With April Fool's Day fast approaching Al and Marcus discuss some of the many urban legends associated with martial arts. We discuss things like registering your hands as deadly weapons, the death touch, and the origin of the black belt.

We also speculate whether a monk in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First Edition could kill Tiamat with a quivering palm and if Venger's magic could protect him from firearms.
