    Default Thank you, Dan.

    For your contributions; insight; willingness to learn before passing judgement; and for always being a voice for candor.

    The board was a better place with you, and will be less without your presence and input. Take care your health, continue being the good man we know you to be, and should fate chance to cause our paths to cross, I'll count you well met and friend.

    Humbly,

    Dave

    I knew there were some "issues" that created some road blocks in his training, but I didn't think he was leaving the board.

    I've always appreciated his input, regardless of whether we were agreeing or disagreeing. LOL His posts always had merit and insight. He is definately a valuable asset to this forum and all that come here to expand their knowledge of the art.

    That about describes it. Or maybe "stupidity syndrome," or "stubborn cuss syndrome."

    I'll probably check back from time to time, but not much reason to post. The geek neurologist turned out to be right, and I am showing signs of nerve dammage from continuing to train. I've pushed it about as far as I can. It's like smoking- took me several tries to quit. Still looking for a decent Taiji instructor right now (though the geek told me not to do that either), but they are scarce.

    Been fun, and found a lot of good people here.

    It is with heavy heart that I write my thank you and appreciation for your cybercompany and posts, Dan.

    I hope everything gets better... always keep going and never give up...

    Dan,

    I'm so sorry to hear of your troubles. I was told about the Frequency Specific Microcurrent. It wasn't by you, was it? I'm drawing a blank at the moment.

    But you might consider trying it. It works really well with things like that. Hasn't done much for my lymphedema, but it works better for muscles, nerves and ligaments.

    Might be worth looking into. Great for pain management too.

    You will be missed.

    Create a miracle for yourself and get better, then come back and tell us of your amazing recovery.

    High millage syndrome indeed! You've asked a lot of your body for a long time.

    Nothin wrong with Chess......but check out "Go", if you can find someone to play.
    Or: There's always online poker. I hear it's a fine addiction to give up by not taking it up....


    Be well man.

    Dan,

    I sincerely wish you the best. But stay in touch when you can. You've given me a lot to think about at times. Thanks for asking questions and forcing me to look all that much closer at what I do to find answeres for you. I encourage you to keep your mental workouts as rigorous as they ever were.

    Deep respects,

    It was probably Richard Finn. He turned me on to it as well, and it does work. In fact, I'm in the middle of a course of FSM and accupuncture right now. I was lucky to find a naturpathic clinic in Wenatchee that does these and much more. It is Alpine Valley Wellness Clinic, and I highly recomend them.

    Speaking of Wenatchee, I went over to Ki Fighting Concepts today (Sifu Joseph Simonets' school) and his number two, Addy Hernandez, teaches a Tai Chi and Yoga class. I'm gouing to check it out, so who knows- I might find something there worth the travel. Only problem is that those guys are also seriouse martial artists, and I don't know if I can stand doing old-slow-cripple-crap martial arts in that environment. Nothing against Tai Chi, I think it's awesome. I just have a seriouse external personality!!!

    Dan-

    I'd say GO FOR IT.
    It's not 'Cripple Crap', I think there's some very real 'secrets' in the Taijichaun systems! If anyone can ferret it out, it's YOU.

    As for not being able to "throw down" with the young'ns.......
    DON-Worry bout it!!! MAN.....You've done EXACTLY that for DECADES now! I know it's what you know and what you've been VERY good at, but that's just it......you've been there and done that.
    Time to move forward to gain other things than being able to whoop ass and take names. Taiji + Yoga = a VERY good combo in my estimation!!

    Please: keep us updated on how things are going for you, and never forget that you've got FAMILY here!!

    Your Brother

    Thanks, and I agree- just that purely slow and easy will be a big adjustment. But I'm looking for some specific things in a class/school. Many are the same as I was trying to find in Kenpo; structure, muscular presentation, and a mental component. In addition, I need to develope some good meditative and chi kung skills. And, of course, there are the health bennifits, which I think require at least a good understanding of the martial components.

    Good advice, and that is a very important component for me in any study. I always thought the mental was an important ballancing factor for the physical. Now, my problem is to try to ballance without the physical.

    North central Washington state, north of Moses Lake- Ephrata. Part of my problem finding good martial arts schools, I'm a rural type. Thanks for asking.

    There is another, very inexpensive thing you can do that might help, and has helped others.

    It's an Edgar Cayce remedy, which normally takes awhile before you notice any improvement.

    It's a nightly peanut oil massage to that entire neck area.

    And it should be done for a minimum of 10 minutes.

    It is written up in the Edgar Cayce Remedies by Dr. W. McGarey for more details on it, or go to yahoo and find one of their many free groups, that will lead you to more information.

    And, seemingly, it's been known to heal demaged nerves in the neck.
