Those that are the most sucessful are also the biggest failures. The difference between them and the rest of the failures is they keep getting up over and over again, until they finally succeed.

I smiled when I saw your post.
I started with Black Belt theater Saturdays/Sunday, Media buzz of the time--Bioenergy and a hurting thigh. I put my hand over it and it felt better. The guy who sold me one of my most prized Kung-Fu books Hung Gar Tiger-Crane (green cover) became an instructor to me eight years later. I got sais from a flee market. I really liked tonfa. I started to link juijitsu techniques from a brown book. Used to get-up to walk a circle a few times a month in the morning. Horse riding stance to pull my fist to a wall 200 times. Lift the legs 200 times. rub the belly 36 times with the breath. Strike the knees with the fists. Pinch your first three fingers and knock your waist then rub your waist before leaving bed..Nothing consistant except from year to year...Yagyushikage bokken from a brownish book, Bokken...
I got throught the Eight Drunken Immortals form once oddly the poem on them I started begins withy Li the cripple-now I'm cripple and my crutch I smiled realizing Li had an iron staff. Candle practice. Five animal style (Shaolin and Heung family). That brown book on Yang style the real meaning or the songs sort of thing--with the oval portraits. The orange Eagle Claw book. I met the nineth generation Ying Jow Pai Grand Master (If he was a policeperson).
I framed my attempt at a Kung-Fu on Squirrels based on liking kicking and being pudgy--they had thick thighs and good abdominals.
Fighting principles:........ Attack extremes (became multi faceted)
Principles:...Design,Frequency, Comprehension, Extreme body-mechanics, Breathing, I like-the-look of-the-moves, I enjoy-doing-the-movement, Fun, Love.
Weapons: ...........Cymbols, Flute, Folding fan, Bamboo/Iron Rings
Specialty Weapon:...Railroad Spike, Use of No weapons
Philosophy:....Attack leaves one more vulnerable-develop such that many attacks don't hurt you; without being hurt, no good reason to attack.
.....................If anyone's to be hurt let it be me (let it end with me).Stop the ripples.
(Conditioning)Limb and body endurance. the Mind is part of the body; Breathing strength; control the distal end of the articulation; comprehend what you would like, yet do other than Want; speak as if it was your dying breath; as long as one is aware; breathe into the technique; if you use weapons to fight you are no good~; My best is my worst at any given moment; the body might make needed adjustment-merely comprehend what is bothersome and that you'd like it different; feet parallel; translate and transliterate ideas and ideals; as long as the mechanics of the technique are being followed a small move is the same as a big move (the dexterous and the elderly can perform to the same extent);no is;no strength
Primary feature:..Standing in place while attacked.
Strength base:..............................Breathing...Str ength like a sheet of paper added to a sheet of paper until you have a ream.
Trarget Areas:.....(inially)Throat(only strike in Squirrel)....(later)Inner aft arms-Inner thighs....recently(ten years ago)hip-pelvis.
Special Tactics: Mind-Sight, Subatomic Squirrel--Adhesion+2...Hands-Over.
I would talk about each of these.
I was twelve and been following pictures from books for four years. From the public sidewalk just off from the property I was there was a Squirrel eating. A squirrel eats standing and with its arms in front of it. Elbows down, straight spine except for a break about mid-way (two-thirds-up). I had liked kicking and it had big thick thighs. I might have associated that with Kick power or merely legs--kicking. it seemed to be able to bend while keeping its posture pretty-much and could bolt from standing 180 degrees backwards and rotate in the air before touching ground and hit the ground with velocity. I was pudgy and saw this as good abs. They had claws and played. I followed the Kung-fu model of combining animals--which was combining traits. I had chosen Leopard monkey. But with the sight of the squirrel and those thoughts I picked Squirrel only to later realize with the claws and playfulness and fast perhaps, Squirrel is..could be considered a Leopard-Monkey.
I decided on Squirrel an came into the house thinking-form--how would that go~
I was of a mind that a form is an actual situation series and that the last move's position suggested the next. I Started Squirrel's first form with Standing Squirrel-upper~
Two levels of Squirrel standing: Knees bent muchly, Knees bent slightly.
