You're not going to learn any of that in ANY martial art. Experience will teach you that though. Eye gouge? Throat shot(careful, that one can be fatal)? Pulling the hair at the back of the neck will make a person move. Nothing taught there in any dojo.

I'm referring to the concept of Mushin or "no mind" it's not magic, people do this all the time, eg.. Driving your car and not remembering the details of the journey, someone throws something at you and you surprise yourself by catching it with lightning reflexes. Athletes and martial artist do it naturally even if they aren't aware of it. In fact I doubt that many martial artists/boxers/athletes don't do it, conscious thought is too slow for real fights or some sports that involve fast reaction timing.
Aikido... Fighting Art
Muay Thai... Fighting Art
Jujitsu... Fighting Art
Tae Kwon Do... Martial Art/Sport
Fighting Arts teach techniques that are utilized to do serious harm where as Martial Arts don't.

I personally have no idea or any experience about martial arts, but those shaolin monks sure look pretty darn strong and fast.
