    Been there, done that, but in my case I had to eat some knuckle sandwiched from a MT beginner before realizing Wing Chun sucks. Count yourself lucky you only got subbed.

    But please, do tell us your story.
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.


    - W.B. Yeats

    Anyone else having a hard time finding the FSD Sordid History thread. It seems to have disappeared and the search function won't locate it, but it will find this one??

    LOL at CR you reminded me of:
    I believe that constant practice in the art of Wing Chun will enable me to transend to a higher mental and physical level,
    I will show respect for the art, my Sifu, Sihings and Sidhis,
    I shall excercise my utmost tolerance and respect for people and general matters in and outside of the Academy
    Now chant that at a monotone at the end of every workout, and you too are training the "Real" Wing Chun.

    I will obey the tenants of TKD
    I will respect my instructor and seniors
    I will never misuse TKD
    I will be a champion of freedom and justice

    I always wondered when I was going to be taught something that would help me with the last two items. You know something really kick ass that would be only applicable to world saving stuff. I mean a gogoplata is pretty cool and all but I don't quite think it comes with the same restrictions that a jumping back kick does.

    Cults like Fang Shen Do must create an incredibly good sense of belonging that satisfies a need in people to feel part of something bigger then they are.

    In a world where we interact over computers and watch lots of TV, this has a draw to it that must be overwhelming.

    Then you realize you've dumped $10,000 and all you got was the lousy T-shirt.

    PS; those snazzy uniforms are really growing on me.

    PPS; Say what you will about Fang Shen Do but I have to say that red dragon logo is a great logo. Non of you can argue with that logo.
