sheng chi and moores 'karate' each teach shou shu, so how is one northern and the other southern? i took shou shu for two years. actually had to use them eye spears once, worked alot better than repeated punches to the grill. i did alot of sparring there too, though some of the schools may not spar till you get higher up in rank. actually i found shou shu to be- wait did you just call me a retart?
This thread shall never die.
