"I just finished listening to the last Tibetan Podcast Episode About Worrying. Best episode I've heard so far. It came at just the right time in my life and I appreciate it. Well done and thank you.”

Larry, A Student Sent me a Text :

I can't thank you enough for showing me what real kung fu can do. See you in the morning.

Real kungfu is more that has a lot to offer.. if you have just an idea of what you are looking for, you can find it.. I remember reading in a taoist text that we are born in balance, through time, distractions, analyzing, judgement, desires, influence of substances and others, lust, we get out of balance… but when we are born.. we are in balance, so every problem we were born to face, we were also born with the solution.

Hi Tim,

I just discovered your two Podcasts and I'm extremely impressed.

I love how you clearly separate the various aspects of martial arts (martial, show, health) and discuss how martial arts can be used to improve our daily lives. I particularly enjoyed the episode on Martial Arts Intentions and Routines. I got a lot from this and I'm working on a new training plan based on the ideas and areas of focus you mentioned. At the moment I am listening to the episode on how to train worry to work for us and I'm finding that very useful also.

I love the collaboration with Ben Judkins at Kung Fu Tea and the episode on the history of the Wooden dummy was fascinating. All I can say is that I love the shows and please keep doing what you are doing!

Just to give you some details on myself - I am a martial artist from Dublin, Ireland. I practiced Jiu-Jitsu for many years (before MMA made it fashionable). I also have some Wing Chun, Aikido and Karate experience but I switched to Traditional Yang style Taijiquan exclusively about 16 years ago and I am currently teaching Taijiquan here in Dublin.

Mark explains that his lineage is through Yang Cheng Fu and that it has a martial focus and one of the main reasons I switched was that I found traditional Yang style Taijiquan much more effective from a martial point of view for a person with a smaller build like myself than the Jiu-Jitsu I had been practicing. Interesting…

I was very interested to hear that your Taijiquan comes down through Yang Ban Hou. I have some experience crossing hands with students of his lineage when I was (briefly) in China and I found it a very fun and educational experience. I am on Twitter @markbrady77 (I am following you) and my personal club website.

Newsletter went out yesterday, June 2, 2015 with a new structure, schedule and a purpose to bring you information and updates.

For example in this newsletter, I take you through how to Recognize and Respond to Indicators of Worry in Children and Adults, step by step.

We will be adjusting the workshop and seminar schedules and packets. I am preparing to start taking occasional weekend seminar trips, so if you have an interest in me, kungfu style, strategies and techniques, contact me.

Reeling Silk TaiJi & QiGong Ebook is now at store. If u know TaiJi or QiGong and have wanted to know if you could use the practice to help someone else, or if you are an administrator looking for real experiences to make a decision to implement a program, then you will find this book useful.

Patrick, a listener that has become a friend whose question was the source of Podcast #46 : Martial Arts Question on Jui Jitsu, Aikido and Bushido : TKF 46

"I have now listed to this particular show 3 times. I really like what Iain has stated in that it is important that I feel comfortable with the dojo. I guess that I thought that the "spirit" of the dojo would be standardized across all forms within the same style. Now I know that I just need to do some window shopping and find a place that fits.

What is compliant or noncompliant training. Does it have something to do with the functional aspect of the training?

Have a great week and I will look forward to listening to the next few shows for I am a bit behind. ' Patrick'

Compliant versus uncompliant

This same question was asked internally as well.. generally what Iain is referring to is does your practice include a progression of developing an awareness and skills to deal with non-compliant behavior..

Examples Compliant Behavior is :

they will follow rules, not kick in groin, no hitting to face, quit when you uncle.. etc..

they attack fair, hand to hand, weapon to weopon.. like a fair contest..they attack one on one,

By FBI stats, over 40% of sexual assaults are by more than one assailant. Even law enforcement officers have to prepare, 40% of all attacks on officers of the law are by more than one.. to make it worse, sexual assaults are Way underestimated..

June 7, 2014, The Nation.com reports:

Corey Rayburn Yung, associate professor at the University of Kansas School of Law, concludes that between 1995 and 2012, police departments across the country systematically undercounted and underreported sexual assaults.

Yung used murder rates—the statistic with the most reliable measure of accuracy and one that is historically highly correlated with the incidence of rape—as a baseline for his analysis. After nearly two years of work, he estimates conservatively that between 796,213 and 1,145,309 sexual assault cases never made it into national FBI counts during the studied period.
