I once heard of a martial art that could stun with nothing more than malicious gossip. Beat that!

Welcome, no, and remember to think critically.

What you may be thinking of, by the way, is a legend about Bushi Matsumura. Some guy picked a fight with him, and Matsumura kiai'd and gave the evil eye, and the guy couldn't attack.

So, yes, you can intimidate people by looking intimidating and shouting. Is this a technique specific to any martial art? Absolutely not.

ok that clears that up. one last thing with the eyes though was advance hipnotisem a posability. hipnotis em to stand on the spot?

I think there's a large body of work on hypnotism, and that I'm not familiar with it. If you researched good sources, you might learn about the restrictions on hypnotism's effectiveness.

But it doesn't sound likely in the slightest.
