預設 Ski video by Blake

I tried really hard to post this on a new thread, but I can't tell what any buttons say on this
thing, so... I hope this is alright. These are three new videos and two are informational so
it's kind of relevant.

This first one we feel is the best we've ever made. It's a compilation with music of mainly
2 seasons, including this season with groomed skiing which I usually don't include, or put
much effort into, in our videos. For anyone who's interested in the commentary videos
below, I hope that you'll start with this one. This may not play in every European country
because of copyright so anyone who can't see it could click our 2 newest seasonal videos
and see the same shots if they want to. This is our best though. I'm a huge Dio fan.

This one is a commentary showing multiple ways of skiing moguls with demonstrations.
It shows the way that I look at mogul skiing and shows how different styles are all related.
I say "this is really all just mogul skiing" and at the end I wrote "because of "styles" people
are not united". I am trying to show the connectedness of all these things, so if this turns
into an argument about what style is best, you have truly missed the whole point. If you
look at mogul skiing differently, that's fine, but I hope if anyone has a disagrees with
this, that they have demonstrations of all of these things that are better than mine. The
point is that all styles are connected and so arguing between styles is pointless and people
should be united. I only say that the Olympic way is a good way, that's all I say, and actually
I don't even say that.

This one shows the way that I approach all mountain skiing. This is a little less simple to
understand than the last one. Again, just my way, not necessarily the best or the right
way. I am not trying to sound like I'm saying it's necessarily the best, even if I think it
is. However, if I avoided opinions all together in these things, I'd have nothing to say. I
say at the end "when your way of skiing meets your expectations, then it is the right
technique for you". This has a theme of 'no right and wrong, what works for you is what's
right for you'... especially towards the end. The PSIA doesn't look the same as the CSIA or
the Swiss Ski School, so who is right? Everyone and no one. A good audience that I
envision for this one would be people who want to get better but don't take many lessons.
Most people in the lift lines in Colorado I believe fall into this category, or if not, think of
weekend, college warriors for example, they want to ski their best like anyone else but
probably don't buy lessons. Anyone who understands this and agrees is the audience.
That won't be everyone and that's fine.

This may come as a surprise to you, but I don't tend to do well in online arguments...
Just Kidding! That shouldn't surprise anyone at this point LOL

Any arguing about this contradicts some of the points of these videos.

I know that there are different languages here. The mogul commentary is pretty
understandable just by watching it. The second one unfortunately may be really hard for
people to understand. Maybe someone can translate some, but honestly, some of that
stuff isn't even easy to say in English.

These three I am linking to mainly just for if people can't see the first one due to a copyright
issue like I said. These are our three seasonal videos. The shots in that first video are all
with a bunch more. I would quit embedding these things because I don't want to take up
too much space, but again I can't figure out the buttons here because it's not in English. Sorry.

The first one here is the one that the groomed shots in the first video came from. This has
more




The lower two have been redone slightly to include less bad snow because I've come to
realize that many people don't know what snow they're looking at.

I had to make an adjustment to one of those because embedding was disabled. They should start working again 30 minutes from now.

Welcome back, Blake, and thanks for such high quality videos and the excellent expose on mogul and all-mountain skiing techniques, they really brighten our humble small forum.

Indeed, the video is finely made, and skiing is excellence and exciting to watch, thanks for the great efforts to make it happens.

Totally agree, funny thing is that I don't even think/see your diffent demos as different "styles," but one "mogul skiing"; as you can engage the hills and moguls to do whatever you've intended to do, and you do it much better than I, so I won't bore you with mine. I used to ski nothing but moguls all day in my younger days, but nowadays, I'm more in the trees and on the trails. I'm also using "one" turning style, with variations, to ski all terrain. The turn is based on Wedeln, a short turn without the traverse phase, add a little "traverse" to become a "short turn," and add more traverse becomes a "long turn," and the "turn"/changing direction can be initiated by "thinking," so it is "turn on demand,"

So, yes, you are right; at higher levels, all turns are connected, and down below I'll show how all styles are connected.

Yes, I do share the same view too, [my view] "back to nature," and "nature" is defined as "not to articulate your actions [so that the actions flow naturally]," just as what you mentioned in the video, "not to thinking about your [skiing...]" as we are not thinking about it, there's no "different" style but "one" skiing. As I've said, at the highest level, all skiing [styles] merge into a simplest form, the "nature" original. When "back to nature," all different styles are disappeared.

This guy is an ex PSIA clinician, and he has never learned Taichi,

Really interesting post IS.

I finally got a chance to look at everything you posted thoroughly.

If I'm not mistaken, I have mentioned to you before that I do a lot of qi gong.

You may be interested to hear a little bit about my story with qi. For me, I also think that qi
and skiing have connected in my life.

When I was about 19, I was doing a lot of summer training for skiing. I would hacky sack for
about a hour a day developing my focus and coordination. I would also balance sideways on
a pipe that was about the width of my thumb. I would do this repeatedly. These two
activities developed my coordination and focus greatly. I also was doing a few stretches for
about 20 minutes each. They were three stretches and two of them were standing stretches.
I was just trying to increase flexibility. I had no knowledge of tai chi or qi gong or anything
else. Later, I have realized that my balancing on the pipe and my standing stretches may
have had a similar effect to static standing postures used in standing meditation.

I don't know why really..... but around this time that I was doing these things I began
feeling massive amounts of energy running through my body. Specifically, I began being
woken up by large currents of energy running through my legs. I had heard of "internal
martial artists" (tai chi practitioners etc), but I knew nothing of the practice. I went and
bought a book and began doing some standing meditation.

