    We call it the tanden or dan tien. Same location. Some take it further than this set of basics and begin to speak of qi or chi breathing, but that is more than I intended here. And in that area, I have so much to learn, I cannot really speak of it.

    That was fun, I liked that.

    When I train in Long Fist I was taught to breath like Xue Sheng said to be in control of your breathing. I came from TSD/MDK,
    I think my breathing out was one of my tales. My teacher knew what I was going to do before I knew.

    While in Horse stance humming we would exhale and bring our stomach in and when we inhale we would push our stomach out.
    As my teacher spoke no English, I can only guess as to why we did that, maybe if we thought about the breathing we would forget the pain of the horse stance, Maybe it was good for our health, maybe it help us mediate, I really don't know.

    I still grunt to break things, it fells like I have more power. It may be an illusion I don't know.

    But will you
    tug on superman's cape
    spit into the wind
    pull the mask off that old lone ranger
    And then mess around with Jim

    The horse stance breathing thing we did it in every class, is that normal or was that something this teacher like to do.

    Well, back home they do call me Slim. Amongst other things, of course.

    But, man, I still hate getting my Cape tugged.
