    I don't think you can be prosecuted for imaginary crimes yet, so you're probably OK.

    Oof. I finally got a chance to watch the video. So, the basic concept is to dislocate my hip, so that I can slowly throw an awkward kick that delivers all the power of a thrown Frisbee, while simultaneously leaving myself utterly defenseless from any imaginable attack? Where do sign up?

    Way to take the technique out of context, guys. It's obviously designed for when Merry tries to kiss your neck, which happens often enough.

    As luck would have it, the Bruce Sistaz [sic] are doing a seminar out my way next week. I'm tempted to go and find out for myself how much force is in a scorpion kick. It would make a good video anyway.

    Haha, wow, I can't find the words to describe the awesomeness that exudes from that clip!

    I think the idea is more to terrify your opponent with your hyperflexibility. Like Voldo from Soul Calibur.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    I think we're pretty safe until Segal teaches it to Silva.
