For some of you that don't do any type of martial arts, you might find this a bit corny or weird,

I was talking to one of my instructors earlier today and I asked him about a technique used to knock somebody out without touching them. He claimed it true and can be done. Using the Thai power of fire, if you build it up enough you can focus that energy into your opponent. It is called the Pushing Palm.
He used to train with Thai and built up that energy in himself. If you miss even one day of training you must start over. That was what happened to him after six months.


If anybody here on gmc knows more about this and/or knows how to create that energy please I really want to know. cool.gif

EDIT: Sorry, it's Ki (Chi), not Thai

That was my first reaction. Started to look more into it and found out it is actually true. It messes with your nerves and brain. I can't really explain it too well, but I want to find out how to build up that energy.

I think it's fake, but maybe you have to try and see to believe.

Well, I'm a skeptic.

This video shows how a guy can make a bell ring without any physical contact, so thats kinda cool.
http://youtube.com/watch?v=7FZjHAijc0k

but heres one where a guy that practices something similar gets embarassed:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEDaCIDvj6I

but if I could learn anything, it would be this:

EDIT: I just watched that last video I linked. Man, I forgot how cool that was...

The power of Mind over Matter

Some people in the Martial Arts community firmly believe in this. Kind of like a remote control that moves a toy car. The rite sidnal has to be sent and the object has to recieve it.
