A friend of mine sent this to me, and asked if this was truly possible...

I call bullshido on this. I tried to look around and see if someone posted this video already, but I didn't see it. I'm sure if this is old news, you guys will flame me appropriately. This is from some BBC documentary, which basically to me means if youy ever want to give something an air of legitimacy in the US have someone with a Londonian accent be the narrator.

How can anyone watch this, and believe this crap?

oh god. mind body and kick ass moves. I hate that show so much. it's kind of interesting as a cool party tricks kind of show, but as an actual martial arts documentary it is shite. and perpetuating the myth that if you do MA you are some sort of crouching tiger hidden dragon style warrior.
oh and Chris Crudelli's face really annoys me.

His master was able to kill small birds with his kiai. I imagine it must have been pretty funny to see birds drop out of the trees/sky when he practiced outside.

that is a good one, though it is one episode out of about 30. too little too late.

Kuroda Tetsuya's segment is actually pretty cool. Those that know what they're looking at could probably see he gives a lot of not so subtle hints on how to move the body without telegraphing.

The pinky trick he does at the end is pretty lame though, even though it takes skill.

I'd have to agree that Chris Crudelli IS totally gay tho lol

I wonder if the general public really believes in this or any other martial arts bullshit. I like to think not but it seems like most people I talk to think it's about chi and xma-type of things.

the small bird thing is a myth I have heard before....I remember first reading about it in a comic book 'Dr Judo' or something.

Funny that he didn't show him killing small bird though, I mean if he can do it. The bell ringing at the end is funny since he always hits the floor with the kiai...

But then again a good Kiai at the right time can desorient the oponent....

man there's a load of video of disaster right there...

People want to believe in this stuff, and that includes martial artists.

I mean, who would not want to be able to do this sort of stuff?

What a fucking hippie, for believing himself he can do it, and BBC too for producing that crap. I really hope he tries that in a self-defence situation and gets himself killed.

I know for a fact a good high pitched kiai can startle somebody. And that's about it really. Anybody else needs to be stopped before he gets himself hurt.
