National Geographic K.O. George Dillman.

Aired on the History channel, National Geographic authorized the TV show, "Is It Real?" to scientifically investigate several mysterious groups from around the world. These groups claim to have special mystical powers. The central figure examined on the program was a martial arts splinter group which is headed by the celebrated Karate author, George Dillman. Mr. Dillman is the leader of a abundant following of supporters who practice his system of martial arts which he calls,  Kyushu jitsu This word  Kyushu jitsu  has several meanings depending on the Japanese characters used. In this case, it means  to cause illness or to wound , (through hand to hand combat techniques) by way of physical strikes to acupuncture points found on the human body. This Dillman theory basically states that by using the power of  Chi,  when entered into  two or more pressure points  of the body, by means of a light strike, would render an attacker unconscious, when physically struck by way of hand or foot. These two or more strike combinations are implemented by use of the element theory, (see chart on site) used by doctors of acupuncture, to heal illness. Martial arts systems use this same element theory in a different way, to destroy health.

But the newest Dillman theory claims the ability to knock out a person, without touching them what so ever! This has become the new driving force from the Dillman camp. The question that first arises is, was Dillman the first to produce these pressure point theories? The answer is NO. These techniques of striking one pressure point to enhance the result of the next strike is as old as fighting it self. As well, the legend of projecting Chi across open space to incapacitate the enemy is a fable of Chinese folk tales from long ago. The first appearance of hitting points started in China during the Sung Dynasty and can be traced back to India. If the element theory has been in practice for hundreds even thousands of years, and the legendary tales of projecting Chi force dates back to the pre-Shaolin temple era, what really is Dillman's Claim to fame? Is it that George Dillman has brought back interest to the general martial arts community? Yes, Mr. Dillman did in fact popularize Pressure Point usage to the karate community. The traditional martial arts community has no problem recognizing the element theory (striking one point to enhance the effect of the next striking point), thousands of martial artists world wide study this very theory. The problem traditional systems find is in Dillmans method of teaching.

The question National Geographic had to consider, can the power of Chi really be projected across a distance to incapacitate an oncoming attacker? Along with the Dillman Group, National Geographic has also investigated an Islamic religious sect. There claim to fame is their practice of stabbing themselves with sharp objects. The third is a mystic, a self proclaimed prophet, who declares that his large following comes to see him for his ability to manipulate future events. At first viewing, it may not be clear, what these three have to do with one another. We will examine, first this very point to see what these groups have in common.

IS IT REAL?

As the "Is It Real?" program opens, Dillman vocally makes the statement ,  "I can knock out anyone without touching them" .  The "Is It Real?" team filmed several examples of Mr. Dillman demonstrating his  no touch knock out  technique on students in one of his seminar classes. At first glance, it appears that Mr. Dillman is really doing what he said he could do. Placing a sheet barrier between him and a student-subject, Dillman focuses his secret power, called Chi, at the student and in time, the student falls to the ground! Other clips show Mr. Dillman focusing his Chi on a line of students which eventually forces them backward. Many of them fall to the ground.

Medical doctors comments.

"Is It Real?" interviews several medical surgeons who testified that there is nothing mystical at all about these. Suddenly the "Is It Real" editors, cut back to the Dillman seminar. Within the class, an "investigator" had also been planted. This investigator is currently a professor at the university of Milan, known for exposing misleading mystical performances. Would the Dillman team be able to knock out the investigator with Dillman's no touch knock out technique? Throughout the time spent at Dillman's seminar, no one was able to cause the professor to even become dizzy, let alone Knock him out! Dillman, in a later interview was asked the question, why didn't it work on our investigating professor? Dillman's reply was ,...  "he was not a believer"...  ( BINGO)!  When he made this statement he indicated that it only works  if you are a believer . Then Dillman, in making this statement, with the understanding that he made a serious mistake, side steps his mistake by making the statement that,... If a man places his tongue in a certain position in his mouth or if a man lifts one of his big toes off the ground,... that no one could knock him out ??? Don't you think we owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Dillman for revealing the hidden techniques which nullify all of Dillman's dreaded knock out techniques,  (Thanks for the tip George!!!)  Is Dillman trying to say that this professor was lifting his toe, and falsifying a scientific investigation, or is he covering up some type of hidden agenda?

