Is this Kung Fu School Any Good
I know I actually have to look at the school to check it out. But can any of you tell anything from the website?

Look go to a class. It says wushu, nowhere does it say anything about fighting.
Looking at the one seminar picture, they are in the ass dragging stances of modern wushu.
As long as they admit they don't fight and it is for competition, it is no worse than gymnastics.

I had a quick look for CMA schools around Dallas that are likely to have hard sparring (by googling on 'Dallas San Shou') and I found this place :-

Be thorough before you judge. Some people practice forms for a performance aspect. It would seem that this school recognizes fighting and forms are seperate as they seem to train to fight from a kickboxing format.

Yin-style linear bagua is supposed to be exceedingly rare, and according to Bernie Langan out in the Bay Area (who isn't bad at all), it's also very difficult. I find it fairly difficult to believe the gent could simultaneously be good at five of those disciplines on top of YF baguazhang.
Simultaneously, Adam Hsu is supposed to have a decent reputation.
There's a guy teaching in Plano who's supposed to be excellent (a wushu guy who can also fight), fairly new from China, and goes back to do competitions every year very successfully. Can't remember his name, though.
/been out of those circles for a while, ymmv
EDIT: that's school's seems to be in Michigan...
