Fat people disgust me in every way imaginable. I was at Freindly's with my girl tonight and saw a bunch of fat fuckers. I felt sorry for the pavement they were killing and the people who had to see them. .

It is funny to hear mention of Count Dante again. I remember seeing his picture and send-away membership in comic books when i was a child.As for the Green Dragon society, never heard of them. Sounds like alot of hot air, but you never know until you meet the guys ...I suppose.

"The various enmities culminated in the Dojo War incident of 1970 where Dante and some of his students went to a rival dojo of the Green Dragon Society's Black Cobra Hall. According to press coverage, upon entering the school, they claimed to be police officers and attacked the rival dojo's students. The brief battle resulted in the death of one of Dante's friends and fellow sensei, Jim Koncevic. As a result of this incident, Dante became much more subdued in his activities."
There are a couple of guys in Chicago trying to pull money together for a documentary on Keehan.

count dante was around when l was teaching in the early 60s . he was a hairdresser who claimed to be the worlds most dangerous man . l was in the us when he apparently went to a chinese school with some students and walked in and challenged them . it went outside when one of dantes students pulled a gun and got himself killed . as to green dragon there was one around years ago that sold cources on vcr tapes and sets from various styles in black belt and other mags. they claimed they had one of ours and a student of mine bought it and it was not even close. maybe they have just changed their mo.

---There are a LOT of "Green Dragon Studios" videos on eBay, not sure if they are the same outfit. Maybe-- the ones being sold are probably all bootlegs and copies of older tapes. They seem to have vids on just about every style of Gungfu/CMA ever heard of, and many NOT heard of.
I ended up with one or two [note to self: don't drink and eBay], some sort of two-person drills, haven't looked at it for years-- older, bodybuilder-looking guy and a younger woman who's also pretty buff, bashing their forearms together. Background is classic old CMA Kwoon with polearms & etc. Could possibly be 10-20+ years old.
I'll see if oldtyger or someone around here can upload some clips-- that is, if I have everyone's solemn word the won't misuse the d34dl3y skilz . . .

the tape that my student bought was of supposedly sup ji from pak mei. it looked as if someone had seen it then made it up as close as they could come . probably where someof the people claiming pak mei got theres from l suppose. lt would beinteresting to see . l probably assume that they are from the green dragon sold years ago.

Yeah the Green Dragon Team was this guy ( cant remember the name) he had at one point trained with Gene Chiccoine and went around bootlegging all the forms, techniques`and whatnot. Last I saw he was combing weight training with chi-kung and claiming impressive gains in strenghth. I also recall a lengthy list of obscure (fictitous?) videos, like white eyebrow old monkey fist form 2.Also I believe he was`selling T3H R34L iron palm linament which pissed GM Chiccoine off to no end as the formula is super top secret.
Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious
I for one welcome our new Ninja overlords.
I figure fighting a group of chunners would be like water torture, its not the force as such, just the constant trickle of chain punches wearing down your sanity. -The Juggernoob
