First, he had performed many promotional feats of Chi/Qi/Ki. He told me how he had “propped”, or “staged” those demonstrations. They were false, like a magic show of illusion. After finding out these “secrets”, I and some friends that were amateur magicians, and belonging to a “Magicians Guild”, had reproduced easily. My belief in Chi/Qi/Ki, was shattered and I have become skeptical with anyone discussing it nowadays.
Second, he had told me truths about Tae Kwon Do development. Which later, I have come to find out that he was finally, speaking the truth. Apart from him speaking exaggerations, somewhat not whole truth, although not lies, in the beginning years and my beginning training.
Now it seems the underlying issue you have is still with the Shaolin. You seem to have a hard-on to discredit anyone who uses the term Shaolin. So since you didn't answer my question in the other forum I will ask it here. What proof do you have to discredit those who claim the heritage? I am not saying you are wrong, but I am saying that in order for you to be a bit more credible on this site, proof is always needed. Thanks. BTW...have written for Black Belt magazine back in 60's or 70's? (Not being a smart ass but your postings remind me of someone else I knew from other forums).
