  1. Ok let me put it this way how would a Taoist handle it if he was at a convention and almost ran into a person in a full costume and said I am sorry sir for almost running into you.. Then the person in question started yelling and getting really upset that the person assumed there gender. What would they say to calm them down?
  2. So is there a reason you guys can not answer my question? I asked a question why cant you give me a direct answer?
  3. It has been a long time since I have posted here. I do not really believe in any chi and mystical stuff anymore hence why I don't post here. But I still practice Kung fu and study martial arts for self defense purposes. Anywho in the last couple of years I have seen a lot of people online and in the news who talk of gender. Like there needs to be 50,000 genders and saying things like a woman can have a penis and such. Or people getting upset if you assume their gender. So I am wondering how would a Taoist handle this? What would a Taoist say to someone like this? If a Taoist meet someone and the person got upset that people were assuming their gender or that they did not feel comfortable using what ever restroom they wanted etc. What would a Taoist say to them? Me personally I am reminded of the Taoist philosophy that once you name something it becomes less. Like if you call a chair a chair now you can not eat from it or use it as a night stand or use it as a ladder. It is only good for sitting. Thanks
  4. I am wondering if I can get some input on some ways I can incorporate wing chun and a knife or a baton. I know there are weapons the baat cham dao and the luk dim boon kwan. But I do not carry those with me. Also they would be a hassle and they are both double handed weapons. I am only interested in single handed weapons. What I do carry with me is a knife with a 7 inch blade. Perfectly legal where I live. I also have a 2 foot baton. I do not carry the baton with me. But I can carry an expandable baton. So I am wondering if anyone has any advice on incorporating a single knife or a baton into wing chun?Thanks
  5. So Robert "bob" Kim aka Wan Qi is back at his old meditation scam stuff. Just thought I would say something so people do fall for it and give him money and such. This pretty much explains his stuff http://robertkim-scam-korean-american-conman.blogspot.com/ Her is his youtube page. https://www.youtube.com/user/yogameditation Even though I dont believe in most of the stuff on this forum anymore just wanted to try and help other people. Thanks
  6. Ice breakers for when you do not work?

    I always learn something new I try and always learn. I would say I'm being honest with myself
  7. Ice breakers for when you do not work?

    I am in a similar position for around about two and a half years I looked for work and I could just see the job I wanted disappearing more and more due to technology and a lot of jobs going that way. So I asked myself would I rather do a job I hate then just do nothing and be happy. I do get a monthly income that I can live on so I don't really need a job. So that is what I am doing now I am still grappling a little bit with the fact that society expects me to get a job. In case you're wondering the job I was looking for was computer repair.
  8. Ice breakers for when you do not work?

    Can you please explain what you mean?
  9. Ice breakers for when you do not work?

    Do you not work due to disability or something else or just no jobs because of technology?
  10. So in America a popular way to get to know someone or to break the ice is to ask what a person does for a living. Well with the current rate technology is going jobs are going to become less and less and will become somewhat of a rarity. So I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for icebreakers that people can use that do not involve asking what the person does for a living what do Eastern countries do and such as far as icebreakers go? What are the customs for ice breakers and getting to know someone in Eastern traditions?
  11. Moderators can you please delete this at the moment I'm looking more locally if need be I might put up another thread.
  12. So I was wondering does anyone on here have any real world or sparring experience with impact weapons such as batons tonfas saps etc Or strike enhancers like brass knuckles kubotans etc? Like how well do they work in a fight? Did they break? Did they hurt you more than the opponent? Etc? Any input is appreciated. Thanks
  13. Really i had not heard that about the Dadao?
  14. Just had to post this cause this is some of the best kung fu i have seen.
  15. So in "ancient" times "anything before 1960" in china and other Asian countries how often would a martial artist carry a weapon? When they were going to the market? To the seamstress? To a bar or pub? Generally out in public? What wear the laws in those times one weapons?
