OK, best technique by far from my less practical TMA days:
Xing Yi: keeping your butthole clenched while in your San Ti stance. This was always said with a straight face - ancient Chinese secret...
Just funny that, especially in IMA, when you have about 1,000 other infinitesimal details to keep in mind, your butthole is near the top of the list.
Ninjitsu twice haha, one class when I was a kid and one class as an adult, they literally taught on the first day of class how to catch a sword in motion with your hands. That's essentially when i called bullshido!
stuff like this, who walks around with katanas in a modern day sense anyway. That was of my fonder bullshido ma experiences.
When someone high kicks or knees, headbutt it back down faster than their leg is moving. The logic was that because your head was moving faster, the energy would transfer to the opposing leg, leaving you in tip-top shape and the opponent clutching his injured leg. You could also modify it to headbutt a punch, elbow, or to counter another headbutt.
That week, I quit Shaolin Kung Fu.
