I believe that it is legit, but my knowledge is limited. I would like to see other posters with more knowledge and experience than I have answer this question.

don't swallow the bullshit!
'Secret information' is a classic cult maneuver. "Stay with us and you'll learn things that only the select few will ever know....." etc etc.

Anyone know anything about this Raf (a.k.a Zhiwei Chen from Montreal) fellow that's the Wudang Neigong master?
Also, it's not much of a secret if you can find yutube vids on Wudang Neigong...
Interesting history lesson here... Let's just say that I'm very skeptical of the 12 generations part.

Martin, Martin., your extensive studies, ??? with who?? for what?? you have never studied under a legit teacher for anything else....
Not JKD, Not kali, Not BJJ, Not Wing Chun, Not the new Chinese Kickboxing SanShou, Not MMA not anything....ever..
and no your daddy does not count since he was never certified...extensive????????????????? why should anyone believe that you have now studied under anyone legit?
Is your extensive studying in books, videos/dvd`s etc...since that appears to be where you have gotten your material from prior....for "new" ideas to make people cough up their cash...
Your EGO is nauseating, save us the tripe, (thats cow fat BTW) ...
I wonder how that European Officer would feel about the other connections you and your family have bragged all these years about...??
Off to the bathroom to puke.....
I started a thread on Dragon's List about the topic of Wudang Neigong, and looking for opinions on the FSD's history lesson.
I particularly liked this reply:

i was walking outside the FSD downtown location today.
they now advertise as teaching JIU JITSU.
so it could be either
1)they really do teach JIU JITSU. I find this hard to believe. Is is true that hey are now associated with Can Ryu Jiu jitsu with Therien JJ. It was pointed out that they merely shared school space in one particular location only, and that though some cross training may happen as a result, no form of jiu jitsu was incorporated in the FSD curriculum.
2)they are hoping to attract as many students as possible, cashing on the MMA hype. they also advertise cage and octagon fighting...
i think it's no.2.
Doesn't surprise me. They are touting Bo staff training as the cure for ADD on their blog right now. But to expand upon your point, I found this link quite interesting...

Though the FSD website doesn't seem to have any mention of JJ classes..
the FSD blog is pure gem. i love louse time!
can't read clear on the ads... the therien JJ + FSD combo is at one location only?
