Re: Crazy Ki demonstration by Barrish Sensei
David, I'm gonna bow out as well. I intentionally don't post here or even visit much anymore and would just as soon keep it that way.
Two last comments.
I probably shouldn't have used the word parlor trick. It doesn't quite describe what I meant. Doing what he did is a skill, in my opinion, it's just not something I believe he can pull off without compliant and conditioned ukes. Like I said, I could get those people flopping around when I worked with them including keeping them from getting up with my "ki". As to the other part we'll just have to agree to disagree.
Lastly, it's largely irrelevant. I'd be surprised to hear that he's even teaching anymore.
And with that I'm out. See ya all in June when I make my next post.
