Touch the pulse (like the jugular)?! You're right, though; it takes a great deal of restraint for me to sit through a martial arts film (or most other HK productions -- you'd think everyone in the Song Dynasty had the ability to fly) without shrieking maniacally into the horizon, even those of Jet Li who is supposedly the sine qua non of the genre.
