One Response to TV Tonight: Ninja Attack!

    The mystique of the ancient martial arts have baffled scientists and scholars for ages. For a couple of hollywood special effects specialists to attempt to debunk something others have spent a lifetime doing may make for good entertainment but is otherwise ludicrous.

    The art of channeling your Chi is today most often practiced in the form of Ying Gong in making your body stronger than iron and demonstrated mostly in breaking stuff with soft parts of your body or Chi Gong in channeling enough heat in ones hands to boil water. Legend has it that in the past, this same Chi was capable of Ching Gong, making the body light enough to jump high or skip across water or walk on rice paper without breaking it.

    Some arts still defy physics today while other aspects of these arts have long been lost in time and have manifested in nothing more than legends, movies, and comics. For someone today to debunk something no one left living can demonstrate is not only moot but offensive to those remaining who practice aspects of it still. Well, at least it makes for good ratings…=)
