Do you believe that there are myths about the martial arts?

With so many schools of the martial arts in business now, so many dojos and kwoons and gyms,etc.,is it actually possible that there are still myths in people's minds about the martial arts? Do you believe that there are certain myths about the martial arts,especially myths that you would like to see put to rest?

I want to see Dim Mak in action! Preferably in a MMA fight... and even better... let the ninja be Tito's next opponent. Oh and I wanna see someone use a pressure point to put someone to sleep (again, in a mma fight).


Thanks to NikosCC for the sick sig!

I'm pretty sure it was. Luckily for him, he belonged to the 60% that isn't receptive to magic, so he'll survive when the grandmaster decides to come to the UFC and start knocking people out with his evil eye.

Stephan Bonnar needs more than tap on the forehead or a "touchless knockout" to put him down.

ROFL, I didn't expect to see Bonnar in that video.
Interesting how it wouldn't work on anyone that wasn't his student.

what a bull...
now watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXUgZNKyNXs
commentator says that this shit is highly secret and they were allowed to film only because there were US Special Forces instructors present. at about 1 minute in, where the Airborne guy tries to punch him in the face, the instructor comments that they do it slow because he's afraid for soldiers health.

im sure that there are specific ares of use for skill like that

Technique is similar or the same as Systema.
How it works, who the **** knows...
