Up until I left about 1.5 years ago, they still taught the full nelson escape assuming the fingers would be interlaced. I had similar experiences with failing to correctly interlace my fingers. Not with the "Grandmaster", of course.

1. Is everyone pretty well convinced that this guy is genuine? I'm still feeling a little skeptical. Nothing personal. I can easily imagine this guy being a much better version of "Mantis" from the Comba-Tai thread--a guy who shows up to cheerlead and parrot what he thinks Bullshido wants to hear, then turns and tries to get everyone to turn with him.
2. I don't see how it's possible to hide your identity if those stories are true. Patenaude would have to know who you are instantly.
3. Not really a question--don't totally discount Patenaude's story about the street guy masturbating on the wooden dummy. It's not exactly the same thing, but I worked at Best Buy for a couple of years not long ago and had to work two day-after-Thanksgiving sales. These are crazy days when thousands of people go through the store and the lines stretch all the way around the entire big-box building. Both years I worked, we found human feces in places like furniture displays on at least two days during the after-Thanksgiving week. This was considered normal. Again, not the same thing, but if you can imagine walking into Best Buy on the busiest day of the year, dropping trou and defecating on the carpet in the middle of an aisle, surely you can contemplate masturbating on a Wing Chun practice floor.
Seriously, you guys, I thought my life would turn out so differently than this. It's Friday night and I'm taking a break from pulling up carpet in the living room to post this crap.
Where did my mom go wrong?

then you'd know.
I don't particularly care for the whole 'impressionable youth getting taken advantage of' angle, and not sure if it rings true or not, but I *totally* buy the rest of the cult-y stuff. Been there, seen that.
The level of devotion is very high among the 'sifu' class. And to be honest, as soon as he started to let normal humans be sifus, he started to see them not be as devoted. It's almost like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I'm pretty convinced he's legit. If you've had experience with these guys it's not hard to read something and tell if it's them or not. For example, when TKDBB sparred with a fanger, someone else had current fangers read it; at first they were skeptical it had even happened, but pretty shortly they were totally convinced. The details are too difficult to fake without having at least had a good deal of experience with FSD.
I agree about the stories being pretty specific for hiding one's identity though, and that did give me a little pause. I guess he's counting on sJP being really out of the loop or something; the more identifying stories involve only the two of them.

I'm pretty convinced this is legit. I've heard a number of these stories before. I'll see which ones I can dig up as already on the net.
Another version of the Homeless Story was posted on Bullshido already. The two stories are similar enough that it could be the same story from two different angles. Or they just had a lot of homeless people walking in to Catherine St. that got beat up by sJP.
