This'll be good: meeting my buddy's kung fu buddy tomorrow
I was at the store the other day after I got out of the gym to pick some stuff up when I saw a buddy of mine I hadn't seen for some time there. We did the usual small talk BS, then he asked me what was I up to lately. I told him that besides school, work, MA, girlfriend, and strength training I didn't really have much of a life and that's when he started telling me about his buddy who does kung fu.
He works with this guy (they're both security guards at the local mall, which automatically makes them the d34dly) who says he trains in Eagle Claw kung fu and has a grip so strong he can crush bones, rip off muscle, etc. etc. So we talked a bit and my buddy explained how this guy was teaching him all these "ki harnessing" exercises and crap to help him develop that crushing strength and all this other bullshit. He then tells me he has a party going on tomorrow night, which I will be sure to be there to meet this cat.
This is where the fun comes in: I haven't seen my buddy in a few years, so he has no idea about all of the grip training I've been doing. I'm a nut about training my grip actually, and it's probably the best attribute I have of me physically. I'm pretty close to closing the Captains of Crush #3 gripper (which takes about 280lbs to close), can do a few cool grip tricks (tearing phone books, ripping decks of cards in half, busting soda cans, etc.), and have pretty rugged fingers from doing a lot of pinch grip and hub work so I feel it's a pretty good grip.
So I figure I'm going to meet this guy and crush the bones in his hand first, then ask him a bit about his training :glasses1: Then I'm gonna get drunk and hit on his girlfriend he's supposed to be bringing. LOL jk.
This is the school he says he trains at: http://www.rothrockskungfu.com/
Should be a fun time. I'll keep you all posted.

An excerpt from their site:
The advanced practitioners of Eagle Claw develop their hand and finger strength so that they can crush bones, stop blood and air flow and disrupt the nerves.

Hey Koto, if you can close the #3, go to a knife show where Emerson has a booth and you get a free production model if it is the same grips he advertises on his site (I believe they are). Check his site for details.

You can do better than that. Trick him into grabbing your shirt or something to show you his amazing grip and how you'll never be able to get him off, and then do omote gyaku tori followed by kote gaishi, crushing his poor hand as hard as you can. Post pictures of the aftermath.

Chop his hands off with a butcher knife, and when he stops screaming, say "now how you gonna grip me, bitch?"
