Do I need to make you guys remember that FSD is considered one of the best styles in Canada?
Wan't proofs? here:
I doubt that every aspect of every part of the fighting game is part of the collective whole that is FSD. You also say that the school includes all those principles. But how much does it cover of the actual philosophy and techniques of each principle? I could say that my new Tae Kwon Do system incorporates grappling and knifefighting because we have one punch that we put a knife in our hand and one throw.
btw, what does wan't abbreviate? Wan Not?
Credentials & Achievements
» "Community Service Award" from the Prime Minister of Canada in recognition of his valuable contributions to the community.
The Prime Minister of Canada does not do martial arts, and Martial Arts are not concerned with community service.

» In 1997, Master Patenaude was inducted into "The Masters, Pioneers & Legends Hall of Fame" in Norwalk Connecticut as founder of his martial arts system.
I think Frank Dux was inducted into a few Halls of Fame as well. btw, I would think he should be grandmaster of his own system by 1999.
» In 1994 and 1997 Master Patenaude's school in Ottawa was selected as one of the "Top 200 Schools in North America", with only four chosen throughout Canada.
Like it was said, the people who make the list usually don't do martial arts. lets make a bet that theres quite a few WTF/ITF/Tiger Schulmann's on that list eh?
» In 1992 he was honored as Kung-Fu instructor of the year and inducted into the "World Martial Arts Hall of Fame" in Akron Ohio.
Theres like 12 World Martial Arts Hall of Fames and for some reason none of the good schools are on them. Where's Fairtex? Paulson's CSW? DBMA? Wait, I only see Ashida Kim.
» A cover feature in the "Canadian Health and Lifestyles Magazine".
William Cheung is on like every cover of Black Belt Magazine.
» Sept. 2000 Grandmaster Sijo Patenaude was inducted into the prestigious World Head Council Hall of Fame in Orlando Florida as founder of his Patenaude's Kung-Fu System.
Creating things does not qualify as being a good martial artist.
