    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Shou Shu kung fu?

    Moore's Karate:

    So uh... can anyone tell me anything about Shou Shu kung fu... or Shou Shu "Karate" as the local schools call it.

    Anyone? I can't find anything about it that isn't on the Moore's Karate website. I didn't think that any Kung Fu schools had colored belt systems, I've always been under the impression it's always been a sash system...

    www.mooreschinesemartialarts.com Is their link.

    I've gone in and sparred 4 of their top black belt students and I really only had trouble with one of them, being their top student and teacher who wasn't making thousands of dollars. He had really quick hands, but I eventually managed to outfootwork him and get a few body roundhouses, a crecent kick to the face and a leg sweep.

    Anybody?

    "Blue Belt: When you reach the high blue belt level. You will be moving 3-5 time faster then you can now and will able to defend yourself against 2-3 people at the same time."

    "Black Belt: When you reach the black belt level you will be 100% reactive, you will not have to think at all, and it will be as if the opponent is in slow motion."

    Awesome :new_Llol:

    If you can already defeat their top students there doesn't seem to be much incentive for you to attend this school.

    I studied Shou Shu for several years and believed the story about it being a northern chinese mandarin system. I found out several years later that the system is primarily Tracy's Kenpo with some other elements mixed in. This can be verified by calling or emailing Al Tracy.

    very aggressive style very easy to learn not long on forms very practical good against multiple opponents, weapons etc....is very similar to kenpo many of the same techniques which is not a bad thing not a competition style to offensive for that ie groin strikes and nerve strikes i think you would be pleased with how effective of a "fighting style"it is

    I don't want to attend it. I was just wondering about it.

    So you go from Jean-Claude Van Dam belt, to Miyamoto Musashi belt. After that, you will be Neo belt, and will be able to fight off 100 people.
    DIDN'T YOU KNOW?! The Chinese know everything! And they knew it 4,000 years before YOU did!

    Just your basic chinese style created by an American with Japanese conventions. Standard fare. One would actually have to check them out before making a call.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    I think the fact that the founder's ashamed of the style's real roots is a warning flag.

    I predict a trend in 'authentic american' martial arts names like "Texan Kickboxing" or "Mad Jack's Dirty Wrasslin' Academy". 'American Jujitsu' is a good start.
