Choy Li Fut sounds like some guy's name.

See if my memory serves me right. CLF was made by combining Taiji? of the Li family, Choy family and Fut Quan[aka Shaolin Boxing]?

My memory isn't as good as it was last month.

Started Chen Tai Chi Chaun about 7-8 months ago at the age of 39. Before that I'd done TKD for about 14 years (on and off) and dabbled in a bit of wrestling and capoerra.

I'm really enjoying the TC, particularly when I notice I've lost some weight!

What is interesting is realising the complexity of a move and then remembering moves from my TKD tul and how they could be reinterpreted. I also find myself thinking a lot more about the moves and patterns at odd times of the day (hands like clouds practice is not a good idea when you're driving ).

My sifu also teaches White Crane and Yang TC, so he shows us application etc.

Occasionally, however, I miss the sweat and pump up of sparring and more aggressive action. However, maybe I'll grow out of that.

Or maybe you'll get to the point where all that is part of your TC training. Best of both worlds!
