The Dim Mak

“It was the Dim Mak.
“The Dim Mak?”
“The Dim Mak. The Quivering Palm. The Death Touch. It's forbidden in the New Earth Army.”
“What does the Death Touch do?”
“It kills you, Bob—with one touch.”
“There's a story that Wong Wifu, the great Chinese martial artist...had a fight with a guy and beat him. Then the guy gave him this light tap. Wong looked at him and the guy just nodded. That was it. He had given him the death touch. Wong died.”
“Then and there?”
“No. About eighteen years later. That's the thing about the Dim Mak. You never know when it's gonna take effect.”
