    Drawing diagrams was the way of taking notes for me in the 70's and early 80'.

    Nowadays, people may use the digi cam and camcorder.

    I was going to recommend ex-lax but now I realize I misunderstood the topic.

    The crap that many schools do is not the crap I was taught or train in or teach.

    Dam nit... it made sense when it was running through my head.

    Okay, this is really sad; I was in a tournament going back about 20 something years ago, in NYC. There was this guy, wearing a camo Karate Gi, or Ninja outfit, not sure which, doing a form with a folding wooden chair. It was ridiculous. He would place it on the floor, kick over it, sit down and punch in two directions, fold it, unfold it, punch through the space in the back, this would go on for awhile. I went to the bathroom, and when I came back, he was still performing the set. I mean, it was that long! It's bad enough that some charletan would teach his camo-clad students a freakin chair form, but on top of it, he made it so long and...complex! As if it were some sort of real technique!
    Ok, it gets better...or worse, depending on how you look at it. There was (I'm not sure if it was the same tournament, or it was the same guy at a different tournament-it was so long ago) this guy who did a "form" with a Chinese Straw hat-he would have it on his head, grab it and flip it down in front of him, flip it back up and put it on his head, then punch. Then he would turn, flip it down, flip it back up and then do some other move. This went on forever. He had to be from the same school. The judges had that blank stare on their faces that one gets when they are in utter disbelief.
    These must be the secret scrolls of the deadly chair form handed down from one generation of idiots to another. Evidently the original keepers of the scroll perished, probably earning a Darwin Award in the process , but the technique lives on!

    Thumbs down Well, it's good to see CMA people putting their time to good use!

    There are already 'bench' forms. Although the two I have learned are quite cool, (one is drunken) they are not high on my list of forms that I will ever have to use in real life. I am not going to get into a fight after sawing wood (closest equivalent to KF bench today - saw horse) and I don't see me in a biker style bar where I might pick up a 'stool' and fight a gang of thugs (I always wanted to write the word 'thugs') So what's the deal here?

    I'm with Sifu Kellerman. There is so much cool KF out there, why do people still feel compelled to make shiit up?

    That was great SPJ. I've actually seen a "traditional" folding chair set using one of those small double X style chairs (for lack of a better way of describing it). One of my favorite chapters of the development of modern wushu that many overlook was a period right after the Cultural Revolution when they developed all these sets using "People's weapons" - mostly modern farming and household tools. Stuff that came into fashion were sickles (actually there is some traditional sickles called lian dao), sledgehammers, folding chairs, yokes, even the covers of giant cooking pots, all sorts of odd common items. It was short lived, just post CR and pre-modern wushu.

    Wouldn't that make the stool too soft for fighting? Or is the goal to produce a flexible weapon?

    Well said. Mud slinging is a viable weapon to the eyes.

    You may use a short staff and practice the same routine.

    Naah, it is a made up set for entertainment.

    Exactly opposite the way a stool boxer fights with his monkey.

    I happen to know you're wrong. If one wants to fight well with their stool, one must fight with their stool every morning, and again at night. Clearly, it's the same fighting with your monkey.

    It is a rare morning that I do not fight with my stool for at least an hour, sometimes two. It is hard practice, but the feeling of accomplishment that follows is worth it.

    You are not the monkey stool king!

    Alas, I only wrestle with my stool perhaps once, maybe twice, per week. My lack of "live" training is holding me back!
