    Will I get to have some skill?

    I asked a couple times about that one, but each time it was either ignored or missed. My guess is no, unfortunately.

    This might just be a result of my experiences beforehand. The beginning of the forms were slow, so I just unconsciously consider them a start. I thought so, but could only speak for the one place I tried. Didn't want to generalize it. And yeah meditation is a good word for it.

    The two styles that I've (briefly) done..in fu jow pai, each form had it's own 'start'. So while there wasn't any specific "each time you bow go into a horse stance and kiai", there was clearly a start to prepare for each form. In taichi, if you do the form directly there was no start. But...

    Will I get to have some skill?

    Given the timing of it, with the new updates, I'm betting that it's not. Mainly because I think people are getting reminded of the site from the email updates that started sending out again, bringing them back and looking through forums (if you look at the person that revived this one, he was...

    Forum Update April 2021

    Editing the 'quoted' post is something we've always been able to do. It just gets more differentiated if you keep the tags on. Websites nowadays like to hide them to make it look 'cleaner' when typing, but I prefer to leave them on so I know what is and isn't being tagged/quoted. If you click...

    A general psa since this is apparently affecting a ton of companies. If you're having issues with outlook today and not being able to write/see emails, just go to the web version. That's supposed to be working fine.

    I noticed that too. They recently updated the site so I'm guessing email subscription options went back to the default. Nice to see you again though! (This is kempodisciple, had a name change on here a couple years ago since I no longer practice kempo). Can't recall if the name change was before...

    Have you ever considered quitting your MA(s)?

    As for the original post/poll, I have my doubts about the responses. Can 47% of the responders really say that they have never considered quitting? Never woke up one morning before a workout (or after one) and thought "is this really worth the effort", or had joint or back pain and thought...

    Have you ever considered quitting your MA(s)?

    @sddoherty I think your comment got messed up somehow-I'm only seeing what you quotes, not the reply, and I'm not able to quote your post itself.

    SKK over NCK?

    Keep in mind, this is dojo-specific, not style specific. Any school can create a program like that for free labor, regardless of style. As for wasting your time-the first four years, did you accomplish your goals? Do you feel like you learned something, and before they went mcdojo-was there a...

    Curiosity test for leg workout.

    How long could he hold a horse stance before this week?

    Yesterday, had a client that I was trying to download our remote client/connect to my session. To do that, they go to remote.x(our company).com. Here's part of the convo that occurred: Me: "blah blah blah remote.x.com. Do you need x spelled out?" Her: "No, I got it... I can't find it on your...

    Looks like they're all back to me!

    It feels good to be back.

    I'll be two weeks out a week before my expected (new) wedding date. Not going to start that week due to the soreness you mentioned, then hawaii for two weeks, so should be back to training come mid-June. Can't wait!

    I'll suggest something else. Linux good, Windows meh, Mac dumpster.

    Forum Update April 2021

    A smaller issue; the top 10 posters of the month on the home page was changed to top 10 posters of all time. Which is pretty static and doesn't really give us any info about who's been active this month.

    Unless one of the other mods can beat me to it, I'll ask about that when i get off work today (about 7 more hours)

    I see it on the right side of the screen down a bit on desktop. Not seeing on mobile.

    Just realized-the 10 monthly top posters disappeared from the home page, and now it's top 10 all time posters.

    Probably one of the things I missed the most. We had soo many emojis, but like you said they probably weren't legit. Now we've got some again though! 🍻 No yoda though, looks like the normal 'emoji set' from sms.

    I might be wrong (or just not seeing where the announcement is), but I think that announcement was posted just to the staff members

    Pretty impressive that it's only changed thrice in 15 years, relative to other web sites.

    They updated the website last night/this morning. Might be a few more changes that they roll out, but this is probably the new layout for the foreseeable future.

    Do you use the figure eight pattern with your fists?

    In kali: yes. In Kempo: yes. In sambo: sort of. There are definitely grappling movements that go through a figure 8, though I don't know if I would classify them that way. More just looping around a body part. In kickboxing, I can't think of any off the top of my head.

    I don't know if I'll ever escape SKK. Found out one of my new coworkers has also trained it since he was a kid, and now teaches at a school with his brother. Going to meet up at some point to train/discuss ideas, and I can feel myself getting suckered back in to it.

    Started my new job about 2 months ago. Got moved after training to working from home, and I made it clear when I did that, that the only thing on my phone is teams. So before 9AM, someone would have to reach out to me there to contact me. Meaning that if there are tickets in the queue, or I get...

    Rokas Responds on Wing Chun Challenge...

    I watched the video wednesday so it's entirely possible I forgot something...but where did he claim to have experience with every style? I thought he was pretty upfront that he didn't have experience with kung fu, and his biases got challenged by the responses.
