I was under the impression been told Yan Zhi and his younger brother Yan Lei who are the two main instructors are martial disciples rather than Buddhist monks and have never been ordained as religious monks. They drink, eat meat party, have girlfriends etc..Strictly speaking Buddhist monks are prohibited from doing so.

Told? Okay, we aren't going to screw up this thread with a debate, by one novice and a guy who heard arguing, about what monks can and can't do.
