Re: Woman's Knife vs. Multiple Attack

Women Teachers,

I've been lucky. In my life, I have had several woman teachers. In my linage, there is a woman called the Princess Josephina.

She moved in circles within circles. She used rhythm, fluidity, timing and manipulations to engulf her opponents. She used internal energy.

So, have you noticed a difference in the styles and methods of female martial artists. In Taoist tradition, the female, is dark, deep and water. She is internal. The male is bright, light and fire. He is external. Tai Chi, Hsing-I, Ba qua, White Crane are internal styles that use female energy.

Any thoughts?
