    I have niether the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manor of which I provide it.

    it should be pointed out that beatdownrichie is gay.

    You would know that, now wouldn´t you?
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.

    LOL at how this thread completely derailed... that's what people get for starting threads about internal arts.

    Yeh, I think this thread never stood much of a chance to become serious concerning the replies. LOL

    I don't know a lot abut it, actually. What I do know is that traditional Xingyi uses a guard, San Ti, that is very centerline-protected and vulnerable to hooking, headbooting, and whatnot. Our system uses the I-chaun guard, which is roughly similar to a boxing guard, but with the weight ~ 70% on the back foot (cat stance) and no bouncing around on the toes.

    Yes, we tuck in the chin. :D

    Oh, and obviously even the worst pianist could defeat the best violin stylist in the world. But if you're really into duelling, I recommend the banjo!

    For sheer KO power, nothing beats a solid piano to the head :)

    hey I started out standing in place and breathing thru my stomache till I ripped ass too...get into the wrasslin and you'll find it lends you good balance and rootedness...and being deathly relaxed can't hurt much either.
