So lay it on me straight. How is this possible to withstand this? Is it ''chi''? Or just simply tensing your muscles?
He doesn't hit with the end of the wooden staff. That takes out a lot of power.
I can do similar stuff, though. Chi? I don't know, I just do the traditional exercises and it works, so maybe it's Chi.
thats irrelevant which part of the stick he hits him with
Ive seen other shit like getting full forced punches and laying on the tips of pointed swords. My point is, how do they do it, is just tensing your muscles?
>thats irrelevant which part of the stick he hits him with
Somebody's never taken high school level physics classes
>what is the iron skin technique
You can do it yourself you know. It's simple adaption.
Probably going to take several years of training though.
That being said, OP's webm might be acting but the technique itself is real.
absolute control of your body is a thing. some people can manipulate their heartbeat frequency only with their mind for example.
it's like pushing yourself to the max before you test your 1rm. train your body and mind to know what your body is really capable of. your mind can do awesome things with your body!
It's completely fucking relevant.
Look, its an impressive feat nonetheless, but he's getting only a fraction of the total force. He's also tensing and moving back at the moment of impact, and who knows if the other guy is pulling back slightly just before it connects. I'll bet the stick itself is intentionally brittle too.
It's physics, not magic. Ditto with most of these other shaolin "miracles". It's all dulled blades, leverage, and biomechanics.
Reminder that the entirety of CMA is the same physics as literally every martial art but "takes decades to master" due to inefficient training and being obfuscated behind decades-centuries of mysticism and pseudo-science bullshit.
Actual martial artist here (wrestled in school, boxing, BJJ blue belt almost purple and muay thai instructor) this thread is dumb as fuck. I've been full force kicked in the throat (we hit with the shin for anyone unaware of muay thai's kicking) it sucks but it isn't crippling, I also didn't see it coming. I continued sparring it just made breathing uncomfortable.
Tensing will certainly make that easier to bare. That being said to the people bitching it doesn't count because it wasn't the end of the stick it still impressive. The resulting moment from the neck to the hands will still be insanely high. They can't use the end of the pole because it would make breaking it extremely difficult. Given breaking it is still clearly the goal of the demonstration it would make zero sense to use the end.
TL;DR it's impressive but a useless skill. Also not magic.
I know a guy who tried to slit his own throat once. Spent ten minutes trying to saw through the rubbery tendons and arterial wall.
It's really simple. We're just way harder to damage than you think we are. You probably spend too much time watching Game of Thrones and shit.
In this webm they are attempting to display either iron shirt qi gong or their abundance of wei qi. Which may be the same thing, not really sure as I'm not familiar with iron shirt.
Wei qi is basically the qi that surrounds the body, they are trying to show off their ability to use this to lessen the blow.
Honestly I believe in qi and it's ability to work in the real world, but I think the number of people in the world who could use their wei qi to withstand a blow to the neck without any tricks are going to number less than 10 if that.
To get to that level one would need probably 30,000 hours of cultivating qi at least. So about 30 years.
Qi is in my experience real, but qi strong enough to affect the physical world is extremely rare, most people who claim to be able to use qi to attack/defend are bullshit artists.
Sorry, was watching a movie.
Yes, I am. Most people here are apparently full of shit. Yes, you can brute force this kind opf thing by hitting yourself over and over until you are "hard". 100 times a day is much too much, though. And you will get cancer. And die early, just like everyone else who does this kind of training for decades.
I don't really know how to explain the other way to train this - you just do the traditional exercises and the "Iron Shirt" comes by itself. It's nothing special, it's not an Asian invention, it's just a sign your training works.
For example, I break natural rocks with my hands for fun. I never trained for it, I don't do it regularly, it's just a side-effect and I do it when I feel like it.
This desu, I used to train Muay Thai and our gym went on a few trips to Thailand. Over there they literally kick trees with their shins until it doesn't hurt to do it any more, mentalists.
>Reminder that the entirety of CMA is the same physics as literally every martial art but "takes decades to master" due to inefficient training and being obfuscated behind decades-centuries of mysticism and pseudo-science bullshit.
It actually takes ~6 months to master if you have correct training. Maybe less if you're talented. I wouldn't know since I'm not talented. Stance work for hours? Not legit. 100s of reps punching air? Not legit? Super slow-mo Taijiquan? Not legit.
