    What to do when being harass in voting line.

    As I know you must make it political, the GOP is not funding antifa or blm, who riot, burn, loot, yank people out of their cars and nearly beat them to death everywhere they go. That would be the DNC. Being an independent, I realized a long time ago that at least 70% of all polititions are...

    Sure, get in on it.

    Uniform stance vs. Mirror stance

    It's called "strong side forward". If you're referring to Lee. He wrote about it extensively. I started training that way 1971. We've been talking about it for several posts. No offense intended.;)

    Uniform stance vs. Mirror stance

    According to wikipeda Wallace had to kick with his left leg due to a judo match injury of his right knee. He did a good job, they called him "superfoot" for a good reason. I watched maybe 3-4 of his televised matches...way back then. His apponents tended to end up on the canvas from that...

    Really bummed about my recent test

    I don't know. We only had white sash, which took a few months to get. Black sash, that took years, and Red sash that you had to go to Hong Kong to test for. It's a question of motivation vs keeping students I think, but I'm guessing.

    Uniform stance vs. Mirror stance

    I tried to be completely ambidextrous, but that left side....side kick? Nope, I couldn't get there. I was practicing throwing a baseball and football with my left and I improved a lot, but they call it strong side for a reason.

    Uniform stance vs. Mirror stance

    I think I agree with some of your point, but my mind is not operating in this time (blank). I react more as a mirror to their movement (like a magnet), my mind is in a neutral state. If my mind was active I wouldn't be able to move at the same time as my opponent. But I trained myself stay...

    Uniform stance vs. Mirror stance

    I use strong side forward period. As I block and attack I mirror their movement...just inside of it. As I move I can slide to either side (briefly) depending on what they do, but switch back to strong side.

    What's your biggest advantage?

    Certainly the best way.

    Are competitive Sport Martial Artists superior?

    I think you miss my point...go downtown or into the wrong neighborhood, and get into it with 2-3 bangers. If you get tied up with one of them for 1 second or so, likely you'll get stuck in the back. High movement is critical. They actually practice and formulate this as a team. It's how they...

    What's your biggest advantage?

    Yes true. If they start moving in, I start sliding into a stance... based on their distance. That usually stops them cold long before a full stance. Either way, I'll be in grounded structure when my punch lands.

    Are competitive Sport Martial Artists superior?

    I didn't say I haven't fought on the ground, I said I'd prefer not to. Have any of you guys had a fight on a cement sidewalk, in the roadway or parking lot? Rolling around on the pavement is not preferred by by anybody. Is it? And if you are facing 2-3 guys with weapons it's really a bad...

    What's your biggest advantage?

    With that career, that would have to be a skill...I'd think.

    Are competitive Sport Martial Artists superior?

    ....don't know what that means, but I was trained to be highly destructive from the beginning. I've tried not to be, but you get that way fast when somebody's trying to put a butcher knife in you....or pulls a pistol out of their belt. Admittedly I've been fortunate. The 4 times I've had...

    Are competitive Sport Martial Artists superior?

    Oh like sending a crushing blow to the throat, first punch... breaking a knee on the way in... putting a full power elbow at the bottom of the ear to break their neck...more? Breaking an elbow with a kick... stomping a knee as they go down. Kicking under the shoulder to dislocate it. I weigh...

    What's your biggest advantage?

    Just curious about individual advantages. What's yours? I'll start off with one I've used a lot. I'm 140 lbs. and am generally fairly nonconfrontational. Sometimes even passive...up until a point. So people hugely underestimate me, my strength and speed. I can also go from a passive...

    Most of what I trained at, breaks all sporting rules.

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    Yeah, you've got a point, but there are lots of PHDs that think the rest of us are stupid. I've had conversations with a few. They generally don't like me too much...haha.

    Are competitive Sport Martial Artists superior?

    I don't know guys. This conversation seems to always go back to the ring. A sport has rules....lots of them. Combat has no rules. I can't see them as very relative. All those rules take away, easily half of what I'm good at. I know that these guys are tough and have skill, but it's not...

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    I agree that "flow state" is a good term, but looking at the rest of Mihaly's more western approach seemed owkward. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seemed as though he was bringing it down for the low IQ of us dumb westerners.

    I agree, I spent a lot of time training not to be taken down. I can, and have fought on the ground, but fighting on cement is not something I want to do.

    A theoretical match up. Who will win?

    Learn to walk on your hands...give you something to do. It does amazing things for posture and balance....and upper body strength.

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    I can see the explanation as being somewhat vague, but I see high potential as being one thing, all....from structure including mind, emotion, body and spirit. All lined up in unison. Every aspect.

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    I'll give an example of the result, of how I turned my destructive training into something more positive. I was in a campus setting. I'm 140 Lbs. Three guys hogging the side walk. All three at 180 to 220 Lbs., and in good shape. At one of the sidewalk intersections, I jumped around...

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    I find your input cautious and honest. That's a good thing. I appreciate it. I do sometimes use terms like "dark". I spent time there. It's not scientific, but describes emotional and mental states.

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    I'll add, it may seem different to you. I was led off in the wrong direction from family violence, and by an instructor that wanted to use and develop my destructive force for his own purposes. Not everybody gets the positive training that's correct. I had to fix that in myself. So I had to...

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    I'm not sure why you're seeing it that way... maybe because you've seen it discussed that way. It is nothing but natural potential.

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    I don't use weights. Mostly because you can't take them around with you. A long time ago I came to the conclusion I had to train everywhere I went...thru the whole day. Can't take weights around with you. Even when I was homeless, I still trained all the time. I apply the training into...

    Qi/Chi masters: why, when we talk about real fight, QI is useless?

    I keep it simple. I define Qi as natural potential. In the details of how it works, it gets complex, but it's a natural process. In order for you to use a lot of your natural potential, things have to be structured and lined up correctly. If they aren't, you can't use much of your potential.
