Quickjab, if you really want to be doing san shou (I love san shou btw....its the stand up art of the future), you couldn't get better than Ross.
Ming, tell me more about yees-hun ga

it's a traditional hung ga school in many ways (deep stance training, hard conditioning, hard sparring, forms, qi gong, etc.) but there is also a strong "freestyle san shou" program as well.
the freestyle san shou program is not a normal san shou program since we include grappling and ground fighting as well. we also tend to not compete in san shou anymore, favoring lei tai fighting since we don't like boxing gloves and prefer the fingerless MMA gloves. we have also been actively competing at NAGA grappling tournaments as well and are looking at sending a couple people to compete at the arnold classic in MMA.
we train all three ranges (standup, clinch and ground) and do a lot of alive training with focus mitts, and thai pads. we teach throws, takedowns and both grappliing and striking on the ground.
since i know people will ask, the head instructor has also trained with erik paulson in combat submission wrestling as well as training at a shooto gym in japan, so the grappling is pretty solid (of course it goes without saying that if you want to train with top grapplers go to a BJJ school, there are plenty in nyc.)
oh and i am sorry to post all this in a thread about david ross and NY San Da.... i just thougt that anyone checking him should check out yee's as well...
oh and liokault, i have a lot of respect for sifu ross, but i think it is a fallacy to say that better quality san da training doesn't exist out there (the chinese national sanda team, jason ming yee, marvin perry, cung le all come to mind.) if you are talking about in nyc and pure san da, i would agree, sifu ross is the man to train with.
sorry for the long post. hope it was informative.
Bullshit, Yee C. Wai is a shitbag Tang Fong LOSER and I personally know the Sifu that gave him the expanded HG curriculum ... only to have Fukwit Franky muck it all up with his "kickboxing" ****.

i really don't want to further sidetrack a thread about david ross, so if you want to further discuss this (but why would you?) you can always PM me about it.

Our strength is definitely "stand up" and we do Muay Thai, kickboxing, boxing, etc in addition to San Da.
We also do MMA and offer grappling training, though if you really want to be a ground grappler, Renzo Gracie has the #1 school for that focus and I'd strongly recommend him
NY San Da is at 336 W 37th Street, between 8th and 9th
YOu can also check out www.SanDaTrainingSystems.com for training info and other similar stuff

If David Ross and NY San Da are bullshido, then britney spears is incredibly talented and Paris Hilton is a misunderstood intellectual dilletante who holds complex and nuanced positions on foreign debt relief policy based on the information gleaned from respected, academically rigorous sources.
And you, posting on a thread last touched in Nov 2005, are a man standing over a horse that has long since been dead pumping away.
