    Master Sasaki - BBC reports on the power of the kiai

    saw this on Rocketboom yesterday, several people on Digg recommended this site to see other frauds.

    KIAI!

    Master Sasaki implies his kiai can stop a sword wielding attacker, his master killed birds with a kiai, and he can ring a temple bell with his mighty yell.

    I cant still this type of crap, its just like the one MA teacher who thought he could knock people out with his chi energy because it worked on his own students (they bullshitted or they believe it enough for it to work) , and then he tried it on bjj students and nothing happened.

    Check the rest of the video out. Ass. Handed. To. Him.

    What a cruel thing to do to a guy...making him think he can knock you out. I'm talking about the students who went along with it.

    I'd love to see this guy's baffled face when a dude throws a basketball in it like they did with the other Japanese Ki-master (or whatever)..
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.

    While certain aspects are possible. A bell ringing, a glass shattering, etc., the guy not being able to attack because of his voice is unlikely.

    I didn't pay much attention in Astronomy class, so bear with me, but we did talk about how an opera singer can make a glass shatter if she matches her pitch with the inherent fluctuating wave of the object. This would help explain why he can make a temple bell sound, possibly.

    But I could always just be talking out of my ass. I'm very good at that.

    Seen the bell demo on some documentary that I cannot remember the name of. As the master shouted he stamped his foot. The floor was wooden with tatami over them. The bell stood on the tatami about 8 feet away.

    It struck me at the time that it was probably the stamp that rang the bell.
