Hello Ken,

Could not say as was not there myself when the techniques were first used/invented. Refuse to believe that HIGH only appeared for the very, very first time ever in the last fifty years. Not buying it...

Get hit by someone, doing ANY technique effectively... its going to hurt, hopefully stop the situation period. To me, the high stuff requires too much effort, energy and maintenance...

Low far easier, less effort. Aging has not gotten any easier, and unlikely our martial predecessors were trying to somehow unhorse some the hardest way imaginable... :lol:

You are probably right, but even so, I'm not buying the basic premise. HIGH preexisted the modern age...
