Is This What's happening In "No Touch Knockouts"?
"Look into my eyes"
Back to the controversial subject of "No touch knockouts", My original post is linked HERE. As I describe in that post, I have personally seen the "no touch knockout" work in some interesting ways, and I have seen it fail miserably. Nearly everyone has seen the videos of the technique failing against skeptics or hardened athletes.
There is however something going on, and I believe it is Hypnosis. Look at this example of Hypnosis used in a robbery:
Now, every time I have witnessed a "no touch knockout", there has been intense eye contact between the instructor and the subject. Here is the background of the above video:
'Look into my eyes': Supermarket robber who hypnotises checkout girls to get the cash is hunted by Italian police
Last updated at 11:19am on 21st March 2008
Italian police have issued video footage of a man who has been hypnotizing supermarket checkout staff and getting them to hand over the cash.
In every case, according to reports, the last thing staff remember is a man leaning over and saying 'Look into my eyes' before suddenly finding the till is empty. In the latest incident captured on video footage the man walked into a bank in Ancona in northern Italy.
He waited until he got to a female bank clerk and, according to the video footage, appears to hypnotise her into handing over more than £600.
He then calmly walked out.
The cashier who was shown the video footage reportedly has no memory of the incident. She only realised what had happened when she saw the money missing.
Checks of CCTV cameras in the bank showed her being hypnotised by the man.
Italian police are now looking for the suspect - who bears an uncanny resemblance to Saddam Hussein - who they believe is either of Indian or North African.
(D.R.)-- So there are legendary stories of warriors in combat, when one catches the other's gaze, causing him to falter and loose the battle. In a sense, capturing the opponent's "spirit". We are even tought in Karate sparring to avoid falling for eye fakes which throw your rythym off or confuse you. Even a loud Ki-ai can have an impact psychologically. I continue to believe that there is SOMETHING going on here. Take a look at my previous post ,and also HERE for more ideas...
