    I've noticed a lot of "big names" in physics and math tend to be a little whacky like that, or maybe I just read the wrong essays. Kind of like when people quote Einstein and make him into some pseudoreligious anti-science freak, which he most definitely was not.
    Amen. This is why the world needs Sokal (who is a crap philosopher and critical thinker, but a great satirist and 'bullshit' caller).

    And sorry to interrupt the discussion about...whatever that was in the video...

It teaches you how to get the crap beaten out of you. I've found the best response is to go rag doll because the more you try to defend yourself he just hits you more and harder.

    Yeah sure, whatever floats your boat.


    There are far more productive ways to learn how to take hits - even within the context of the uber-style known as "self taught hung gar".

    I don't get it. Is this full contact sparring, or is it some sort of cooperative Kata?

    Having a cooperative partner definitely helps in this video.

    Actually i can shed some light on this one....

    A general comment on the first one, he seemed to pretty much deck the guy every time. I dunno how you guy feel about it
    Doesn't look like full speed to me. What a bunch of bullshit. If it's full contact sparring, fine, but just stand there after you've thrown a half speed technique so Sifu Asshole can hit you about 10 times so he doesn't feel like a *****? **** that. Not to mention one of those guys he's smacking around looks like he's about 14 or 15.
