    That article really isn't science, it wouldn't resemble science on a dark foggy night from a distance after you'd had a couple of drinks. "Feel the Qi" is not a scientific journal, the same comparison applies. It is in fact the worst sort of psuedoscientific pap, the text is meaningless, yet attempts to sound scientific, like a shampoo commercial. The nearest it comes to actually citing an article is mentioning that "someone" in 1896 said something vague about muscular activity and breath.

    If a science student at university handed that paper in not only would he fail but he would probably end up being escorted from the premises by security and given a good kicking on the way out.

    Uhm, because your stuff was sensible enough to come from a Bullshido troll? This guy is just, well, let's avoif the TOS violations, shall we?

    You guys are nuts. Instead of debating all this 'Japanese vs Chinese', 'Soft vs hard' etc, you could be in the gym/dojo/whatever finding out the truth for yourself.

    While you are still debating the effectiveness of a circular block and practicing your form in the air, there is a kid out there who is learning how to counter a right cross for real in a Thai gym.

    Flame away.

    So why are you wasting valuable time posting when you could be learning "th3 d33dly" in a Thai Gym?

    I'm... sniff... honoured!?

    And since we're on the pointless generalisation thread, thanks for coming! Get back in the gym and practice more instead of posting on here: I've rarely found my right cross so easily blocked by Thai guys - it's not their speciality, so please, keep trying!

    SifuMorgan, you also haven't talked about ging whether ging is relaxation and chi is hip rotation though . . .

    You know...this is the first place I've seen it romanized "ging" What are we talking about here? Jing? Jin?

    I'm curious as to what morgan would describe Fa jing as.

    *sets up praying mantis/CLF ambush squad"

    I do apologise...here I am trying to get back on to the point of this thread...

    Could someone actually get back on topic, I would appreciate it....

    Yes I think Jing would be the "correct" romanized version of the word. I don't really know anything about the romanized versions of chinese words (or about chinese words for that matter). I usually just use whatever version people in the thread are using for the sake of consistency.

    You are just a pathetic excuse for an MA'ist....
    sounds like a load of bs from someone who knows nothing.
    You have this idea that kung fu is greater than TKD and karate and that there is NO way that a karateka of a TKD fighter can beat you....
    This looks like a false sence of security to me...

    Pearls to swine?!?!?!
    U call everyone who doesnt agree with u idiots?...
    This must mean you are a far greater MA'ist than all of us who disagree with you!! You are completely blinded by your beliefs and u think in absolutes
    As the old saying goes "Only fools deal in absolutes"
