Well, this forum has certainly set a record in lack of Posts over the recent months, so I herewith and hereby formally request GEM Sensei, who I dissappointed rather badly at Summerfest time (MY BAD so sorry GEM SEnsei really) that he allow me to take the lead on "semi or totally moderating" this forum as well as my own.
There is a full time fighting Program in Quincy on sundays, taught by a friend, and if I can haul myself up there I might be able to contribute a lot more-----oops-back in a mo!
OK-I will also be asking him for permission to post drills from the Ta' chi Sytem, and or application and core movements, which I will do when given permission.
I will also post on the "Iron shirt GiGong" and things like the Basic Wu Ji (Wu chi) starting position.
I would like the forum to be as illustration packed as is necessary and feasible.
I also have no qualms about post matter (Daini Yakusoku) and the New Form of the OKK named Ryuko.
I am sure knowing the parties involved a very little that both will undergo more changes.
I have develope a real basic Bo Bo Kumite based on Kumite three and a Sai form (the Konudo ones are very long and, although I havelearned them once (Tshikkinschitahaku no Sai and Hama Higa no Tonfa-Kudos to the Higa Family, assuming my guess is correct.)
As Available in the distant future might be the "Gim" (light straight Chinese Sabre-unamed) form.
So, I have been working on a "bladed stance" Kumite utilizing the Wing Chung Block system.
I all fairness to my students, I will have to post this with minimal practice time in the dojo becasue most of my students are going up for promotion fairly soon.
but I will post it fairly soon and I hope to get the necessary pictures to do it some justice.
Of course, since the subject has never come to my attention in a :"Hey, we don't do that any more, I will be happy to repost for discussion all the old Kumite.
We are on our FOURTH version of Sanseirui Bankai and i do find thechanges, mostly in 'presentation" ( appearance) rather than in technique (substance), but then, I am not the "boss".
