    This thread is only getting better.

    Hey, is it true that Tai Chi includes a lot of arm locks?

    And is it true that Yoga strenghtens the muscles of the vagina to nut cracking levels?
    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.


    - W.B. Yeats

    Now, That is a topic for much discussion.

    There's this great Yoga place on my way home from work. Its in the corner of a building on the ground floor, with windows all along both walls. Then inside the walls are all mirrored. No self-concious people in there. Despite t3h f4tn3ss.

    WCL:

    To 1: Not sure there are more then other arts... there are arm locks/breaks in the form I know (yang 24 and half combined 48), but seems to be as common in other forms

    To 2. Yes.

    Having locks in the form is different to having locks.

    Showed up a bit, late, most has been said already, but TCC is very big on interpretation, its all in how you apply what it teaches. If you don't know how to apply, it just for health, start getting into application and its a whole new terrifying rabbit hole.
    WCL - #1 "Yes, many," and #2 "yes, god bless yoga."

    I absolutely disagree.

    I don't think people are interpreting, I think they are guessing to fill in blanks, like with my having locks in the form is not the same as having locks comment.

    Its not about pulling things from the form and putting something martial against them, its about having a full, complete martial art with effective theory, techniques, training methods and attitude as well as a line of people who have always trained in that manner.

    Once "knew" (Biblical sense of the word) a Stripper ... er ... Exotic Dancer ... who studied TCC and could pick a quarter up off a table top with her box. Does that count?

    Got that here in Xi'an. My teacher has a rep around town for being particularly good at qin na. I would put it the opposite of the way you phrased it. He has endless joint locks but none in the form. Looking at that particular form as a collection of techniques is a real entry level way of trianing.

    Good for you, I wasn't talking about single techniques, I was talking about applicable principles. You can say I'm wrong if you like, since this method works well for me I don't think it matters either way. If you want to say "thats not the proper way to use P'eng" you go right ahead, if its stupid and it works, it ain't stupid.
