Good grief, another made up martial art :roll:. Not judging, but seriously - thumbs up (or whatever) is another genre?
:?:
Unless I've mixed up the shows, Rhea's interview was about her black belt in (blank), which differs from (blank, maybe karate?) by how you block attacks (with the muscles, not the bones), and how you hold your thumb for the strike. Or something silly. If a petite little girl faces you down with her thumb up - RUN!

We previously had another black (i think) belt contestant in some Brazilian (?) version which also featured dancing or something a few weeks ago. So beware middle aged ladies that bust a dance move on you!

I'm sure these are real disciplines with genuine athletic components and skilled practitioners. But I resist junk science, quack medicine, and quasi-sports. Not that soccer and baseball weren't the same as quidditch and ultimate frisbee in their day. As long as they don't show up as FJ questions, enjoy...
Oh, okay. I thought that might be what you meant but wasn't sure if it was a reference to a clue I wasn't remembering. The martial art Rhea practices, Isshin-Ryu karate, is one of the more popular styles of karate and has been around since the mid '50s.
I would prefer not to.

Opus being the singular form of opera is a datum worth remembering.
This is true pretty much regardless of your criteria. There will be no need for an erratum regarding this post. Nor will there be a correction in any of the appendices or indices.
A running joke between my wife and I is that the plural form of Kleenex is Kleenices.

Yeah, remembered 2014 & Russia aggroing Ukraine. Of course it's all Trump's fault. :twisted:
