    TKD - "Damn the only thing missing from that above website is the ubiquitous ACT NOW SPACE IS LIMITED"

    The "Act Now Space is Limited" quote is used on many of their seminar sign-up sheets, and it really comes into play when they're trying to plan their Christmas party. (This is fact)

        "Eliminating detrimental habits" " Jacques Patenaude assists his clients in a number of areas drom controlling emotional states" I can't make this stuff up, heck I don't need to.

        Detrimental habits? Sijo, I can't go to the speed/ poo sniffing seminar, I'm working on eliminating detrimental habits.

              These were obviously before he became a "Grand Master" and gave himself the title "Sijo".

                "The Modern Wing Chun Way" Not Wing Chun Do like James Demile. "Let me show you the way" I'm hearing Peter Frampton, can you feel it?

                  PS - My tage line on the last post wasn't addressed at anyone in particular. I just re-read it and realized it could have come off as a cheap shot. Sorry if anyone posting was offended.

                        Neothink

                        Stringfellow wrote about Fang Shen Do and something called Neothink:

                        "I knew that this couldn't be original, becuase JP just doesn't use terms like "neothink". There was also a chart that included words like "Bicameral" (see attachment). So I started Googling. It didn't take me long to find the source. There's a whole "neo-tech" philosophy/cult/whatever out there that was started by "Dr. Frank Wallace" (real name Wallace Ward), who was a chemist at DuPont."

                        While there is some info on the net about "Neothink" there is in the overall scheme of things not a lot of information. My reason for pointing this out is I don't think anyone including Mr. Patenaude would just stumble across this philosophy/cult while browsing in a bookstore or on the net or find it by accident. I'm lead to believe that this neothink is part of a larger philosophy/lifestyle program/cult or multi-level marketing scheme. For example there have been occasions where the Church of Scientology has run charitable literacy programs in schools under another name. I wonder if something similar is occuring with "neothink" and if so how is it part of the larger picture?

                          Interesting points you raise, Andrew. I'm curious, are you aware of any relationship between this "neothink" and Scientology? Or was that just a comparison example that folks might be more familiar with?

                            Creative googling gets me from Neothink to Neo-Tech which is often described on the web as a "Cult of Rationality" or Objectivism and as Neo-Scientology.

                            Given the Ayn Rand type objectivist posts by the Fang Shen Do Sifus, this makes for some very interesting logical chains with regards to them and the way they think.

                            AndrewA or any other ex-FSD guy, do you have direct experience that would shed light on this?

                              Tony Robbins runs seminars called: "Unleash the Power Within."

                              Note the book title for sJP's book.

                              Now most of sJP's seminars are obviously Tony Robbins seminars, from arrow breaking to firewalking. Not Martial Arts Seminars.

                              On his old website he noted this:
                              Master Patenaude is also a certified Neuro-Associative Conditioning trainer with the Robbins Research Institute.
                              What is interesting is that sJP's seminars and teaching appear to have less and less to do with Martial Arts as we move forward through the timeline.

                              And wandering that old site finds all kinds of great pictures of disaster:

                                It was just a comparison example. My point was the deceptive methods of certain cults/groups/philosphies. As another example I once found an ad for a dating service on a telephone pole in downtown Ottawa. After looking around the Internet I found that this "dating service" was actually a front for the Unification Church (i.e. the "Moonies"). Similarily I wonder if neothink is just one part of a larger group/cult and if so what is that group? Like I said, you wouldn't stumble over "Neothink" while browsing books in the library. Cults and their like love schools of all types because the students are natually open to learn new things. Go to rickross.com for tons of info on this subject. My concerns still remain, is Patenaude teaching/promoting Neothink to recruit students into a larger cult/group?
