I have started learning some forms from what is called in America kung fu san soo. According to the person on the DVD's, these are supposed to open the acupuncture channels, and massage the internal organs. I have learned two of these so far; I have some thoughts.

These dances are good for balance, and engage the mind in 3-d spatial thought. The movements lubricate the joints, increase blood circulation, calm the mind, and foster whole body movement in many directions and postures.

This is an exercise that gives energy, rather than taking it.

Good stuff.

Nice to see someone take mystical mumbo jumbo nonsense...

... and make some plausible sense of it.

I realized that I have found an art that I want to really delve into and devote my time to. After a long time of learning from here and there and absorbing information into the foundation I had, as well as re-evaluating my mental and physical approach to this foundation, I find this san soo.

From what I have seen so far, I find it breathtaking in it's simplicity and functionality. The training methodology is like a breath of fresh air to me, and the whole thing just feels natural to me.

It will be fun to explore this.
