Yes, the formaldehyde makes the muscles stiffer, but I removed the muscle and chiselled the discs and it was still very difficult to break the neck. It’s formaldehyde acting on flesh and muscle, not Adamantium!Cutting into a body that has been prepared for students is not at all the same to cutting into a fresh cadaver.
The vertebrae are seldom broken in a judicial hanging (with a 5 foot drop) , the spinal cord is usually snapped.And even less similar to one that is alive. And comparing the force needed for a vertebral fracture (an immensely strong bone) and cord dissection to a fracture of the hyoid (one of the weakest bones in the human body) is more than a little disingenuous.
Eating too many peas is potentially lethal.😂Regardless, I never said it was lethal, I said it was potentially lethal, and that remains true, no matter how much you want to quibble. And it's certainly more dangerous than changing the technique slightly to use it as an unbalancing technique.
I think MAs underestimate how difficult it is to kill a sober, uncooperative, fully-resisting, aggressive opponent without a weapon. Very few people are killed in the boxing ring or the cage. Unarmed, Eastern combat arts like to suggest they’re art is ‘spookily‘ dangerous when they’re are no more so than boxing or wrestling etc
