    Yes, they are a very fine school of dance. Although you might want to learn to tango, you'll get more girls and won't get your ass kicked because you thought you were learning to fight.
    Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious

    I figure fighting a group of chunners would be like water torture, its not the force as such, just the constant trickle of chain punches wearing down your sanity. -The Juggernoob

    yeah, I have some experience with them.

    The above poster is half correct. They clean up forms comps, but that does not preclude them from being able to fight, but it is not the focus of the school.

    1 sparring a night a week, last I knew.

    I sparred with them while training for san shou a couple years back, but it's not my school.

    sure, but as I said, it's not the main focus of the teaching there.

    If you are plain looking for a school to learn to "fight" in Orlando, this is not the place. If you are looking for an old school kung fu workout, training and atmosphere, this might be the place.

    The short answer: no.

    The long answer: Chan Pui is a skilled sifu who knows how to fight (stand up only), and he produced a few fighters many years ago, but his school has been essentially forms only for at least fifteen years. There's limited sparring, all of which is tournament-style point stuff.

    Are you looking for a place to train in Central Florida?

    No, I was just curious.

    If you wanted to learn to fight after training a while, would they teach you?

    oh, and why did you ask about me looking for a school? Do you have a recommendation?

    I can't answer that with absolute certainty, but it has been my general observation that a school without an active fighting program stocked with serious athletes can't produce good fighters. This is both because the focus of the school will be elsewhere (in this case forms) and because it's important to fight lots of good fighters to get better at fighting. This is the same in MA as in any other competitive activity -- one must face progressively stronger competition to improve.
