    There was a time when kung fu was the only martial art in China - arguably, the only martial art in the world.
    Cause the rest of the world never fought, only the chinese. :bssign:

    Another thing that KF article said is that Sanda guys don't kick with their shins. Is that correct?????
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    The article is clearly well-intentioned, but the bias of the author -- who appears to be speaking in a vaaccum of MMA experience -- shows through too much.

    He should have focused on how to take the best of MMA and combine it with Kung-Fu, or how to modernize Kung-Fu as a fighting art through modern combat/sport science. Instead he meanders into theory and unsubstantiated claims.
