    Sounds like something I know.
    No martial arts training though, most lessons came from an old Marine, a young Rabbi, and a very intelligent attorney.

    I'm a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and I've placed in national tournaments in sparring. I wouldn't poke fun at any form of martial art but I will say that Tai Chi is not a very practical way to defend yourself. I grew up fighting and getting into a lot of trouble because of it but I've only been in one fight after starting TKD... It taught me to smile and walk away. I miss it a lot and still think about it often. If I was still in better shape I would definitely start taking Jiu Jitsu. I wish I would have known what it was back in 1989.

    WIT,

    Yeah....it's kind of funny but I was in my early 40's when I took up T'ai Chi and since I had done kung fu when I was younger....I took it for the exercise and relaxation more than for the martial arts application.

    When I asked my master Mr Hum the difference between soft martial arts versus hard martial arts here's his explanation.

    "Picture hard martial arts like this....your exterior shell/body is an iron barrier capable of breaking bricks, boards, etc..."

    "Soft martial arts....your inner core/body is iron....exterior body is wrapped in cotton"

    He said push comes to shove with the same level of training the soft martial artist will win out 9 times out of 10.

    It's the whole Asian mindset that takes awhile to get it....versus the western way of thinking....

    The soft arts don't fight force with force.....it deflects the force and turns that force/strength against the attacker....food for thought.

    Regards + HH

    Yeah, what I learned as Admin. at Max. Security Prison, at the Academy; the trainer (Captain) had a room there at the Academy, with Chinese swords on his walls, a Shrine, with "pics" of Chinese Masters, incense... the "WHOLE NINE YARDS". I worked with the energies (Qi/Chi), and learned confidence, having "FIRM" MINDFULNESS, having NO FEAR; be ready to die... BUT! There is NO death; your Transformed body can be MORE destructive (after death, if you are MINDFUL of your POWERS... there are NO limits). WOE to him/her who "kills" a "MINDFUL ONE".

    Well, I don't know about THAT, but,
    she is a legend in her own mind!
    Which I guess is better than the Zane Brothers slogan.

    As a high school kid I studied Chinese Kung Fu Kenpo. Very disciplined open handed style.

    Now my son is in 8th grade and just achieved his purple belt....and is studying under my old Sifu. How time flies! Pretty sure he could take me lol

    Nice thread.

    Worldwide there are over 200 forms of martial arts

    My question

    Can any of them stop a bullet from a semi automatic weapon at 5-10 yards

    If so, this is the style for me

    Spart,

    Some of the grand masters have reflexes so fast they've been known to deflect bullets using their bare hands...mind you
    this is someone who's been doing it for 50 years or so....not many ever get to that level.

    Regards + HH

    Spart,

    Good choice of music.....I always preferred their older grittier R+B songs.
