    Some fun I had at the expense of kungfu

    When I was an undergrad college student I actually had studied a fair amount of kungfu. I had a friend who was a certified shaolin master, and a few other friends who all taught kungfu through university clubs. I was never intelligent enough to ever fully memorize a kata, but I remembered some of the more whacky poses and techniques from various sources.

    So tonight I was at the club where I practice international rules kickboxing. As a joke, I show the coach a few of the more ridiculous kungfu poses. I showed him the cross-legged female horse stance, that thing where you stand on one foot, lean over, and throw an extended punch, an uppercut that starts from a very low cross-legged crouch, and a while earlier I had emailed him a picture of William Cheung punching someone in the foot.

    Anyway, so during one of the rounds that I was sparring with the coach towards the end of the session, he suddenly busts out the thing where you stand on one foot, lean over, and throw and extended foot as a joke. We were, like, all winded from a full evening of sparring and we almost died laughing. He also pulled the William Cheung foot punch on me.

    His comment: "This stuff just dosen't work."

    My comment: "Unfortunately, that's sort of the story of kungfu..."



    Just to clarify, I think that properly-trained kungfu can be effective. I also have respect for classical kungfu as an art form. But in this case, the object of fun was really silly and unlikely poses.

    I say if you can't make fun of your own style, then you shouldn't be taken seriously either. Some things are just funny.

    Nice, dude.

    Cross legged female horse stance? That scares me. Maybe it is effective. I, for one, have owned horses all my life and never seen any mare, ever, cross any legs.

    Had an Arabian mare named "Nimba" who would cross her legs a la twisting horse stance (her breaststrap always bothered her and think she did this to take the pressure/itch off).

    I think Ronin just summarized the entire history of CMA! :icon_razz
    Kung fu is translated as "stand around and talk."

    Did you make the sound effects too? The sound effects are the most fun part, you can't forget them!

    I think the point of the raised leg is to catch an incoming front kick. I am not 100% sure. It is Longfist I believe.
