I have no idea what I just saw. Did the old guy think he was an airplane?

When reality meets some strange metaphysical mysticism, the concrete of the actual will always prove itself. The stranger thing that will happen is that the old dude will do like countless others like him and rationalize a way out: He wasn’t prepared enough. His ki was a little under the weather that day. And he’ll go about his business as usual and no one in his entourage will examine the situation for what it was….that this fake crap never, ever works…. Chi balls don’t work, magic mumbo jumbo coming from the fingers don’t work. And those that think that you can use the Force will still believe it, no matter the evidence against it. Funny….and sad.

Butterfly

You said it.

Just once, just one time, I would like to to see a "master" of such high weirdness suck it up and publically state that they were wrong about the skills they claimed, that they were sorry for what they had done and that they were going to stop teaching it.

I see a difference between outright fakes, frauds and "scam-a-rai" and bascially decent people that are simply deluded--ya know the folks that honestly "belived" that they could do it.

The former deserve nothing but contempt and scorn--and maybe a lawsuit.

The latter--pity.

Which group they end up in, depends on how they react to their claims being debunked.

Open-mindedness and an inquisitive nature (including being on a forum like this) is the best way to avoid the "frog under the coconut shell" (big fish in a small pond) syndrome.

The young Karate guy hardly even hit him. I think that he laid on the ground like that due to embarassment or to later have some wild concocted story of why he lost. Unbelieveable!

Matt should have led with this clip.

The possibility for inquery into human behavior seems limitless. Reality really can be a wonderful thing. We spend so much time and energy protecting ourselves from it. I believe that possibly the only reason to practice any art, martial or otherwise is to help us to see reality clearly, and empower us bare it with some courage and dignity.

Wow! Hilarious and sad at the same time, like Butterfly said.

CXT,

For me, when looking at this, I really see the old guy as “believing” his BS. You don’t go into a public venue against someone bigger and stronger than you unless you think you are going to be delivering the ‘whoop’n’ to someone else. You even see the surprise on his face as he’s wiping the blood from his mouth that seems to say (and I know, I am putting words into the video): ”WTF! This shouldn’t have happened.”

But, he won’t let this bit of trouble stop him from his belief….so he’s peddling things sincerely, despite this evidence to the contrary. Therefore, the show is not for the sake of self-abasement…I got the honest impression that he was there to prove his mettle. And this little stoppage is just a small test of faith. Problems begin, however, when all you get are tests of faith that offer no leniency to you unless you practice within your own group who already know how to behave.

Sorry old dude! No absolution today.

-B