Addressing the extremes.
......address high, then address low. Address side then address other side. It got to be more at when busy in an area expect to be attaccked from the blind spot or weak/vulnerable zones.
......also, put something out there to engage incomming. It limits the attack force to keep their extensions in an ineffective zone. But the arms/shoulder become the casualty.
........attacking leaves one more vulnerable--I would rather read intent and prep for potential attacks and meet them than include my trying to attack.
The attack I see or experienced is a distraction and another/real atack is lurking/launched--One might get hung-up in being misled.
My timing is only good for a few exchanges--If I try to win if I failed a goal and do Pride recovery, I can get tiimng off balanced to where I'm a puppet and at a merciless opponent's mercy.
Use less significant attacks earlier--address the situation with the least needed level of complexity of technique.
Retreat to waste the incommings' inertia.
No Strength--movement is willed. Using brute force or concious muscling to do moves increases mychance or strain to that area.
The first was opposites up-down left right and No attack.. The other stuff came later.
Squirrel is no attack, Ernie Moore Jr.'s Kung-Fu attempt is the other stuff.
Squirrel was supposed to be defensive. And the most defensive minded aggression was no attack-my think-ish
Design, Frequency, Extreme body mechanics, Fun, Love, Breathing, Comprehension.
The moves should be tailored. I find universal basics to be Design--things have shape and function; and Frequency, addresses occurance. Squirrel has a Perpetual Motion theory--to design moves to be done when the body cannot nurologically bear-it. When Will is gone. When there is fatigue to failure. There should be a place in Squirrel to continue in the Not.
Doing for some theorized encounter years later..Other! Do ths to be fit and healthy addressing the total me? Hopefully not. Fun. I like the moves it feels nice. I get Wow! from having Squirrelled. Other than motivation. By-product.
Much ov moving in Squirrel stems from how the breathing goes. Breath with Will/Mind/Heart makes the Move.
Things are designed. Understand this and the Essence.
Love? All that is, in tune.Others and giving. What maters? What exists? Being.
I think. I Breathe. I Dream. And hopefully I don't Know.
No longer having to be at McDonald's.
There are heavier issues than weight, for me though. Yet mindful to practice something throughout each day. In Squirrel was a concept to constantly be practicing something body mechanics. This is why there is a variety if Squirrel stuff, in part.
Rotating the meat of the thigh outward and then clamping down to better grasp the bonerotate the bone inward. This seems a good setting. There's only the doing of regularly.
I can stand with my feet together. This is an accomplishment from October 2011.
Flexibility at the upper front pelvis/thigh--massaging the cords yields greater comfort and functionality.
Hands-Over does get me greater comfort but I should more apply that to the hard to get to deep thighs. I need to realize exercises or review Squirrel that was supposed to address that area and adapt for Strength recovery.
Massage of the pelvis can open the thighs. But With the padding gone unlocking my thighs opened me to more hurt. I was coping because of limited movement in the hip. I'd learned to walk with limited use of the hip through Squirreling, but thigh weakness prevents regular walking.
Releasing the thigh happens near the coxyxx and mid abdominalwith some side elvis massage.
239 lbs official (240._ showing)
Started this yesterday but continuing this today-the next day. Went to the like fourth specialist about my hips.
Hyperpronation of the right foot and severe/advanced bilateral arthritis of the hips was the general understanding.
Yesterday it was noted that there is no movement in my hips as opposed to the months earlier thought of very restricted--autofusion was indicated. Seems I had growth around the bone head -taking up the femural canal or the such.
Three months for one, then the other. First I am to get a family doctor for me as well as take care of my teeth--cavities, chips, breaks, I suppose.
Squirrel has a concept that the body can configure as needed. Next I should conceptualizetrimming the bone build-up or in accordance with that soften the bpelvis in variation for flexibility-plastic hips-shock absorb, limited jumping; O.K. the speculation for how it plays-out is Squirrel avoided but having a conceptualization ...we'll see.

