I like the slow motion shot in the end.

Good camera work and cinematic quality.

On this last one, notice the uke-guy with his hands on his hips - he runs as our powergatherer is, well, gathering power and takes a dive BEFORE the powergatherer unleashes his torrential flood of zeus energy. You would think they would have had classes on how to act with skill. (But then again, it mattereth not, it would appear).

What in the name of all things sacred is that? I have never seen anything so ridiculous! And I thought my sensei was bad when it came to waffling about Ki!!!

I read about similar stuff at e-budo.com Our friend B. Baker got pretty upset when people told him that they didn't believe in this "no touch KO" stuff... Does anyone else believe this kind of stuff? I'd honestly like a serious discussion. Anyone? Me? I'm sure it's 100% BS.

Hey, I believe in the 'no-touch KO'!

It's called a 'Shotgun'. Hee hee!

Answers are only easy when they're incomplete.

He he! Well mr. B also stated that we (the resistance) were too narrow minded. Someone can get KO'ed without you touching them; I believe the talk ranged from "unexplainable illnes", heartproblems "for no apperent reason" and letting your friend do it; then the victim CAN be KO'ed without YOU touching him... LOL!

There also is a prize (1 million dollars) to anyone who can prove this "no touch KO". No supreises here: no one has taken the bet. Not even those who still claim it's possible. If they don't want the money, they could donate it or simply refuse it, right? Why NOT prove it?

Narrow minded or not, I don't believe in this bs and I don't believe in Santa either. You've got to be pretty dumb, pardon my french, if you do.

That's right, Paul. $1 million. If you can knock out someone with a technique from a distance, not touching him or using any object. It's over at www.e-budo.com

If you notice the timing on the one video the guy in the center starts falling before the "technique". My BS detector went into orbit. I also noticed one attacker did not fall down and the guy pushed him down-oops. Forgot is cue card.

Perhaps there is merit: halitosis, garlic, nasty teeth, or bean aura.

Perhaps we should have a redbuttbeano.com. After a hard night of bean burritos as the attacker runs your turn tail-well need I say more.

Uh, these guys need professional help...

This can be a very good business, there are a lot of stupid people around the world.

By the way, the website is almost unreadable because the background, i had to select the text on it... are they trying to hypnotize me?
