RAT

The following typical threads that plague martial arts sites will get moved here if not just deleted: 1 - My style is better than Your style" - 2 - "Internal & External" - 3 - Personal attacks - 4 - Threads that start well, but degenerate into a spiral of nonsense.

If I can explain it in English, that's not what it means in Chinese.

Mozart's music was best when his motives were bad. "Meine tochter nicht mere" is better music than "Tuba miram spargens sonum" Perhaps he preferred the minor key.

I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

I just found out that the inhabitants of Venus should be called Venereals.

Ukuleles. Chordal rhythm accompaniment sounds great on a ukelele. Chord melody playing sounds quite passable if the arrangement is good. Ukuleles should, though, leave melodic fingerstyle alone. In that use, the instrument's soft voice and short sustain make it sound ridiculous, like a little child giving a weighty speech.

There's an LEO somewhere named Leo who was born between July 23 and August 22. There has to be.

People exaggerate the complexity and difficulty of classical music. Beethoven's harmonies are easier than Coltrane's.
