Chocolate (Thai movie)

Not the one with Johnny Depp.

This one is about an autistic girl who teaches herself muay thai by observing people who train in it. Her hyperfocus has some kind of mirror neuron effect that lets her embed it into her own nervous system. It's like "I know kung fu", but not a computer program.

She also has awesome reflexes.

A clip from early in the movie:

 
Wow, excuse me, but what is all that, attacking a female?!!! But yes, superb to watch.

Reminds me of the time, I was persuaded to go on a plateform and do a presentation. I had never done this and yet, I was asked if I was a savvy, because apparently it looked as though I had been giving presentations for years.

Nope; it is called: observation and that is how I learn.
