the guy in the video throwing people with his jedi powers is Kozo Nishino - who is the sensei and subject of the guys who wrote the advertisement disgused as research you referenced.

NATO could use this guy!

The part I like best is where he has all his students running backwards at a tremendous rate of knots, right across a field. Good thing they did it outside!

Does anyone actually believe this stuff?

It's a mystery to me how he gets so many people to play along.

BTW - the title of that "research paper" says it all:

"A Hypothetical Mechanism for the Generation and Transmission of Ki-energy" (my underlining).

Note also:

"Without having a scientific model, we cannot advance the research. Therefore, we will present in this article a hypothetical model for the mechanism of how Ki-energy is generated, transmitted through air and received by another individual. Obviously, this model is still preliminary, and it needs further rigorous investigation."

As to the last sentence, I agree!

A paper of equivalent scientific weight might be:

"Is the invisible, intangible spaghetti monster in my garage green or red - a hypothetical mechanism for determining the color of pasta-based supernatural life-forms".

We can all see that such a paper is necessary in order to advance research in this area!

Gav,

Should moderators be using their posts to bash members of this forum?




I have been asked to review this thread, and have done so. Lord knows I am the last one to avoid a good bit of mud slinging on here, but I would like to think that any such response i have made has been provoked by anothers action, ie. post content; and not been unprovoked other than having an agenda against the poster.
Gavin, you have taken a dislike to Ed, we get it. I dont see any reason for your reaction to his opening post on here, which was actually very unjudgemental and reasonable.
I am asking you to take a breath, and moderate your own responses on here. You get enough 'dragonballers' in your forum as it is, so I find it amazing that you would want to take a good thread off topic so readily.
Chill dude, and I will try and heed my own advice also

I haven't taken a dislike to Ed per-say, well I have, but that is over the past couple of years of discussing stuff with the venom filled pussball (doh! Sorry Cord. Que Brian you can bitch again). Mate this isn't an Internal Martial Arts forum, is a speculative fire range for porn lovers to discuss sex, ooops Martial Arts. I'm just trolling here for personal amusement, no other agenda other than that. Just a laugh, which is what I've had so I'll take my leave now as Cordy baby is one few guys on the forum whom still carries some clout in my eyes!

Brian - I resigned my Mod position ages ago as it wasn't something I wanted my name against anymore....but the speed of tectonic plate shift is quicker than stuff here. I personally would've sacked me ages ago.

By the way, could someone send me all the royalties from these DVD's, books and seminars I'm selling? I ain't seen a f*cking penny from them yet..

Thanks guys!

The guys in the videos are just silly. Unfortunately, some people believe what they see without question. It's okay with me,but don't jump down my throat because we don't agree.

Kno whut I'm sayin' homeskillet!

Gavin,

I've always respected your posts and you personally. I loved the combat arena clip you posted way back. I just didn't see why you went after Ed like that. BUT, seeing how he didn't mind and you don't either I guess I was apparently being nosey rosey!! See ya round.

don't be too hard on Ueshiba, he was old in the video and, like good Aikidoka, his students were reacting the way they were expected to react. so I'd say the video shows the power of respect.

Gavin, Cord - no hard feelings. not taken personally at all. actually, I don't know what Gavin is even protesting. He still hasn't given any opinion/advice as to the thread topic or referenced 'study'.
He comes across as a babbling drunk with Tourette syndrome who randomly yells angry obscenities to passerbys.
