    If you really can't just walk in on their sparring class and watch, then I suggest you find someone that's training to compete and talk to them about the system. Get them to show you some stuff that they find useful in the system and all of that.

    The form in the video is ok to me. The techniques? Ask the sifu you are currently training under what they think of them.

    I'm pretty sure I only enjoy the form because of the sound effects and music. Also its the same guy from Kung Fu Hustle and it's hilarious to think that the same serious guy in the demo eventually played a gay tailor hung gar master.

    As for the sparring like I said. I've been told that it's open from day one but I am seriously out of shape and I would rather pay for the month, see if I dig the classes that I would spend the majority of my time in and then if so check out the sparring classes that I would probably end up at once every week/other week. I'm looking for a decent mix of practical and classical training. There are also tons of places to get open sparring in if I want to I am sure. But I am a nerd to the core and as such I require a bit of the old school style along with the real life practicality. And besides. If it doesn't work out at this place there is no shortage of other options.

    Well, if you happen to not like that form, I'm pretty sorry to say that all the other hand forms are about the same. Maybe time will change your mind.

    The fee schedule looks to be $80/month for enrolled students *or* $25/class for drop-ins, with the option to buy a ten class card for $180 ($18/class) for those who are infrequent but dedicated. Hell, private lessons are only $55/hour. I don't know Seattle prices, but $80/month looks quite affordable to me.

    80 bucks a month is a great bargain. You really can't beat that.

    Damn. I'd pay $80 a month for good cma at $80 a month. I'm hard pressed to think of anything I'd eat **** for. You sir are dedicated.

    Gotcha. I'll call and get clarification but that seems more reasonable. I've never dealt with matt fee's before so I apparently assumed the worst. Funny enough that place just a bit closer than the one I'm currently at.

    Thanks for the Link IIF.
