    can any of the students supposedly use this chi power, or just the teacher?

    from the looks of the videos it looks like all the students learn is how to jump backwards and stomp on the ground really hard as they land.

    LOL. i swear to you...I'm going from tears to laughter and back to tears with this...yet another nail in the coffin of the CMA! It's a sad sad world.
    I imagine that things like these would be pretty hard to pull in the old days...if you talked about your awesome powers of destruction and invencible streak I guess someone would call your bluff sooner or later...and I'm theorizing this from all the stories that you hear of challenge matches almost to the 70's and maybe beyond. I wish I had a time machine so I could see the bullshido artists of the day and maybe see them get owned. The scary part is that some of them could actually be our style founders! Humm...:XXsunsmil

    no to split hairs, but doesn't it seem like it would be just as easy to hustle your students and propogate BS etc. back in the day (lets say pre 20th century)?

    With no internet (and communications in general severely limited), knowledge wasn't as democratized as it is now. You couldn't consult with experts and you couldn't verify someone's expertise as easily.

    Without Bullshido.net I may have never gotten the reality check i needed - i think that the less information available to the student, the more easily they can be taken advantage of.


    That being said - if you can see with your own eyes that your master is getting his ass handed to him by a challenger, well.... then it should be obvious.


    So, anyone know how common were challenge matches back in the day?
