I thought it was a very interesting interview. The way he approaches the more esoteric appearing phenomena matter of factly is compelling.

At one point he mentions tai gung and says "Tai gung means the lift the sphincter". I thought tai gung was in common language a vulgar or familiar way of telling someone to sit their ass down in a chair. Used in IMA context to denote the feeling of sitting down on the legs into a stance. I'm not a native speaker, just the context I've gleaned from instruction and even some movies. (The boss of team evil tells coach Golden Leg to tai gung and gestures at a lawn chair in Shaolin Soccer, for example).

Going to check out part two.

Interesting stuff especially the part where he talks about the Decompression of the spine.

No idea about this, but if you look at tMartial Man's Samuel Kwok interview, Mr Kwok also refer to "tai gung" and says something like that it's like tensing the buttocks.

That guy can really talk a lot can't he.

For me personally, I find I resonate more with John Kaufman's explanation of this style of WC:

Apparently, CST was able to impress Nima with his abilities quite a lot. But it didn't seem like Nima was ready to demonstrate similar feats himself. Perhaps in part two..
