So what good would a video do.
I'm wondering what the best example of 'internal' as offered by the internal theorists is. Surely there is some video? I'd think there would be given that there are a lot of videos of what people call external.

what is internal? everyone talks about it, but can't explain.
People have/had magainzes named internal strength and go on at length about it. I'd think they'd be able to educate us.

The Fabric of the Cosmos by Brian Greene ISBN 0-375-72720-5
A decent video, albeit somewhat skeptical and suspect, but makes you think, "What the Bleep to we know?"
I've done the last two, I'll check out the first. Thanks.

Also, on a simplier level. If we sparred NHB, and I was able to beat you by simply laying on you and moving gently and not even get out of breath....while you are gasping for air and using all your might to keep me from submitting you...what do you call that?
If you were to beat a person in that manner, an observer would probably says you used muscle, momentum, and friction. Are you putting that forth as an example of 'internal strength'? What distinguishes it from efficient use of ol external stuff?

A secret of internal strength?:
