The feat of killing General Blue, would be far more impressive if it wasn't invalid for the purpose of this thread, since it was done using Ki to strengthen himself(and his tongue).
Likewise for Roshi's paralyzing Man Wolf(without the tongue).
Sorry late on this yeah it had nothing to do with Ki most feats pre-Z dont you gotta remember pre-Z they didnt have the vast sums of ki to wast on things and needed to preserve it this is shown best when Goku opts out of a kamehameha against Tenshinhan since 1 would have left him at a severe disadvantage and no one has the skill in controlling ki (Outside of Kami,PoPo and muten Roshi) to up there stats hell they didnt even know how to shot fodder ki blast and some didnt even know how to fly. (Till the Piccolo jr saga)
Any specific examples? While I do have all of the manga a few feet away from me, I can't really be arsed looking through all of them. If you can give specific examples(preferably which issue of the manga to look in), then I'd have no trouble looking them up.
Alright i will name a few
While not really a show of skill it is a show of tactics is Goku switching to a animalistic style to catch someone as skilled as Muten Roshi of guard more of a show of battle wits then overall skill.http://www.mangarush...on-ball/48/p-12
Back to the pressure point once again nothing to do with ki.http://www.mangaread...hapter-119.html
Muten Roshi also shows the ability to hypnotize people.http://www.mangaread...hapter-119.htmlhttp://www.mangaread...hapter-119.html
There are more i'll get later but im super lazy and don't feel like sifting through these scans and my manga at 2:30 am
Actually, there is no indication of his body being superior to that of humans.
Saiyans survive the higher G on their homeplanet, not by being physically superior, but by having the inborn ability to manipulate Ki(unlike most humans who have to work hard to learn it), and being born with higher Ki than humans.
While they do have the overall better ability to manipulate Ki and are born with higher Ki than humans. That doesnt mean anything baby Goku had a power level of 2 i think and he was crying and flailing around just fine because he was physicaly able to even a average human has a power level of 5 and they would be crushed so even if we assume baby Goku could manipulate his energy (All 2 of it) he still shouldnt be able to since even Goku with a power level of 350 (Weighted clothes on) who had the ability to manipulate ki (Shown by a believe his first real power up vs Piccolo jr) couldnt walk well and could barely jump a few hundred feet. Heck Raditz could not even raise or hide his power.
Note im not a supporter of either I still fell the same way I did back a few pages (WTF 9!?!?) that they can kill each other just as easily with nerve strikes and I give it a 5/10 to both just felt these statements were not correct and I will also say this is a lame test of skill since nearly all of even the most basic martial arts moves in the DBZ universe are built with the idea that martial artist are on average stronger than DC and Marvel ones even fodder moves like Zanzoken is really immposible
What Martial Art style has Goku mastered? When you can answer that question and provide evidence then you can say Goku is a Martial Artist on Batman's level.
Nearly every martial arts style in the DB universe due to him haveing probably his only hax ability to mimic any style he see's perfectly though this is pointless since a ton of his styles a made for supirior strength,speed and the usage of Ki
