    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    The fourth step is energy damage. Here we have crossed the line, no physical power will do. This must be transferred directly to the practitioner through the acupuncture points or with sufficient training this can be accomplished at a distance from the opponent.
    I think that's all that needs to be said.

    It seems that the only people who support anarchy are faggots, who want their pathetic immoral lifestyle accepted by the mainstream society. It wont be so they try to create their own.-Oldman34, friend to all children

So that when Balu-Balu and his buddies from the next village over decide to come over and visit your village with the intent of taking your women, your food, and your head, you and the other home villagers might have a chance to defeat them. That's why the grappling aspects of these arts don't emphasize a lot of groundwork and teach you to get back to your feet as soon as possible.

    This is no longer the situation in 99% of the world but you have to view the art in the context of its history.
    Word. Multiple opponents, tribal warfare and chopping up mutherfuckers before they chop you up is what it was all about.

    I've got nothing. I can't/won't try to defend the chi-ball bullshit.
