Re: Martial Arts and Sun Tzu
- On this topic, I observed a Wu style Taijiquan course in applications
taught by Eagle Claw Master Leung Shum last night. Very interesting.
It reminded me of Aikido to a certain degree, mostly in the way the
the student places onself in a position where one has a strategic
advantage to the opponent and where an ounce of pressure will overturn
them with little effort.
Like Aikido, there seems to be a certain amount of leading the
opponents mind to a certain place, so that it is easier to overturn
them by use of misdirection.
Of course, some of it is Chin na; and if you grab someone in a really
good joint lock, their hearts and minds will follow! <grin>
