(sorry to keep posting this convo as it materializes but these things have a habbit of getting deleted on planet Phil.
Yes, you've got me. It's a deep, dark secret. I'm deliberately concealing the provenance of these super-obscure, totally new and different, bizarre methods that defy the laws of physics and will turn the martial arts world on its ears.
No, wait, I give. The secrets were given to me by Yetis in the Himalayan mountains. Or was that Sufis? Yetis are those Bigfoot things, aren't they?
If you had even ten percent of the martial knowledge you and the folks at the Children's Network think you have, you'd realize there's nothing particularly mystifying or complicated about palm stick principles. You'd also understand their utility.
Oh, damn it. There I go, giving it all away. The Yetis will be very angry with me.
