That was the first time you reasoned it in a technically productive manner (I'll disregard the fact that there were not strikes incoming). So, if all your points are proved true, I should be telling my students they're learning a Chinese MA? Which one? I presume you would discount sparring other Marbo members (even though many have studied other arts), but I've not been KOd sparring with people from other arts, so I must have some idea of what I'm doing. Or am I just a very lucky LARPer?
