Robert W. Smith On Internal Martial Arts


Robert W. Smith Punching Wang Shujin

From page 22, "Hsing-I, Chinese Mind-Body Boxing":

"A system based solely on body mechanics remains forever at the level of calisthenics and rudimentary fighting. Functionally, such a system is limited by the fact that in the animal world man is something of a weak creature.
Except by recourse to his brain, he cannot stand physically with most of the other animals.
But the brain itself needs to be checked and trained. The trouble with urban cultures throughout the world is that man's brain is out of control. The internal imposes the restraint that, paradoxically, leads to freedom. The mind is king -remember this- and must be accorded priority over the body."

"The trouble with urban cultures throughout the world is that man's brain is out of control."

"The mind is king and must be accorded priority over the body."

Are these contradictory statements? If not, why? And what does it mean for the mind to be accorded priority over the body?

there is "body" or "brain" just YOU, or should I say..ID?

The ID must fight, the "body" and the "brain" can later write about it....but this is the "trouble" with urban cultures.

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across
a blog that's both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking
intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I found this during my search for something regarding this.

Martial art is really great to learn and fight against the opponent. This will keep you fit and give the right way to practice. Don’t go with the walking shoes for men in case you want to go on martial art. You will need good athletic shoes for this purpose!
