    Light (lite?) Body

    What does it mean (in a Shaolin context) to describe someone as a "light body?"

    in shaolin and any context for chinese martial arts it is referring to acrobatics, agility etc its basically like parkour type of skills applied to combat instead of random gymnastic moves off buildings just to show off.

    That makes sense in the context I was told it.

    What's Parkour skills? I am unfamiliar.

    A "light body" has a totally different meaning in Thailand.

    More along the lines of men wearing women's clothing.

    Maestro can explain.

    Now I am "confused" because that makes sense in the context I was told it too.

    Please Maestro explain.

    Reminds me of old Office episode:
    "The Office: Gossip (#6.1)" (2009)
    Andy Bernard: Michael, am I gay?
    Andy Bernard: For the record, I prefer women. But off the record, I'm kinda confused.
