His alright, he fights a few of them. And I think he really does expose some proper nutters. Kiai master, psychic samurai, god possessed temple numpties

loved the episode where he kept kicking the old kung fu master in the nuts. He was acting real squemish and lookd like he was the one in pain.

The old man who was punching himself in the head all the time, was my fav. at least that guy was tough...and he smacked the host in the face a few times...that was enjoyable...none of that no touch bollocks.

The best part, in my opinion, is when he gets people to line up and push against him while he pushes back and manages to prevent them from making him move backwards.
He claims that he's able to do it because he is da chi master... meantime it's just physics.
Each to his own I guess.

I think I missed that one. Was that the same guy who chi chopped the bar propped against the wall?

No but that guy was mental!. I was quite impressed with his chopstick throwing. He was pretty built.

I loved the iron penis episode. what it actually had to do with martial arts i haven't the foggiest. but hanging weights from your dick sure is cheaper than viagra. Thanks for the idea fellas!

Did anyone see that episode where some dude chopped himself, saying his Ki would repel the blade, only to slice his arm wide open?

Aha! I couldn't figure out WHO he was like, now it's all clear.
I hated him anyway.

Also there was an episode where the filmed an guy who nearly hacked his own arm off attempting to do Iron body with a sword. So yeah, give the guy a break, he makes entertaining TV and let's the viewer decide, also he has got in and sparred on few episodes.
Mate, the program is full of ****. He might not say "THIS IS DEFINITELY 100% LEGIT" but that doesn't mean he's letting the viewer make up their own mind. He obviously supports everything they show and acts as if it's all totally legitimate... that doesn't leave much room for people to think critically (unless they are already that way inclined).
I have never seen him taking part in anything which I would consider hard sparring, only compliant or light contact stuff.
