    Spammer Invasion!

    Noticing interesting things. There seems to be a growing number of infomercialists and product announcers, and flat out spammer scumbags showing up lately. Of course, there are rules against them, but, as one would expect from such honorless curs, they seem to have chosen to ignore those...

    Yoga, a Martial Art?

    I've had a number of strange chats this past few weeks. A fellow I ran into at the library, insisted that Yoga was in fact an ancient martial art, much like TaiChi, practiced by ancient Indian Warriors. Personally, it sounds like so much ah, "poopoo", to me, and I couldn't find anything...

    In a recent discussion with a local Tai Chi instructor, the idea of QiGong training came up. I was informed that, one must not practice this, until one has spent many many years training in Tai Chi. This seems to disagree heavily with the growing number of books on the subject available at...

    Looking for a qualified TCM practitioner - What to look for / what to avoid?

    Title says it all. I'm curious about trying something different for my health care. I'm rapidly tiring of pills and side effects. So, what should I look for when looking at potential TCM doctors? Any thing specifically to avoid? Thank you.

    Questions on the various competitions

    The UFC is the "name", especially with their recent successful run on SPIKE. But there are other promotions out there, Pride and K1 (I believe) to name a few. What are the major differences between them? What major rules differences do they list, and do they actually enforce them...

    The "Reality" of UFC/NHB fighting, pressure testing sports moves, and the Real World.

    Decided to say hello.

    I've been lurking for a few weeks, decided I wanted to check out things more. I'm more the curious seeking type, and haven't really done any training, unless you count playing jedi and trampling my mums flower bed when I was a kid. Good site, and friendly people. Anyhoo, back to checking out...
