    Liuzg,
    I'm totally busting ass to get out the door right now so I don't have time to check out the site but I AM very interested. Yes I do read and speak Chinese.

    Ronin,

    Gotcha.

    Iron,

    I'm saying it's usefull as a classification like internal/external. Take Baji, for example. It doesn't come from the actual Wudang mountain but is considered 'wudang pai'. I think the Liu Yun Qiao guys tend to refer to Baji or at least Pigua as being 'muslim' Jason Tsou and Tony Yang, 2 of the most notable Baji teachers I know of here in the States, call their organization 'Wudang Assc.'.
    for the most part internal = wudang; external = Shaolin. Nevermind that LOTS of the 'daoist' qi-gong practices can be traced back to Shaolin. The Chinese have always been pretty heterodox anyways.

    Mantis,
    You seem to have the closest background to me on this thread. I got things to say but your bringing up things I don't think I can comment on, 'on the fly'.

    Gotta run. Love this thread. I can't wait to get back. 4 days and counting . . .

    Northern and Southern Shaolin is the best way to describe it.

    I've been to the Shaolin temple in Henan. The temple itself is nothing more than a tourist attraction now. There are a few monks down there, a lot of wooden carvings of people in kung fu stances. There are also a shitload of road-side vendors selling things like nunchucks, sais, glass beads, etc. There are something like 5-6 kung fu schools located near the base of the mountain that the temple is on. However, as I understand it, the monks do their real training in the 7? monastaries that are higher up on the mountains.
