Then we have a roof top brawl, with nothing resembling years of either systems training showing itself in the fighters Just flying roundhouse punches and a tackle. All the lap sou, pak sou , etc, fell apart in these circustances.
What about he adreniline factor with inticate techniques that require small motor coordiniation, like in Chin Na or pressure point stiking? My understanding is the small motor coordination all but disappears, and there are only gross movement availble with an adreniline rush.
Perhaps, that is part of the reason some Kung Fu masters pick a favorite technique and do it 200 time a day the rest of their life.
What do you think and what is your experience?
Thank you for you direct and to the point input. I practiced Shorin-ryu for about 10 years. If I might ask, what brings you to Tai Chi?
I wonder how this topic of "adreniline dump", it with the complexity of Tai Chi training, like with the breadth and depth of Dr. Yang. I certainly know that not all Tai Chi training has depth and breadth.
I often wish there was a Hsin(g) Yi teacher here, because this system is also blunt and direct. These teachers are hard to locate, except perhaps in Shanghai, Beijing, Shanxi Province., etc.
Given this "adreniline dump", I ask myself how do I train in Tai Chi?
I do not have many answers yet, but I am exploring same.
Best regards, and Happy Holidays,

What to see in Nantong.? There are 3 sacred Buddhist mountians here, and one is impertant nationally, it is called Tong Shan (dragon mountain) a classic temple,with monks aand nuns, Long Shan (Dragon Mounain)overlooks the Yang Tse river. There is a great and new 5 star hotel at the foot of the mountain, and a block from the river.
Around Downtown Nantong, thre is a large and beautiful system of canals, part of which served as a mot for old city, about a 1,000 years ago. The people are friendly and curious about foreigners. The canals are especially beautiful to take a boat out on in the evening, and they and the buildings around these canals are beautifully designed, with colored lights and fountains. It is a little like a Chinese Venise.
I hope you can stop by.
Most people rely on the form's properties but this is false.
You have to incorporate a structure utilizing liuhebafa (concepts) within the forms' structure to be better prepared.
Utilizing shuaijiao or qinna within taijiquan is an excellent way to go and it is more realistic
