What? You mean like Tai Chi or something like that? Like DCS said: vids would be nice. If not possible then meh, and I'll try to work it out, but they'd help alot. What it sounds like is you do breathing excersizes that are like alot of deep gut-breathing found in some arts for meditational purposes (of Japanese lineage) but that you include hand motions with them that are "Hidden" wrist escapes.Quote:

The problem I see with that is that yeah, the techniques are there, just like there's a lot in Hakko Ryu but we never tried them against resisting opponents and from what you seem to be saying is you guys barely know that they are there at all. I've heard Hapkido has Randori do you end up using them in that?
