Misconceptions About Tai Chi Chuan “Ward-off”

Last summer one of my Aikido friends came up to visit, and we had several hours of standing grappling and some cool knife stuff. When we were pushing hands, I was trying (successfully) to use ward-off (as pictured above) to neutralize his arms and torso.  As you see above, there is a nice, round feel […]

  • Review: “The Truth About Wuhan” By Dr. Andrew G. Huff
    Want some serious information about the origins of the COVID virus? “The Truth About Wuhan” is the book for you. Dr. Andrew G.

With that said, I really liked reading this book. As I wrote, […]

  • Review: “Comanches” By T.R. Fehrenbach
    Review – Comanches – by T.R. Fehrenbach This was a fantastic read. There are several versions of “Comanches”, by T.R. Fehrenbach. This book is definitely politically incorrect by today’s standards, but very, very real. The violence committed by both the tribes as well as the whites is well documented. More on that later. I first […]
