    Maybe you should read a little here, and get a feel for things before posting again? Most of the regular users here are probably just going to laugh a little at what you wrote, then find something better to do with their time.

    (Also, what is wrong with using pads and physical conditioning to train?)
    I was going to say... that sounds exactly what I would want in a kung fu school.

      A semi-isolated sanda camp somewhere in China does sound nice. . .

        Absolutely.

        Human physiology today is every bit as different from what it was, a thousand years ago, as assault rifles are from hand-held cannons.

          Human understanding of it certainly is.

            If I didn't know how serious you are about absolutely everything, I might be tempted to think that you were employing sarcasm there. . .

It has little to do with real life fighting and elegant kung fu, not to mention it is unnatural and not worth traveling to China for! In fact I feel in many ways aspects of my ability of self-defense, both verbal and physical, and my spirituality have declined due to the training and the harsh dealings of the teachers, and the lack of a school-like learning environment. Some forms learned were competitive wushu instead of authentic, but perhaps that's how the monks are taught at the temple.
                  So less forms and more Sanda? Sounds like an awesome school. The reason I left my last kungfu school was because it was more forms and less Sanda.

                  You sold me on this school. Thanks.

                            I have seen a few people come to the school who have specifically asked prior to arriving if they could focus on one area, such as Tai-Chi or Wing Chun or Wudang. All these people have been very disappointed, very quickly. The school has a schedule and if you want to do anything outside that you may not receive 'extra' tuition for your chosen area, which I can understand if a Master is trying to run a Shaolin Forms class outside and you want to be inside at the wooden dummy. I really wouldn't recommend the school for Wing Chun as the masters don't like to teach it and rarely do, and there are only two wooden dummies which are broken.

                            Making false promises: never fixing the wooden dummies; saying we can eat as much as we want for breakfast, then two months later handing each student a fixed amount.

                            I feel there are too many students,this makes for a very noisy environment with everyone living on top of each other and the children constantly shouting, running around the corridors, banging doors and making lots of mess.


                            But My whole view of the school has completely changed over the last few weeks. I was willing to put the poor treatment of the dogs, the food, the lack of communication from the school etc ect aside as cultural difference. However when the Head Master invited his friends to the school to kick in one of the Masters that was too far for me.

                            The worst part is that one of the friends who came to beat the master is now teaching at the school!
