    Would "a bit dodgy" be more fair?

    No, I am splitting hairs. Jake allows cross training, he respects sport arts, the school spars and the kung fu is a "mish mash" like Dale stated. Hell a **** ton is bullshido as discussed in another thread and the document posted by Rabbit.

    If you want to call him bullshido, crap, no real kung fu and just about anything else I'm cool. Hilariously bad is way lower than what he shows. I've seen MUCH WORSE than what he showed in any of his videos. It's sad because he was a young cat, with a good college career going on, when he got swept up in the bullshit.

    I understand the concept of energy being transferred into the movement of the object you are striking rather than being transformed into the deformation of cartilage, bones and tendons. But how is the "shock" returning to the CNS a main issue, or even an issue at all?

    CNS is the brain and spinal cord, pretty sheltered from impacts on the periphery of the body. For the CNS to be damaged you from striking an object with a fist you would expect fractures along the bones of the hand, forearm, upper arm, shoulder blade, collar bone +/- the spine as the energy would need to travel to the CNS somehow and as muscle/soft tissue is deformable the energy would be absorbed as deformation of the structure before it could be transmitted that far.

    Oh. That's actually kinda depressing. He just ended up picking the wrong thing. Wow. I feel kinda bad now.

    Say what?

    OK, then do me a favor. Go smash your pinky finger with a hammer, and come back and enlighten us on well your CNS was sheltered.

    That is the peripheral nervous system.

    NO ****, now go do what I said, and report back what your CNS tells you.

    What you said was stupid.

    No it wasn't. Yes, I can feel it. Yes, those signals travel through the CNS, but beyond that the CNS is not involved. To actually damage the CNS you would need to experience direct spinal trauma.

    IMO-
    Your first mistake was looking for real style vids on YouTube.

    Aside from sparring videos, lesbians kissing, old unreleased bugs bunny cartoons, lesbians kissing and baby chimps falling out of trees and lesbians kissing YouTube serves so redeeming purpose.
