is cool. – So… – Yeah, but I definitely think I should have won that fight. – I’m looking foward to watching it,
I haven’t watched it since I was 23. – But Duane and I are cool.
He came down… – And lived with me in Ubon, to train for a fight,
before he left for… – He was going to Japan to face… – Ramon Dekkers, he fought Ramon Dekkers!
Crazy. – So he came down and trained with me in Ubon. – After all the K1-Max thing with Duane… – I was in San Diego.
I was living in this gym… – Well this… – This sucks! – Suddenly I get this email… – From JD…
JD Penn. – He ask if I wanted to come train with BJ,
who was training for… – A rematch with Jens Pulver… – You know he lost the first fight. – He asked if I wanted to come to Hawaii
and help… – Train BJ and get him ready for this rematch. – How did he get a hold of you? – Did you know him?
– No, I didn’t know him. – I just got this email saying he had heard of me. – …Of me, through… – You know, internet news,
and I fought – Well maybe he heard of me because of my fight with… – Because there was some drama back then. – Some people thought I won the fight against Duane… – Some people thought he won it. – Whatever, there wasn’t that much internet back then. – But people talked a little
about our fight on some forums. – Anyways, he got in touch with me. – I got this email and just said,
sure I’m game. – Ok Ole, if we meet up tomorrow,
we can film you train for a bit… – Make some build-up for this tournament
thing if it goes through. – I’m game. – Google maps, can’t leave without it. – Good workout? – Yeah, it’s been ok.
Moved around a little. – Sweat a little,
get the pulse going. – It’s ok. – Was it hard?
– Yeah it was a bit harder than I’d like to admit. – It was pretty hard,
I’ve been chilling too much. – What are you training for?
– Right now I’m training for potentially… – A… – Open weight tournament in Bahrain,
it’s some crazy stuff… – There are some really big guys in there.
there are some… – Big money in it… – It’s a open weight MMA tournament.
That’s pretty extreme. – That’s what I’m training for right now. – When are you training again?
– The day after tomorrow. – Maybe tomorrow, it depends. – But the day after tomorrow for sure,
I need to start running aswell. – I haven’t gone for a run in… – It’s been months. – I have to… – Get to it,
I feel it when I’m down here. – The last pressure. – I’m not quite in it,
like I would be if I had been running. – I have to do it. – A couple of times this week at least. – Cool! – I don’t have any questions so…
Great practice everyone. – What are you doing now? – I’m going home to eat.
– Anything special? – I think she said I would get tom kha gai… – That’s one of my favorites.
– What is it? – Tom kha gai,
roughly translated it means… – Coconut chicken soup. – But it’s more like a curry,
like a coconut chicken curry. – It’s amazing. – It tastes good. – I tell myself it’s good for me. – Mentally it definently is,
‘good vibes’.

  1. Lidt Trantino over redigeringen. Interessant, hvor købte du Iron Fist tegneserien? Har lyst til at købe nogle klassiske Batman og måske også Iron Fist eller andet :p
