    And if someone is running around telling people that they can block a punch with chi, I'm definitely going to want to test it.

    So, you are sort of like that Bobby Joe Blythe guy. If some obviously mentally unstable person claims that he can take you with his Kung Fu, you will feel the need to beat him unconscious and throw him in a dumpster. You showed him. Good for you, man.

    See above and right back at you.
    I really don't get your reasoning. I came across a strange thread about weird Yellow Bamboo people while browsing videos. The last post in the thread occurred about a year and a half ago. However, I just saw the thread for the first time. I had some thoughts that I wanted to add. So, where exactly is the problem?

    Hey, we talked about this a year and a half ago. We can't talk about it again today. I don't care whether or not you might have a new persepective to add. The fact is, we talked about this a year and a half ago, so you must keep quiet about it now.

    Really? OK. You're the mod. If that's how you want things run, fine.

    Then don't. See how easy that was? And it's not a cult - it's a Balinese scam for gullible tourists. Find the youtube vids of the actual Yellow Bamboo guys, running down the beach and flinging themselves in the air when the tourists gesture at them. I expect there's one or two among them who *really* believe, but otherwise, they take the money, laugh, and wait for the next tour group.

    Anyone going away from that thinking that they have developed some sort of mystical power is going to find out in tragic fashion that those powers don't work, without someone else's prior intervention.

    It might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it makes my point. There's no need to beat up delusional people just to prove that they are delusional. It does nothing more than make you feel a little bit better about yourself. You can go on and on about how you are protecting martial arts from fraud. In reality, you're just beating up some guy whom you knew you could beat up from the get go. What's the point in that? If some Yellow Bamboo guy put his hands on you, that'd be one thing. If some Yellow Babmboo guy tells you that he has magical powers and amazing abilities, who cares? You can go have a steak and a beer and laugh at him; without running at him (or her) with a clothes line.

    I too, refrain from this behavior in less surreal settings. I must, however, admit I find it hilarious in this one.

    Come at me bro * * * * BINK...

    Not that I'd....but damn that's funny. Tragic and sad, yet beautiful in an obtuse way. :) Let it be a lesson, and let's hope it snapped some of the marks out of the delusion. That **** is silly.

    If someone is delusional enough to offer to stand there and take a hit because they don't believe you can hit them the likelihood of being able to talk them round is low.
    A demonstration to the contrary on the other hand..difficult to argue against when the painful reality lands.

    I would be deeply uncomfortable doing it tho and would have to do a lot of 'cruel to be kind' mantra recitation beforehand. But I'm a softy.

    No, it has nothing to do with Soap-Box Sally's "leave Brittney Alone" rant.

    Yellow Bamboo took up the JREF challenge, CLAIMED they passed and then stated Randi reneged on his deal. They went on various forums "spreading the word" of their beliefs, accepting challenges and basically started calling the JREF Org liars and frauds. Like I said earlier, before butt-hurt Billy bumped the thread, go find out the particulars of a FOUR YEAR OLD VIDEO before whining about "waaaaah they are delusional!"

    I too, refrain from this behavior in less surreal settings.
    States the guy who sparred a delusional chunner.
