"I recently met an old classmate of mine from High School. I asked after his family and what he does for a living. He is a large Chinese American about 6'1" and 230 pounds in great physical condition. He works on Wallstreet as a stocktrader. I told him about much of my past history and told him a little about KCD. The first thing he said to me after I explained that I was a martial arts teacher was "How could that be possible? You are way too fat."
He shocked me with his statement. I never had someone just blurt it out to me so directly." from John Perkins Attackproof newsletter

"One of the biggest problems in martial arts today is that of the self promoting individual. They believe that they can circumvent the work and time it takes to become skilled and learned in the martial arts. We, as a community, should question them, hound them and not accept those who bend the system because they are too lazy to work hard. Because we acknowledge them they continue to proliferate. Even worse are those who pretend to be what they are not.
Why canít the question be answered?"

"John Perkins speaks on the 2003 Seminar Video about how he kicked a guy's nose off of his face with his police shoes as the guy attempted to wrestle him. In light of the power you can generate with your legs, the way I see it, the guy was extremely lucky because if John didn't miss he would've easily broken the guy's neck."

"To survive the onslaught of a more powerful opponent, you need to be so light, soft, flexible, and sensitive, that to your opponent, you feel like a phantom or a cloud, dissolving like the liquid-metal terminator, materializing only for the millisecond needed for your strike's impact." :icon_roll

"If you are training center line - you are training Ving Tsun (Wing Chun), no matter what you call it...
And if you are not, it is not Ving Tsun - even if you call it that."
