    Hi there Master David! Actually the art is being brought down because it's bullshit useless and all you do is step through retarded forms (Tiger claws rawr rawr rawr!!), you nickle and dime your students, and can't keep your hands off the female students. Nice try though.

    Maybe I shouldn't be so harsh on Shaolin-do. I did learn how to swing a Nunchuku and a big bamboo staff during my 4 months at the Denver CSC. This was of course a completely useless skill and certainly not worth the price of admission but it was kinda fun for a few months.

    My most fun experience there however was having some nasty little 16-year old kid black belt get in my face one night because someone had put my muddy shoes on his duffel bag. He was like "clean it off dude! Clean the mud off my bag!! Do it now!!" And I was like "LOL Hell no." And he was a maaaaddd little kid. With a muddy bag. LOL.

    Brought down by gossip?

    There is a sealed court case which started the downfall on the West Coast.. Get your facts straight.

    Isn't naming the art Shaolin Do trying to profit off Shaolin? If the Do is to be used, it would make more sense to call it Shorin Do.

    How is Shaolin Do the most comprehensive martial art in the world? That sounds like a piece of Internet gossip.

    Well, as I recall from Denver you have to learn and memorize something like 500 different forms/kata to become a Grandmaster in Shaolin-Do. So if by the word "comprehensive" he actually meant "a huge amount of useless ****" then he just might be right!

    Unless your Shaolin gym is being run by one of the below grandmasters, you are not getting t3h r34l.

    Dude no. If you don't remember that is fine, but don't make **** up. There was and is no criteria for who will be the next Grand Master. You earn Associate Master at 5th and Senior Master at 7th. It has nothing to do with how many forms you learn.

    I'm honestly not trying to make stuff up or spread misinformation. I remembered from my CSC manual book a huge number of forms that had to be tested on for the upper level black belts and therefore figured a "Grand Master" had to test on and know all of the forms in the art. I was only there for 4 months so I'm certainly no expert on it, but I did get a decent taste of what they had to offer. Which is why I stopped doing it by the way; I just felt it was a huge waste of time to have to memorize and test on so many forms.

    Anyway, my mistake.
