    hey, can we call it IMA tea room.. or somehow squeeze tea into the title.. you know it's a cool idea.. anyone else think that's a good idea.

    ok. so isn't it a bugger when your mind drifts in standing.. Sometimes i even drift into some MAP thread discussion in my head .. bloody annoying.!!

    Hey, so anyone going to the upcoming ji seminar in gloucs. ??

    faved this cool clip yesterday of takedowns in san shou.

    [ame=""]San Shou - YouTube[/ame]

    It's what I'm trying to focus on application wise at the mo'. See some nice IMA principle in this one.

    A method I'm finding is applicable from tcc is lie (split), any thought, tips hints to share guys & gals..

    The one where he pulls his leg back and knocks him forward could be an application for repulse monkey. lie - issuing of parallel, but opposing forces.

    Anyone else focusing on a particular thing in their training at the mo' ?
