    but i think some of these pics might not be of actually fighting martial arts. maybe wushu or something?
    Perhaps the guy in the picture doesn't think that move is for fighting either. Perhaps he does that form as an exercise routine that requires no equipment but involves bodyweight strength exercises (looks like he's doing a pistol in that pic) and isometric postures and stretches chained together in a varied sequence that's less boring to do than repetitive isolation exercises.

    I don't know if that's why the guy in the pic does it, as I don't know anything about him, but if that's why he was doing it, would it be a waste of time then ?

    I find it kind of funny that if you ever type in a style of kung fu in google, what comes up 99% of the time are these "body weight exercises". It really does make it seem like the exercises are the style. If you look up boxing or muay thai, pushups and squats aren't the first images to pop up.

    Sure if they presented it as a body weight routine then no problem there BUT they are presented with some ludicrous application that boogles logic.

    I disagree, it can also imply that they teach you how to imitate a fight, which is precisely what they teach you. A good fight choreography IS an art, even if it is unrealistic.

    The wushu stances are not inherently silly, they are like yoga postures. The silliness comes from the interpretation of their functionality.

    perhaps to you and a few others who've been around the martial arts scene, but pretty much everyone not in the know assumes that wushu artists actually do applicable fighting techniques. I mean, how many people walk into a martial arts studio because they'd like to pick up some fighting skills as apposed to the people that go because they'd like to learn to mimick a fight? Would fight choreography schools be as popular if they put "WE DO NOT TEACH HOW TO FIGHT OR DEFEND YOURSELF" on the ad?

    See Asia's answer:-

    I don't know if that's the case with the guy in the pic. Not everybody who teaches things likes that presents them with ludicrious applications.

    But it seems, sadly, that at a lot of places, they are. Which is why you can find pictures of stuff like that more easily than you can find images of CMA sparring.

    But not everybody who does those things thinks they have an insane dragon ball Z application for them. I assume that's wasn't the case when you did your forms whilst studying the various CMAs you've done Asia ?

    Well, for this we need to reach for the classic: "Whizzo Chocolates", Monty Python Flying Circus, episode 6.

    Relevant excerpt:
    ===
    Milton: We use choicest juicy chunks of fresh Cornish ram's bladder, emptied, steamed, flavoured with sesame seeds whipped into a fondue and garnished with lark's vomit.

    Praline: Lark's vomit?

    Milton: Correct.

    Praline: Well it don't say nothing about that here.

    Milton: Oh yes it does, on the bottom of the box, after monosodium glutamate.

    Praline: (looking) Well I hardly think this is good enough. I think it would be more appropriate if the box bore a large red label warning lark's vomit.

    Milton: Our sales would plummet.
