1. George Dillman: No-Touch Knockout

George Dillman’s martial arts background is no joke. Dillman himself is a joke, but not his martial arts background. The guy was national Karate champion 4 years in a row. He has trained with Bruce Lee, and even Muhammad Ali. He is a 10th degree black belt. His real accomplishments are nothing compared to his fake ones however.

Dillman claims to be able to manipulate a person’s Qi (a sort of all encompassing form of energy a person has, similar to the Force), in such a way to make them go completely lifeless.

Finally, some reporters from the National Geographic (video below) attempted to document this on camera. Low and behold, Dillman was unable to knock a person out without touching them on camera.

Dillman’s explanation for the failure was as follows:

“The skeptic was a totally non-believer. Plus — I don’t know if I should say that on film — but if the guy had his tongue in the wrong position in the mouth, that can also nullify it [Qi power]. You can nullify it — you can nullify a lot of things. In fact, you can nullify it if you raise those two big toes! If I say I’m going to knock you out, and you raise one toe, and push one toe down… I can’t knock you out. And then, if I go to try again, you reverse it. If you keep doing this, I won’t knock you out.”

  1. I’m always blown away by this. I’ve got 20 years of martial arts training and do you know what I always say when I walk into a school? Treat me like a white belt. Seriously… any time you walk into a school where you want to learn, start from the bottom, and never assume you know a lot. A lot of these guys would have saved themselves some serious embarrassment by simply telling the truth and humbling themselves.

    And as for Kiai mastery… it’s a myth, guys. Anyone claiming they can control someone completely using only ‘energy’ is depending on the other person as an accomplice. It’s kinda ridiculous that people even claim it works, let alone pitting themselves against professional fighters to prove it.
