So it's something they never practice with people outside their own lineage ?
As I have said before there is reality and there is practice. Reality happens the same as the natural excrement that emerges from your rear end happens.
Who are these people who poke their noses in and alter posts??
So they don't get to practice their 'San Sau' on anybody outside their lineage. Do you feel this is better or worse way of preparing them for when the 'stuff' happens than giving them the opportunity to adapt to different methods of fighting ?
hi cullion, I'd like to introduce myself to the action online at this particular website.
If you meet somebody worth learning anything from, they won't be sending knockout
punches your way on the first encounter
tell richard reality doesn't need a reference point
Cross purposes, you don't understand. Competition is not real, and friendly fighting is not real. None of us need to fight, not even you! You want to play at reality and believe you are great if you "win", so go ahead. It is just another facett of something else, not TCC.
Reality is in the moment.
reality is everywhere all the time, your lucky if you get to see a moment of
do you know the number one rule of reality?
you won't be able to pretend, after you hear
don't you guys do martial art?
you can get destroyed playing at martial art
So you don't believe in giving them a chance to do something closer to 'real' than demonstrating techniques on each other in a cooperative way, and you never let them try same on people who are trained in different methods ?
I don't think that's the most helpful way of preparing people for 'real'.
It depends whether or not you need to learn what happens when somebody tries to knock you out.
Bonjopi - hi, pleased to meet you. You can edit and add to posts - please don't spam the thread with one liners
Still playing "I've got a secret" eh Richard?
Hope you had a nice holiday btw
I'll look elsewhere
hi Taiji Butterfly: attempting to find out how much pushing is allowed before I start
There are no secrets, there is only what you are capable of understanding. Without the required changes created by years of correct training, you are wasting your time and more appropriately wasting the time of the teacher and other students in the class. It is like a primary school child crying because he is refused the opportunity to enter university.
There is also the other very large consideration, and that is what I am *allowed* to show and teach, and to whom, by my teacher. And Cullion if you wish to enter the process first you have to knock on the door before you are let in.
the real guys can throw people without hurting them
similar to dropping a dozen eggs without breaking any
Have you ever asked yourself the question: What should the real skill look like?
A real master is the least violent person you will meet. Because the purpose of
martial art at the start was the ability to overcome violence, inside and out
The real masters are so good at being non-violent, that any violence you throw at them will be sent back in your direction, with very little effort on their part, they are protected, they have already done the work
And Richard, there are many secrets in martial arts, with good reason
The ability to keep a secret is very important with most of the people
I have met
Once you show people the real skill , they get to do whatever
they want with the information
and there are some rather nasty people out there
most of the people in martial arts don't get exposed to the real
information simply because they aren't ready for that information
everyone is searching and everybody in martial arts should encourage
the search. People talk about punching and kicking as a way of expressing
something more fundamental.
One of the most powerful techniques you can use on people is "encouragement", ever been knocked out by a smile?
Someone trying to beat you is more real than someone trying to let you beat them.
Competition is not real and indeed friendly fighting is not real. Friendly fighting is more real than co-operative exersize.
