    Lo.

    At my Kung Fu school the instructors are very much about sparring, and sparring hard. And the idea that people can do KF and be UNFIT just completely blows my mind. The amount of conditioning we do is insane so i assumed that all KF schools are like us. My bad i guess.

    Anyway what I wanted to say is that our Si-Fu encourages his students to cross-train, take part in tournaments, go to seminars etc.

    He believes that if someone finds that another MA suits them better then they should damn well quit KF and go and do it. Its the smart thing for everyone, including the KF school. I mean why should the instructors waste the time of students who want to learn by teaching those who don't?

    It just seems to me that many MA instructors are afraid of losing students so they do what they think they have to do to keep them.

    Of course in the long term their students wise up and leave anyway... :)

    ciao

    Hey, welcome.

    I'm thinking about doing MT and BJJ as well as WC too.

    Have fun in your training.

    And you're arguing for the benefits of using BetaMax while the rest of the world has moved to digital. Just because you hook your player up to a HD Plasma TV, doesn't make your case any better.
