Hi all,

Thought this might be of interest. It's some of the recent National Geographic special on George Dillman and its also features Leon Jay. I'll host on my server for a little while for your viewing pleasure!

I won't be online this weekend, so I'll look forward to the obvious discussion that I'm going to find on monday! Enjoy and have a good weekend folks!

He moved people in line at Starbucks????

If you have your tounge in the wrong position you an nullify a chi knock out????

If you raise one toe and press down the other you can nullify a chi knockout????

Could I hear some input from somebody who knows about this stuff before I go off and make a fool of myself?

Interesting.

I always use this description when tasting different cuisine...which unfortunately doesn't taste good to my palate.

No touch KO...sorry folks..B.S.

I would be very interested to see what Scott has to say about this. Unfortunately Dillman is now promoting DBZ. He has a kid who looks to be about 13 with a black belt throwing chiballs at people? We need a BS section in the forum and that video should be the first to make it in. I'm very disappointed.

It kind of makes you wonder what all those "chi" people would have come up with if DBZ never existed.

You know, at one time (1970's) Dillman was a well respected martial artist.

He is definately on a downward slide.

This is 100% BS

I have nothing more to say!

Again it bothers me that he has the Ryukyu Kempo signature on his lapel when he does not even teach the Ryukyu Kempo curriculum.

Oyata should have killed him when he had the chance. I havent "heard" the video yet because I am at work. I'll post what I think of this later.

Kind regards,

Raul

For me I think the methods they are using on the clip are dependant on hypnotic suggestion (or similair).

I do beleive that PP knockouts are achievable with (significant)phisical touch, however applicable would be a different story.

If people are happy to pay the likes of Dilman then good luck to them, I just hope that no one gets seriously hurt.

The no touch stuff I view as utter garbage at this point.

All my respect for Dillman has left the building!

As long as I hold my tongue 'wrong' or wiggle my toes I have no fear of no touch ko's.

Very interesting not having seen George in 20 years.

If anything I would say he is a victim of his own success.

It is very apparent the individuals there are being maniuplated (such as putting a large shill at the business end of the line), and relying on autosuggestion. Seen many places.

George has served many masters of his own choosing over the years. He was somebody who did promote traditional karate. He did push everyone, everywhere to consider how kata technqiue could be used, and apparently followed his own advice that how good you look in forms is unimportant, so much so he's gone into magic acts. Wally Jay's son seems to have gone along for the ride with his own legitimate training, when you're after the cash you always follow the cash flow and the marks after all (I'm sure something like this was said by PT Barnum).

I would suggest if offered to feel a No Touch KO, take the ride and reach out and touch them first.

But then what the heck do I know, I just do karate.
