    In my first WC school, one of the green sash was trying to convince me that there was a mystical punch that could kill an oponent without touching him, and that Bruce Lee invented it and that he was the only one who could do it.

    I never went back...

    I talked to two kids who were training under him last year, and they started preaching the same thing about this misterious punch that could kill without even hitting your opponent.

    I laughed my ass off...

    They said that they secretly train it at home

    I was crying by this point and walked away...

    How retarded would one have to be to believe that!?!?!?!

    I think Bruce Lee is roling in his grave right now. I even explained to them how this was physicly impossible. I even went to the basics as I explained to them that for every ACTION, there is a reaction, and that without two surfaces making contact, there was no possibility for a REACTION. And also that the air between the attackers hand and the defender's body was not compact or "solid" enough to cause any REACTION other than on a molecular level. ANyways, they answered by telling me that it was a secret technique and that I wasn't open to it so I couldn't understand it.

    By the way, this guy also believes he can levitate.
