    Ive been accused of abuse or something and administratively punished, for PMing a member if their account had been hacked and thinking they were playing a joke on me. I wish the mods had actually looked at the posts first before sanctions commenced. Jokes on me after all. Site is un-usable...

    Someone decided to slow down the site for me by a factor of 100. It's impossible to post now. Not sure why, but I know what now.

    What's the difference between Taiji and wrestling, or boxing?

    This is also really funny and untrue. Youve watched too much Rocky.

    What's the difference between Taiji and wrestling, or boxing?

    Funny, for me boxing was just as easy to find as martial TCC. I guess your mileage varies, eh Gerry? As far as elements not being the art, that doesn't apply to Tai Chi Chuan at all. That's all TCC ever had.

    It's amazing we have vaccines for this at all, isn't it, but not for HIV. If you catch HPV, at least you can now file claims with GEICO, whether you got that vaccine or not. Watched David Spade's new comedy special last night, he nailed it. Three vaccines available from three different vendors...

    Share your greatest song or lyric???

    This song was, I believe, my first exposure to Japanese, after Space Battleship Yamato. "I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M. So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised I'm just a man who needed someone, and...

    True story, one of my sifus has been convinced by supposed doctor friends of his that flu kills more people than COVID. This particular dude taught me 12 different CMAs and a couple SE Asian ones. I don't have the heart to tell him he's wrong. We don't always see eye to eye on external...

    Wow, I got that reference. Pun intended. Now my mind is stuck in the 2000's, which by today's standards seems like a golden age.

    What's the difference between Taiji and wrestling, or boxing?

    There are elements in TCC that go back to the I Ching. That's survival. And from there roll up another 1500 years into the modern family forms. I found it in easy to find a very skilled martially trained Yang and Chen stylist. The talk about TCC dying is really silly. It's always there...

    Also, being a harbinger of Doom is not very Dao. Just putting that out there on this fine Saturday. Don't make the ancestors roll over in their graves more than they're used to.

    What's the difference between Taiji and wrestling, or boxing?

    The same thing applies to any art. I can cook, so can Bobby Flay. Tai Chi Chuan is not anything new, that's part of the mystery. Like a lot of CMA it contains ancient material, underneath a lot of modern thought. The modern families that have kept it alive didn't invent it. That's why you...

    What's the difference between Taiji and wrestling, or boxing?

    It's funny because Tai Chi Chuan's development predates the 12th century.

    It's funny Xue brought up Zhang Sanfeng (I sure never would). Why is nobody else laughing.

    What's the difference between Taiji and wrestling, or boxing?

    Just checked TCC is still breathing, Chen admonishments notwithstanding.

    What's the difference between Taiji and wrestling, or boxing?

    It's like drama, and not drama. This is some Stranger Things level stuff.
