I kinda feel like the religious solicitors just stopped by (which they did).

Thank goodness "yoga pants" are not a thing in IMA (or maybe not thank goodness).

They have yoga pants - we have tai chi pants (silk pajamas)
They have yoga mats - we have tai chi swords

The target demographic is different, though (mostly young women for yoga - tai chi seems most popular with the old lady demographic globally)

But, but... but... Yoga has all of the hot girls and they all wear yoga pants... Yoga certainly does something extremely well and IMA should really try to learn from it.

This is a personal recording of a typical, unhurried pace execution of the bung bu chuan form (崩步拳) from the tai chi praying mantis style of kung fu (太極螳螂), of the Chiu Chuk Kai (趙宗師) lineage.

I'm 37 here, have been practicing kung fu since 2001, and recorded this in early May 2015:

So as the ladies grows older they toughen up some- out with the mats and sword in the hand

Yoga has very long tradition in attracting young woman on the west.
Reason is simple - you get nice "eastern mystery package " without B.S.T. /Blood, Sweat and Tears/,
not everybody has /or like/, go thru the "punching the face" experience.
BUT
It is Spandex and modern fabric what make it so pleasant for the eyes, not only old farts like me.
so

The guy in the clip is not talking religion he is talking process
It is quite revealing that what he is saying and its relevance to commercial ima is not mentioned here
Instead people go to girls with nice buts in yoga pants
Don't put power into the form let it naturally arise from the form

The situation with IMA and it's development is already too depressing. Better to bring in humor and joke about it. ;)
