    Go read your OP and remember that you started the thread off being an ass.
    Negative. What's being an ass about asking knowledgeable people for information based upon what I know and read? The only thing you and Muerteds contributed to was sarcasm. I'm not even angry. I'm just trying to get info. I explained myself, you got sarcastic, I asked you to give some of your personal insight, and you got sarcastic again. Wow, you helped me alot, thanks. Now who's an ass? FYI, it's not about who's an ass, it's about trying to get answers. My cognitive dissonance astounds because I am who I am. Cool huh? Maybe it has to do with not really taking this stuff too seriously? I really like all you guys and this was actually unexpected. Disappointing actually, I expected better.

    IIF, how could I take anything personally when I don't even know you guys? He was being sarcastic and not answering anything. My "surprise" isn't genuine. I was being sarcastic to a sarcastic response.

    You not liking answers and getting angry is you being an ass. Your OP contains asinine catch phrases like Flame on, the deadly and ridiculous techniques.

    When people answered you seriously, you became sarcastic and it was returned.

    Here it is, OP:

    Do people train their "TMA" techniques live? Yes, some do.

    Can they pull them off in sparring? Yes.

    Why does their sparring look like kickboxing then: It doesn't always. Sometimes those "TMA" techniques are techniques for kickboxing though. Sometimes you're just looking at friggin' kickboxing, or people playing according to kickboxing rules, so of course they'd kickbox. (See my response to Witty1 for specific examples of the techniques he said weren't in sparring appearing in sparring, and then offering up my other rulesets for taiji play that of course do not look anything like kickboxing.)

    You now have zero excuse to continue whining.

    There were quite a few good answers, and I definitely didn't get that distracted. Thanks. I really was curious and wanted some good answers. There is a lot to be digested on this site, and I posted to YMAS specifically. I have never seen a thread addressing what I stated in this post. I'm not doing the MMA vs TMA argument. I know a lot of people practice various MA and not just MMA. So I wanted some input and I guess I got it. Not necessarily what I was hoping for, but...oh well.

    Wrong. Those wonderful catch phrases were intended as reference in regards to what the general population here refer to them as. I'm really not angry. I appreciate all the serious answers I received, just not yours and a couple others. Not a problem, really.

    Let's try this again.

    I do a form with moves in that look like very large, exaggerated, very slow versions of actual applied techniques. It's to help me stretch and cool down after training. The big, deep stances are a way of gently strengthening and stretching my legs without needing any equipment (if I do find them right).

    I've never been taught to drop into a deep horse stance when sparring. I don't do the form to 'learn techniques', it's like a little yoga or lower body strength routine made out of exaggerated versions of techniques.

    Does this make sense so far?
    Quote Originally Posted by Muerteds

    Easy answer, right?
    Quote Originally Posted by Iif

    Yes, those "worthless" techniques have worked for me as well.
    Quote Originally Posted by Rivington

    Of course, both those sparring sessions clearly were limited to striking, and about 70% of what goes into a taiji form is designed to be used either as or along with standing grappling. (Taiji is all about cheap shots once you're tangled up with someone.) A better question might be, what moves or ideas from a form can be seen in this video:
    Remeber, you said wity1 asked the question correctly so, that means answers directed at him are for you as well.


    Now, your OP lumped all TMAs together with "ridiculous," "the deadly," "worthless" and "Flame on." Now, it is silly for you to expect intelligent debate when your OP is asinine and appears to be a joke. The funny thing is you still recieved answers with videos.

    I thing now I have all my questions answered now. There were a few distractions, but despite what some have said, there were some good answers. Coach Josh is always enlightening, and you gave me your insight as well. This was what I was looking for. Others experiences. I'm not saying my theory is right or wrong, it's just a theory. By hearing what others say, I can gain from that. Even the bad stuff. PSST: I didn't make it to my mid forties by getting offended on the internet. I really enjoy a debate now and then. I don't always win though, I have to work on that...damn my cognitive dissonance...(I like that by the way)
