Well, this might be the end of this blog, not many folks on MT these days and no one really pays much attention to it anymore anyway. And it might also be the end of me being able to do any martial arts, even taijiquan. Might even be the end of being able to take a nice long walk, ride a bike...

So before I get to my video experiment, two things need to be explained, first about how Shaolin Kempo Karate works, and about my recent history. Quick explanation of the style, at least at my main school (it varies from school to school): there are forms (which stay consistent), about 12-13...

in with the old..no wait... I mean new.... surprisingly... Since knee surgery, arthritis and other issues, one of those being getting old, I have to admit that an art, my favorite art, Xingyiquan, should very likely be left behind. My hips can't take it, my knees can't take it, and even...

Ive been thinking, which Taijiquan style is real or best? Is there a best, or are they just different? Is there a style that has a better grasp on what Taijiquan is really supposed to be? First, I want to say, this is all my opinion based on my training, and things I have read over the...

soon I had high hopes for Santi Shi as it applies to helping my right knee and it was initially rather successful. But then I started getting diminishing returns, and instead of being able to stand longer the duration began to get shorter. The left knee was doing great and going longer rather...

.maybe May 20 was my right knee surgery, and things were progressing as expected until Thursday, July 16, 2020. I was walking, slowly, without crutches and without a cane. I was on my way back to my office, after a lunch outside. I did not trip, there was no jolting of the knee and then all of...

Just a short update Saw the MD and I was told to stop PT. I was also given one exercise to work with, a single leg knee bend. To not go to where it hurts, only go as deep as I can without pain, and do as often as possible. I see him again in 2 weeks. I just want my knees to work See what...
