    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I don't know that you would call it a split, from what I have been told, Savelli didn't train with Reeders. He did however train with Bob Servidio, and Bob was one of Reeders original students. Savelli has skill. I can also tell you that I don't know the reason, but there is a definite disconnect. At some point Savelli broke away and made public something(with the addition of his own colorful claims...AKA supernatural powers) that isn't for everybody, and on top of that he charges a fee. The one thing I can tell you, for sure, that I know about kun tao is that you don't claim anything. You keep your mouth shut, when I workout with new sparring partners I tell them I'm a mixed martial artist.

    Saveli claims otherwise here http://http://www.worldkungfu.com/Master.html

    "Master Guy Savelli trained in Shotokan, Tai Chi, Kun Tao, and Goshin Jitsu Kyo Jujo with Master Willem Reeders, one-time President and Chief Instructor of the World Kung-Fu Federation (advised by Sammy Wong of Toronto, Canada). Reeders received his training from Chinese Master Lieu Siong (Master of Huc Chung Kun Tao) who had moved to Jakarta and combined his talents with other Kun Tao and Silat Masters. Reeders was Lieu Siong's nephew and received his training along with such other notables as Ernest and John deVries. However, because Reeders was Lieu Siong's nephew, he trained privately which made his training more deadly and pure. Savelli trained with Master Reeders privately in Huc Chung in Reeders home in Panama Rocks, NY (1964). He earned the coveted rank of Orange Sash in 1965 by defeating 2 other Kun Tao Orange Sashs. (In the Kun Tao system, Orange Sash ranks higher than black belt; Savelli also holds a advanced degree in Shotokan Karate.) Master Savelli trained with world famous mystic, Hazel Ford, of Celeron, New York for fifteen years. Mrs. Ford's expertise was in contacting other people's minds and "knowing." Mrs. Ford was instrumental in interpreting Master Reeders's intentions for Master Savelli. Master Savelli was Hazel Ford's only student."

    So not only did Saveli train with Reeder he had a psychic read Reeders mind.

    Well, looks like you found your answer...Hazel Ford, that's the difference. If it's on his website then it must be true. I stand corrected.

    You misunderstood me and/or I'm not competent with internet sarcasm. I'm not saying that you are incorrect. Considering Saveli claims to possess supernatural powers rivaling that of a greek god, I'm very hesitant to automatically believe anything that is on his website.

    Sorry, I was kidding. What I meant to say is that I completely agree with you. I am very skeptical of anything online, and to be honest I flat out don't believe anything I see online about kun tao.

    Gotta love old threads that just won't die :-))))

    Thanks for bringing back the memories - lol :)
    Some of the comments were priceless and even the crazy ones were fun and amusing. Matter of fact the only way they could have gotten better is if Mike O'Keefe and Brad Savelli had joined in the fun. Sadly and surprisingly Lenny's school in Crossville, TN appears to be out of business.............though for the life of me I can't understand why....

    For anyone that might enjoy here is a clip that I haven't seen on Bullshido.net so far ww.youtube.com/watch?v=_Xc_RVha9h4&nohtml5=False I'm sure you know the key elements required to complete the link.
    You are in for a real treat since at the 3:38 mark of THE REAL MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS part 1 you get to see an interview (I guess an endorsement) by Sonny Puzikas.
