    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.

    Do you realize who that is? It's the guy from www.clearsilat.com that we make fun of all the time.

    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.
