Hello peeps,I am an east coast OG -38 years goin' on 14 kinda like all ya'll.
I have been lucky enough to have been introduced to skateboarding in 76,and skated well into the late 80s.At which point I got in some trouble and moved around a bit,Once I settled I was VERY Lucky to have met an INTERNAL Energy Martial Arts Master [although he would never call himself that]-from Hong Kong-Named Wai Lam.
Mr Lam is a Hsing -I /Chi Kung/Nei Kung expert as well as a master herbalist/Physical Doctor.
Mr Lam is an unusually powerful person and can break bones with very little exertion of energy.He is like a 5 foot 5 inch tall 145lb portable nuclear power plant that can destroy you or heal you.One of a kind to be sure.

Hsing -I is a very explosive devastating form of Gung-Fu.
Utilizing Qi or internal energy to defend oneself in a fight and to kill/maim in a cold ruthless and efficient manor.
Hsing - I[pronounced shing eee] translates from chinese into
"Mind form Boxing"-
As soon as you think about a move or an angle/punch your body reacts.There is no screaming/yelling/high dramatic kicks etc- or muscle contraction like in Karate-in fact one trys to stay loose and relaxed so the Qi can flow.Hsing-I is based on a straight line-with smaller hidden circles.
Long Story shorter - Mr Lam and I were watching the Dogtown and Z Boys Documentary dvd together and
Mr Lam sees the footage Of Jay Boy Ripping the banks at the schools and freaks out- and in his thick Chinese accented English jumps up and screams

"Look ,,,this fucking guy is doing Swallow Style"
[Swallow is an animal/bird form which is very low to the ground and which will literally focus on ripping someone's balls off and clawing out their eyes}yet swallow looks beautiful and graceful.Much like a lot of jay' moves.

This led to a protracted amount of rewinds and slo mos so we could see what jay was doing.Then I remembered a lot of that schoolyard footage was taken from Hal Jepson's Super Sessions which we watched as well.
So we keep watching and Lam proclaims Jay Boy/Bertelman Natural Martial Artists and Announced -

"Skateboarding/Surfing IS A MARTIAL ART"

Jay Adams= Bruce Lee
Danny Way=Jackie Chan/Jet Li

I know I am overstating the obvious but I thought it would be cool topic for discussion as well as my first post

The thing is L13, Yer not spose to tell anyone, Jays been keeping it a secret. shhhhhh

Just kidding.

 

Naw but Kung Fu and skating are good together, I watched Shaolin Soccer and it makes me think of how that could be skateboarding. Hosoi has always treated it like that, and it shows. Horse stance is a good way to build your strength for skating. And streching is key.

 

Welcome..

Nope, just a new guy nicely introducing himself. What are the odds?
