Yes, it is very eclectic.

The whole goal was to know 'everything' possible, in order to teach it to your students; however, you took the things that fit your personality and body type to develop a fighting style that fit you.
I am sure I just confused more people.
What does Goju mean? Is that Japanese? And hwy is that used with 'Chinese' and 'Shaolin?'
Go is japanese for 'hard'. Ju is japanese for 'soft'
I believed that If your learned to defend yourself it wasnt bullsht. There is a such thing as Shiolin Goju. It should almost be common sense (for those who have it.) Chinese Goju.. those who practiced the art outside of the Shiolin temple. Shiolin Goju.. the art that was practiced inside the temple. Yes they would look extremely diffrent since the buddist monks would only kill if really necessary. More blocks takedowns and joint manuevers than breaks and deadly blows. You probably learned to control your opponent and use correct timing to eliminate his strikes. Truth of martial arts in general. Fake schools keep thier students for many years. They stretch the curriculum so that they can get more money. Your teacher sounds authentic. He was not interested in pay. He only charged enough to pay his overhead. His interest seemed to be with teaching his students to survive an attack. Also real teachers teach according to the needs of the students. So when he asked the class about their needs, It was a valid question. Some styles take longer to master than others but to make masters is not the job of the teacher. He is only supposed to teach you the techniques. Its up to you to practice and master each technique personally so that you can use them when the time arrives. There are many blackbelts that get crushed in the streets because they dont understand that the blackbelt simply says that the teacher has taught you all of the system. It does not mean that you personally have taken the time and effort to practice, modify and use the techniques he taught you. After the blackbelt is when you become a skilled fighter. Until you personally master the techniques taught to you, you will be a beginner that has simply been shown all the right moves. :evil3:
for more info on shiolin goju search the net. It exists.. theres a whole organization dedicated to it.

Secrets exist free
Secrets in martial arts exist and often die with the masters. Some techniques are considered a secret solely because the creator of the technique felt that there very few students that are capable of using it efficiently and responsibly. The truth is that a secret technique is rarely bought and true martial arts has no price. Real martial artists allow their enemies to destroy themselves through mistakes in their own techniques and they dont bother with bragging and arogance that can lead to those painful and embarrasing mistakes.:hello:
Run to NewbieTown.
Stay there for awhile.

:sniperdan Im sorry but Im not no newbie to martial arts and I do know whats real and whats fake. If you have no idea about certain techniques then you shouldnt waist your breath talking about if they are valid or not. Most "reality fighter" are not fighting in the real sense that you would love to think they are. Most of your UFC fighters fight by a standard set of rules that cater to the grappling styles. For instance If a Juijutsu master fights a winchun master. the wingchun style is leathal having almost no "nice" techniques in the style. Whereas the juijutsu style has non leathal components. In the UFC, the juijutsu stylists will definitely win. Simply because the wingchun stylists will not be allowed to fight at all unless the UFC would like to see a quick and nasty murder in the ring. which is bad for buisness. Striking the floating rib and puncturing the lung is one hundreds of the basic in the style of wingchun. Lightning fast technique simple and direct action. So when we speak of no hold barred fighters that when we expose the real fakes. Most "mixed" martial arts are not martial arts at all. Many of these schools attempt to associate themselves with Jeet kune do yet refuse to admit that they are not styles of fighting. Jeet kune do is not a style of fighting. It is one mans vision put into action. It is also not a made up martial art but or a colaboration of diffrent arts. But every move in JKD is unique in its form and application. The body is more than a weapon but more a paintbrush and the opponent is the canvas. the spectators are simply there to witness a magnificient lethal masterpiece. If you challenge a JKD figthter prepare to Die. because you will. the art is peaceful unless tampered with. So Dr. Stupid, when your done spewing out nonsense about things youll probably never understand, you should go to a competent school and learn a real martial art. or you can continue to get beat up in the streets while claiming your a black belt.
Use paragraphs they are your friends.

Wing Chun has its own rules in its competitions so, rules exist in all styles.
Go get choked out by a JIUJITSU stylist and tell me they couldn't kill you.
Quit using fake buddhist philosphy regurgitated by your teacher as facts.
