I have noticed a few people around the forums who are violently allergic to the word chi. I have not known them to whine about Ki but it is hardly ever brought up.
At the slightest mention of traditional MA, chi, there being something they haven't seen. They start being a jackass.
I think they see themselves as helping delusional fanatics who are trying to master the hadoken.
These people know that there is a whole lot of bullshido happening in places. They want to inform the 10year old BB that a kitten could kick his ass. Most however take this healthy normal desire to an extreme level.
These people believe that unless there a physics book about it the art can't work. They do not want to believe us when we tell them what chi is. Breathing and concentration, that is all the kind of chi we talk about here is. Chi is not he force. There is no Chi lightning, no chi choke, and no flaming chi.
These people usually also think that "NHB" TV is the end all and be all of MA. While it is kind of fun the rules ether hose strikers of grapplers depending on who just revised them. As it stands it hoses strikers. Why does it hose strikers? They are just to lethal. If it were a true NHB grapplers would have to be a lot more careful with what they leave open.
My main annoyance with these people are that they act like a jackass. They state their opinion and give no intelligent comment thereafter, while claiming that you were unable to beat their inane logic.
Dim Mak : Just squeeze the neck to disrupt their chi flow.
Star Trek : Squeeze just above the collar bone at the nerve cluster to knock them out by disrupting the nerve impulses and causing the brain to shut down temporarily.
Both describe the vulcan neck pinch, the one on the top gives them a skepticgazim. The one at the bottom makes them go piss of there little sister/brother.
Do me a favor and win a Darwin award.
Now lets see people get pissed at me for directly accusing them of things, even though no one was directly accused. However they won't now that I have stated this.
