I think theatrical performances of martial arts, no matter what style, are very rough glimpses of what an art has to offer and how it is really used.
I saw Kung Fu Hustle and thought it was entertaining, but by no means was it an accurate depiction of how an art is used. (Judging from the smiley, you think the same?)




you mean it isn't possible to leave a 50 foot hand print in a building? Nor is it possible to jump way up in the air, land on a bird, then jump back down to the ground?

HA! Next thing your gunna say is that there is no such thing as the easter bunny...

lies... all lies

Getting you guys back ON TOPIC and to REALITY

[this is a warning in case you were confused!]

maybe Buddha palm was referring to the energy centres in the hands.

I forgot to write before. There`s also a qigong form called 18 Buddha hands, which as everything has its variations.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear (read) Buddha palm is healing something, more that hurting someone. Although, beating up an attacker might heal him from the desire to hurt or rob you or anyone else ever again.

In his book Chia says that Buddha Palm is another term for Cosmic Healing Chi Kung.
I`m sure that that the name Buddha palm and the energy centers in the hands have some relation, since palms are more often used for healing than other parts of the body.

Oh and Fisherman, when did you become so mean?

Maybe this will be of assistance?

http://www.chionline.com/qigong/buddha.htm

Seems that is more esoteric in nature, not martial.

Oh no, the weapon gal!
Will a bottle of good wine make you less mean (towards me , I don`t care for the others )?

I'm quite partial to a CRATE of good wine... then I can use it for sword practice afterwards...

And please dont call me a "gal".

I am a "Lady Knight" or a Weapons Woman, but not a gal.

Gal is an abbreviation for gallon...

and dont forget to grovel before me, mine peasant!
