Question:

Do any "Internal" practitioners spar? What would it look like if they did, a scene out of "Trancers", lol (not trying to be a smart-ass...I just thought that was funny). This is a serious question though and I wouldn't mind anyone's thoughts on this matter.

Also, would an internal stylist ever fight against a "external" fighter in competition? Say, an MMA competition??

What are your thoughts about this anyone?

I'm guessing that the internal stylists would wager that the "external" boys wouldn't stand a chance, right?

You can't have an outside without an inside and vica versa... therefore you have to train them both the same. External training is a reflection of what's going on in the inside. If someone claims to be "Internal" or "External" then all they are doing is pronouncing which side they've neglected.
