"Is anyone else noticing anything strange about these monks?"
You mean like how everything associated with them falls apart under any kind of questioning?
Wake the f*ck up, people.
Neutral, or nearly so

Hah, when Baloonknot and I pointed that out we got scathing responses from all of you.
My single chopstick is bad at serving soup, cutting steaks and basting roasts and chickens. Besides that it owns.

Sorry Dochter, I must have been absent from class that day.

"As for how much the Monks train, they practice everyday, from morning to night. They take it in shifts to teach, so there's always a couple of Monk's out training in the back whilst a couple are teaching."
Man, that's a lot of training. Most people can't or won't spend that much time training. I wonder how good people in other styles would be if they trained that long. I mean, how much of the proficiency comes from the style itself, and how much of it comes from literally living in the dojo?

I think we're forgetting the golden rule here, people. If it's not on video, IT DIDN"T HAPPEN!!

"YL responds by lifting one foot (he can't remember which foot) to knee CY in the stomach and at the same time sweep CY with his remaing foot"
I guess if you don't use it as nature intended it comes in helpful at other times.
Gotta love that third leg. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Also the thing about the head flip.
"CY immediately goes into a Chi Sao routine. YL takes no crap (his words, not mine) and drops his arms and does a of shaolin headflip, he changes his angle and scissors CY to the floor"
So at the Chi Sao range they are basically at 1/4 distance (half at most), how can someone do a head flip at this range AND then scissor the legs?
even if the head flip could have been pulled off YL would be standing on his head as close to or closer then 1/4 (or 1/2) distance from CY.
Makes no sense - as well that third leg thing, although If he's anywhere as well hung as I, then I can understand it easily :)