Is It Real, felt that the long awaited question had been answered, not by the Is It Real staff, but by George Dillman himself! Mr. Dillman's predictable statements, Changed from, " I can knock out anyone", to "He was not a believer" or " His tongue is in the wrong position"  or " he must be lifting his big toe"  has very definite implications. But here is something shown on the film that "Is It real?" didn't pick up. The time factor involved. If in fact Dillman had knocked out anyone, how long did it take Dillman to do it? A minute, two minutes, five minutes or more? The question is, if the technique really did work, how long does it take to perform the knock out? and can this be applied to a fast moving combat or street attack situation? The answer,...... If it takes seconds let alone minutes, it has no martial arts use at all !!!

The Is It Real team ends the documentary filming with the comment that, these individuals, the Islamic religious sect, the false prophet and Mr. Dillman, instill a deep  belief system  into there individual devotees. These charismatic personalities are in the eyes of scientific inquiry  unproven . Although they have the operational appearance of functioning,  They only seem to work in a controlled environment.  By Dillman's own admission, The power of his Chi and his so called ability to knock out any individual, is determined by  a belief system , and is not determined by Dillman's Chi powers.

 

Touch versus No-touch Knockout

I'm so tired of hearing about the so called touch and no touch knockouts. Fake, Fake, Fake!

Let's look at just what is happening when these clowns, the Dillman's of the world, (Steve Cooper, Luis Larios, Leon Jay, Matt Brown, and many others; once again almost all of these men are, or were, students of Dillman), do their Touch & No-touch Knockouts.

Everyone that we, you and I, have seen knock someone out using so called Touch and No-touch karate techniques, this is what happened. The so called master, (Ha!), uses a uki which 90% of the time just happens to be one of their own students, to demonstrate the knockout on. The Uki just stands there while the so called master (Ha!) activates or stimulates a certain meridian point, be it one or more location on the unki's arm, leg, etc. Next the so called master (Ha!) strikes the uki hard enough against the head (again 90% of the time) or other target, and the person drops looking all confused and disorientated. Next a big deal is made in a rushed manner (for effect) to revive the uki. Next everybody watching ooh's and ah's as the so called master (Ha!) struts around looking all pompous and proud.

Now let's look at what would really happen on the street against a person other than one of the so called master's (Ha!) students. First, the would-be attacker will not just stand there and allow the master (Ha!) to hold their hand, arm, etc., and tap on the meridians. What in fact would happen 90% of the time, the so called master (Ha!) would get his face punched in and his tail beat. The only real knockout that most of us have seen comes from that of a boxer's punch to the face or a real fight on the street, FACT.

It's a shame that these men go around making claims that they know to be untrue and that hundreds if not thousands of gullible people get scammed paying hard earned money to either learn or see such bull shit. Wake up people!

All I'm going to say about the No-touch knockouts is what National Geographic's statement said about Dillman and his band of merry men.   *** Dillman vocally makes the statement , "I can knock out anyone without touching them" . The "Is It Real?" team filmed several examples of Mr. Dillman demonstrating his no touch knock out technique on students in one of his seminar .  When it didn't work! Dillman's reply was , "he was not a believer" ( BINGO)! When he made this statement he indicated that it only works if you are a believer. Then Dillman, in making this statement, with the understanding that he made a serious mistake, side steps his mistake by making the statement that , If a man places his tongue in a certain position in his mouth or if a man lifts one of his big toes off the ground, that no one could knock him out ??? Don't you think we owe a debt of gratitude to Mr. Dillman for revealing the hidden techniques which nullify all of Dillman's dreaded knock out techniques, (Thanks for the tip George!!!) .  What else needs to be said.
