Glad to hear it. So far, I've only had one injury. Teacher was simply showing me a technique, a little pressure...and *twang/rip*...there went the shoulder. It was unintentional...I dread to think what the technique would do if applied full force.

I know what you mean!

Injuries suck. Granted, I'm getting much stronger stomach muscles since I can't do pushups and have to do situps or crunches instead.

The only thing that really bothers me is that I probably won't be a good idea to spar in the next tournament (on the 8'th) but it's only stop point, so I'm not too upset. I just need to figure out what I am going to do for board breaking. At past tournaments, I've done multi board palm heel / reverse elbow strikes, but I think that's probably out too...

Eagle Brand Medicated Oil. Tiger Balm, and Woodlock Medicated Balm - all are manufactured in Asia,


I was referring generally to the TCM/herbal remedies boom and not these products specifically? So what if they were made in "Asia"? They're still imported and distributed by US retail establishments... so unless you have some sort of anti-Asian sentiment, I don't see your point.

BTW, Tiger Balm has been around for a lot longer than I have... brought to Singapore by the famous HawPar brothers. I'm not saying anything's real or fake. You are....

Would it make you feel better if I had said Arnica or Comfrey ointment - both long established "western" herbal concoctions?

As always, buyer beware...

Uh huh... some homemade jows are made from vodka, gin or whiskey... personally, I wouldn't recommend drinking the jow... but sure... drink the vodka while you're making the jow... that's what u do isn't it?

Eyrie, I find your anti-Asian suggested charge offensive. you know damn well why. I'm done with the side-tracked conversation. seek out the witch doctors and feel good.

btw Laura, sorry to start the derail earlier.

You seem to have a real bee in your bonnet about those dumb ol Asians and anything that came out from that part of the world don't you?

ignoring the inserted innuendo of Asia-bashing and viagra-worship, you really make crappy arguments sometimes.


first you said:
Quote:

FYI, the "TCM" industry you refer to, are actually US companies riding the "new-age" herbalism boom... so are you saying Viagra is better/more effective than horny goat weed???




and after I corrected you and pointed out that actually, most of the TCM industry products are manufactured in Asia - only meaning Singapore, China, India, Japan, etc and that is fact. so what do you do, you turn over a race card on me when you know full well my family's ethnicity? do you always aim so low in making points by trying to lower the target?

but now you've retracted that into US companies being just the 'distributor'. I see.

see ya eyrie.

Whether you are part of the manufacturing, distribution, supply or retail, you are part of the entire supply chain and therefore part of the whole industry.... and since you didn't specifically say which sector of industry, one can safely assume that the intended meaning was the entire industry encompassing all tiers of the supply chain.

Manufacturing wouldn't be sustainable without distribution or retail or consumers... as long as someone is buying, someone will produce it... basic supply/demand economics.

Is that better?

Wow! I didn't think my mention of using tiger balm would cause such the stir.

Let me chime in, yes? Thanks.

Eyrie-You were indeed off base in some of your 'shots'. You could've taken out many of your "Asian" bashing statements and assumptions and your arguements might have held more water, if a bit leaky.

Eryie/Ed-I am with you that many medications in the US use synthetic materials that are indeed harmful to the body. I like Dragon & Tiger Balm and they work for me. This past Wed I sparred one of the lower ranks and used a leg lift block to stop his leg checks. At the time I felt no pain. After sparring ended and my adrenaline stopped pumping, I felt A LOT of pain. I could barely walk on the leg. Ice on the leg, then a hot shower with a dragon balm rub after and a heating pad and my leg was useable again for Thursday night's practice. I have proven to myself dragon and tiger balm works so I continue to use it.

And yes, it wasn't just the balm. The ice and heat and deep massaging with the balm helped.

At $3.95/bottle, I consider it a bargain for the relief it brings me.

Osu.
