    Watch out with those lips, because I just may have some use for them.

    Yeah, those lips of yours will definitely be useful.

    Well, given that we agree it's impossible to demonstrate, then by definition anyone selling it is doing so based on false claims.

    If you and I agree that pigs can't fly, and anyone anywhere were to sell flying pigs, by definition we would agree those claims were false.

    Once again, a logic class would help you with stuff like this. And I do sincerely think you'd dig it.

    He has narrowed his vengeance down to San Francisco. I think it will be a while before we see a dojo storm.

    Ok. Quick example.



    Is any claim here able to be substantiated?

    From the actual claims of this techniques dominance to the implied claims of prowess in the demo at the start?

    And to keep the video's rolling. Boxer vs robber.

    yes most of them could be substantiated if you were in the same room, simply holding a pad and seeing what power was generated would easily see if it was an effective strike or not

    the one to the side i can do reasonably well,, it will certainly break your nose, may be with practice i could do your cheek bone, its not uncommon to get fractures to the cheek bone through flailing arms playing soccer, so its plausible

    but breaking the cheek bone isnt really a plus, in the situation, its main advantage is they neither expect it or see it coming. which would be a problem if they were expecting it, but thats the same for any strike,

    so hit them and move, then reassess the situation, wouldn't expect either to be out cold, not with my level of expertise, but id expect them to be shaken with a splatted nose, mean while im 30 yards away

    Can it be demonstrated as a self defence method?

    yes of course it can, but you will need to follow me around till some one attacks me from the side, can you get someone to stand there whilst you depress their cheek bone, that may prove difficult and expensive

    Of course it can we just have to abide by a bunch of impossible conditions.

    Which is terribly convenient for those making the claim.

    Well, given that we agree it's impossible to demonstrate, then by definition anyone selling it is doing so based on false claims.

    If you and I agree that pigs can't fly, and anyone anywhere were to sell flying pigs, by definition we would agree those claims were false.

    Taking this, and everything else you've said in this thread into consideration (nothing you've said has anything to do with anything anyone else has said)... I know the r-word is no longer the proper word, but I honestly do believe that you have some sort of mental handicap.

    In that case, I won't engage with you. I don't want to be that bully.123
