To be straight up, I'm not going to spend a great deal of time writing here to justify myself to you. Hell man, I don't even know you! So to make "assumptions' about you based on what is written on the supposed last vestige of truth & honour - the "Internet" would simply be wrong.
Mate, believe what you want to believe .... You will anyhow regardless of what I share with you. Your mind is already made up. Your just writing to me to in an attempt to draw forth further information in your personal campaign, that's cool .... But mate, I'm just not interested.
Okay so lets cut to the chase shall we .......
1/. James Freeman ....... Umm err ........ Okay so you know him and communicate with him. Great? What in the blue hell does that have to do with me? No really, I was actually put in contact with Master Ruan Dong via a very different route via one of his friends who gained him publicity in an American based magazine that was in 2000. It was then that Master Ruan Dong agreed to be the official patron of my school ... Wow, big deal! That very same year one of Master Dong's direct students who was living in New Zealand contacted me and we shared views, info as people so often do. He also acted as a means of helping me to communicate with Master Dong which I did up to his sad passing. Cool, no problems there. James, well James contacted me whilst he was in China. We communicated, shared info and that was that. It was in fact James who arranged for Master Dong to become a "Technical Advisor" to myself/school. James is a good guy ... End of story!
2/. Regarding Master Ruan Dong ....... We communicated quite heavily for the period 2000 through to 2010. I gained a great deal of guidance from him. He wrote through our mutual friend whose name does not concern you and I have this on file so it can be verified: “I am happy to be your Master and Advisor and accepting you into my school. We are delighted to develop the Crane Style Boxing with you anytime. Do what you think the best for White Crane and Calling Crane Style Boxings. Just to let you know I am pleased to have a friend like you, and will do our best to help you develop Crane style Boxing in Australia. I agree to be the consultant of your research institute, and happy to bring you into my school. I will do my best to help you in promoting Crane Style Boxing in Australia”
