Quote:

If we know how to make the body hurt and break it's systems down, the strength/toughness/speed of the guy no longer matters. Then, you're not trying to hit them so hard that they hurt, you're making the body THINK it's been hit so hard that it hurts. Thus, much harder for them to resist.
Thus, our techniques work, and therefore we get out of the situation in a single piece, not many




Interesting viewpoint. The "perception" of the opponent is something that I do not always consider (as opposed to creating the actual damage), but I can see where that may be useful in some situations.

think you have the time and cool head to think about this in real life? sounds good on paper but i dunno.

Could work on a calmer opponent though, you mean like putting a gun to their head, pulling the trigger and making a banging noise, but not actually shooting them kind of thing? I guess it could work in a physical situation
