    I've said this before on another thread. Black Belts from other styles, training in your art, don't validate your art.

    He's in Brisbane, from what I gather. Or possibly Gold Coast, those being the only two locations. Brisbane is where Scybermonk is, so if there are any bullies there, I would have expected that one of them would have checked out Scyber. Instead, it was Deadmeat, I think.

    Deadmeat's Gold Coast. He's pretty self-effacing, so I'm not sure if he'd really want to be called on again so soon.

    (edit: okay, so he's Gold Coast. Deadmeat?)

    No word on the 2666 BC lineage? It still looks like Arakan's origins have more to do with a sales brochure than a bronze age clandestine royal bodyguarding system.

    TakeItEasy has Arakan in his style field. It would be nice if he was around and could shed some light on this, since apparently nobody else can.

    Arakan the style you train in is non-existant in the country it comes from. The historical accuracy of the website is laughable. You may vary well enjoy the style ( good for you) but please don't expect people who may know better to buy into something that is not true

    As for wind pipe crushing, I've been running stairs at the track before and slipped, fallen and been to tired to put my hands out, the edge of a stone step hit my windpipe with all of my weight, gravity and the force of me running up the stairs behind it. No crushing, no rupture, just hurt and made swallowing an annoyance for a few days.
    So unless you personally have performed this windpipe crushing on someone I wouldn't recommend relying on it. The same for organ obliterating hammerfist prana, if you haven't ruptured anyones organs with it then don't expect said rupturing to occur.

    There is no may about it. Anyone that has taken basic biology and human anatomy knows that much of the rip, shredding, muscle tearing, internal bursting can't happen as describe in most MA.


    Now before someone comes but what about......blah blah blah.

    Yes, under supreme optimum conditions, any of the things claimed may have a very minute chance of happening.

    A logical person understands that. these things are so infinitesimal that you shouldn't base any MA around these strikes.
