Some guy named Chris is really the moderator? Thats cool. So far, in emptyflower ... the only video that got voted on was Chris, lol.
I agree with you about being taught and not being able to learn the perfect form from youtube. In fact I agree with everyone who thinks learning from a video is stupid. But everyone is under different circumstances and have different training histories. And we can still observe, anylyze, and talk about things. We can ... I have seen people share ideas before. I have seen this! I swear to God, I have seen people share ideas. You must believe me.
Every one wants to be the "nay sayer" or the "no its not done that way". Yes ... of course you are right! I agree, and so does every one who is serious about Xing Yi.
But back to the subject at hand - In reality the first question is just asking which form presented in these videos has the most opportunities to practice and drill jing, compression, retreat, etc. It is not asking what are better ways of training, or what system is better, or anything of the sorts.
Its work! ... if folks dont want to invest time into it, that is fine. But as of now, this post is in mutltiple forums and not a single person has given there Opinion on any video, which is all I ask. Every one has argued against this and preached how Xing Yi should be trained as if I would had disagreed.
People ... just give your opinion. Your opinion counts! lol
If I can make it any easier ... I would. Ok I can ...
Pick your favorite video. ...
