I second that. That video and ones like it do no justice to the true internal arts. What a load of crap.




And I'll thrice that. Is it any wonder people think Tai Chi and the like is a total joke when we have total f*cking idiots like spouting sh*t like this. Another person on the list of people I'd like to slap stupid....also all of the f*ckwits throwing themselves around. And anyone who believes in this sh*t. And anyone who you might think could believe in this sh*t.

Me thinks real Tai Chi needs a name change!

The potassium permanganate + glycerin trick is accomplished by preparing two pharmacy-style gelatin capsules, one with the KMnO4 crystals, the other with glycerin (glycerol) (C3H8O3). They are taped together, then concealed within the cloth, paper, or other flammable material. When the material is crushed so as to fracture both capsules together, the mixed contents produce a powerful exothermic chemical reaction that ignites the package. The permanganate, a powerful poisonous oxidizing chemical in the form of dark purple crystals, can be obtained at any store selling water-purifying supplies. The glycerin a harmless, thick, clear, syrupy liquid, is found at any pharmacy.

Tai chi does not need a name change,
Tai chi does not have some ultimate pride or honor to defend.
If people screw around like this, and people automatically relate it to Tai Chi, that's their mistake.
those who practice tai chi will continue to do so, and learn through it.
The whispers will fade
