    JKD Question

    According to Dan Inasanto many of these styles did not provide techniques. Instead they where influential because of a training method, philosophy, conditioning method, or what not to do. JKD can be described as a search for the common thread. Sent from my LGL455DL using Tapatalk

    Why do Japanese arts use the Japanese language?

    Besides being a martial art Capoeira is considered a cultural art as well. While training Capoeira you will be exposed to other related Brazilian culture. Not to mention at this point you are expected to learn to speak some Portuguese. After all the songs are in Portuguese. Sent from my moto...

    Baguazhang Fighting Techniques?

    Heeey I was going to say that! Also Bagua practioners are known to carry knives. Having trained in BGZ for most of my 35+ years in the arts I've had only one occasion to use it outside of sparing. It serves me very well. Now I just do it for helth and spar with it every once in a while. Sent...

    When the professor married with his student

    It is not a kata it is all free form. This is the wedding roda. I'm not sure when the tradition started in capoeira. Sent from my Z797C using Tapatalk

    Hung Gar Issue

    The gung gee fuk foo ( taming the tiger) is the fundimental form of hung gar. Tiger crane and iron wire are the other core sets of the system. Look for those forms. Sent from my Z797C using Tapatalk

    Kuk sool hapkido

    After 35+ years of TCMA and capoeira I've decided I want to learn a new art. I remember thinking that kuk sool was always cool. It turns out there is a class for kook sool 5 minutes from my house. I've done some research. from what I can tell is that kuk sool hapkido is made up of practitioners...

    Types of JKD

    Actually the three individuals that were given the 3rd rank by Bruce were Taky Kimura, James Yim Lee and Dan Inasanto. Most everyone else was ranked by Dan Inasanto after 1973. Sent from my Z797C using Tapatalk

    KUNG FU

    It seems to me the young man has a plan. The form he is learning from video is from the teacher he intends to study with. The teacher will make the corrections that are needed. Honestly a Google search would provide the sequence of training material found in modern Shaolin. Sent from my Z797C...

    Taijiquan - How long should you practice everyday

    I agree with you guys. 10 years ago I gained custody of my 3 children. My training time was gone just POOF! I however would work on things in small segments. Like San ti shi before bed or go through the first two palm changes before they got up in the morning. Now they are all teens and more...

    About Xingyiquan - My thoughts - Blog Post

    I found this very interesting. It has been many years since I learned Xing Yi, but I seem to recall my sifu being a stickler for functionality. He experimented with boxing footwork and the monkey footwork of our mantis system. I haven't practiced Xing Yi a lot over the years but when I do I...

    Silat Merpati Putih - The Royal Inheritance of Mataram Kingdom

    I'm not prejudice against MP. I have known some of the practitioners for years. One even joined our Capoeira group. The skepticism comes from claims of being able to do certain things in with the chaos of a fight. In the US there is an old saying "seeing is believing." Also the motto of the...

    Silat Merpati Putih - The Royal Inheritance of Mataram Kingdom

    Oh that's not my thing. I believe people don't stay in a martial arts school simply because it works in a fight. There is way more to martial arts than that. I have visited them way back when they first started teaching. I say if people are happy with what they do its not my place to attempt to...

    Variations on JKD

    Yup you are correct. I do remember now that it was him saying that he didn't feel he learned as much about JKD as those in the LA school. Or something to that effect. Having been exposed to some people who trained with him. I would say he was just being modest. Sent from my Z797C using Tapatalk
