    Whiteshark, I trained at the Calgary school veeeery briefly and they definitely do not consider themselves to be performance Wushu people--lots of contact sparring, etc. For the record, though, they seemed to be pretty good fighters with a legit link to the Shaolin Temple (for whatever that's worth).

    The forms may be a completely different story, but unlike the Wushu competitors you more likely come across, these guys do more than just forms.

    THe ONE thing that makes a Martial Art , a traditional art is SUPPOSE to be COMBAT effectivness.
    TMA were ONLY about combat.
    WHAT the **** happend????
    Was it the chinese and the Japanese teaching BS to the westerners on purpose?
    Was it the commercialization?
    Was it David Carradine in Kung Fu ?????????

    wushu is the brainchild of the chinese communist party. if you want total control of the people would you let them get good at hand to hand combat? but to save face and pretend they still care about the tradition of kung fu they basstadized it into this dance wushu thing and make it look really cool to impress the west..
    shame...

    also, if you look at the tight ass legal systems in many asian countries regarding self defense, you will also know why kung fu has been watered down into a dance thingy, friends from china, japan, taiwan tell me there's not much right given to an individual for self defense in their home land. in some case they don't even have the "home is the castle" theory, I heard story of men breaking into home armed with swords, home owner fought back with sticks, killed an intruder and suffered serious injury, once recovered spent the rest of his life in jail
    ain't freedom and liberty great!

    As someone has said 99% wushu/kung fu is crap. I agree with everyone totally.

    We are refering to the MA not the sport arts, and I don't know of any clips showing the "military" version of San Shou, do you? even the civilian version would be cool to see.
