    Another Candidate For Delusional Douche of the Year

    use a clear example, I can sense (I miss stuff, but have not been know to find false positives) physical problems without contact. I can often work and them and can typically tell wheather that work has done good before asking the subject.
    Another case of a martial artist who believes he has supernatural powers, but tries to worm his way out of earning $1M for a simple demonstration of said powers.

    It's the same guy?

    Haha.

    Post URLs to the threads on him, for reference. Want to put the nail a bit deeper into the coffin on this guy.

    Man, it just upsets me to see someone training in some actually practical arts, like Silat, and giving it a bad name with all of this one-touch KO and healing BS.

    Too bad this isn't like Brazil, then someone could go knock some sense into him.

    I think it would be reasonable enough for self-described martial arts masters to be required to allow challengers to prove whether or not they know what they're teaching and that it's effective.

    I'd wager that were such a regulation put in place, the number of martial arts schools across the country would drop by 80% at least.

    While you're right Phrost, I think a better way of doing it, and a more acceptable way to the public, would be to have a national program wherein anyone who professed to teach self defence would be tested by a governing body, so there'd be a higher standard to meet.

    Sorry to inform you that we have plenty of McDojos here as well. Challenges, as far as I know, are not common.
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.
