    You should get over your disgust and apply critical reasoning.
    Understandable. Admittedly, us Shou Shuer's need to start getting out to the competition circuits.

    This is actually addressed in Bullshidoka Arguments #1 and 2.

    Bullshidoka Argument #1 - Demanding that we train with or under the subject of the investigation before we make any conclusions about his claims.

    Counter - An experienced martial artist can make reasonable judgments about someone else's level of skill or expertise. Although first hand experience is effective, informed judgments can be drawn from video clips and other media. This may not stand alone as conclusive proof of anything, but it can be a factor that raises the red flag of bullshido.

    Bullshidoka Argument #2 - Questioning the ability of posters here to make informed judgments.

    Counter - Similar to the counter for argument #1. The presence of skilled practioners of a variety of styles is one of Bullshido.net's greatest assests. That said, you don't have to be able to sing to identify someone who can't (American Idol, anyone?).

    So no, that's not how it works here.

    This part makes me think you never got near a fight in your life. This is your standard demo crap. You hit him, he bends over to setup your next strike. Its one step away from juggling in Tekken.

    You can see this stuff in the crap demo. See how this guy stays bent over.
    So, when you kick a guy full force in the groin... He just stands there and laughs?

    "This may not stand alone as conclusive proof of anything." Couldn't have said it better.

    Wayyy too complicated for an internet forum. You don't use the natural reactions of the human body to your advantage in your arts?

    :friends:
    Does the same theory apply for techniques other than the almighty groin kick? Have fun hitting nerve clusters, floating ribs, or the duodenum of a moving, attacking opponent.

    I have seen people on this forum explain the most subtle details of very complex techniques in text, in a way I never thought possible. What exactly is way to complicated here? You can provide a video.

    You had a very specific example in your post. Where are you using those natural reactions?

    Which is why you are being aske to prove your claims.
    I even said so in my other post.
    Try to keep up.

    No it's not.
    It's a simple question.
    This thread is about SS, not any other arts.
    Don't change the subject.

    Do, you need me to explain why this doesn't work?

    If that were the case, you'd put a lot of historians out of business.
    Nope. You really need to understand what is being said instead of reacting off of emotion.
