I doubt it. He probably had to pass a nicely choreographed routine to get his rank in Wushu. It is a figure sport, after all."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

So, your "wushi" is really MMA. Ok. I'm still not impressed. Call it MMA if you're doing MMA."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

My Kajukenbo green belt test was twice as long and hard as my Kyokushin bb test. KK had five kata, Kajukenbo fifteen. Both were free. I invited local bbs to spar for the Kyokushin test and a Kajukenbo bb opened up my cheek with a lead left. No blood was shed for the green belt test.
So Meex, you working out with the Kajukenbo guys now? As they used to tell me when I worked for E K Fernandez's carnival, "No shame (haole boy, for you that term wouldn't exacly apply!) geeve 'em.""Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez

Actually most of what I did was wushu. I doubt very many MMA guys performed compulsory NanChuan. THe school is a lot more MMA now.

And TBK don't get all upset just because an art does not fit into whatever little niche you feel that it should. Just like there are good TKD, Karate, and JFGF schools there are good TCMA and WuShu Schools.
