I have been studying Martial Arts all my life, my father was an Army Ranger, he trained first in judo before the army and then went all over the world and trained with different special forces from different countries. When i was growing up we would "play spar" he would show me moves such as chokes, strikes etc. I had such an open mind about anything martial arts, then when i became i teenager i ran the streets getting into to fights and tried those things dad taught me, did good most of the time. I took Tae Kwoon Do at U of L that was good for awhile, then i started taking Shaolin Do it was something so different to me. I was lucky to have one of the best teachers in Shaolin Do, been under his teaching for over 20 years now. I have seen really bad students and really good students come through our school. All you people say Shaolin Do is fake, we have been getting that since Sin The' came over here to go to school at UK. We still get challenged but nobody seems to come to our school to follow thru on it. You know grandmaster Sin used to compete with people like Bill "superfoot" and they questioned him back then after he would win. Please be open minded, every Martial Art is a good thing.
