Taijiquan 'Circle of Trust' NB's brainstormin'

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.

Agreed, Charles. Plus, at the end of the day, only you can do the training of whatever you choose to practice. No teacher can practice for you, no matter how good their personal skills may be. Individual achievement in any martial art style is directly dependent upon the time and effort devoted to it. What others practice and promote has no affect on us whatsoever, imo. Observation of others over time ultimately reveals the value of what they have invested their time and energy in. Thus, I feel no need to either endorse or decry them along the way. My personal efforts are better spent in my own training. Just saying! :/

we are all different people with different mindsets and different views and goals. However i have courage. A coward is someone who lacks the courage to change something they can but doesn't. I am a artist before i started martial arts. my art and imagery is powerful enough to make you think! i am satisfied.

Do a search for user name neijiaboxer -- I believe there's a whole bunch of video he's posted over the years.

I can't say anything. But I think it was Tom who said that the new user was Neijia_boxer.
If you go here viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15706&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=105
Then you can read:
neijia_boxer - http://www.youtube.com/polariswushudotnet

yes, the admin and I disagreed on some things and he closed neijia_boxer. Casualty in the war against the woo-woo BS going on in tai chi chuan.

I wouldnt be me if i passively sat and watched this woo-woo BS take over. if i don't say anything and did not stand up for what I think is right, then i'd be a coward internally IMO. and that would burn me up inside, i'd rather vent and say what I see.

nothing wrong with being a lighthouse in the darkness of the woo-woo crap and help guide people to the right masters. you don't have to agree, but just as many do than not.
