You think you're tough? You want some of this? You're messin' with the wrong guy! Wait til you get a taste of my chi balls!

This karate master gets a little too far out on the limb of believability, as he wows the spectators by knocking opponents to the floor at distance, with his "no-touch" chi attacks.
(He hurls an invisible ball of his chi at them)

No one can stand up to this master of disaster! The bigger they are, the harder they fall!
"I've flatlined several people," he boasts.

Until he takes on a 125 lb chemist, who also happens to be a non-believer in the non existent phenomena.

Unable to topple the turtle-necked geek, even though his chi balls are practically bouncing off the guy's chin, the martial arts showman displays a set of pretty impressive back pedal maneuvers:

The geek was obviously a non believer (that matters?) and may have even had his tongue in the wrong position when smacked in the face with karate-man's chi balls.

Do not doubt my mystic power

I watched the video. The guy is fairly impressive but I wonder if all of it is true (did happen).

Uhhhh...

I don't want to undermine anyone's belief in this particular individual, but to me it looks like pretty obvious horsesh!t.

Of course it's all fake. We *know* it's fake.

He and many others make careers of this for the exact same reason a guy like David Copperfield makes money doing things like disappearing the Statue of Liberty, a 747, and the tower of London.

We all like to suspend our belief in reality for the sake of entertainment. The prospect that someone might actually be able to do this stuff is provocative and a whole lot of fun.

All he needs is a mustache, a perm, and some dancers.

I agree, hypnosis. A friend's mother was a professional hypnotist and if she told someone that they were stuck to their desk, then they were stuck to their desk. I think that perhaps it is even easier in a group setting.

As fake as Steven Seagal is, I'm embarrassed to admit he beat me in a one-on-one fight to the finish. He had dropped so many donuts that I slipped and fell, and he sat on me.

Oh well.

I find it hard to believe the participants weren't part of the ruse. Looked extremely fake to me.

That thought crossed my mind.

The secret of David Copperfield's success is that he never lets the audience see his chi balls.

Pressure points are real.
Chi balls are BS.

That's precisely how charlatans make careers out of their scams: they mix in a little truth with their fairy tales.
