Hello Van,

It is slowly sinking in that you are truly the Master of the Crane. Every Wednesday night I work out in your Torture Chamber I see more and more of the speed and grace of the crane in your kata; an entity which begins to reveal itself only after a peiod of time and many observations. To study how you move and the manner in which you apply yourself to these movements is a complete study in Uechi-ryu altogether; something that cannot be learned in weeks or even months.

I would like Chong to watch you perform your kata sometime and relate to us what she sees; she may be able to understand much more than I, and right away.

Again, Van, thank you for teaching me.

Dear Allen ,

Your beautiful wife Chong would be most welcome to visit the "chamber " , that is , if she can stand the smell, blood , sweat and tears of the "garlic chompers " for three hours ! { maybe she can wear a breathing mask }

You are a good student ,you work hard , you keep quiet …. glad to have you aboard !

Peace

So the aromatic influences really WERE garlic. Hmmm... Maybe the best combative is to drink a glass of g-juice before class.

Back to the TC. If one trains himself using your prescribed methods then it can be said one is tuning his gross-motor skills, the very concept you relate in your forum to be the only reliable attribute when the chemical cocktail kicks in.

In the beginning, practicing this way looks 'gross' and jerky, but as the transmission of power from the center (or the floor if that is your reference point) continues to develop, the kata begins to smoothen as the grace of execution develops while the delivery of that power increases.