Four Saturdays ago I'd been at the West Virginia University Hospital.
There was no greatly remarkable numbing-tingling, until about Thursday five days later and got to an increased concern level on Saturday two days later. The part where I practiced Locking Fingers seemed noticable.
Supposedly an over reliance on the typical use of a crutch, damaging a blood flow thingie to my hand.
I was looking for a General Practitioner to be my family doctor [not had one since mid teens type of thing if not earlier. The surgeon won't proceed without the gp's O.K. (O.K. for surgery: the checklist...not a candidate for infection). I go back to the GP in two weeks and I'm supposed to get my broken-chipped ...teeth fixed so my mouth would not be considered a source of infection prior to surgery or some such.
I would like a water mark. I have some look on the inside with X-rayed films and when the panel of blood work gets back.
Come to find out the Surgeon's notes indicate six month for one including expected recovery...Hmmmmm?!
To address pain which happens when transferring weight: Keep the teeth closed so you don't crash your teeth on your tongue when it hurts too much; breathe out to reduce internal concussion when jarred/jostlted--In Squirrel I have found pain is less when there is reduced breath-stubbed toe and the such; press the Achilles tendon at the heel--stretching this tendon seems to aid in reducing the pain at slipping of thigh-bone-head zone in/at the hip.
I realized I used to literally practice iron wire kungfu by wrapping my limb--arm-leg, in a thin metal wire. It feels as though the meat/muscles of the things are pulled away from the bone. Jute twine made for greater comfort. I even used the twine at the ankle.
Combining stretch at the end of a line with hold the muscle/meat to the bone...pressing the ends of muscles to stimulate them-- loosen, thereby elongating the muscle reducing the difficulty of use...If I could design straps with studs [no jokes or allusions people, please- thank you] to keep those end from...pressing while I walk increases making walking attempts more bearable.

"Weapons: ...........Cymbols, Flute, Folding fan, Bamboo/Iron Rings

But before commenting on that, I just was crutching my way to the kitchen and I Squirreled...I think of situations and the techniques that seem to address the aspects of the situation(s).Decades ago I thought I might be asked to show Squirrel. What is representative of Squirrel?
rising elbow from a crossing counter clockwise open handed (palm toward face which closes as the elbow rounds);extend elbow--forearm from underneath-slightly raising the elbow (the hand--fingers seperated-a five hand, pinkey finger, ring finger and middle fingers thrust; pull to go the other way 'round (thumb leading, relaxed thumb parallel)-the hand naturally rotates palm to out--clockwise
pinkey-ring-midde stop as elbow locks shy of straight; Leopard's claw (long vertical); fist (long vertical).
I was actually choked and used this sequence up to the initial rising elbow. The opening sequence addresses upper body grab/chokes, Makes an armbar or wrist control. Bump them up then strike front then three strikes to the top.
O.K. weapons...I'm sleepy. In Squirrel rest when feel to rest. Weapons of Squirrel whenever.

Abdominal techniques during the day. Pacing my food intake. Revving the engine to burn what does come-in and feeding the engine in small enough portions to distribute it as it goes in, almost with one more step of squeezing out the urine and defication so its not in there for days to months. Steps to reducing my heaviness. I was supposed to be addressing my weight.
I find I'm interested in taste. Lots of tasting--eating too much at one setting. Tasting is some of it but more is the want-ish to perform the act of eating--in the mouth chew ...someting like that.
My right thigh felt especially worse three and four days-ish ago. My left thumb has been off since I let it get grabbed during a show me for a Japanese wrist control--the moment I felt the touch-hard and on bone I went from it but its like putting your knee on stone--a bone on hardness feeling that stays.
