Definition of Internal Practice

Chinese Martial Arts are sometimes divided into two adversarial camps: Internal vs External. This has always bothered me as it is usually in some kind of advertising where I see these terms. Over the years as I have kept abreast of anatomy, neuroscience research and related disciplines as part of ongoing professional development, I have always looked to resolve what I percsive a false distinction.

An update on my journey!

Greetings Sifu! Sorry it has taken me so long to post about my training updates! I'll be as brief as I can. My training is going so great. In spite of limited time, I feel myself growing in both mental awareness and physical cultivation. In my training, I have noticed more fullness on my entire body. In the last month or so I found my back (yang) to be opening up more and more, with this I have felt a more relaxing stretch that expands as opposed to the tension stretching I was doing to try and feel the yang. This hit me like a ton of bricks and increased my excitement for my training!
