    Yee Chuan Tao

    Hi all, noob here...
    Anyone vere heard of Mike Vendrell and his system of Yee Chuan Tao? Not to mention the other 22 martial arts he's claimed to have mastered.
    Here's the link:

    http://www.unitedmartialartists.org/vendrell/

    This guy sounds like a total fraud to me.

    You're right, I'm just curious whether anyone knows anything about him or not. His bio on his website says he knows like 20 different martial arts, and that he's the only living master of Yee Chuan Tao...a made up CMA name if I've ever heard one.

    Nope.
    My curiousity was piqued after discussing CMA with one of his students on another forum. The student seemed mind- numbingly brainwashed into believing that this fellow was a master of 23 different martial arts, and even claimed that he was certified to teach them all, but couldn't list them. So I was hoping to find out if anyone had any experience dealing with him to get a non-biased opinion of his instruction and ability. As a CMA person myself, I'm disgusted by frauds and forms teachers who can't fight, and rip people off claiming to teach obscure systems with phoney backgrounds.

    Hey, he has a pic of himself with Buddy Ebson in a kung fu suit in his gallery. That was rather surprising to see.

    he doesn't use contracts, which is at least one good thing in his favour
