George Lucas and Internal Training

http://www.iesb.net/index.php?option...ures&Itemid=73

Yet more evidence of the influence of the internal training of Japanese martial arts on the Star Wars series. Notice how almost all of the action figures are practicing sumo squats. A few of them have pretty solid upper crosses. C3PO is even doing a tenchi exercise.

It's all there, people! Open your eyes!

Re: George Lucas and Internal Training

It's not internal until someone can explain this in terms of the Dantien.

Unless stated otherwise, all wisdom, follies, harshness, malice that may spring up from my writing are attributable only to me.

If you can't see it by looking then there is no explaining. IHTBF.

Clearly the light saber is a device used the channel the ki due to scientific mastery of the dynamics of ki flow.

Ultracrepidarianism ... don't.

LOLz. Unless, I cross hands with someone with a light saber, or unless someone who uses the light saber can explain to me how he uses the Dantien roll in his saber swingin', I won't believe it's the r34l 1nt3rn4l.
