Well I ran into this video on youtube and its one of them masters doing their thing with the students and the not touching or the lightly touching type of thing, haha. It is a little different in the end an american man(with no understanding of leverage, haha) seemingly tries pretty hard to hip throw the guy. haha funny stuff.
BTW, tim, did you ever run into this type of thing durring your stay in the orient? Did you ever try to feel it?
That stuff is so difficult to watch. Sad.
pathetic, i feel sorry for that long-haired f=== who has wasted four years of his life
haha, yeah. i dont do well with it either.
I did run into this type of stuff, in every case, it was nonsense.
Tim, did these types usually charge money for their "teachings" as well? What do you think the main motivations behind people teaching this type of stuff is? Followers? Money?
Or perhaps they really believe their own b.s.?
Yes, most did charge money. I think their motivations included all you mentioned.
By the way tim. When you did see the masters you train with fight or spar, were they fighting in "traditional type" stances or did they adopt a more "boxer type" stance? Just interested.
Did they squat and play hoppity-switch-foot with their stances?
I hate the term "masters".
Teacher, instructor, coach...but "master"?
Well however you word it.... I think it would be interesting to hear about it. I remember a while back Tim mentioned that the sparring done in Huang Yi Hsiang's school adopted a boxing method. I just think it would be interesting to know because there is a common believe in traditionalists that all of the "masters" were fighting in these deep low stances with arms extended in different postures in front of them and I wonder how true that is. Since Tim actually did train with a few of them, it would be interesting if he were to shed some light on the subject.
The American exemplified the perfect hard martial art, boxing, Tae Kwon Do over the shoulder throw.
I just can't believe how powerful that qigong master is.
I can hardly belive that a similar techniique hurt the Americans back in the past.
I can see where the American has time and money well spent.
I just can't wait tell he is taught the next level so he can come to the USA and have seminars.
