    Do you realize how hard it is to read threads with Chan's glorious face looking back at me?

    As for the video, does he have his massive gut registered as a lethal weapon?

    I didn't recognize him the first time! I knew that dude looked familiar... ;)

    Anyway, yes, I like how he assumes that all BJJ players are "natural athletes" - how about "people who go to the gym regularly" ?

    And how does he explain his power working on his students without fail when even against street toughs it's only 40%?

    Good thing he didn't try to no-touch KO the reporter, since when it didn't work it would have contradicted his "natural athletes" principle (no offense to the reporter).

    Reporting on stuff like this would be a fun job at first, and then it would be a depressing job, and finally I'd just kill myself with my Kiai shout in order to end it all.

    Everytime I post to a thread I find myself staring for a few seconds too, so I understand what you mean.

    I like the part when the instructor fell unconscious when the student did it on him.

    So... even if you believe the guy there doesn't seem to be an advantage to taking Dim Mak

    I mean if you take BJJ you get to be a natural athlete and invulnerable to Dim Mak.

    But I mean, the point is that most BJJ people are not natural athletes... they're just athletes, i.e. people who actually put a strong focus on fitness as a component of martial arts.

    I realize that. I'm just pointing out that whether or not you believe Dillman BJJ seems like a better choice.

    Bonnar wasn't a celeb when this was filmed. I'm pretty sure the Dillman clip aired before TUF and Bonnar's entrance to the UFC.

    Yah, not trying to contradict you - the natural athletes line is just my personal hangup with this whole thing. I'm mad that Mr. No-touch seems to THINK that they are natural athletes just because they make an effort to get into/stay in good physical shape. Sorry if it looks like I'm disagreeing, my post was meant to complement.

    Anyway, yes, even under Mr. Nutjob's KO theory you should take up BJJ since it apparently teaches you immunity better than whatever he's doing.

    P.S: What are the odds that Bonnar would be in this video before he rose to (relative) fame and fortune? Although I guess if you consider how many people there are studying BJJ trying to get into MMA, I guess statistically it's not improbable that you'd run into a future star at a given high-profile BJJ school.
