I love the idea of body intelligence. I suspect total body integration plus mind added, is what most of trad martial training is about ..... problem is how to add the 'rugby' into the intelligent body part ......
Many in TMA seem to stop at the lovely thought that they are now completely integrated and intelligent .... but have no real means of connecting any of it to someone else.
Seems like adding it later is a problem, and I am personally of my teacher's mind in integrating context, chaos and randomness earlier.
Dude's moves seemed very smooth, and his knowledge of weak and strong angles was very good. Have to take exception with the blade parts though .... the sinawali looked nice at the beginning, infact it looked like he added an 'inside roll' very particular to my teacher at one point ... but then everything else had no meaning. Why did he do what he did, when he did it? OK, the first move after the initial attack, but then, why?
It's only if the opponent is reacting, that the next thing becomes the thing to do next ... if you get my drift, and that involves them fighting back, or defending themselves some other way that makes sense in the context.
I love TMA, I do Very Happy but how do you train this wonderful quality of body intelligence, and connect it to something 'real'? Can you? Should you .....?

Gotta stop now .... off to substitute teach a Tai Chi class for a friend ... at a Golds Gym no less. Very odd Shocked Laughing

with psychology - the focussed savagery the "core visualisation" gives you


as to connecting it to something "real" - again with psychology, its a mental endevaour, everything else will have you chasing your tail and drive you mad

Reg Wong taught me thisrecently and its a big step forward

we just cant dictate or know what will happen in the real world, constantly striving to make it realer and realer and da realest leads to stagnation and claustrophobia

how can I make it really realer ? the answer will be "psychology"
