Has anyone contacted Patterson and asked him the question. Personally, I don't consider Patterson to be a threat for kicking a Girl Scout's ass ... but that's just me and is in no way disputing his lineage.

Mr Presott's info is listed in yellow.
Well ... that answers the question and begs another. Maybe Patterson will provide someone with the information Ian submitted for his review.

kind of, sort of accepted a challenge
Looks like Shen Lung Yi is scared. He did almost accept a quasi challenge on Kim's board.
They like Ashida's board because they feel safe in their comfort zone.
He is obviously bent on the make money on unsuspecting people who know nothing about TCMA in his area as well as entice people into his video learning.
I bet he went out and bought a huge crapload of the material that is offered by different people, then took it home and copied it. He then refilmed it with him just moving along with the moves, not knowing what he is doing.
A teacher who has nothing to hide would be here and post up.
Others have done the same.
Silence in this aspect seems to point to his being a total armchair master of the rewind button.
Ian, there are now more people involved. We have asked you to come out and answer that which has been posed to you.
Looking forward to your answers.
Mr. Prescott advertises in the Electric City (local Weekender Magazine). The editor is a friend of a friend. If he's full of bullshido, I'll let that editor know.

For your enrichment, gentlemen:
Sir, do you speak Japanese or Mandarin? These are the two languages you seem to reference here. Based on your statements, I would conclude that you do not have any real knowledge of these languages, and thus, cast doubt on the veracity of any other claims you may make.

忍 is the character pronounced nin. It means "perseverance". It is a composite character. The first sub-character is 刀, meaning blade. The second is 心, meaning heart or spirit. Thus, the character can be seen as a blade pressing down on the heart. To deal with such matters, requires "perseverence".
者 means "One who"
Thus, a 忍者 is "One Who Perseveres".
I have seen the definition you subscribe to...in the Nicholas Linnear books, which are great reads, but offer little in the way of actual knowledge. I also have never heard this term you use "nien jih suu". Could you type up the Chinese characters for it. That would make analysis a lot easier.
Until you show me otherwise, I am forced to conclude you have no clue what you are talking about.
I have friends in Scranton who I haven't visited for quite a while. I would like to see them soon. If necessary, I would be willing to stop by this gentleman's school for further investigation.
