    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    "No-contact fighting": what is REALLY going on?

    First up, this thread takes for granted that it it physically impossible to move an object/opponent through telekinesis, psychokinesis, magic, the Force, etc.

    That out of the way, I'm very interested in discussing the technicalities of this sort of thing:

    YouTube - AIKIDO - the only and real one

    What is actually going on, both psychologically and physically? Why do the "attackers" keep falling down?

    I have several theories but I'd like to hear from others to get the ball rolling.

    Same reason these people are acting like they're in a horse race:

    Social compliance, no more complicated than that.

    OK, seriously, that's Ueshiba, they are his japanese followers, they would be very stupid to be so disrespectful as to not fall over.

    I think that's a big part of it; likewise:

    No problem, but for the record, this isn't style vs. style; I'm interested in the mind-and-muscle phenomenon itself, especially as it manifests in "internal" MAs, but also in hypnosis demos, faith healing, (rarely) in competitive sports, etc.

    One guy gestures, the other guy acts like he's been hit or thrown; why?
