    Ok, nothing fundamentally wrong with that...actually it is a damn good idea!

    But it is not the same as practicing a formalised traditional system of Chinese Boxing for the preservation of culture.

    Good luck with finding a Sifu though

    If you've practice your basics well for three years, then you should have great attributes to go and learn almost any kind of martial art. Don't limit yourself to kung fu only. Find a good school that trains seriously and can demonstrate thier ability. Preferably one that competes in some kind of full contact event on a regular basis. If its kung fu, look for a record of competing in lei tai, san shou, or san da. If its not kung fu, ask around here to see what kind of events are considered a decent standard for competition. Don;t buy into the mystery schools that claim deadliness, yet cannot express it.

    ^^^ Very interesting aspect of kung fu being part of the cultural heritage and national identity, which cannot be said about most modern (even if more fight-efficient) versions of knowledge centered around causing physical harm to fellow human beings.

    I know i am sort of coming in late on this discussion but...

    I just started learning Kung Fu I am unsure of the particular style it is as the school i am at does not really specify- shoalin i guess (sorry). I chose kung fu, and in particular this school, i guess because i grew up around people doing TKD and Karate and wanted something different. And because I felt it would suit me best. (plus they have an awesome personal trainer that is helping with my fitness needs)
    But once i gain more experience in it i would like to train in others as well, to braoden my skills.

    Let me help you out on your education a bit. Kung-fu is a general term we used by the non educatated or lazy or the uncaring to describe CMA. CMA has several categories depending upon who you ask. Shaolin is the name of a temple where, among other things, some martial arts are taught. People that say Shoalin sometimes are just doing it for notority and actually have nothing to do with Shoalin in the truist sense. If you like the school *thumbs up.

    Good for you.

    exact same reason as me. Everything in my area is a mcdojo and the place I train at is legit and just so happens to be shaolin (just started about a month ago) and tai chi chuan. I am 15 myself and I have a friend who is also 15 and is a second degree black belt in TKD when he trains 2 days a week............. so knowing that his "prowess" is bullshit I avoided that. The only other legit deal here is Kendo/Iaido, but I prefer hand to hand.

    thats why I do CMA =/ plus I like its history :P
