Dear Glenn

It was good to talk to you this morning. As I mentioned on the phone I
am working on a series for the History Channel called 'Superhuman' which
will feature people around the world who have extraordinary abilities.
One contributor we have is a Shaolin Monk based in New York who is a
kung fu master; he can move very quickly executing a series of punches
and kicks in a very short period of time. Whilst looking into ways we
might measure his skills I came across the ASMI website and wondered if
your equipment or something similar could accurately tell us how fast he
moves and how much power he exerts.

Any help you can give me on this matter is greatly appreciated.

All the best
