    Action speaks louder than words.

    The best way is definitely through the sports MMA, sadly kung fu have not been that effective compare to BJJ.

    Cung Lee disagrees with you. He also has had a successful MMA career. Granted, he got his ground game from wrestling, but on the flip side BJJ has no standup game worth mentioning.

    You can learn effective fighting skills in a multitude of martial arts, no matter where they originated. The single most important factor in doing so is finding a school that spars at least at semi-contact levels. In other words, at a higher level than point fighting.

    Learning from a school that successfully competes in Shuai Jiao or Sanda would further ensure transfer of effective martial skill.

    Can I ask a question to clarify the situation? Does he also believe rock beats both paper and scissors?

    I looked at the website, seems like the head instructor goes WAY back.
    Hmm...Wing Chun and Hung Ga.

    I can help check out the lineage of the latter. I'll get back to you.

    You can tell him BJJ is kung fu. Everything is kung fu in a sense. Kung Fu is just a term used to define any study that requires patience, energy and time to complete. I heard somewhere that it simply means 'well done' in Chinese, but I can't find any reference to back that up.

    So you can have good kung fu in ballet. Or good kung fu in cooking. Just don't tell any BJJ guys that BJJ is kung fu :)

    Or are we talking about a particular style of Chinese Martial Arts?

    Well as it turns out Nam Siu Lum Kung Fu Academy on Long Island and Sifu Michael Manganiello is the real gongfu; I found a strong endorsement on the kungfumagazine.com forums by none other than Bullshido's own nysanda/lkfmdc.

    I"ve been in the MO LUM a LONG TIME and I know Sifu Manganiello. I know he has been inside for a LONG TIME and has studied with a lot of top teachers.
    As if that endorsement isn't enough, I traced Sifu Michael Manganiello's Hung Ga (at least some of it) to Yee Chi Wai, my own sigung. So while I can't speak to the Wing Chun, his Hung Ga is probably quite legit and worth checking in to.

    And, if you ever want to travel to NJ for some Hung ga sparring, PM me.

    Stop. He is asking a legit question in terms of what American people think of kung fu.
