19Aug12 Experimentations CLF & Stick

So today's training was all pretty much experimentation. Started the morning taking some of Sifu's CLF set, and playing with ways to mix it up, or blend other techniques into it, etc. Just basically feeling around different transitions and such, and I want to continue doing so, to make sure I don't get stuck in the routine of the set. Later, going toward afternoon, I walked around the pond for a bit to see what was new with the plants and animals. During this visit, I stopped in an area I call the Owl Wood (near a great-horned nest) to practice moving my stick... hmmm, that has a funny sound to it. Anyway, I'm going to approach the stick in the manner of letting the weapon itself teach me, and see where it leads. I've made the video short enough to demonstrate what both of the above approaches are looking like at present, but not so lengthy (hopefully) to discourage viewing. I even included some backyard punch, punch in there for The Doc! HaHa! Enjoy!

By the way, Sifu... I listened to your philosia video on "Being Original" this evening, and I don't think that the direction you're taking FMK is going to hinder your business at all. It might feel a little risky, because it's not what most kwoons promote. But on the other hand, that is what will make it all the more unique and attractive. I don't suspect anyone starts off in martial arts with the intention of mimicking someone else's practice forever. Unfortunately, that's just the typical system they encounter once invested. For you to offer something different - the alphabets of a few existent systems, followed by strong encouragement to become liberated, to be creative, to develop their own - to me that strengthens the appeal of this kwoon immensely. That is what's going to promote modern kung fu
