And I am not sure if your post was directed at me or Jim ...but I'll answer............I haven't said don't condition ...but to me , well I get the impression that the only thing that you do is condition, which is why you are so sensitive about it , would you be as annoyed if I said only do the 3 original katas of Uechi ryu and discard all the other information added by the Uechi Family?
.how about if I said don't do the Bunkai....go and invent your own, would that annoy you as much?........but No I have said the unforgiveable thing..........that conditioning is not relevant, or really not that important ...that fitness is more important.
FWIW..I do condition..but not in the way you do...........I condition when I cross arms with the Ving tsun group that I train with, and also when we go full contact doing escrima.....and I have been known to tap my legs with an escrima stick from time to time , although I class that as boredom and not training..................is that important IMHO No.not even close...................in the past I have seen clips of the group that you train with, so I will comment, if you have trained with Boxers then they are not the boxers that I have trained with........................Really you have no anger in your eyes..............No fire in your soul
"They have given us into the hands of the new unhappy lords,
Lords without anger and honour, who dare not carry their swords.
They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
Their doors are shut in the evenings; and they know no songs.
The Secret People, G.K. Chesterton

Not that it will make a lick of difference, but....
Many folks have put down elements of what I do on the NET... My reaction is only to try to explain why we do what we do... And if they still put down our stuff....? My reaction is Big ***** Deal... To become so incensed, so enraged by someone's comments/opinions, to someone stirring the pot, as it were, only serves to elevate the critic to mythic status and call into question one's own 'centeredness..'
"It has nothing to do with his opinions of conditioning,"
I think it does......I think that you are involved in some kind of cult where
all rational thought is blown to the wind..break loose

Infact, the best of the best all use lots of movement.
If you say so.. I am not sure what you mean by 'lots of movement' I am an advocate of *conservation of movement* but that's me.. In any case it's off topic as far as I can see here...
