    If you can't deal with conflict this is not the website for you. No, we can't have nice things.

    haha, conflict is cool as long as we're at least making progress. although thats his fault for being obtuse, not yours.

    Anyway the Shaolin episode was honestly more disappointing than the wudang one. didnt really get to see much emphasis on traditional training, just some performance wushu and then sanda(which is cool, but id have liked to see something else)

    Season 2 is much better, even without any translations/subs


    EDIT: in terms of actual fighting ability the best guys seem to be the shuai jiao, baji, and Hung gar guys. Still need to watch the white crane ep tho.

    So you agreed with me. watching the shaoling, wudang episodes were pretty dissapointing.

    White crane episode was okay. It was more about tracing the root of karate more than anything.

    The Wing Chun episode was pretty good. The instructor that they found was a champion in HongKong and he seemed like someone who knows what he was doing.

    Kinda reinforces the idea that "shaolin martial arts" are not really a school descended from the temple at all really.

    For season 3 they've left China and gone off to challenge the world. Here's the systema episode, featuring a judo blackbelt host and a final fight against samboists instead of systema... dores. Because (predictably) systemadores can't fight for themselves.

    I've been watching this show and really enjoying it.
    Despiste some misticism bullshit here and then its refreshing to see them stressing the importance of free sparring and aliveness in almost every ep i've seen so far (though not as much as in modern sport martial arts).

    My favourites so far have been Baji, Taiji, Xing Yi and Mongolian Asswhooping. The Mantis and Hung Gar ones were also great.
    In the other hand the Hudang and particulary the Shaolin (boooooring) confirmed that both trademarks are just for fooling tourists unless you're going there for modern Sanda or performanse wushu, and for that there's probably much better and cheaper places.
