    Chris Crudelli's KUNG FU



    This looks to be a beautifully shot series in which he gets off the standard kung fu tourist track and shows some interesting oddities (hard, deforming iron palm, &c). Also, it looks like there will be at least one segment with live stick sparring and another on shuai jiao (there are throwing dummies ~1 minute in).

    Anyone who has hands like that is pushing the limits where you have issues with using the hand versus having a club on the end of your arm.

    No need to train it to that extant.

    I would rather have a hand that works as well as be able to hit people hard.

    Those hands look more like they are just swollen than they have developed callouses and thickened bones. Is there anywhere I could see an explanation of what's happened to them physiologically?

    Mind Body and Kick Ass Moves made me angry, with Crudelli showing all his bullshit chi tricks, and fawning over other people's bullshit chi tricks.

    This, however looks quite good.
