    This was probably my favorite belt in Tracy system.

    I loved Sweeping Branches it was a fun technique.
    Crossing the Mountain was a innovative way of dealing with a kick.
    Two Man Swinging Gate is a a great technique, lots of interesting aplications in this technique.
    And my favorite technique in teh entire Tracy's system is Whirling Warrior.

    Although I have seen Crossing the Mountain against a kick, it is currently taught against a left/right punch combo.

    I am a fan of Whirling Warrior with just about anything grafted onto the end of it, especially something like Prancing Tiger.

    Isn't that the beauty of Whirling Warrior, the almost unlimited applications to end it with?

    It has been a few years, but I believe my favorite Tracy technique is Waterfall. When I learned this technique, I was in a class where I was the only female in a class of large, men. After I was taught this technique, I got together with another guy in the class and I did the technique on him.

    The amazing part was that I was just going through the technique, doing my thing and all of a sudden, my partner was flat on his back......and he had the wind completely knocked out of him!

    He was as surprised as I was.

    I started jumping around (I was 17 and a little spazzier then) saying, "It works! It really works!"

    I know it sounds stupid, but that was one of the first times I realized that what I was learning totally and completely works.

    Plus, I just like the flow of the technique.

    Sweeping Branches is one of the more difficult techniques. I teach it for an escort hold by two people. It can really work well in that situation. If done properly, you can really lock those guys up...on their toes, and then down to the ground.

    Yeah, I can see that, Jim. But I really prefer Folding Wings, and Folding Wings B.
