Re: IA - Internal Alignment
getting some rolfing done, do some yoga, pilates and spend some time in a boxing gym or take a dance class will all teach basic alignment.
Ultimately though for martial arts the importance in my opinion is the system. Internal training is based on feeling and to me having a set defined terminology and training practice that everyone utilizes is the key to understanding and improving.
No matter where I go to train I Liq Chuan we're all using the same language and then its a matter of time, practice and sweat for me to adjust my feeling to the terminology and the proof of 'correctness' is my application of the art. Sam and Dan are easily accessible for anyone who's serious.