Within about two weeks of doing these qi gong postures, the energy would come on again
and again, usually in the morning when I would be waking up. My mind would be fully
awake, and fully conscious but it would happen when I was laying on my back in bed. I
would feel infinite amounts of energy going through me and I would move that energy to a
hand or something and it would feel as if I could make my hand explode. I began to
experience out of body experiences from this state. The way I experienced it is very
consistent with what is described in a book called "Journeys out of the body" by Robert A
Monroe. Or in Taoism, it was my 'shen' that was led to separate from my physical body.
I may or may not have been experiencing some from of Kundalini. I am not clear on that.
It may have been qi, but it seemed almost entirely too massive.

Everything that I have experienced, I have been able to read about later (after I experience
it) in Taoist books.

The way that I got into qi gong reminds me of what the Shaolin Monks do with martial arts
and enlightenment. They practice martial arts and achieve a level of mastery of their
physical bodies and mind that helps them to achieve enlightenment. As they say in Taoist
practices: the mind, body and soul are all one and the same. What's good for one of the
three is good for the other two etc.. What's good for the body and mind, is therefore good
for the soul. If the Shaolin Monks can achieve enlightenment through the help of martial arts
mastery, then why should skiing be any different? It seems like it could be a substitute for
martial arts to me.

I believe that I am a better skier today because of my qi gong practice.

Here is an interesting video that we can relate to the natural skiing video...

What you see here is that each ski school has their own way of skiing. If you think about
how these styles developed throughout the years that these ski schools have been in
existence, a lot of the technique probably came from someone simply feeling what seemed
right to them and then passing it on to the other skiers in the group. Every country looks
different. The French, for example, look nothing like the other countries. I believe that this
is because for the people in France that were integral in developing this style, this way
was right for them. The Koreans look quite a bit different than anyone else, and also may
be likely to have unique body shapes compared to the Europeans, again, for the guys over
there that put the most thought into their technique, this way was right for them. While
the people who join later and master these predefined, specific techniques may not be
skiing naturally the guys who developed these ways, I believe were skiing naturally, doing
what felt right to them. The differences between countries shows a wide range of
movement and positioning patterns that could be right for any person.

Glad to hear that you have some practice on Qi, I'm pretty sure that you have "some" experience in Qi, even though you may not know how to describe it. Although the concept of Qi is uniquely Chinese, but the phenomenon are universal, it "naturally" happens in every living being.

The concept of Qi is written in the Chinese character "氣," pronounces Qi. The character is composed of two parts: the top part symbolizes "air," and the bottom part is "rice," which is the main stable food for Chinese people. According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) explanation: the condensed(肅降)of some "air" properties and vaporized/digested(昇化)food mixed together to generate the "energy" for life. And it moves through the body to generate the body movements. And that is quite a mouth full of mystery, how can it reconcile with the modern Physics/science?

In the eyes of physics, our human body is nothing more than a sophisticated "closed hydraulic system"/machine which is operated under "hydraulic principles," and is powered by "pressure." Qi, under these contents, is pressure. It is the pressure that moves the muscles to generate "force." So yes, you would have had Qi. The warmth of your hands indicate that your excises have enhanced your blood/body fluids' circulation.

The Qi moves through our body is like water flows through a water hose, and the water is most powerful when the hose is not kinked. Originally, Qi/pressure can only expand and contract on a straight line; however, by bending/flexing and straightening the body joints, which act like pressure valves, where bending/flexing a joint "closes" and straightening a joint "opens" the flow, we can regulate Qi's strengths and change its directions to generate and to deliver forces most efficiently to fit for our purposes. And Qi-gong is a practice that learns such properties of Qi, and nurtures, cultivates, and effectively utilizes this energy to perform the movements to meet our tasks of living. And that's Qi-gong in a nutshell.

Here's a routine of my "Shen style Qi Gong," which would systematically and effectively exercise all our body joints and muscles as well as balancing, and if you turn up the audio volume, you can also "hear" how I use breathing to coordinate all my movements.

I really enjoyed your videos!
Thanks for the compliments. I call my skiing "line-skiing," which is to ski a "line" instead of just making turns, which is like driving on a mountain road, where the road turns, and the car turns little. However, there's no such a road on the skiing hills, the skier must find and build his or her own road, i.e. "line"; with all mountain terrain changes and the grades of the slopes vary greatly, that is not an easy task to do it on the flight. The solutions? I use "equal gradient" as a reference. Skiing on an "equal gradient," the skier travels at "same"/constant speed; as the speed is known, the skiing is much easy to control and maneuver. The line of the equal gradient reflects the gravity (or more precisely, the reaction force of the gravity,) as a same/constant pressure on the feet/skis. The pressure on the feet increases indicates the skis are climbing or/and slowing down, and the reverse, the pressure on the feet decreases indicates the skis are going downhill and speeding up. By adjusting the pressure to maintain a desired "constant pressure," one skis down the hill like a river meanders through a plain, and that's a nutshell of "line-skiing."

Taichi Skiing/Flatboarding: Maggie's Canyon, the gully, Heavenly - YouTube



As we seek the gravity internally, the skiing becomes more philosophical than physical, and by referencing to "equal pressure" on the feet/skis, the body naturally coordinate its movements and balances such external pressure, the body disappeared and the skiing has returned to nature—"natural skiing."

Thanks for such a delicious post.

'later, :)

Ps. Me, too, have had the "out of body" experience, maybe tell you next time, if you're interested.
