    I looked up Dale Dugas...his deal in Boston seems to be pretty legitimate. Essentially, here are my reasons for liking Baguazhang.

    Decent amount of striking.
    Decent amount of grappling/throwing
    A lot of emphasis on fluidity of movement, and adaptation, with a style that's essentially based around adaptation. I know if you can't adapt in any style you'll fail, but I particularly like how Baguazhang is laid out.

    I'm just letting you know because your post doesn't read that way to me.

    I have been training under Dr. John Painter since 1997.

    The system is principle based and works. For all the haters, I am available to show ANYONE how this system works.

    Let me know how I can be of service.

    Fair enough, its always hard to tell from a website, and he may well be an amazing instructor.

    Xarmydis: I guess the move would be to go and do a trial class.

    Sounds like a plan. Let everyone know how it turns out.

    I think Imma do a trial class at each place. I like the fact that Dale has been confirmed as legit (and shown up himself! I appreciate it!!), which credits Dr. Painter's facilities, of which I will definitely check out soon.

    And Dale, just a personal request, since you said you can show anyone how the system works, could you possibly make a short video of yourself? There isn't much in the way of Media of Baguazhang these days, and I am intrigued to see more of what it's all about. =)

    Open invitations to any and all who want to come see how we deal with self defense.

    I have not--which somewhat worries me. I won't know for sure if what I'm getting into from the start is fake or just useless. Again, I like the fact that Dale can/has vouched for Painter, but I'm not so sure about this other place.
