    Now that I've actually clicked on the link you ptovided, I understand what's going on in that picture. On that note, I'm leaving this thread while I still have some semblance of dignity left.:seppuku:


    Now lovely Lucifer, in hell so stark
    King, and lord of sin and pride
    With some mist his wits make dark.
    He send thee grace to be thy guide

    I went to a Silat/System seminar by Clear Silat.

    It was so full of bullshit.

    Like projecting your chi by grunting/shouting. It even had some touch knockouts.

    There was a system drill where you laid on the ground flat facing down, and by internal energy and thinking heavy you could not be turned over. I turned my partner everytime, I squated beside him as he laid long ways, grabe the far side of his gi, and fell back using my feet as a pivot for him.

    I was convinced to practice Bagua circle walking as a chi gung exercise. I spent a lot of time doing that- and arguing about who was doing it right/and or better. That was pretty bad. Luckily I didnít spend too long in that phase.

    There must be some gems on this forum, share!
    Sounds like something I read from out of a Castaneda novel. When I was going through my Chi Phase (an awful time, much like puberty) I was also told to do this kind of thing, and I would say, stare at my hands in meditation until I would see strange colors and such or until I my vision would become distorted in strange ways. What is with that? Cults/religions are the only other group that advocates this activity. I know there is a superficial quasi religious aspect to some eastern MAs but it still seems strange. Is it just a clever way to distract you from the fact that you arenít sparing?

    I once triangled a brown from under side control with no arms in.

    Some good responses! followed up by some crazy banter. Alot of chi related stuff I see as well, anyone actually had a good experience with "chi" training?. Did the blowing candles out thing but kinda saw it as a decent excercise at the time since our instructer (Ian Armstrong) was doing it with one finger. One finger to blow out a candle!? must be some skill somewhere in there... . Other than that pretty bullshidoesk.

    Well, I still meditate as a secular practice even though it has no longer has anything to do with the way I train MA. I find that once you remove all the religion, superstition, and chi theory there actually is a positive side to the exercise.
