    Yes, I do old forms. And yes, I train with resistance. OK, let me say "trained" before I get my ass handed to me at a throwdown. I'm 2 years out of practice due to asthma, but speaking from experience and where I'd like to be again, I know the difference between a "forms only" tap and fluff kung fu and the stuff that really works.

    I say again, any martial art of old first came about from a champion fighter, and then the techniques were put into a style. Even in the case of Shaolin, they went through exercises taught them by real fighters, and then when challenged, they could really fight. Shaolin today is a joke. Worse yet, everyone wants to drop the "S-bomb" to make their system sound cool.

    You find out your training was **** so, you find another art and bash it mercilessly.

    No, mantis fist he's been slamming kung fu lately. I just ignore it and move on.

    That book looks an awful lot like the load screens for the PC game Oblivion.

    Disgrace to traditional chinese arts, which is already dying due to mysticism and lack of actual fighting application...This is pretty bad. The sad thing is the two actors don't have ANY power in their movements, IMA and CMA draw power from the ground by using their legs and waist (similar to a boxer), you can tell if the person is good just by how the force travels through their body. These guys would get annihilated even by some of medium-grade karatekas.
