Those that were readily recognizable to me in 1992 were the 3rd Brown Belt Broad sword, Tai chi Fan, sword, 24,64, and Buddha fist.

    I think these films/videos are treasures and for as much as those who could/would/should see them and enjoy them there are as many "foo/keyboard' naysayer and @$$ Wholes that

    If you had to compare the Indonesian school with its American offshoot, how would you define the main differences? ST/SD has a different curriculum setup, so of course the emphasis develops differently in conjunction with that and the student's interest, so I'm not saying one thing's better than another.

    Just curious.

    Not sure if this is the best place for this, but I was googling my username (I was bored ) for fun and came across this forum. I too am an SD practitioner and I am glad to see a fairly serious discussion of the system here. I hope to learn and discuss some cool stuff with you guys!

    I was at the seminar, and the bulk of what was different wasn't so much in the form, but the training. The training of individual muscles leads to more nerve activity, resulting in a more active brain.

    There's an excellent book out there called The Brain That Changes Itself, by Norman Doidge. It deals with neuroplasticty, meaning that the brain can adapt and change given the right nerve stimulus. Given that that's basically what 10,000 Lotus is about, it's a great read for someone who has learned it.

    I'll check the book out. I love to read. So would you consider taichi the opposite in terms of goals?

    I wouldn't say opposite. I would consider them different facets on the same jewel. Or different paths up the same mountain. You know what I mean :P Like Xingyi and Taichi, sure they look different, but when you break them down the principles are the same, but the methods are a little different.
