what isn't real.
resistance, relative timing and follow up.
I can show all kinds of cool tricks too, if I can get my opponent to pause indefinitely after every exagerated movement he makes.
There are clips of sparring at Shen Wu, and some of the movements that Tim executes do look quite a bit like this.
The difference there is that in the Shen Wu clips, his opponent is a trained, non-cooperative martial artist himself that continues to attack after his first attempt is thwarted. There's no pause or slow mo feature on the Shen Wu remote.
Agreed. However in one of the episodes of his, he has a full contact match with an escrima guy and he uses all of that in it. Ill see if I can find the link.
I'm sure that would interest the board!
it is at the end of this clip. I almost couldn't find it. I guess it has been taken off most of the net.
