    Stan Lee's Super Humans

    The History channel is airing an episode of Stan Lee's super humans, titled "Killer Punch" featuring a Shaolin Monk...I didn't see a posting for this but looks like a good show airing on 8/12/10. Here's the link. http://www.history.com/shows/stan-le...sodes/#slide-2

    Yan Ming again!

    Warrior monk Shi Yan Ming shocked the world by moving to New York in 1992, marking the first time that a Shaolin monk has ever defected from China. By harnessing the power of Qi, or vital energy, he's taken Bruce Lee's infamous "one-inch punch" to a new level.
    Wasn't he the first monk to teach dapaoquan in America too?

    So the first episode of the show...not bad but not much depth either so expect some misinformation about Kung Fu and Shaolin but should be interesting to watch the punch results.

    The Best Line

    There was a smattering of talk about Qi which led to the line later in the segment "Yeah, it looks like he has lot of Qi in him" by the host.

    Monk Shi Yan Ming on Stan Lee's Superhumans

    anyone see it? i dvr'ed it and am watching it now. testing the force of some of his punches and one inch punch.

    im ready to hear criticisms:
    - when they broke sticks over his body they broke them with mechanical advantage, not qi
    - he pulled his one inch punch back on the high speed
    - wtf one inch punch has nothing to do with qi
    - etc.

    btw Superhumans is a cool show. watch it.

    Is it just me or is it every time Yan Ming's name come's up on this forum people try to discredit him?

    And no Gene he wasn't the first monk to teach large cannon, the add was misinterpreted, it was the first time he taught large cannon in the states.

    772 pounds of force to the face.

    2 inches of deflection to the chest.

    One inch punch (that was at least 3 inches) was put in car accident terms In laymen’s terms it was greater than a 30 mile per hour crash which is what they say about everybody and everything.

    From fight science

    Karate guy 816
    TKD guy 917
    Boxing guy 993

    Of course they didn't take body weight into account when making the "comparisons", so much for science.

    All I'm saying is a one inch punch can be performed by someone with correct body mechanics with no knowledge of qi.

    I don't think Bruce Lee was into qi and he had a great one inch punch.

    that fight science show reminds me of when you overhear a conversation between two people debating about something they don't understand fully.

    Just watched an episode of Myth Busters, they were testing the myth from Kill Bill about punching your way out of a coffin...they put MMA fighter John Fitch on his back and measured his 3" punching power rated at 1400 lbs of force. Very impressive.

    I remember that crap. The boxing guy was a huge gorilla and the kung fu guy was a 10 year old girl. Gee, I wonder who is going to hit harder?

    I posted 'in America', Shaolin

    Click that link, Shaolin, and you can take up this discussion there.

    As for our other OT tangents, Fight Science is discussed here and Mythbusters is discussed here (among other places..)

    Some no touch KO guy is gonna be on next week's episode of Stan Lee's Superhumans

    From wikipedia, the 9/30 episode:

    Daniel meets martial artist Tom Cameron of Chicago, Illinois, the "Human Stun Gun" who focuses the power of "Chi" to deliver knockdown blows to opponents without touching them; Salim Haini of Marrakech, Morocco, whose incredible gastronomical fortitude has earned him the title of the "Man Who Eats Anything"; Ron White of Austin, Texas whose super mental focus allows him to memorize and recall complex information quickly, even while distracted; and Greg Poe, a test pilot from Florida who claims he can withstand incredible G-forces.
