Messing around playing robots vs aliens of some sort today. One of my kids does a great roll back and later a pi quan like move. I’m sure I didn’t formally show him those, except maybe part of pi quan once a long, long time ago. Dang. My 4 year old tried to throw me, going under my arm twisting it and pulling me down. Of course he had to try “whole body power” very naturally since he weighs so little. Sheesh. Where did they get that? As long as it’s just playing around, they pick up a lot. Amazing. The trick to getting to them to do something well is letting them learn whatever they want and not interfering or steering them to something I happen to like. Very hard trick, that.
