    Super slow Siu Nim Tau (siu lam tau)

    I will answer this: Yes. I have played it very slow. Sometimes in class, more often at seminars when there is more time spent training. It's a good workout for the horse but anything over 5 mins is probably best reserved for intermediate to advanced level practitioners. I find the main benefit...

    That is quite nice for you and it's good to hear! I'm glad there are some open minded people (who are also good at fighting), willing to share. I expect that if I keep working hard at all the things I do, I will make the right contacts when it is necessary. I have found some opportunities here...

    Sure thanks for the recommendation, I will consider it. I'm still trying to work out how to express my thoughts in digital media format. My background is in traditional self-defense focused Kung Fu, and I am a beginning performer. This means that I am interested in Performance, but not 'more'...

    After discussing this topic publically on this thread and privately, I have taken your recommendations seriously and enrolled in a Contemporary Wushu class 1x/week for 3 months. I joined a class and found the school to be accessible, the teacher and all the students were welcoming. It was a...

    You're totally right about that, and I wasn't trying to be 100% serious with all of that. Thanks for sharing. I'm trying to get used to it over text communications. As you can tell I like to communicate with some of my video footage, and I'm working out the best way to communicate and express my...

    Here is something a bit different but related. This is some more basic training that I do just to give a better picture of the overall training that I do. Any input is appreciated :shamefullyembarrased:

    Qigong: Points, Thoughts, Opinions

    Thanks for this, there is a lot of material here...I am running a fitness club where I package some basic standing QiGong as a low-impact fitness exercise. Attendees are catching on to the point that there is more to the system and asking questions. But I'm not at a level to answer all the...

    I'm a huge fan of Martial Club. Thanks for your recommendations. As stated, this was a training vlog, so I don't think we need to beat the nail on the head about what you are posting about. In my opinion, it's not necessary to comment on what's wrong, I can take a look and see as I am a martial...

    I take GREAT PRIDE in this! :smuggrin: (now I've done it...) More Power is always good!!! I won't get into it too much, but I'm sure some of you can think of how these moves can be used, in addition to the striking capabilities. (I can pull up a clip or do more work in my close-quarters alley...

    I would like to give a more detailed overview of the benefits of this training however this training is part of my Stunt Troupe which is private as such that type of discourse is typically reserved for members. Here are a few bulletpoints on the subject: -Flairs are for switching hands and...

    Line cook looking to break into MA. Need advice.

    I'm sure you have some level of fitness to be able to be on your feet prepping in a kitchen and perhaps lifting boxes of chicken etc. (I was in the industry for a long time, and hovering over a cutting board tightened my back). That said, the short answer to your question is yes, there are...

    lock possible?

    It depends what you are going for; if you are looking for more of an offensive control position on the opponent, then yes - a short stick or Maglite could definitely help, given the material and weight of the object which can help with not only locks but breaks as well. There is no substitution...

    Question on martial artists

    This is an interesting discussion, as I was wondering if someone would pick up on this when I posted it. In any case, it doesn't actually come down to a hard 'yes' or 'no' answer - because most people don't actually want to fight very often. Additionally, I simply don't have any other players to...

    That is why a train. Im open to DM if you would like to take this discussion there as to discuss my level. I dont feel that it would be appropriate or necessary to continue this discussion on the thread. Thank you!

    Thanks for your interest. This is just a bit of training for switching stances and flowing with different strikes and techniques. And I appreciate the feedback from everyone so far. P.s. I sped it up to be able to provide more techniques in the video.

    I am very much interested in performance yet it is not the only thing that I am interested in. This video is performance of martial arts techniques. Striking is involved. Lots of flairs in this video, yes. And I dont know what else to say but that Im interested in approaching the material...

    The experience that inspired this was simply a Cultural family festival, which I attended as a family outing. ;) I use a lot of flairs when practicing bo staff performance. The main inspirations behind this performance come from my experiences with 'Wing Chun' (Shaolin Based Kung Fu), QiGong...

    I understand and I wouldn't expect a traditional martial arts school such as yours to have to bend the rules and curriculum to newer students and visitors alike. It is nice to see such a welcoming attitude, and if I was in the Detroit area I would consider training Karate regularly with you...

    Does Wing Chun train to Fight?

    Sure, I agree this is a friendly martial arts forum. My response was to the Xu Xaiodong clips posted as I believe there is a lot of controversy for nothing (I.e. show business). I think a bit of sparring such as in the higher levels of Wing Chun drills is totally sufficient to train a person in...
