I dunno. It just bears a LOT of resemblance toward a Naruto character. Plus, having read some of your stuff in the boxing section, which seemed to be based entirely off of Hajime No Ippo... Well, I couldn't help but to assume...

Plus, I find it hard to believe that someone uses palms to strike pressure points. Using your finger knuckles is much more effective, since it gives you better penetration. But, hey, that's just my opinion. I'm no master of pp fighting.

Anywho, I'm just a very skeptical person when it comes to martial arts. I'll look up this Morris Dylan Chin fella. Is he Chinese American? His last name is very Chinese, but not so much his other names... Got I hope he's not an Ashida Kim type, who has a fake surname...

I believe it. Some pressure points can be "activated" from a strike to a large area, it doesn't have to be a pinpoint.

Hmm, before I say something stupid, I'd like to again point out that I'm admittedly ignorant about all but the most obvious pressure points...

But which pressure points can be effectively damaged by a palm strike? And, in which case would a palm strike be more efficient than finger knuckles (for pressure points)?

Like I said before it was my cousin all the time this isn't the first forum he has covered in BS and this is the second time he's done it in one of my profiles on forums.

Your almost like my cousin only difference you don't intentionally write BS off animes and you actually ask proper question and like i said Morris Chin is in my country he's my classmate so i don't think research him will help you find him since he's not famous in the world we're minor martial art learners so he can't be looked up but during the match the veteran was clearly holding back Morris knew and he was upset he wanted the pro to give him his all but i told him to be careful of what he wished for.

Now back to the question what does he mean by he attacks internally? cause he won't tell me

First off, I'd like to reject the comparison that you've made between me and your cousin. I'm nothing like either of you, as should be quite evident in our writing.

That, and I can easily discern BS. I'll admit that 8 years isn't a particularly long time in studying martial arts, but still, I'm yet to come across anything that resembles what you've described. 'Internal' attacks could just be over-glorified affects of a strike. For instance, I punch you in the solar plexus, you lose wind and feel like your insides hurt (OH NOEZ TEH INTERNAL STRYK). I could very well damage you internally, but...then again, you could get internal damage from falling off of your bike. Either way, its hardly as mystical as the right phrasing can make it seem.

Anyway, this 'pro' fighter... What does he compete in?

Hey Sanda you just reminded me of something now ! remember internal attacks I think it has something to do with internal arts or something and it isn't anything mystical and what do you mean by what he competes in his outfit or something?

Well, you said that the guy Morris beat/trained with was a pro -- as in professional. So I was wondering if he was a professional what? a pro boxer, kickboxer, mma fighter, etc.

Glad I could help you remember... What did you remember?

"gentle fist" ? I think it has something to do with smiling with your eyes closed for 10 minutes.
