Dustin’s Dojo is a joke act. A guy who says he learned karate at a pizza place in Pensacola (OK, I’ll give him the alliteration there) and has a masked sidekick, and it’s all played for laughs. Because really.

There’s plenty more of this drummed up in 20 videos over the past nine months on Dustin’s Dojo YouTube channel.
