    The real application of "rebounding" is to slap your own body so you have a good body-hitting sound when you pretend to hit someone, pro-wrestling style, because the whole world's a stage.

    Never really bought into any of the myths. Probably because my dad explained how the stuff in the movies and in pro-wrestling was faked. That it takes lots and lots of hard work to be good at something.

    Are you suggesting that martial art movie actors and pro wrestlers do not put in a lot of hard work?

    Did you not read what I said? My dad explained to me how all that stuff was achieved. That's also how I know that it takes lots of hard work to be good at something. But the myths of superhuman speed, throwing fireballs, casting spells, etc...All that was movie magic. My step-dad on the other hand...He actually believed all that was real. When he found out that the father of one of my friends was teaching us judo after school, Not only was I grounded, but he moved us across town to get away from them. He also made me change schools. According to the church we went to, Asian Martial Arts were gateways into Satanism. There are still televangelists that STILL say that. My step-dad even tried to arrange for an exorcism.

    Yes, your post can be read as you saying they do not work hard.

    From the Evangelical point of view, all worldly things are gateways into Satanism. Cheeseburgers, only half as much as, say, Lion Dancing.

    What better way to confront the devil within oneself? Kung fu...and cheeseburgers.

    I thought 6 months of training in China with a shaolin monk would be equivalent to 10 years of training here.

    I thought striking with my fingertips touching (like a cranes beak) was more effective than a fist because I could precisely hit vital points of the body.

    I used to think only Asians could really get good a martial arts and I would never be as good.

    I used to think if I practice a form 1,000 times I would be able to use it if attacked.

    Irimi nage would work on someone that isn't wearing magic pants.
