    A civilized way to prevent a fight

    No. It doesn't look like there is enough control of the opponent. His arms are crossed but not locked up. His body is free to move into a better position. Like others have said, get control from the back.

    Are low stances useless?

    Yes, I've heard most of the Southern kung fu styles practiced on boats at some time or another. We do quite a bit of low stances in the forms and drill work. We utilize the strength it develops in rooting and attacking an opponents stance/legs. That being said, you have to fight on all...

    Double Wrists Control

    I would do two movements as close to simultaneous as possible: 1. Use his leg jam attempt as an opportunity to counter with a knee/leg lock or sweep. 2. Rotate both hands towards my centerline & smack his hands together.

    Difference between Hung Gar lineages?

    I've been with Yee's Hung-Ga for awhile. Of course there is a little bias but the differences between us is marginal. I would place more importance on your impression of the instructor(s) than lineage line.

    Seminars--Best/worst experiences

    The best seminars are the ones given by my SiGung Frank Yee (Yee Chi Wai). He has amazing martial skill and truly cares that you 'get' what he is teaching. The worst was a BaGua seminar I attended with a strained knee - it was torturous.

    Chinese martial arts concepts

    From my experience, most CMA's would disagree with this claim. 1- My 'insert style' is better than yours. 2- Same universal strategery found in all martial arts. ;-) 3- Move from dan tien & keep body alignment. 4- Each style has different footwork principles. For example, Tai Chi does not...

    The Army or the UFC

    Joab, I didn't read all the posts and coming into this late. Here's my two cents. This is an unfortunate stereotype of the Army. Infantry units also get assigned peace keeping missions. It's not always about pulling the trigger and shooting the enemy. Your friend will have a difficult...

    5 style kung fu

    The dragon, snake, tiger, leopard & crane are used to compliment one another. I don't remember there ever being a rock-papers-scissor type discussion about animal vs. animal. I understand what you are getting though. Hsing-i does have cycles of creation and destruction for it's 5 element...

    What do you think is the most ruthless?

    Do these experts have any real working knowledge about the gentle systems they critique? If not, I would go find out for myself.

    The founder of your Art, or a current big name?

    This would be an amazing experience to find out first hand what skills have been lost or what improvements have been made over the centuries. I'd go right down the line of Hung-Ga lineage masters.

    What do you think is the most ruthless?

    As others have stated, all martial arts have the capacity for violence or mercy. It's the intent of the practitioner that determines the outcome.
