Merge ancient Japanese art with more recent Japanese art and voila! Karate and karaoke becomes karaote. The expert karaote exponent would perform a number of popular late night bar tunes (my way, I just called to say, everything I do, living on a prayer etc) whilst dressed in a gi and going through a kata. Extra marks for breaking tiles and singing martial arts-themed songs (everybody kung fu fighting etc) at same time.

       I like it.   

       Expert proponents would be able to scare off an attacker simply by grabbing a microphone, back flipping onto a box, step, or some other form of stage and having the intro to Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" played in.

       Someone set up us the song.   

       I'd rather have 'Kung Fu Fighting'...

       Further Zen kudos could be achieved by performing delicate love songs of heart wrenching emotion whilst demonstrating a nunchaku kata. Those daring enough could engage in full combat knock out battles dressed in Elvis Las Vegas costumes.

       I like the image. Our black-belt karaotist hero, in full Elvis regalia, is cornered down a dark alley by knife wielding gangsters. He looks them over, gives a knowing "Ah huh!" and breaks into a quick chorus of "I'm Caught In a Trap" as he batters them senseless with a concealed microphone stand and his deadly wing collars.

       Yeah... It's funny. I bet you thougt of it while listening to "Kung Fu Fighting", why else? I envision Jackie Chan, fighting off backup dancers to Dragostea Din Tea. Hmmm, that's wierd. Yeah, it would really be interesting at a bar, like you suggested. How many people, after getting drunk, can do karate? I know I can! Hah-ya!! Stumble, stumble, CRASH!!!! BOOM!!! I'm OK....
