    That's what irritated me in the first place. I hate drama but, it was thrown in our faces constantly. I go out East, get treated to lunch by the Cook brothers(?), learn a form, get a tour of the Kentucky school by Leonard, cross hands with Smith (awesome Tai Chi player), get treated like an East student, and I dismissed all BS I had built up.

    That was eventually the beginning of the doubt in the West for me. Other things included calling The' senile, disavowing weight training (not lifting) and generally contradicting The' at every turn.

    wow...I had no idea. I feel really bad for all the nonsense you've endured. Yes, the Cooks are brothers, btw. I wish you had been brought up in the East, and I apologize for the West. I weight train 5-6 days a week, hell, check out one of GM Sins older pics...he bodybuilded himself. Again, sorry man.

    Oh I know. Heck, I was at a seminar where he talked about weight training. Immediately after that, is where the senile comment appeared. You know, you have to keep up the illusion that chi is inhibited by Muscles.

    Maybe my recollection is off. Isn't Shaolin-Do the art of Sin The? The guy who claims his art came down from the "Hairy Grandmaster" who has already been proven to be a circus performer who had no connection to Shaolin-Do or martial arts at all? The guy who claims that his master melted a baby by accident because his chi was so strong he could gain the Hot Hand faster than Michael Jordan?
    Why are you arguing practical matters of belt ranking with this guy? You might as well argue about the fuel consumption of a DC-9 starship with a Scientologist.

    Nah

    Yes, Shaolin Do is the art that GM Sin The teaches. No, GM Su Kong Tai Djin isn't Jo-Jo, the dog-faced boy who used to be in European circuses and sideshows...who's real name was Fedor Jeftcheive. Jo-Jo was decades later.
    GM Djin was the last GM of the Fukien temple before it was destroyed.
    No...GM Sin never said anything about a baby melting. He said that his Sand Burn teacher in Indonesia, accidently burned a child and so quit teaching, which led GM Sin to seek out GM Ie.
    GM Sin has had two monuments dedicated to him at the Shaolin temples in China, by the monks themselves.

    Yes, yes, the monuments or whatever are old news here, too. Members with experience in China were not impressed. According to them, such matters are easily arranged in return for donations.

    sure

    GM Sin has also taken over a demo team to tour with the monks as well.

    Also...GM Djin was not Jo-Jo...

    And...no melting baby.

    WTF are you reading. I'm not discussing belt ranking or anything in that realm. We know mutual people.
