My friend's dad has worked in some sort of woodworking envoirnment for almost his whole life, and he can pound a nail into a board with his hand. Was it cool? Yes, does it mean my friend's dad is an X degree blackbelt? No.

Can the evolution of his hand to that point give you an advantage in martial arts? Yes.

Just my $0.02
