Coincidence?

I don't think so, haha :-)

Hey everyone, I'm Myles. I'm fairly new to martial arts, and have been practicing Hebei Xing Yi Quan over this past year (mostly just San Ti, and Ying Zhou), as well as some physical conditioning striking wall bag, and some Xin Yi Liu He Nei Gong. I assembled a spear and have been using it for mild strength training as well (i think that is my favorite training emphasis). I hope to continue to evolve and adapt as long as my body and mind will allow me to do so. I also hope to forge some friendships and better understanding of the arts through discussions on this forum. ;D

I was invited to join the forum by fellow RSF member chud, who's been kind enough to begin teaching me xingyi and bagua. I have no prior training in the internal arts (unless you consider aikido an internal art). The only arts I've trained with some consistency are FMA (Inosanto blend and FCS kali), BJJ (blue belt), JKD/Jun fan (which includes muay Thai and western boxing), capoeira (no way I can do it at my age now), aikido, some kenpo and wing chun.
Even though I started training back in '91, life always got in the way and I've never managed to stay in one system or school for long.

Hello there! I'm Niu. I practice Taijiquan, specifically ZMQ Yang-style, as taught by Ben Lo to my teacher's teacher. I'm pretty new at it, having only been practicing for 1.5 years. That time was mostly spent learning the single form this style has to offer, with a little bit of tuishou on the side for the past half year.

Seeing people on this board say they've been practicing for decades is quite intimidating! I guess we all have to start somewhere though. Looking forward to great conversations!
In line with the previous poster, my power animal is the cow. Cows are the best! :D

Hello,

I've been studying martial arts for on and off for over thirty years. For the past 20+ I have been studying CMA (northern shaolin and seven star praying mantis) and ICMA starting with the Beijing 24, 42, and 32 sword form (I know it is Wu Shu, but still). Moving on to traditional Yang and Chen Taiji as well as Heibei Xing Yi, and Yin Fu Bagua which I still practice today. I have been lurking in the shadows for a while on here and really find the discussion informed and stimulating.

Less is more.

Hello,
I started learning Lee style Tai Chi with Chee Soo at his class in Leamington Spa UK in 1982 while I was studying philosophy at the University of Warwick. I opened a club there and became a Tai Chi teacher. After Chee Soo died in 1994 I set up my own association with my partner Rachel, we now live in Cornwall.
I have trained and taught Tai Chi continuously since I was a student and also Feng Shou kung fu since 1985.
I have also studied acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine which I teach as part of our syllabus.
I have stayed in contact with my teacher's wife and she gave us the copyright licence to print Chee Soo's books which we sell on the internet and on Amazon.
My main area of interest is the practical application of Taoist philosophy.
