The Yin Yang Viewpoint of Karate, Kung Fu, and Other Martial Arts

The Yin Yang of the martial arts, as in Karate and Kung Fu and so on, is basically saying that the universe comes in halves, and that these halves vie for dominance, and that this creates a wave form.
All true. Check out the video, then I’ll tell you more.

But, how do you make this happen in the martial arts?
First, you understand that the body is in two halves, and you practice all your techniques, forms, and whatever else on both sides. There should be no difference between your right side and your left side doing a technique.
Second, you explore the hard soft concept.
Mind you, one is not better than the other, it is only by understanding both that you make true progress. After all, there is a time to strike, and there is a time to harmonize. I call this force and flow, and now we are down to the heart of the matter.
The universe consists of objects that fly through space; every single object in the universe falls to this definition.
Force is when you go against the flow, flow is when you go with the flow.
Do you understand? It is a simple ‘on off’ switch, and it makes the entire universe a binary code.
Oh, if Neo had only known that he wouldn’t have had to suffer so much. He would have known how to deal with the decision he had already made.
Now, put that together with your ability to handle a person. Simply go against him, or go with him, and you have all the potentials of the universe open up to you.
That’s the skinny, but only the slight skinny, on what the Yin Yang really means. Come on over to Monster Martial Arts and get the rest of the story. Pick up a free martial arts book on the home page.
