DISCLAIMER: These clips are for entertainment and general informational purposes only. We are not instructing you, or encouraging you to do or to believe anything, except to view, enjoy, and think. Never forget that martial arts, like any rigorous course of physical activity, presents the risk of injury, sometimes serious, disabling, or even fatal. Actual techniques should only be practiced in a controlled environment emphasizing safety, under the direct supervision of a Black Belt instructor (in whom you have trust and confidence), and only after you have been cleared by your personal physician.
Once again, we visit our old friend "Flow" ... this time from the perspective of "Silk Reeling" a group of concepts rooted in the internal arts:
Recalling what we mentioned previously, general characteristics of flow are:
1. There exists a core of instinctive movement. For movement to flow, it must emerge from your core of instinctive movement. Analyzing and thinking get in the way and leave you pausing or losing time focusing on extraneous detail.
2. Flow moves like water and goes where unimpeded, sometimes through the smallest cracks or kinks in your opponent's armour, sometimes like a tsunami overwhelming all impediments.
3. It packages effective force and/or technique and avoids the inefficient.
4. It's affect is devastatingly effective and typically overwhelms the opponent's ability to respond.
5. Flow is self-sustaining. It loops contiously, supported by the defender's underlying physical conditioning.
