    O-Mei Kungfu

    Another great Kungfu-School :

    http://www.omeikungfu.com/html/trainingprograms.htm

    Kung Fu - Kung Fu Wu Su is a Chinese martial art which dates back over six thousand years. Written documentation on the exact history Kung-Fu Wu-Su has never been uncovered;

    Broken down, Kung means discipline; Fu means person; hence, a disciplined person. Wu means martial; Su means technique or skill; hence, a martial skill.

    Don't miss this:

    Historically, the O-Mei school was very selective in its admission methods. Because of this restrictive process, O-Mei Kung Fu is not as widely spread as its counterparts, Shaolin and Wu Dang. It is often viewed as a very secretive martial arts system.

    Omei Chinese martial arts actually did exist. No idea if this school has anything to do with them.

    I'd have to see the pricing to decide if this is a McDojo or not. For the most part, it seems to offer Traditional Chinese Martial Arts in a manner that is fairly honest. The only thing that makes me worry is this pic of their san so instructor. More likely than not he was just goofing around during sparring and it seemed to them like a good thing to put on a website. It doesn't really seem like Bullshido to me, minus the somewhat silly names for the San So/Shou/whatever techniques they had listed. Seems more likely to have valid training with McDojo pricing, but even the McDojo pricing isn't a certainty, since it isn't listed. All the traditional Chinese mysticism seems to be there, but it is probably pretty hard to find a TCMA school that lacks that, just like it is hard to find a BJJ school without at least one person that thinks Rickson is 400-0.

    Given that it's in California, be assured of high prices and contracts.

    There is a local O-Mei school in Orlando. Not bullshido, maybe McDojo.

    Our styles usually don't meet in the local tournaments......

    If anyone has any questions I can ask my cousins about it and stuff since they attend this school. I'm just visiting them for this week and decided to spectate.

    Is it eagle claw based? The logo looks like someone in an eagle claw posture. The hands on the kung fu page also look like something from Eagle Claw.

    Why is there a guy in a shaolin uniform on the front page?

    Contracts?

    Did you see the promotion

    yeah, they're guaranteed to have contracts with promos like that.
