    Choy Li Fut

    I'm new to Bullshido, and I've been contemplating on whether or not to take up a martial art. Can anybody tell me if Choy Li Fut is an effective self defense system? Theres a school next to where I work called White Dragon Kung Fu, and apparently it's associated with Doc Fai Wong. Has anybody had any experiences with one of the White Dragon schools or Doc Fai Wong?

    I am not qualified to help you much with Choy Li fut, but Doc Fai Wong's name has been around as long as I can remember. Sorry I could'nt be of anymore help. For what it's worth, If it was near by, I would give it a whirl.

    If it's the one in SF, I'd check it out. I believe they spar, cross-train, compete, and also teach White Eyebrow Kung Fu (the coolest name IMO). Never been there myself though.

    Choy Li Fut can be effective if trained properly, as can Bak Mei.

    Which White Dragon school are you talking about? There's a White Dragon Martial Arts in San Diego that has a san da team, submission grappling, and an MMA program. Also, there's a White Dragon Bak Mei school in San Francisco that spars hard and produces locally successful MMA fighters. They both look pretty good.

    Well it's actually Murrieta, but it's based off the same schools in San Diego. I guess I'll give it a try. Can't find very many reviews about it, but I guess the only way to find out is if I go myself eh?

    I could tell you all about the San Diego one. There is not a san da team just yet, but its in the works (there has always been sparring). The push hands is very good and has worked in comps all over the place. There have been a number of students and instructors that have competed in pankration and done well, but honestly the general student body is not all that interested. The experience levels of the instructors varies, but all the chief instructors are badasses, but you probably won't get to work with them directly a whole lot. Sparring doesn't start until the green sash (yellow for point sparring) and up until there it looks like kempo, but there'a an emphasis on applying everything into focus mitts, pads etc.

    Ah, I misunderstood the website. Can you tell us something about the 'grappling' curriculum? I get the impression that they do shuai jiao, but I can't tell whether they have a solid program for groundfighting.

    Thanks.
