    "The emotive instructional method, using imagery and mystical mumbo jumbo."

    I see.

    Okay, y'know, at the risk of seeming closed-minded, I'll just limit myself to what I've already done (described in my previous post in this thread) if someone's strike gets past my other defenses. It's gotten me home to my family from shift, over the years, with relatively few scars--for which I'm thankful. No doubt I'm missing out on some truly mystical experiences, but I guess we all have our, um, limitations. Somebody's going to have to convince me that "emotive mumbo jumbo" > basic commonsense when it comes to doing jobs like mine.

    Amen to that!

    TBH, haven't spared for wayy to long (hence the the list of questions - I am Curious George), due to moving from one place to another... sadly I had to stop going to the Karate class I was attending, as it was just not practical from a transport point of view :new_2guns

    which has meant that I've had to find my feet again (no pun intended)when it comes to what local clubs are 'meat and potatos' and which ones are just a packet of crisps...

    So I'm getting back into it.

    (well done on the win BTW)

    Don't take it personal, it's standard operating procedure.
    Not really sure how to go about this me being new and all.
    Would a vid shot from a Sony Ericsson mobile phone of me slamming a PL10 Louisville slugger into my gut be sufficient? Or would you prefer my brother do it?

    P.S. The demonstration won't be pretty, I have a bad case of the beer gut and like a semi-inflated balloon, it will wobble from the force. Not a pretty sight.

    Alternate.

    Self, then brother. Repeat as necessary (AKA ad infinitum).

    Don't forget the third person present with the cell-vid.

    Thanks in advance.

    Video of being hit with a baseball bat is retarded. I can do that all day and I don't for a second believe I've gained control over my internal organs.

    I'd like to see any research in neurology or physiology that says you can gain conscious control over muscles that are typically controlled by the autonomic nervous system.

    You may be joking but I used to train with a guy that had a huge beer gut. He was a super mild looking nerd guy except for his lumberjack hams he called hands. Anyway, punching him in the stomach was almost useless. He had a rock solid world's strongest man style muscle belly under all that fat. Sparring with him started turning me into head hunter guy for a while. At least my high kicks improved.

    There was a guy at Nashville MMA that was like that. He seemed to have a basically invincible gut. His problem was being slow and not having the best cardio, but he was otherwise a skilled fighter and tough as hell.
