-A whole lot of other crap you can recall on your own.. including your apparently prophetic 'so long suckers' post 4 years ago.. :wink:

Enough said. Don't know what the future holds, but rock the fuck on, Cap'n FOTN.

I believe I speak for Arck as well as myself when I say that, excluding DD, Prophecy, and Silver, you're all still whippersnappers.  :cow:

And if he's big, then he's slow.

Not nessecarily so. That's been covered here, there, and most other places that even know what a fist is, so I won't launch into it.. just point out that there are plenty of big, fast people.

To the topic, avoid what fights you can.. but failing that, wait for your opportunity. It's not a competition, so there isn't a penalty for lack of aggression. Stay back and take what they give you--less control they have, the more that will be. Go for the surprising angle, don't just rush in. As the old boxer's adage goes, the punch you don't see is the one that knocks you out.

*I am currently very thankful--being a cold-person--for air conditioning, after just surviving the hottest day of the year. Thus far.  :rolleyes:
*My little brother has started training. Oi.
*I've had one shirt put on "hole-y" status due to an overly friendly German shepherd.

A key concept in the martial arts is hidden in the fact that while you can't dodge bullets, you can dodge guns.  Thus, technique is many multiples more important than speed and strength.

Really just semantics at that point. My point of view says that if you have dodged the gun that someone has taken a shot at you at with, you have also dodged the bullet. In the end, whatever you think would make the concept clearer works. *shrug*

In any case, my main point was a focus on just the physical won't be enough to deal with a lot of people one might encounte; whether they have a gun, stick, or nothing in their hand.

At first glance I though the topic was something about speed and 'quick-kinesis'..  :rolleyes:

Any-hoo, just here to drop off a random tidbit. While speed is important to develop, don't think it's worth more than it is. You can rely on speed and strength if you're just thinking of being a fighter, but as this is in the MA forum.. if you're looking at it as a martial artist, look into and understand timing and all its aspects after you have reasonably good fitness already. After all, there's always going to be someone faster and stronger.

Something to sum up raw speed versus timing that you can consider.. you can't move in bullettime, but you can dodge bullets. Understand?

Meditation or (self) hypnosis, or some combination thereof, would probably be your friend in this regard.

Sol: If printscreen doesn't work, and you just happen to have a version of Paint shop pro around version 7 (Never used anything other than that and 6, possibly 5..) you can use shift+C to minimize PSP and right click to select an area on the next window to copy. Photoshop may have a similar function, don't know.. *shrug* all I could think of at the moment.

That or list the accescories you want and get someone else to do it and save it for you.

I would say it's entirely possible for you to have and perceive your constuct and, feeling the throb from your heartbeat, have the feelings go hand in hand. Or maybe you're actually applying the feeling yourself after having it happen once, and you (even if subconciously) expect it. There are a number of different possibilities. I would simply say try to be more aware of the feeling and where it's coming from.. and if it's just your heart beating strongly, don't worry too much about it. A ryhthmic pulse could even help your focus.

Meh, close enough. My hair is actually dark brown and not so scraggly, but it's dark enough that the blacks on these maker things are always closer than any of the browns.. mini-rant aside, it's not that innacurate otherwise, amusingly enough.

You could try to look more into it online, but I wouldn't advise trying to take any blows unless you have an actual instructor's training and his/her supervision.. this talking in a training context. It's not the best idea to take blows even in a fight.. the idea of 'iron'/hark ki training is to absorb punishment if you have to, not just to do so. Something to fall back on just in case, if you will.

In short, don't try it before you're ready, and the obvious fallacy of the internet is shown in the fact that you generally can't learn martial arts and such things without a real person helping you.

For a start, you might try looking up sanchin.

Unless you've been reading the members' pics thread, you must already be good at remote viewing..  :wink:

In any case, greetings.
