Martial Arts Topics / Olympics/elite athletes

I found this Mayo Clinic Proceedings article about genetics and athletic performance interesting.   It concerns all elite athletes and is apropo with the London games coming up.   I love watching the Olympics.  They are a great break from all the other drama.

Martial Arts Topics / Kung fu for airline stewards?
« on: May 04, 2011, 08:30:52 AM »
I took martial arts lessons in the early 80's and the insturctor who taught a modified ishinru style thought Kung Fu was not "effective" at stopping people.  He said he only knew one perhaps tow Kung Fu experts he would feel confident could handle themselves in a real life situation.  I am no expert.  Just wondering if this would be the best style for airline employees to train in for self defense:

Martial Arts Topics / Ripley's believe it or not.

I am not new to the public forum though this is my first post on "Martial Arts".

I don't know if I sound naive with this question here but I wonder if anyone else saw the cable show Ripleys with the segment showing where they show martial artists taking direct blows to the groin and throat.  How can they do this without injury?  Is this some sort of trick?  If the scrotum is above the pelvic bone I guess the blow would be deflected from the sensitive area.  But the blows to the Adams apple boggle my mind.  How can one prevent the cartilage in the neck from being crushed? 

What is the method of this?  Anyone know?
