tangental note (about thinking of the children) i met my cousin's 6 year old son who is studying wing chun, and he told me the origin story about the nun teaching the young girl to fight, to which i replied "yeah it's a nice story and good marketing, but i don't think it's true." he got pretty pissed off at me, good thing for me that stuff he's training doesn't make him dangerous.
that's the kind of awareness spreading that kung fu needs, spreading awareness of what's bullshit, and what's real. tbh, roy being cryptic about how his kung fu helps him, and doing demos in dress uniform isn't going to help at all, and will probably encourage more youth into silk pajama bullshit."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art. You don't truly love your children unless you allow them to get punched in the face." - chi-conspiricy
"When I was a little boy, I had a sailor suit, but it didn't mean I was in the Navy." - Mtripp on the subject of a 5 year old karate black belt
"Without actual qualifications to be a Zen teacher, your instructor is just another roundeye raping Asian culture for a buck." - Errant108
"Seriously, who gives a **** what you or Errant think? You're Asian males, everyone just ignores you, unless you're in a krotty movie." - new2bjj

The flowery-ness of Roy's pajamas is finely balanced by the ferocity of his knockouts.
