Armour




 

War of the Worlds


I have the highest understanding of armour in history.

You don't believe me?

Then let us begin.

I often break armour down into two broad classifications. What I call Yin Armour and Yang Armour.

Let us begin with that as a starting point.

Ultimately it's all about people. People are what make the world go round.

Let us now discuss two different approaches in Martial Arts. The approach of Hard Martial Arts and of Soft Martial Arts.

Hard & Soft Martial Arts: Hard Martial Arts - Part I


Soft Martial Arts however, are actually faster and harder. To master these styles one must master stillness of mind and the proper harnessing of chi.

Hard & Soft Martial Arts: Soft Martial Arts - Part I


The term "soft" can be misleading in soft martial arts. The softness refers to the chi aspect. But when yin is built up, which can happen very quickly, and then released, it can be released as explosive yang. The power is built in yin, but released in yang.

Yin Armour and Yang Armour both have their strengths. But the real strength is in the balance of the two.

Let us illustrate further by looking another example of the principle of yin armour in action. Underground bases are going to be huge for us in Golden Age, so a lot of my tunnelling, construction and defensive work has been driven by these bases. Protecting these bases from seismic activity is ultimately what got me started looking at this problem of earthquakes.

It is another application of yin armour in action.
