    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone heard of Rothrock's Kung Fu?

    I'm from Pennsylvania and Master Ernest Rothrock is considered a reputable Kung Fu instructor in the state, primarily in the Northern Eagle Claw system.

    Has anybody ever heard of Ernest Rothrock or attended any of his schools in the Pittsburgh or Scranton area?

    *edit, traditional eagle claw has very little in ways of practical application though it did help me understand ceartain joint leverages. I don't know that instructor well enough to say he's good or bad.

    she's like, 50, now. I'm sure she's hot for her age, but she was never a Jessica Alba or anyhting, on her best day. She's, I'm pretty sure, a Scientologist or something....

    I don't know of his schools in the Pittsburgh or Scranton area. My brother is a BB from the Reading (west Lawn) school and held the school in high regard (as do many people from this area). As far as Ernest Rothrock goes I have heard rumors that he was originally a pai lum guy. He is supposedly Leung Shum's successor in the eagle claw lineage, but I don't know how long they trained together. Does Rothrock teach only eagle claw now, or does he still teach "shaolin kung fu" ?

    I'll see if my brother knows anything about the Cynthia Rothrock thing next time I see him, or if he knows anything about the Scranton school. He trained at the Pittsburgh school for a weekend. It was an eagle claw seminar, I believe. He said Rothrock's skills were awesome, but I take that with a grain of salt because most people seem to think that way about the head of their style, and it's from a rather biased perspective.

    Pai Lum? Yeah I'm familiar with that system of eagle claw. No real direct application but funky to learn.

    50+ chicks can be very, very sexy. I dont' have to like her religion to fantasize about her.
