    No new hobos....

    ...but maybe some new got qi girls. It's all up to them now. Will they follow through or will they go home thinking 'who was that dude and what did nachos have to do with anything?'

    NS: Sorry we didn't get a chance to chat, just that 'head nod' greeting from afar. Everything I looked at you, you were busy, and then suddenly, you were gone. I heard there was some difficulties finding judges for the traditional rings to give you first string guys a break. By the end, I noticed several judges with an extra red shirt on top of their green or yellow one.

    This is not a dig on the competitors themselves or thier performances. I just think the design of the form itself is worse than the old compulsory one (not saying the old compulsory forms were bad at all). It clearly shows the slow change of wu-shu towards gymnastics with kicks and floor slaps. There were hardly even any punches.

    some friends are talking about the apps of the routines.

    both hands on the ground, I said that it can be to avoid the attack at high and grabbing some sand to toss into the eyes of the opponent etc.

    jumping and running, I said it is to persue the runaway opponent.

    flipping and tumbling, eh eh eh.

    those are better...

    berkeley sounds good, either way.... traditionalist or not...its just a competition anyways... I'm not sure why people get all ticked off about it being "traditional" or "modern," Its like someone trying to say "i'm more Chinese than you are," when you are both from the mainland....you know, "big deal," so there isn't any sanshou at this one...

    You can see my kung fu demonstrated in the vid above

    That's me in the back of some of the group demos - sitting on my arse - fiddling with the camera.

    My camera style kung fu
    is very good,
    but still,
    it lacks the power to kill.

    Not only are we giving away the standee at Berkeley, we'll be giving away two tickets to an advanced screening of Forbidden Kingdom.

    Come on now, will any KFMer be at Cal? If so, please, no more youtube vids of my fat ass posing.

    I'll try to drop in to say hi.

    If I do, we should try to grab lunch/coffee if you're not too busy, but I have a feeling you'll have a full schedule.

    Knowing you, you'll probably find me before I find you...

    What? Just Ravenshaw? NorthernShaolin are you coming? kungfuyou? Siu Lum Fighter? hskwarrior?

    I know gregdread will be there. He's coming early to help me set up the Forbidden Kingdom standee.

    P.S. It'll be good to see you Ravenshaw. I'm eager to catch up with how you've been doing.
