    IMO, the jin used is very different. Chen Taiji looks relaxed but is like a stiff steel spring inside. Choy Lay Fut is more whip-like, using centrifugal force to generate power.

    One door close, another one opens.

    Print magazines are going the way of the dodo, so it was probably inevitable. Hopefully, you can develop new online revenue sources that will keep the content flowing.

  14. How can CLF forms from different lineages look so different?

    When you compare forms with the same name, they are completely different in terms of content and sequence. It's almost as if they are different styles.
