    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    WTF?!?! Kiai strikes?!?!?

    A friend of mine sent this to me, and asked if this was truly possible...

    I call bullshido on this. I tried to look around and see if someone posted this video already, but I didn't see it. I'm sure if this is old news, you guys will flame me appropriately. This is from some BBC documentary, which basically to me means if youy ever want to give something an air of legitimacy in the US have someone with a Londonian accent be the narrator.

    How can anyone watch this, and believe this crap?

    Ja

    oh god. mind body and kick ass moves. I hate that show so much. it's kind of interesting as a cool party tricks kind of show, but as an actual martial arts documentary it is shite. and perpetuating the myth that if you do MA you are some sort of crouching tiger hidden dragon style warrior.
    oh and Chris Crudelli's face really annoys me.

    Leung Ting explaining the real physics and psychology behind some common chi power stunts. His books "Skills of the Vagabonds" and "Behind the Incredibles", likewise, expose a lot of the carnival trickery that has become associated with traditional CMA.

    His master was able to kill small birds with his kiai. I imagine it must have been pretty funny to see birds drop out of the trees/sky when he practiced outside.

    that is a good one, though it is one episode out of about 30. too little too late.

    Kuroda Tetsuya's segment is actually pretty cool. Those that know what they're looking at could probably see he gives a lot of not so subtle hints on how to move the body without telegraphing.

    The pinky trick he does at the end is pretty lame though, even though it takes skill.

    I'd have to agree that Chris Crudelli IS totally gay tho lol
