the martial arts were developed over centuries and show great understanding of the physiology of the body. They had knowledge of the muscle groups and how to concentrate combined power and lightning acceleration into a millisecond at impact. The forces that practionishers of the arts can generate are amazing.

A friend threw himself at karate for about ten years, 4 - 5 nights a week, and eventually attained a 3rd or 4th Dan (black belt). One night he was attacked by a knifewielding robber and his accomplice. In a minute or so he smashed them so badly that one was in a coma for weeks. They had multiple broken bones, including arms broken in several olaces, ribs, collarbones etc. The most powerful blow he delivered to one of them broke the assailants femur ... his karate instructor (sensei) was amazed, saying that to break a femur (the big bone in the top of your leg) normally required an impact from something like a car at 30 km/hr!

The assailants recovered eventually and were charged (they were drug runners). My friend nearly got into the poo with the cops for hurting them within an inch of their lives, but he got off eventually. His reason was that he was drunk at the time, and somewhat lost control when the knife was pointed at his throat. :shock: Had he not been drunk, he would have disabled rather less severely. :)
