    This is the problem with kung fuers. They see "their" respective arts where many times they don't exist. When they do exist it is blown way out of proportion. Go read many of Omega's replies on kung fu and MMA. You aren't the only one to do it I have done it as well.

    Also, go read Ming's recent epiphany regarding Hung Ga and Judo. It is very telling and you'll understand why many of us, who do or did CMA, are very harsh in our critiques.

    Let me rephrase then I didn't mean to imply I see Hung ga in every single technique Omega performed, but I can catch glimpses of hung ga because they are there after all. It's like finding Waldo.

    If this is the post you're referring to, I was in total agreement (next post) with that. Ming wished that he'd done Judo before Hung ga because he felt Judo taught basic skills that most CMAers aren't taught when they are sent out into the world with the d34dly.

    personally, i wish i had done judo before hung ga, but now that i am in judo i feel that i understand hung ga much more.
    I really liked his use of the term "delivery system" and I guess that's where I understood his point best. It's a feeling he got from Judo, like a CMA bullshit detector. It's definitely shown me value as well.

    And well...we both love Hung ga anyway.
