Secrets of the Martial Arts

Years ago, deep in the fetid swamps of far Louisiana, I learned one of the most esoteric and secret of all martial art forms, Hung Too Low, from the closed-door Tai Chi Chuan system, Long Wang.

I have kept it secret all these years, for obvious reasons, but now I feel the time has come to share it with the world.

Use it wisely.

Bravo! This is really laugh out loud funny, for those in the know.

Steve Perry said...

Yeah, I'm waiting for the tai chi guys to jump on me ...

Jay said...

no licking of fingers in the fried chicken one?

Steve Perry said...

Only if it's the Colonel's ...

Dan Gambiera said...

Is that the form with "Grasp the Mare's Tail" followed by "Unweighted Back Flying"?

Steve Perry said...

Yes, I see you know the form. That section is just before Fair Lady Works at Pizza Hut; Wave Hands in Obscene Gestures; and Boxer Takes a Dive.

The second section is a lot more difficult: Grasp Sheep Tightly; Young Man Chokes Chicken; and Cougar Strokes Little Man in the Boat ...

Dan Gambiera said...

A lot like this one, then

I thought you might do "Golden Rooster eats it's own leg"

All right! We practice the same form. And I like the moves mentioned in your comment even better than the ones shown. My only real criticism is that your movements in Carry Dynamite to Tiger's Mouth weren't explosive enough.

There's a loose wrist twirl in Chen style. I've never known the real name for it, but always think of it as "Hey, sailor...!"
