    A LOT of the techniques in the forms are NOT strikes or blocks, they are clinching and throwing movements, which we also train ALL THE TIME
    Im glad that youve said this and that you are a teacher. I found that theres alot of resistance to this notion in general. Leaving me very pessimistic about kungfu in general.

    There are many teachers and ex teachers that think this way in here.

    Thats good to know. The resistance i met mostly was on other forums and in real life, not here specifically. Arguably though, i presented the notion so badly because at the time i basically sucked, so i got what i deserved.

    Not so much here (as in bullshido).

    For every Instructor you name I can find at the least double that think the exact opposite.

    a lot of truly depressing stuff going on in the Chinese martial arts community over the years. My teacher was good friends with another well known souther stylist, and I hung around his school. He went in the back to answer the phone, and he left his senior student in charge. A guy came in for information and the senior student told him "this is kung fu, we only do kicks and punches, no grappling".... the bigger irony was that while he was saying that, the people in class were working on a part of the form that is actually a forward trip ... eh gads, kung fu sux now
