    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    HOLY CHI Check this out!!! HUGE BULLSHIDO!

    So, like a moron I was on Y!Answers Martial Arts forum discussing the finer points of life when I came across this...

    Typical crazy Chi question, but even better is a guy totally sets himself up...

    I will spare you the whole giant thing, check out the Brain H's answer...

    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...nfo-AA10772265

    Ok, so if his crazy answer wasn't bad enough. (Taking 4 years to learn how to do what takes Monks a lifetime, Chi manipulation at a high level and breaking steel) his links were so craptacularly awesome I HAD to share here on Bullshido, despte me not posting in like 4 months...


    So first check out the videos, they can be found at the below link, under related videos on the right hand side. (They are little but there is 4 HILARIOUS videos)

    http://www.myfoxutah.com/myfox/pages...Y&pageId=5.2.1


    Wait, I know your sides are still hurting... but it gets better...

    Check out the website:

    http://www.mp-usa.org/

    Now keep in mind this art was so deadly that this art was released to the Indonesian public in 1963, and has only been allowed to be taught to Westerners for less than a decade.


    LOL!!!!

    It is hilarious, man I am at work but could someone PLEASE do so more digging on this one, it has to be the funniest damn thing I have ever seen!!!


    Ohhh check out the Videos!!!

    Here for your Friday afternoon pleasure, you can thank your friendly neighborhood Judomofo for bring you Merpati Putih, Bullshido of the highest degree...

    Anyone who still believes in chi (as far as its application to the martial arts goes) should be stuck in a rubber room with a straight jacket.

I really don't believe there's anything magical about it and I certainly wouldn't try to block a sword with it. It's better to just accept it and move on - no point in racking your western brain all out of shape about it.
    This is what I hate more than some chi-dork. What is it I hate?
    Some fucking "The-Western-Mind-Is-Soooooo-Limited" cockspank!

    **** you, opinionatedshitball! I hate your condescending attitude towards
    westerners with their "western minds". Have you ever stopped to wonder why
    countries like Japan, Korea, China, etc are investing in science and modern technology
    over their "ancient oriental s3cr3ts."

    I mean, if we were to believe chinese medicine, then we'd all have to agree that
    baby-batter (aka "sperm") was made in the kidneys. Oh, and if we jamb needles into
    the magical chi meridians, we can alleviate pain---it's not the endorphines, asshole! It's CHI!!!!

    The funny thing is, it's usually western people who are insulting western ideas and circle-jerking to the whole "chi" deal. 90% of East Asians are just as rational and embracing of Western ideas as the guy next door.

    Chi is just a really outdated explanation for a collection of things that science has already clarified.

    It's not an ulcer! It is a small dwarf living in your stomach!
    Only qigong will loosen it up.

    Yes, I hate the western-born anti-western tards! I'd love to log in
    to yahoo answers and say "Listen dickmouth, chi is not real. There is nothing
    wrong with the western mind. There IS such a thing as objective reality.
    Go put a gun in your mouth and blow your western-but-wannabe-eastern mind out of your skulls."

    Judomofo, would you please post a link for Brian H and Opinionatedtardkitty to
    come over to this post?

    Have nice weekend, folks. Today is me and the Mrs's 5th wedding
    anniversary. Time to send the baby over to grandma's house and
    do some no-gi grappling of the fun kind.

    Piss on you chi-believers. Bullshido rules!

    Amazing how all these craptastic marital arts have the exact same moves. I wish I could copyright the lunge-punch-to-standing-armbar-combo-of-death and collect royalties. I'd be as rich as Daniel Radcliffe.

    Well, according to Brian H(omo) on yahoo answers, the chi breathing exercises are "pateneted".

    Once again, Silat pulls ahead in the "Most Rediculous Martial Arts Mysticism" race.

    Maybe August should be "Wizards Suck" month, for all the no-touch knockout, chi blasting charlatans out there?
    We could even mix in footage of Harry Potter and Gandalf the Gray for the video highlight.
