    Help me end this [email protected]$king argument about "deadly" vital point striking

    He claims kung fu possesses "deadly" vital point striking that kung fu guys can't use in regular sparring(he said this after seeing the clip on here of the MMA fighter tapping out the kung fu stylist) but only refers to the Bubishi as the only evidence of its existence. It's the old "one-touch kill", dim mak argument :)

    I claim it's all BS as I'm studying to be an acupuncturist (degree's offered at NYCC, so once I finish up pre-med, I'm off to NY) and have read a lot about the fundamentals and there's not a damn thing in there or that any acupuncturist has said that entails "deadly vital point striking."

    So let's see what the Bullshido community thinks about this :)

    No, there is no such thing and this is a stupid poll

    Well, there's plenty of vital points on the body that if struck, that could result in death.

    You generally have to strike them with a bullet fired from a gun. :)

      Like a one hit kill type of strike?

      If that, the only one I can think of is a hit sending your nose into your brain...that's about it.

        That's not even really possible, to be honest. Boxers get their noses broken all the time and keep fighting on. There was even the old bare-knuckler who had his nose broken so many times he had a doctor remove the bone inside (according to the old stories back then, but hey, he was crazy).

            I read a page that dispelled old wive's tales. When it came upon the story (That I never heard, personally) of nose-picking being potentially lethal, it quoted that very nose bone as being able to be pushed up into your brain. The notion that you can do that with the force used in picking a nose seems pretty absurd, but it suggests that it's possible by other means.

            I don't have the site anymore, so you'll have to take what I say with a grain of snot (harharhar).

            I must have misread the article. I found http://www.bitoffun.com/Funfacts.htm , which has it at the bottom of the page (use ctrl + f), and says it's actually a major vein.

                I doubt that, but I'll look for it just to be sure. Boxers get their nose broken in the rings all the time and if picking your nose can kill you, you'd best believe a cross from Rocky Marciano (whose punches clocked 1000 on a dynamometer) would have been slaughtering mofos left and right, hence why I doubt that argument.

                  Does this mean that there's some ninja assassin out there poking people in the head and watching them die? No, but certain spots are weaker and will incapacitate you faster than other. For example, groin, throat, solar plexus, temple, base of the skull, etc.
                  He means like "one-touch kills", dim mak shit. Not stuff like liver shots, groin, eye jabs, and the like. He's talking about killing blows.

                      I hope you are joking. Don't make me come up there.

                        In case you don't look back at my edited post, http://www.bitoffun.com/Funfacts.htm It's a ways down the page, so use the ctrl + f function if you don't know about it already.

                        I was wrong, apparently.

                          That's just about picking your nose and getting an infection though, not from a broken one Mega :)

                              That's why I admited to being wrong.

                              Or at least making a calculated mistake. Wouldn't want anyone finding out that I'm a logical fallacy.
