Ask Knightmare to IM him about "sparring" Snicker.

I'm still waiting for him to make an appearance in an area I reside in... When it happens, I'm going in asking to be knocked out either by pressure points or no-touch, or yelling... Whatever. I'm game.

You probably won't get the chance. Like any huckster, he's likely to use shills or at the very least, people who are more willing to "go with" his demonstrations.

"No, I can't do it, I could KILL you." is likely to be his answer.

Ah, but gentlemen, with all of that on VIDEO TAPE (because if I go, it'll ALL get onto video one way or another, whether he permits it or not), it'll be just as damning as his failing to KO me.
I've heard he hits like a freight train. E. Montaigue commented once that he wasn't sure what was KOing his subjects, the pressure point or the force of the hit. It seemed he didn't believe it was the pressure point issue.
Bottom line, I know too much about Dillman from people who were present at the same seminars he attended under Seiyu Oyata to believe much, if any, of his hype. If he were to balk at hitting me, I'd point out that a) I had a waiver with me, and b) his refusal makes him look like a schmuck.

There was a thread on another board awhile back about attending a Dillman seminar and trying to disprove the guy. Someone on there who had been trying to disprove Dillman for years cautioned anyone doing this to not let the Dillman hit you. He said Dillman had injured people in the past this way. If you go, you have to make it clear that he cannot touch you. They guy also said, like sommeone here did, that he is careful about who he lets up on stage. And yes, I do think the guy is a serious scam artist, but a punch to the head is a punch to the head. Be careful.

I don't even give a **** about people Dillman IS hitting (although for the most part it seems he does a 'pressure point' move and then hits them in the head);
But what about the people he, or his students are 'KOing' with their 'sound' or 'ki' moves...

When Dillman doesn't get the the results he wants from the pressure-point watch him throw a quick handsword to the carotid (or a punch to the sweet spot) to put his uke out.
Being a former pro boxer is also useful because he really hits people hard to put them out.
