George Xu (Xu Guoming) talking to Scott P. Phillips about the biggest mistake he make in his training.

He then answers the questions what is purpose of sparring and how important is ground fighting?

Below:

George Xu (Xu Guoming) talking to Scott P. Phillips about the differences between predators and humans. Xu explores the implications of these differences for martial arts training. The Chinese four-word phrase mentioned is from the Taijiquan Classics.

The discussion begins with the idea that the body should be what leads the movement. The whole torso should move first. Humans generally move the hand first.

The second part of the discussion deals with the idea that predators do not rely on strength for stability. Instead they use balance. This is a corollary to the idea that humans carry their weight with their legs.

He then goes on to discuss the idea that a predator’s mind does not dwell on its body but on the wildlife around it; its outdoor “refrigerator.” A predator is quiet (yin) while being in action (yang).
