    Favorite childhood toy

    Related to the best Christmas present thread is this. What was your favorite toy as a child? It's probably the one you played with the most though not necessarily. It may be one that you had for a very short time but remember fondly. Unlike the Christmas thread, this toy could have come from...

    Best Christmas gift ever

    With the holiday season here, I thought I'd open an appropriate thread. What is the best Christmas gift you ever received? Answers like "my children" don't count because we all know they're priceless. Otherwise, it can be any product, services, event, or gesture from any part of your life.

    Sil Lum Tiger Lady's photo gallery

    Hey, SLTL, I was going to respond to your posts about your recent addition to the photo gallery. I can't reply to it because it was in the FAQ section (and I guess this digresses anyway). I just wanted to say I liked your photos. Every tie I see a kung-fu practitioner I wish I had a chance...

    Last minute gift ideas?

    Ooookay, so there's someone (female) who is having a birthday this weekend. I want to express my affection for her but I'm not sure what to get. Doesn't sound too hard but here are my problems: The birthday is this Sunday so there's really no time to ponder, ship items, etc. I most likely...

    Cancer's roadmap to metastasis revealed.

    From the Yahoo web link here: I hope this leads to new discoveries and a lot of saved lives. Too bad we weren't further along with this before my mom died from cancer. Hopefully many other people will see their loved ones live.

    What's under your Favorites?

    Tgace had just posted a link to a great web site that I had saved under my Favorites/Bookmarks toolbar long ago. I never posted anything about it here because it wasn't martial arts related. But, then again, that's what The Urusai Bar & Grill is for, huh? It made me wonder, "What links do...

    Defining a martial arts style/system.

    I'd be surprised if this hasn't been brought up before but I'm too lazy to research thousands of posts. What is it that truly defines one martial arts style or system from another? At first thought, a few characteristics come to mind: Country of Origin: It is generally easy to trace an art...

    The Person Below Me...

    Ever in the pursuit of bringing the world closer together, I'm going to start a little game. It's an easy one. The person in the post immediately before you will ask a question. You answer that question in your posts and then ask your own for the person to follow you. I suggest quoting the...

    When you can snatch the pebble from my hand...

    Are there any schools in the USA (of any system) where the students completely reside during their training? Y'know, like the Shaolin temples are in China and that sort of thing? I've often thought I could give up my worldly ways and devote myself entirely to my training as do Shaolin monks...

    Kata analogies

    I was posting a response under the Ko Sutemi forum earlier concerning the execution of katas. After thinking on it for a minute I made an analogy of kata execution to driving. Like driving, a kata is not performed mechanically. One drives best when alert but relaxed. The mechanics of...
