    "internal martial arts" is such a broad term...kinda hard to choose between all the choices...any other choices? or how about a combination of choices?

    I've got two more slots, so the first 2 people to add a (reasonable) choice get theirs in.

    I think that "Has some thing to offer in principles and fundamentals, but incomplete as presented" is a fairly viable one. It's what I was looking for anyway.

    "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face - for ever."
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    its great for your health, lowering blood pressure, lowering stress, learning to regulate breathing, its great for your lymphatic system! it adds years to your life, and life to your years!

    for fighting skills, i belive it will greatly improve skill and power, speed, focus and general knowledge in how your body works. the internal practice will build skill over time.

    How about: Good principles, incomplete application.
