    Fang Shen Do II: The Fangshizzle

    I have asked the Bullshido Mods to allow me to insert an intro paragraph into this continuation of the first thread.

    Welcome to the growing Internet legend of Fang Shen Do - but it began here on Bullshido with a few simple questions about the legitimacy and strange practices of a kung-fu school in Canada called Fang Shen Do.

    Fang Shen Do (FSD) ostensibly translates as "Way of Survival" and is the creation of Jacques Patinaude (sJP) a self promoted martial arts 'Grand Master' or 'Sijo.'

    Over the years FSD has variously been known as Wing Chun Do, Modern Wing Chun and Patenaude's Kung-Fu.

    In the long threads you will find, links to where he purchased his rank - controversy around sJP's qualifications to teach anything other then Tony Robbins Firewalking and Arrow breaking. You will also find sJP's claims to have earned his original kung-fu rank from James DeMille (an original student of Bruce Lee), DeMille denies these claims. Oh and the thread also contains the usual flame wars, trolls and sockpuppets (but these are usually at least entertaining).

    My recommendation is to sit back, pour yourself a beverage of choice and enjoy a few hours of reading.

    I agree that BJJ is one of the deadliest and accomplished forms of martial arts out there. I've actually attened a class in downtown Montreal called the Cultural Martial Arts Academy and was highly impressed. Like I said, most martial arts impress me. But if grappling and knee locks and elbow brakes are not my thing, then nor is this art. We all know that an accomplished BJJ martial artist can defeat almost anyone. We say the Gracies do it in the UFC and other mental martial arts competitions out there, all the time. But many of us don't look for the school that will send us out in to competition to win fights in a rink for all to see.
    I agree, I dont like watching fights at a rink either, if I turned up at an MMA event and a hockey game broke out, I would be pissed.

    Oh and 1993 called - they want their post back. MMA and fighting have been evolving at a phenomenal rate in the last 13 years. In dog years thats more then 90 years - a long time if you smell about it.

    Competition is a method to improve your fighting ability by placing you against an opponent who wants to win as much as you do. An opponent who doesnt know you from Adam, and possibly doesnt like you very much. These things make you a better fighter. Winning or loosing in the tournaments is a secondary consideration to putting it all on the line.

    Those that never compete will always be undefeated - will always claim that they would win easily - their kool-aid drinking friends will be the only people that believe them.

    A good solid cross-trained fighter who works wrestling/BJJ/boxing/MT etc will demolish the one-dimensional kung-fu fighter who thinks a wrist grab defence is grappling. Especially someone training techniques that were completely made up out of thin air - no proven combat effectiveness, merely anecdotal stories that prove nothing.

    So you are posting on an online forum that you assaulted someone, confession is good for the soul.

                well..

                Thing is they`ve known it for years but laugh at it..since most of that stuff was just to showcase how certain arts have a common thread, we still all rolled like crazy to find out what worked and what did not....apparantly all the stickfighting was taken from Vunak`s early vids..as well as the knife fighting...and from an Inosanto seminar they attended once as well....Paul knows this as well as one of his Full Instructors in Ottawa, but they don`t seem to care too much about it....Apparantly four years ago one of the fsd guys was runnign around Ottawa saying that the sifood was better and faster than Guro Dan as well, having sparred lower tier fighters myself from DBMA and come out with bruises and more than enough painful welts from the rattan I find this very hard to stomach...I had years of kali behind me at the time several years ago when this happened and thought I knew my kali, until I tried to make it work against the DBMA structure, the "holysh..." factor cut in rather quickly and it changed my entire game...It is obvious they have never been taken to task on these terms before..the horror stories of tire slashing and dojo intimidation run wild in Ottawa...too many of them..I can`t seem to get them to post here, I referred them to stringfellow though....

                    Classic, Fang Shen Do - The legend continues. We now have a double length thread.

                    I am seriously impressed by the information coming out in the last while.

                      * shakes head *

                      You know, I would be happy to let this be and leave this DnD playing, shit sniffing bathroom cowboys alone but for one important thing!

                      They pass this shit off as SELD DEFENSE. Hey Fang Shen Do, you want this to go away, stop selling this crap to people as self defense.

                      I really hope someone doesn't have to fail miserably in a 'live situation' for them to learn this lesson.

                        What the fuck is a "fang shen" anyway?

                          A fang is like a big tooth used to kill things.

                          Sheng's are what happen when God divides by zero.

                          So really, it's "The way of God's fang, when it tries to divide by zero."

                            well, I guess the value of my autographed copy of that book just went up, now I can sell it to some FSD guy as a secret bible. Wonder how a FSD sifu would do against an old man like Hartsell:ninjadanc
