    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic here, but White Crane also has the concepts of center line, trapping, and sticky hands.

    Depends on what level of competition they'd reached. I would certainly not bet on Boztepe against somebody like Chuck Lidell or Coture.

    Boztepe is the same guy that, in his prime, had a hard time putting the kaibosh on Wliiam Cheung right?

    But William Cheung was a master! Of course EB had difficulty beating up an old man on the ground. That and the lack of oil down his pants...

    Emin Boztepe once said that the UFC was staged.



    Emin Boztepe
    5th level Practician EWTO / IWTMAA
    Headman of the AWTO (American WingTsun Organization)


    "After having watched your "Ultimate Fighting Championships" held by the Gracie-Family, I cannot find them very "ultimate" but only amusing. These so-called "ultimate fights' may impress laymen or beginners, but in fact they are no more real than the professional Wrestling shows on TV. "
    Emin Boztepe built most of his marketing around the dubious concept of "anti-grappling", which taught people how to avoid grappling by using... grappling.

    Emin Boztepe refused to accept a challenge from the Gracies to fight in the UFC.

    Until things like this are cleared up, he should stay out of the business of teaching "MMA". It just makes him look like a hypocrite.

    The reason behind this is that in US the WT business is too small and he wants to expand in new "markets".

    Personally the news do not affect me as I will still be doing WT here (I forecast a break with EBMAS from my association of instructors); I have been doing MMA in the past in fact and I changed because I wanted to do something different, so I think I will stick with them.

    I am just curious as what kind of approach he will be taking in training, maybe more emphasis in physical training (which at the moment is zero in classes, you've got to do it by yourself), and at the end he will intorduce some kind of wrestling (turkish?)

    Your thoughts?

    Some of you guys seem to have an obsession with this oil / Botzepe thing... I bet you have "oily" dreams about it...

    No. Boztepe is the guy who took Cheung to the ground in a few seconds and pounded him. I think beating up an old guy like Cheung showed no class, regardless of what Cheung said about him, but Boztepe hardly had a difficult time doing it.
