Ever seen those "tough guys" at Ripley's?
If this thread doesn't belong on this forums, please move it to where it should be.
Anyway, I remember seeing that episode of Ripley's believe it or not, and it's about a certain martial art that includes making their student impervious to pain.
They've demonstrated a lady who gets hit with a chop to the neck and kick in the groin.
And a guy who was, again, struck to the neck by a martial arts expert and gets punched by four muscle bound guys in four directions (front, back, left and right neck) simultaniously.
Although at first glance it looks impressive, I wonder how would they do if they let a trained, hard hitting, licensed pro boxer hit them on the mug? It's not Tyson who is punching them. Just some guys who look like your average body builders.
I just figured, if they really are that tough and can endure pain, they should have let someone legit bring it to them and see if they can take it.
