    Thanks for your thoughts on this. Are Hung Gar's five elements contained within a form, or rather are they principles in other forms (Tiger & Crane etc.) ?

    He was the same height as me. He attacked me and lost. Your posts are as ignorant and foolish as Mega_Fist's, but without the humour.

    Is Xingyi a good intro to the Internal Arts? Yes. End of story.

    Well then you undermine everything you stated about MMA being superior.

    Again, you're using an internet forum as some sort of conclusive evidence. Besides, why would people practise KungFu if they thought it was worse than MMA - there's no logic in your argument.

    Iron Shirt Qigong

    Can someone tell me about Iron Shirt Qigong?

    Is there any truth in it? Can it really protect the body like some sort of body armour? What does the training entail?

    Many thanks,
