Re: Stanislavsky and Ki

???? I'm slow. What's your point?
Well; that particular point of yours was fairly cryptic and didn't seem to make much sense - I interpreted it as essentially "Try 'ki-movement' on Animal and he'll tear you up' or some such.

My point is that although we use different terms; Marc is a big proponent of proper fundamental movement - it is one of the cores of his teaching. Basically; if you attack him full-out, full force - something I'm pretty good at - or defend in the same way; he'll have you for breakfast. (Trust me on this. Ow. ) If OTOH you attack or defend while employing effective movement skills; you stand a much better chance when confronting him. Which is still, of course, practically none; but at least you last a little bit longer.

Answers are only easy when they're incomplete.
