Believe it or not some of that bull is true
Some of the stuff that you read is true. As far as the caves go I do believe thats a load and a half. I have studied Chi Tao for a while and as far as animal spirit goes it's the spirit of the animal in the wild, not some dead putrifying carcass come back to help. Although the way it's phrased some of it is true, it's just the nuts that try to make it sound dangerous that are full of it.

CHICAGO KARATE SCANDALIZED BY INTER-SCHOOL RIVALRIES
CHICAGO, Illinois - In what was described as a "business feud" between two rival martial arts schools, The Black Cobra Hall of Kung Fu Kempo and The House of Dante, one man was stabbed to death and another suffered severe eye injuries.
Instructors and students at the Black Cobra Hall told police they were invaded by six men, led by John Keehan, who is also known as "Count Dante. " Just prior to the incident, a phone call was received at the Black Cobra Hall in which the callers allegedly stated, "A bunch of guys are on their way to bust your joint up."
After hearing a knock at the door, a student opened it and Keehan entered with his men, produced a deputy sheriff's badge and was said to have stated, "We're from the sheriffs police. You're all under arrest."
Jose Gonzales, an instructor at the Black Cobra Hall which is owned by Russell Berkman, had been standing near the door when the men entered. He said that it was Keehan who hit him "with something" that very nearly took out his right eye. Gonzales underwent surgery at Belmont Community Hospital for a laceration of his right eye. His condition is described as "fair."
Jerome Greenwald, the man charged with the murder of James R. Koncevic, told police that the invaders carried their own weapons. He was quoted by police as saying that Koncevic was punching him during the free-for-all that ensued. Greenwald said he grabbed a knife (one of the several weapons which lined the wall of the school) and plunged it into Koncevic's abdomen.
As soon as the melee started, someone had called the police and they arrived on the scene to find Koncevic lying dead in a doorway and captured the invaders as they were running away.
Jerome M. Greenwald has been charged with murder and was granted bond of $2,500 by judge John F. Hechinger. Greenwald was released on payment of $250, or 10 percent of the total bond. judge Hechinger said he ordered the low bond because circumstances indicated that Greenwald probably acted in self-defense.
Bond was set at $15,000 for John Keehan who was charged with aggravated battery, impersonating a police officer and criminal damage to property. Keehan, who said he had recently changed his name legally to Count Dante, had previously been placed on a two year probation in 1965 after he was convicted of the attempted arson of another karate school, the Chicago Judo and Karate Center, Inc.
Also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct were Russell Berkman, Patrick Garrison and Gary Bennett.