Those are all modern inventions or they were used as tests to weed out the assholes from the pupils.
Come on guys, use your head. Ever felt stiff or sore after you stood in a horse stance for an hour? Ever had elbow pain after you did gyaku tsuki for 500 times?
Now imagine you having to fight against an army with these problem. Can't and won't work. Not to mention all that stiffness becomes permanent after a while and actually reduces your punch power. Use your fucking head. If it feels like shit, it's probably not the best training routine.
It also helps to research how people trained before the big bodybuilding boom took us over.
>full force kicked in the throat
are you training kindergartners? what kind of kids are you "sparring" with if a full force kick to the throat only made it a bit hard to breathe...
Xingyiquan and some Sanda (ex-national trainer from China). Before that, I did Taijiquan (full-contact legend from Malaysia, also Black Belt Hall of famer). Before that, Goju Ryu Karate (ex-SWAT guy from Tokyo). Before that boxing (vice champion of Bavaria). Before that, Wado Ryu Karate (shit tier school, wouldn't recommend, but the later European Kumite Champion of Europe came from the same school and was my sempai).
The secret: There is no secret except correct teachings. The training also isn't supposed to leave you in shreds or sore for days. In actuality, it's pretty pleasant, like a good workout should be.
They all "just cook with water" as we say in Germany (meaning: There is no super special secret routine that they do). Don't overstrain yourself, get the correct teachings, and you can do it.
depends were in the throat, a good blow can easily crush the cartilage in your throat and fuck you up, not to mention its painful as fuck. i would say eyes are a pretty sure fire way of having a fight go your way, but yeah i agree.
yeah, but you said - "full force kick to the throat". what kind of fighters are you preparing, if a direct - FULL FORCE - kick to the throat was a mild inconvenience at best...
seriously - where do you "train" so I know which place to avoid like plague...
some retard in the united states did this, he ended up dying when he took baseball bat to the temple during a demonstration. but that guy would let people punch him in the throat and kick him the nuts.
shit like this is stupid, mas oyama is still the king of martial arts at least until someone else punches a bull to death.
It's a trick. Guy pulls the strike a couple times and then hits the target in the shoulder with a weakened rod. Look where it broke and the guy's posture. Sad that you believe in that shit, kiddo.

So is weed and I'm high as FUCK
That's a carefully practiced demonstration. Where they pick someone from the audience to hit them that relies on people fundamentally not wanting to hurt other people. The guy getting hit is tougher too a lot of the time, but there is usually some trickery involved to make it super impressive
Its balsa wood, a very light and brittle wood.
Kung Fu practitioners are all jokes in the mma community, they are all weak little Chinamen and weebs that get smashed in real fights
That being said, I always claim i practice kung fu when i win fights to mess with people, even though I box/do BJJ
Yes they are also sharp along the edges, but the way they were used was to stab. Flailing around trying to slash people with a sword is the best way to render yourself defenceless in a fight with sword and shield. This is why nobody tried to use them to slash people.
when will reddit leave
the accelleration of the stick is much less the more you go to the origin of the swing radius.
meaning the force is much less
also he moves into the blow and moves back when he's hit.
we cant tell what the structural integrity of the stick is just by looking at it
and yes muscles also help reduce the blow
Are you fucking retarded
It has everything to do with it
Mass x acceleration = force
The closer the to centrepoint of a rotating circle you are, the slower it will be spinning. The further out you are, the faster it will be spinning. Is that simple enough for your shitty 256mb brain to comprehend? Fuck man, i can hear the two cogs in your head grinding away from here, shitskull.
so I guess what you mean is:
M = F . r (rotary momentum is force times distance)
M = alpha . I (rotary romentum is rotary acceleration times moment of inertia)
alpha . I = F . r which leads to
F = (alpha . I) / r
because alpha and I are constant in this scenario the only variable is r
which kleads to your argument; glad I could help
no shit it still works
but stabbing is far better
an inch of the tip can kill easier than a foot of the blade
from a HEMA perspective he's just saying that most swords are used PRIMARILY (not solely) as thrusting weapons
notable exclusions would include cavalry sabres etc because you gotta cut down from horseback BUT the majority of blades are used as thrusting weapons
thrusts are also compact and small movements that don't leave you open to be stabbed
fuck off, fuckwit
