    You may forget your karma but be sure it will never forget you

    Check this out:

    Notice how around the 1 min mark the scientist says:
    I was reading some random Yi Quan stuff the other day and it said something like fa jin/fa li is superior/enhanced neuro-muscular control, whereas listening skill is superior/enhanced neuro-muscular sensitivity.

    Whereas in a more traditional framework ala TCM, the signal from the brain to the muscles and muscles to brain is interpreted as Qi (not including its many other manifestations), or bio electricity.

    Thus, it stands to reckon that activity which works on the incoming and outgoing signals from the brain to the nerves/muscles/skin enhances ones ability to control movement. Furthermore, an activity/exercise which solely isolates the signal and works on this aspect only, allows one to devote more of ones own brain/awareness/focus/intent to refining the transfer of these signals. In other words standing/chi gung/zhang zhuang is good for your IMA!

    I’m pretty sure most people have known this for a while, but as some are against the idea of such activity/exercises, I thought I would mention it just to wind em up a bit. :Angel:

    blah this is true scary martial skill - you can't touch this(and probably wouldn't want too), the power, fluidity, speed and timing are so breathtaking :D

    Hi there,

    came across an interesting article regards core training and CMA, see what you think

    also this nifty little clip of some bagua application, short and sweet!
    [ame=""]Bagua usage - YouTube[/ame]

    So what you all been up to.. :)

    Bodyblade thing looks like fun, would be interesting to give it a go, some things I would try are initiating the shaking from the center/back as opposed to arms/shoulders i.e. basically seeing how much whole body movement with as little resistance/tension in th arms/shoulders one can put in to it. Would also be interesting to try the shaking by opening and closing your joints in sequence or isolation. If anyone gets one let me know what its like, bit of a rip off though £120 + for the better version of a shaky stick.. :eek:

    Interesting technique in that bagua vid, it looks like the guy in white went for shoulder barge and committed all his force to it, but I dont really get how the guy in black managed to sweep his forward leg, I would have thought all his weight and root would be in it. I guess he unbalanced him at the same time as the sweep by pulling back on the rear shoulder i.e. leg up and shoulder down. I guess its all down to sensitivity/awareness at the end of the day.

    Here is another interesting throw that poped up at the end of your vid:
    [ame=""]Luo De Xiu Snake Throw - YouTube[/ame]

    It looks like LDX connects to the guy and immobilizes his forward leg/hip, then steps back, making the guy hop so as not to fall, as soon as the guy breaks his root for the hop, LDX throws him.

    Anyway, not much of a throws person myself, so maybe totally wrong with my appraisals.

    As to what I've been up to, I think that one is preatty obvious Mr. Handz! :D

    Ive been practicing an internal martial arts in australia call yang mian. they have a course called steel hand. Ive been training for about 4-5months now, 3-4days per week and 1 day with my trainer. I started out doing chi exercises and hitting a canvas bag filled with rice then switched to mung beans. my trainer has recently moved states and i was wondering if anyone knows what progression comes next?
    with iron palm you move on to gravel and than steel shots but you use dit da jow to heal your injury's , i was told in the yang mian system it is different to iron palm training because with this internal stlye you dont need dit da jow or liniments because the blood flow and oxygen heals your hands from the chi exercises (spinning arms) internally.
    I want to move on to the next level because i have crushed the mung beans. But i dont want to damage my hands, does anyone else do internal conditioning such as this stlye??

    Where about in Oz are you John? Maybe best to find another instructor, even if in another style.

    Some of the guys from the Kung fu forum might be able to offer some advice - I'd try there.
