Default 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.

Your thoughts?

It;s not the pain that causes a ko.
It's the concussing of the brain against the inside off the skull that scrambles the equbrillium(spelling)

You got it. Although I'm sure having your balance scrambled AND having it hurt doesn't help.

Is that the martial art where you have to endure some kind of pain endurance test in order to "graduate", and that's what was happening to the woman?
I believe she was told if she passed out then she would fail. She got KTFO, was allowed to recover and continued to the end where she was told she had passed. I didn't quite get that bit.
They have to spend ages mentally preparing themselves, and they have to know the punches/kicks etc are coming. Only precisely delivered blows to certain areas by their highly trained fellow martial artists are allowed. This so called martial art would not be any use if they got hit with a real punch.
The only person that can take full blooded punches from a pro boxer without it hurting is Homer Simpson.

That performance would be good enough to get Homer in the heavyweght top 10 today. It could even get him a belt.
That stoppage was premature, BTW.
