Martial Artist, or Magical Artist? You decide.

This is a National Geographic video of Sensei George Dillman performing one of his magic shows. There. I said it. Now you know what I think about it. To quote Carl Sagan, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." Be wary of any martial art that is only effective against those who believe in it--or people without big toes. Such nonsense!


  1. I like this video as an example of believing too much in your own press, and or, not sparring often enough with partners who don't mind hitting you. After all in the end this looks like an ordinary knock out.

  2. I call it "drinking the dojo Kool-Aid."
