Just another Jake "Awesome" Mace thread

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.

Just another Jake "Awesome" Mace thread

Postby Bao on Sat Apr 25, 2015 6:34 am

Can't resist ... posting this. I think this is the only way to get rid of the revolting gut feeling.

He shows how not do yang style, then show how to do it. ...Without getting anything right.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxE1fXkZEXk

The whole form is performed without stopping - nope
An even pace - nope
Keeping a somewhat horizontal level - nope
Knee alignment - nope
Kua coordinaion- nope
Open/close - nope
Tucking in hips -nope
Opening and closing in every moment - nope
Whole body movement - Nope
Breathing through the nose - nope
Coordinating breath - nope
Breathing - hardly none at all. He holds his breath and gets exhausted.

Oh my.... And he calls this "Proper" way of doing the yang form and then tries to sell DVDs. It's revolting, really. I can't find another word to describe it.

The funny thing is that he doesn't realize that many people follow him just to get a laugh.

The guy who did this one doesn't think that Mace is up to par:


And this dude seems to have devoted a big part of his life fighting against Jake. Many vids like this on his channel:

to be fair, what he said in the vid is absolutely correct. (the half i saw)
but his theory he expounds is way ahead of what he can show in his form.

Usually, ima begins with having form and advance to no form. this is the
usual progression. what is the meaning of no form? it means you are full
natural. like one having breakfast or dinner, you do not need, use or adopt
any form, it's just eating.

but you cannot feel the power if you do not adopt the form.

now you have a problem.
how do you have strength/power/force with no form?
you need to do zhanzhuang.

About top being empty and legs having strentgh? He has no clue about wtf he is talking about. He is completely rigid. There's no rooting and the arms moving by themselves.

There's a restaurant close to me, newly opened. They do "asian" dishes without having a clue about asian cooking. Their bibimbap or stir fry dishes has no resemblance to any genuin dish. The taste and the presentation are all wrong. They don't even have most basic cooking skills. This is how I feel about Mace. He has just looked at a few vids, taking a few ingredients here and there and put things together without having the slightest formal training or any kind of foundation. It's weird. And the funny thing about that reastaurant as well is that it's going well and have many "followers".... :-\ It's all quite ridiculous. :(

You cannot discuss someone taste :D
if
somebody like shit -
let him eat it...
I simply avoid the places, where my taste was butchered and guts are stating WTF? 8-)
this is the main reason,
that now, I have just one, maybe two, places in the town to go out ! >:( :'(

I know a cat that started eating real food. After that he never ate cat food again. He would rather starve than eat it.

Taste can change if a person is presented something better than shit.

I`m sure about cats, -rock-
but
humans are different beasts , you know,
they love this msg ```., twist in the mouths :-\
not to mention "chemical brothers" new buzzing inventions.
they also may love Jake, `cause he is handsome :D
What I found odd - is as old as human kind, : really worthless shit is taken as the gold, by average 1/3 of the population....-oldman-

Not sure but I think Jake Mace started out under Shaolin Do and then went independent.
Might explain a few things.

Yes so it was. And yes, I know about his background and the controversies. :)

He has been up to discussions quite a few times earlier, so that's why I started this thread in BTDT. :P

I like it when Jake says he's dealt with many people holding his hand who wouldn't let go.

What the hell?

Jake is a 5 dimensional spiritual being Greg - we can't attempt to understand his words from our 4 dimensional perspective.

I think this clown is one of many who
Listen

Practice
Teach


He should
Listen

Practice
Understand
Teach.
As should we all.

Listen to what and learn what?
