    A Crisp BaGua 1930 Training Manual

    21/12/2020 Duración: 23min

    Nearly 100 years ago, there were several martial art institutes designed to stamp out the 'magic' and 'non-sense crap' that was running in several systems of martial arts. This concise Bagua training manual was released by an excellent practitioner, who was also a son to one of the best Bagua practitioners known. Yin Fu also became the equivalent of the secret service for the Emperor's circle, and was successful during battle testing. This 24 minute episode of part 1 lays the frame work of understanding of the core principles of the book and the art. Members receive early release and personal notes of the episodes.

  • Yip Man Starting in South China

    Yip Man Starting in South China

    07/12/2020 Duración: 21min

    Private Lineage stories are not history. Characters are added and removed, while other character relationships are altered. Not to mention that most lineages are a marketing tool, tilted to who-ever is being marketed. If you want to get a snapshot of the 'bigger' picture, you have to look into broader sources. Which is why we are going to look into the environment that Yip Man was walking into when he started his professional career in Southern China in 1950. **Spoiler Alert** This will fly in the face of some common lineage stories. https://kungfupodcasts.com/young-wing-chun-professional-in-1950/

    Sometimes, the harder you try, the worse it gets. That can happen in many things, take 'creative art', someone takes an old bed box spring, welds an old bucket and a chair on it, gives it a name and paints it.. calls it art. Someone else sees junkyard material that is in the middle of a campus. Martial Arts can take the pressure. Does it include weapons? If you don't practice self-defense, its not martial arts at all could be another argument. Before you start swimming in the quicksand, lets take a moment to see the trap, BeFore we get in it.
