The Tai Chi classics say:

Sink the chest and raise the back
Loosen the waist

The importance of mastering the basics

I practice Kenpo, and in Kenpo there are a lot of technical moves and long combination attacks. Some are very flashy, others bare-bones practical. All moves, however, require clear knowledge of the basics. M. Parker referred to these as the A,B,C's of Kenpo, and they absolutely cannot be underestimated in their importance.

The Big Boss, 40 Years Anniversary

Today is the big day, the day of The Big Boss! 40 years ago Bruce Lee presented one of his few greatest martial arts movies THE BIG BOSS aka FISTS OF FURY, the Bruce Lee debut martial arts movie. Already popular in Asia for his role on the television series THE GREEN HORNET, Lee exploded on the scene with this violent Lo Wei film and set the framework for his image as the world’s first and most popular martial arts movie star.

Kung Fu fighting with Vancouver's Helen Stortini from the - Roadshow stop:

The air in the narrow studio was sticky from sweat and laboured breathing. Slightly worn from an intense round of sparring, sixteen men lined up before me awaiting instruction. They ranged in ability from beginner to 2nd grade instructors, but even the newest of the beginners was more experienced than me. (Since I don’t think six months of watching Bruce Lee films with my post-college boyfriend counts as Kung Fu training.) And there was no way to fool them otherwise — I had already made a rookie mistake of greeting them with a hand gesture that implied I wanted to fight, not say hello.

Another 4 years of capoeira to come!!!!!

Before this week, I was concerned. You see, my transfer date was coming up. I have been training in capoeira with my group for 3yrs and some months now... and I was looking at the 99.9% possibility that I would be transferring to a different city who knows where.

The tiger stylist only mimics the tiger but can’t bring down a water buffalo anymore than the crane stylist can dunk his head into a lake and pull out a fish in his mouth.
In nature you see them as the siverbacks protecting his troop, antlered stags protecting unantlered doe’s and young, mother bear protecting young from male bear, stallions protecting against wolves and mountain lions, hippos that have tamed crocodiles to the point where baby hippos can swim freely among them. In humans there is the martial artist
