You surely know the sign for Yin and Yang, but what is behind it?
Yin means: dark, feminine, cold, wet, passive, night, north, water, earth, moon.
Yang means: light, male, warm, dry, active, day, south, fire, sky, sun.
With the yin-yang doctrine, the opposing aspects of every phenomenon can be grasped. Yin and Yang therefore fight and limit each other mutually. If one side has the preponderance, there is a deficiency on the other side. If one side becomes weak, the other side becomes too strong.
It follows that the two opposites, yin and yang, never face each other in the body without interaction and conflict. The two sides fight and displace each other.
In China, children as young as five get into kung fu training. It usually takes several decades to achieve mastery in a martial art. The learning process follows roughly the following pattern in most styles, although the individual stages can follow one another at very different rates from style to style. Typically, this begins with an unarmed form and progresses to weapon forms as the student becomes more advanced. In addition to solo forms, which are practiced by one student alone, there are also partner forms, in which rehearsed fight choreographies are practiced by two or more fighters. Only later does the application of the techniques become the focus. These are typically partner forms or pre-determined attacks and reactions to them first. Free fighting is the final stage of learning.
Today I offer again some cosplay. With appearance of new hairstyles, I have created a simple look as a martial arts student.
Usual are light, not constricting pants and a jacket. Light canvas shoes are common. The color of the clothes can say something about the rank in some schools. Thus, the color black is usually reserved for the master, while the student wears white, and the master student wears red or yellow. I have taken up here Yin & Yang as an idea: white and black, good and evil... two sister fighting against each other, and somewhat twisted in my way :)
The armor parts at first sight are practically identical, but difference here is in pants choice, headpiece and back item. The colors are white and black, like Yin & Yang.
I hope the screens speak for themselves. Have fun with my martial arts picture story!
