The Dragon Grip joystick brings some much-needed authenticity to imitation fight sequences taken part in by wannabe Kung-Fu masters. Shaped like a video game joystick, the toy fits into the palm of the user's hand and generates all the hi-ya's and judo-chopping sound effects necessary to feel like Bruce Lee.

Designed by Paul Mark and John Fearon as a kickstarter project, the martial arts sound simulator is available in black with a red dragon emblazoned across the handle or in a reverse color scheme that sees the dragon colored in black and the handle in red. The device houses a front-facing speaker and four-way directional pad that are used to playback punching, karate slashing, side kicking and sound effects that coincide with the moves made by the user holding the joystick.
