    Default Names for things

    Hello All-

    Last night at class, we were talking about the various names Parker had in the techniques for parts of the body or weapons and such. I haven't seen a list of them here yet......thought it would be fun to start one.

    So far, we talked about:

    Feathers: Hair
    Twigs: Arms
    Branch: Leg
    Clouds: Eyes
    Leaves: Fingers
    Storm: Club Attack
    Lance: Knife
    Rod: Gun

    Have you any to add??

    Thanks

    The crane is correct

    Pendulum is a block that swings side to side.

    Wing is an arm or elbow

    Death usually involves the neck

    Fans is the double parying action used to block the punches.

    Hey Rob,

    Do you mind if I put that in our newsletter? I'm sure the students would love to have it.

    What techniques have the word Dragon in them? I am racking my brain and can't think of any.

    Except 'little dragons' and they are little kickers for sure.

    I see two definitions for 'Cloud', but none which matches our use. I always thought 'Cloud' was the lungs .... they hold air air ... think 'Gathering Clouds'.
