In De Janerio, in blackest night,
Luta Livre flees the fight,
Behold Maeda's sacred tights;
Beware my power... Blue Lantern's light!

Well, I finally got around to reading this entire thread, and all I can say is that I'm very glad I did. Page after page of good, solid information. Good stuff.
Also, that Jack Dempsey book was amazing. Worth reading several times over.

One more Tim Quote until, Jack Gets back.

I would suggest looking into Judo for some practical self defense training (there will be plenty of sparring). The principles of Judo are virtually the same as those of Taijiquan.

It is in the JMA forum. I reported the post so it can become an article.

Zen training sounds a lot like the Marine Corps boot camp training I had way back when.
Boot caught looking at DI
Do you like me private? Do you think I am pretty? You know that liking leads to loving and loving leads to fucking. Do you want to **** me private?
Private at this point is screwed and prepares to take his beating.
Several DI's are roaming the squad bay making sure the other privates have the appropriate thousand yard stare and are not eye balling the beating yet are still paying attention to the slightest utterance of any of the drill instructors.
Gung Ho! Gung Ho! Gung Ho!
