Brian Kagen pick: “Mike Sigman Interviewed by Ian Young”

“Basically, at a workshop, I lay out how to do things. People can do them: there’s no escaping that they work. The logic is that either this is how it really works or I have stumbled on, by myself, a third system of movement that is just as effective: I’m not that much of a genius. So, I lay it out but I don’t say much to anybody personally. Some of them know it: they suddenly know that they’ve wasted time. I did: at a certain point I realized that as beautiful a form as I did, and as much as I was learning at push hands and so on, I wasn’t doing T’ai Chi. I had to stop and go back to absolute scratch.”

Brian Kagen is an avid web researcher with a particular interest in martial arts. His training background includes both judo and aikido. He has contributed hundreds of article links over the years for AJ readers.
