Great collection of Bat-fu ! (that's probably what I should have called this thread).
Just as long as he doesn't use the five-point-palm-exploding-heart-technique (or Drunken kung fu, ugh !)
Personally, I agree that Batman would have some skills with pressure points, but in keeping with a more "realistic" (I didn't say real-life, I just said realistic), wouldn't want to see too much of that - but I'm biased about that stuff, because in real life it's damn hard to pull off, and
about 20% of the population are immune to nerve strikes anyway. I've seen top instructors come across someone like that who won't react
no matter how much they prod or poke specific spots ( guess some people
are just wired differently).
However, seeing Bats use painful joint-locks, carotid-artery chokes, and other precision strikes would be good - a more surgical use of pain,
certainly a bit more finesse than Bale's Batman - who went from being
pretty skillful in the first film, to a mere slugger in the last film).
That's just my opinion though,
(that Dim Mak stuff, finger of death......not convinced ).
Anyway, great post, thanks for weighing in !
