I hoover up all sorts of information from anyone who is willing to share and hope that I do the same with others. This kind of thing completely baffles me though because...I mean...well, what the fuck?!

Do they believe this so much that it affects them genuinely?
Do they have nothing better to do and want to have a laugh?

Eh?

Oh yeah ....I remember seeing this before,
"See, I push on the brick sh#t house, and ... I bounce right off it/him - amazing!!"
"Then he pushes on me and I throw him around like a puppy - even more amazing!!" .....

Yet another embarrassing Internal Arts clip - very sad.

Not that I don't believe you can't issue power out of different parts of the body .... it's just that these guys are spending too much time inside their little bubble of compliance. If they are not careful, they will be on the slippery slope to no touch KOs before they know it ....

this kind of stuff is great for health and flexability but i think if i was in a fight with one of these "traditional" type kung fu players i think they'd last a couple of mins. i'd love to spar with someone who has been doing the styles metnioned in that vid tho. but some one who has dedicated years to it and can "use" it. i dont think that these styles are relivant today. could you imagine the guy in the red shorts fighting a wrestler with half decent striking ability or a rounded street fighter or mma stylist? he'd have NO chance.

what you guys think?

i would like to appologize in advance for not being professional--you see, we're juggling two
kids and preparing for a great road trip across the u-s-a...and we're getting things prepped for
painting the entire inside of the house.

in short, i'm stressed, miss being able to contribute more...and then i see this and the chuckling
starts. i'm not jet li, i'm not even oxcart-li...i'm just an old fashioned halfwit who's regularly covered
in bruises because i believe it's about effort, pushing limits, sweat--and all that stuff all you guys
do already.

all that went through my mind on the last frames of the big guy bouncing back after pushing on
the little guy's backside was...well, a fart. one handed typing--me, as my daughter is in my left hand.
i kept expecting the chris farley looking guy to flip over the railing and start cursing, "ahhhhh, mother
of god..make the pain stop...wolverines are eating my leg--or is it deadly habenaro chi ripping my
quads to shreds!!!"

i hope the only ones they ever have to fight are each other...i can picture the conditions,
"george, i'm leaving my house at 7:40 pm tonight...DON'T mug me by my car in the parking lot
using a rear neck choke--wink wink, nudge nudge...i get to be the mugger tomorrow, n'kay?"
lol!

Haha good replies there, like that. I just find it completely bizarre to be honest and it must be some kind of delusion going on somewhere along the line but to what end? Some of the other vid clips from this guy about standing practice (Zhan Zhuang) are not *that* bad when talking about body alignment and the stuff that I've heard, been taught and practiced in Bagua but this stuff is just plain silly. When I originally clicked the link it was because I was interested (am interested) in the concept of whichever part of my body makes contact with my opponent is a strike, in my mind and my intent I want in that instant to do damage - hence 'Any point of the body becomes a strike' was of interest. Hmmm. Something went wrong in the translation of that idea or....these guys are actually superhuman!!! scratch

Thanks for your thoughts on this one..

I think like lot of people in martial arts they are probably well meaning guys stabbing ineffectually in the direction of a useful concept

you must have compliance, politeness and a degree of indulgence in a martial arts training environment, but too much and you get this fantasy based martial art where people play out the way they wish reality was rather than the way it is

the map isnt the territory and neither of those guys looks particulalrly healthy OR handy so I dont know what useful attributes their training has given them
