    Dragonman,

    I received your comment on my profile, but since you haven't posted enough to receive PMs, we can communicate here. I haven't heard from you all in a while either, though I do occassionally run into other members of the JC school. If you've got anything you want to talk about just talk about it here as I'm quite difficult to reach on the phone due to the schedule I keep.

    Cheers,
    Josh

    Actually, this has been discussed to death.

    You aren't telling me anything I haven't either defended, disagreed with or argued about.

    I'm explaining to you where the bias and mixture come from since, you refuse to tell what specific affront you perceive.

    i understand your points but you have to realize, not setting anyone out, that there are good and bad practioners of all arts and that you can't hold the system accountable for the differences. just because one person in shaolin was awesome does that mean everyone is? No and the opposite just because there are bad students does that mean that everyone is in that art or style no

    I would still like to know your specific problem. The CSC are Mcdojo's for the most part. They are directly tied to Sin The who is tied to you.

    You have to realize it is the art of Shaolin-Do. Which is a catch-22. Two years ago when I came here I would say CSC, then have to explain.

    So, Shaolin-Do is what everyone knows as the art created/taught by GMT. This is depending on where you are speaking from not as an insult.

    Just out of curiosity, dragonman, is English your native language?

    And welcome to Bullshido, in a fashion.

    From the OP's website FAQ, excerpted from: http://www.mullins-shaolin.com/faq/faq.htm:
    Do I have to sign a contract?
    We use a local billing agency for our payments, and because of filing requirements, we do require a three month minimum, but you are not locked into a long term contract.

    Are there other costs?
    Here at Mullins Martial Arts we are proud to claim that we are the only martial arts school in the Tri-Cities area with no hidden fees! One fee covers the cost of both Kung Fu and Tai Chi classes. And unlike most other martial arts schools, there is never a fee to test. That, along with the best trained staff in the area, makes us the best deal imaginable!

    (emphasis mine)


    No, it does not look like you are a McDojo.

    It does not appear anyone said anything about your school(s) in Tennessee.



    Other than trying to distance yourself from some Shaolin Do schools run by other elders and which questionable business practices accusations have been made by many former students, what impression exactly do you have which needed you to try and "clear the air" ? I don't see it.

Hell no. there is moves in forms that i can't even do but that is the great part because it makes you become a better martial artist to achieve those moves and there applications
    Interesting. Wouldn't it be better to have a set of techniques at the ready instead of constantly learning new styles and new techniques?

    So, the 900 forms comments irritate you?

    Well, you have to understand that's a ton of information. He is a labeled a Grand Masters. That implies mastery of said 900 forms. That's one reason of many that he gets crap.
