    Silk is an extremely tough fabric.

    I've always wondered if it makes kung fu people easier to throw.

    When I was talking about smaller cats, I was referring to the difference between larger tigers and play as a comparison of size. Ive also heard some schools refer to Leopard in Hung Gar as simply 'cat' so I suspect there may be mutliple reasonings for the idea of Tiger being hard power and leopard/cat not being so much raw power as it is speed. Of course Leopards are strong but then again Ive heard all kinds of wierd chinese animal ideas so Im used to hearing usual mixed bags (such as goshawk in xingyi being refered to as vulture or pheonix for various different reasons)

    but this guy isnt even a kitten in a burlap sack about to be drowned.
