Imitating form is a start, but do you listen to your body and understand what the form is telling you? In other words a form is useless if you don't give it practical meaning that you know with your body and with your mind. The problem with most silat and taiji people is that they think inner power means something spiritual or esoteric. It's not. It's understanding comes from sweating it out. The path to understanding how you move efficiently and express energy efficiently is through a physical route ... there is no mumbo jumbo ... that just keeps you blind. Cheers P.S. Sanskrit is just the language to access Indo-European wisdom ... the Chinese had their own wisdom long before Daruma ever made it to China ... to assume otherwise is just cultural arrogance.
