Temple Kung Fu returns! in Full force with threats
They have a new school. Its definitely a Shaolin style, there's no way to disagree with this:
Because if you do disagree, you WILL be sued. FEAR IT!
Here are some brand new, exciting posts from 2012! The school is back it appears, and they have strong ties to Simon himself:
Grandmaster Simon and Mrs. Simon are also well and we have had a number of excellent visits and BBQ’s with them
we will not be tolerating defamatory comments made any long. Yes, there is the Freedom of Speech as we live in a wonderful tolerant country that allows such privileges. I have personally called ‘Grasshopper’ from this forum to discuss the difference between comments made expressing Freedom of Speech and those that are Libel (written) or Slanderous (spoken). All those engaged in public discussions need to remember that they are responsible for the comments they make...as is the medium and agents there of who chooses to publicizes those said or written comments.
Dare to be a former student, trying to tell the truth about what happened to you? :
There's been past threads on this school before, including a court report on "Grand Master" Simon, where he arguably admits that its all made up:
Case law has now been established in Canada regarding such matters. If you think you are hiding behind ‘cover names’ or ‘sign on handles’, DaveS an Ontario Student from approximately ** to around **'...you’d be wrong. I respectfully have chosen to not post your full name as you may have noticed, but you are not that hard to identify should my representatives need to contact you. There are responsibilities to comments that over step established legal boundaries.

These new 2012 threatening posts are coming from a guy who is claiming that none of the bad things that happened to people has anything to do with Grand Master Simon or Temple Kung Fu, and that it was rogue students/teachers, and that the style is authentic.
Ex-students have tried to say otherwise, but are silenced through law suit threats. Their main forum was likely legally taken down:
But, from this thread here, you can see many schools of Temple Kung Fu actually practiced what we'd interpret as "scams": http://socialtech.ca/ade/index.php/t...ntario-closes/
My objective is not to bully or intimidate anyone here from expressing their view on techniques, training, experiences etc etc...but please don’t forget if anyone thinks that they will not be held accountable by me and the members of Moh Pai Defensive Arts for the comments publicly made that are below bar...you’d be wrong.... remember...you are not that hard to find and the days of that ‘Yellow Website’ are over!
Is this rehash of Temple Kung Fu full of Bullshido? Or were they good guys all along and their reputation ruined by a few untrained teachers who ran their own franchise of the Art?
I find this intriguing because he's blaming all the past masters, and has under Grand Master Simon's new wing, established a new school and is reclaiming the validity of their art.
