    Interested in Sanshou, need help

    Hey all, I've started doing a little Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and I'm loving it so far, but I was looking for a stand up art.

    Traditional boxing didn't interest me much because I have more weapons on my body than just my hands. Kickboxing interested me, and Muay Thai seems right up my alley, but than Sanshou caught my eye. Being ethnically Chinese, I've always been drawn to Gung Fu.

    I was watching Strikeforce a few months ago and I watched the fight between Frank Shamrock and Cung Le. Cung Le's striking was phenomenal, it was really diverse and unorthodox. Shamrock was getting hit over and over again, and Cung Le looked so calm and fluid. He ended up dominating him and breaking his arm for a TKO victory in the 3rd round.

    So here I am, looking for Sanshou schools in London, Ontario, Canada, or around it. I haven't found one so close other than the one close to Kitchener Waterloo but that's about an hour away.

    Can anybody recommend me a school for Sanshou? I'm also looking to hear about experiences with Sanshou.

    TL;DR version - Need help looking for a Sanshou school in London, Ontario Canada.

    Can you tell me where you are located? There are only about 7 really top San Shou/SanDa gyms in the country.

    You should talk to a Bullshido user called Ozz. He studied a chinese martial art involving hard sparring in that part of Canada. They did traditional exercises and forms, but they definitely hit each other and had some kind of involvement in San Shou rules competition.

    If you can make it, you should try to attend the 10th World Wushu Championships at RIOCH Coliseum on October 24th – 29th. You'll get to see all the best San Shou players in the world, and you'll likely get to meet people who can hook you up.
