I’m watching National Geographic’s Fight Science. They are working their through Mixed Martial Arts and various Kung Fu styles, with world champions and exemplars demonstrating their techniques against pressure sensors and high-speed cameras. These are not just ordinary guys and gals from the fight school down the street: the MMA artists are armoured in muscles, the fighters have hardened their bones and muscles, and all have p0ractised for years.
Their statistics are impressive.: punches that can cause concussion and knockouts, kicks that can break ribs and bruise the heart, strikes faster than a snake. Neat!
