    I'm guessing he went to a CMA tournament that had some San Shou and then watched the forms competition then got confused.

    personally i think they look stupid and they look more like drills to me,but they do exist.
    Oh, all arts have drills so, you might want to word your statements differently.

    Drills are a good thing.

    I can't remember the source, but at one time competitors had to be able to perform one set/routine/form to qualify, so that they were "real kung fu" guys. I don't know how true that is, as I used to read all the crap magazines, etc. I'm sure the practice has been dropped. Anyone else here of this?

    Okay, you are missing the point. Sanshou, in and of itself, doesn't have forms as cullion stated.

    Performing a set/form/routine=/=sanshou.

    You are correct. I was only saying that I heard that, at one time, you had to perform a set to "Qualify'. This is back when I did Wu Shu. I imagine it would have been something simple, but I didn't mean there were Wu Shu sets.

    Ah, gotcha. Some San Shou tournament organisers are anal about people having to have studied a CMA.

    Sad but true.

    Wait, san shou fighters have to pay to fight? Jesus Christ!!!

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    At a tournament, yes. On a fight card, no.
