Fake grand master exposed by National Geographic TV

 The internet is full of videos of people or martial artists pretending to have super powers, and most of them are demonstrating their abilities with their loyal students who make the story of their master so real.

These master mostly are not accepting challengers because they know they are fake, and some of them were beaten up by real fighters.

George Dilman is one of those masters who were exposed, and luckily for him that it was only by TV and not by a fighter.

George Dillman is an American Karate master, born in November 23, 1942. He is popular for using pressure points. His style is called  Ryukyu kempo karate.

Dillman began martial arts training in 1961 with Harry G. Smith. He went on to study with Daniel K. Pai, Robert Trias, Seiyu Oyata, Hohan Soken, Wally Jay and Muhammad Ali.

Dillman is the co-author of several martial arts books co-written with Chris Thomas, including Kyusho-Jitsu: The Dillman Method of Pressure Point Fighting; Advanced Pressure Point fighting of Ryukyu Kempo; Advanced Pressure Point Grappling: Tuite; and Pressure Point Karate Made Easy. He has also produced a DVD instructional series on pressure point technique.

Dillman has espoused the use of chi manipulation to cause touchless knockouts and other effects. Such techniques have never been proven. Investigator Joe Nickell recounts when Massimo Polidoro and Luigi Garlaschelli investigated Dillman for the TV show Is It Real?. They set up a large curtain and stationed one of Dillman's students behind it, unable to see when Dillman attempted to send his chi punches at him. The student did not react to the chi and "simply stood looking puzzled, awaiting the chi force that never came". Polidoro and Garlaschelli speculated that "the feat depended on the power of suggestion". When Dillman attempted to knock Garlaschelli over with chi powers, Garlaschelli stated that when his (Garlaschelli's) eyes were closed it was easier to lose balance, so Garlaschelli kept his eyes open and Dillman was unable to knock him over.

What do you think about this?



  1. When does this end? Many parents are caught up with many of these especially information about taekwondo and future Dans. Everyone needs education.

  2. Technically he’s not a fake grandmaster. Legitimate as many others if not actually more accomplished…. Now , his special technique s were pure BS

  3. George Dillman no passado representante regional de USKA United States Karate Association . Conhece JU JUTSU , KARATE , KOBUDO . Mas suas tecnicas de Dim Mak sao teatrais nao reais e um grande comerciante e showman . Deveria ser artista de cinema ou de teatro sua tecnica de pontos de pressao nao funciona , apenas teatro .

  4. You must realize it's real lies!

  5. I know Dillman I'm sure he love this. First, of course he is a Grand Master. He was one of the top national tournament winners. He has done much in Martial Arts good or bod. His top National Instructors wanted him promoted. And he outlived many of his teachers.His info on kata is good. If you don't like the Chi stuff.Ignore it. But most of all he loves publicity. So keep it up I can almost hear him laughing.

  6. If you study martial arts and think you can can put someone down without contact or a weapon... You should really find something better to do.... martial arts isn't for you. Martial arts in reality are purpose designed to protect yourself and hurt someone else. Taken from Roman for 'arts of Mars ' Roman god of war. Martial arts are technically systems for fighting designed by professional warriors/soldiers for combat ..real combat. So if what 6are doing is flashy it's for health and happiness. If it's difficult and requires lots of repetitious practice as well as hard sparring your probably in the right place... probably. Understand however no one can teach aggression... without true aggression. You can't effectively use the arts. This is why not everyone is cut out to be a soldier. YOU have to be okay with hurting someone should it be necessary.as in to prevent harm to yourself or others.

  7. I know everyone is going to say its a way of life blah blah...no war conflict were ways of life incorporating training into daily life just makes sense. So it became a way of life... increasing effectiveness grossly. Fact is the physical movements are designed to break the human body. No reason to sugar coat it. The emotional stuff is legit too a calm clear mind is more effective...it allows you to freely access your martial knowledge

  8. All excellent responses all made sense….
