    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Here's what's wrong with Kung Fu today

    Please click the "Drunken Boxing" style video clip. What a bunch of garbage!!! I'm sorry but this is just plain STUPID. Also, don't even get me started on "monkey style!"

    Uh, that's Wushu not Kung fu. I think the latest buzzword on the forum for this is "Straw Man" argument. Nice try though.

    It's not kung fu? The page says "Shaolin Wushu - Kung-Fu Videos" in big bold letters - don't blame the messenger.

    Anyway, if the drunken boxing guy gets into a fight, at least he'll know how to look good lying on his back...
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    Yeah, that's getting to be tiresome. If this isn't "Kung Fu", then Kung Fu people need to go and regulate and quit flaming people for believing it is. If you're not out there actively taking the bullshit down, then you are part of the problem.
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    Wushu is Kung Fu. It's just Kung Fu without the combat practicality!! Basically, it's good for fitness and staying limber. Wushu has NO other qualities. So, as far as I know, Wushu IS KUNG_FU. After all, we all know that MOST kung-fu practitioners can't fight!!

    Wushu= Martial Arts ( the Wu = Martial)
    What the chinese have made wushu into is a disgrace, but, what 99% of the "kung fu" practitioner have made kung fu into is even worst.
    What was once a proud and effective MA, has been turned into a joke by the very people who are suppose to uphold its "martial tradition". It is a pathetic shame.

    Omar a while back had some interesting comments on this. After all he was in China, and got to see some things first hand. Plus one of the points he brought up to me, was many of the Chinese don't even know this debate exists. So many of the really good practicioners (spelling) are not even aware of the debate nor do they care. But the point still is he has seen some things that beg the question. WE need Omar.

    Actually Ronin, you could say that about TMA on the whole! The state of MA is a pathetic shame! Walk into any Kung Fu school and you'll notice that most people train like sissies!!

    Also, many schools DO NOT spar!! I have seen this with my own eyes....
