    His "tiger claw" can empty your face of tissue before (or after) your jab cross hook combination does shit.

    If he's feeling MERCIFUL, he'll just use jiujitsu.

    That's about that.

    You just watched Harold Howard defeat a Muay Thai fighter/wrestler with point karate and bouncing experience. That's like the time I took out the helicopter in GTA: San Andreas with my bare hands.

    Not dickish at all. This is all in fun. There are obviously more efficient techniques out there but, as we are seeing in modern MMA, pulling off those bullshit maneuvers are cool. (Where's Jon Jones and Anthony Pettis).

    Well, that's an interesting definition and by that definition there is no way to logically prove that dim mak works unless I call your interpretation of "mythic" propaganda bullshit which only leads down a stupid tangent and I'm too tired today to go down that road.

    I would propose to you that it does effect the flow of "energy", say to the heart, very similar to the way you described before. So over all does the dim mak technique work? Scientifically it does. When you get all these fucking vodoo mystic bullshit cult assholes and the dumbasses willing to believe them starting to talk then you get all this mysticism crap about one touch knock outs. I can do a one touch knock out. My fist touching your jaw.

    For the record my kickboxing instructor dies because "dim mak" which is a rare but recorded injury in striking arts. (he got punched in the heart causing irregular heart rhythm
    m resulting in death)

I've seen it actually work once, used by an ER doc who said that was the first time it actually worked for him.

    So there is scientific precedent for a strong enough, well placed strike to the chest disrupting the heart rhythms. But the whole "hit the right spots and screw their chi flow" stuff I call bullshido on.

    For the record the "Dim Mak" is a proven technique. Of course it fall under the premise of being able to snap somebody's neck.
