Step by Step: How Elon Musk Built His Empire (by Anna Vital)“The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.”– Peter Thiel in “Zero to One” In the bookZero to One, prominent entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shares his vision on what it takes to create an extraordinary company. Specifically, Thiel believes that instead of making incremental upgrades to an existing product or service, a company must aim to do something completely new to avoid ruthless competition. While Thiel has worked with many impressive people over the years, Thiel points to Elon Musk as a particularlysuccessful memberof the Paypal Mafia that has gone “zero to one” many times.

Very interesting part in the making of Batman Begins. I love how these movies create or discover fighting methods never seen before in movies like what they did in the Bourne movies.

About the Keysi Fighting Method

KFM is the fighting style which is primarily used by Christian Bale in Batman Begins, and will also be featured in The Dark Knight.

Bale had this to say about the martial art:


We've gone a bit further with Keysi (...). I'm actually learning how to do it more realistically than ever before, though it's such an extreme way of fighting; there are literally moves where you tear someone's cheek away from their face, or rip their nose off - every part of you becomes a weapon. It's formidable. Batman doesn't kill, so we can't have him doing that; we modify it.

"We really wanted something that would look as though Bruce Wayne-as-Batman had created his own style of fighting, something that was unique in style and look," Christian Bale elaborates. "A big part of the Batman persona is the aggressive, animalistic way he attacks his enemies. I wanted to show how devastating he is when he charges forward and attacks people, and his resilience in taking blows as well."

"The Keysi Fighting Method is a very intuitive kind of martial art, but also very, very brutal," Bale relates. "It's all about going for the break straightaway. It's quite instinctive and it adapts to many different situations. So it truly looks as though this is Batman's own style that he's come up with."

"Christian is an excellent student," Forman attests. "We were very surprised at how quickly he absorbed the information when we gave him his first lesson."
