    So here's the scoop... I think it pissed off JP not to be the number one Honcho. " I DON'T REPORT TO ANYBODY... I'm GOD AROUND HERE". People were more interested in James Demile that in JP. That's one of the reason's he decided to go on his own.

    Also, I think JP did train his butt off at one point. Not so sure about that anymore.
    while I do not think that JP is a model of humility, I would like to know how you came to that conclusion (which by the way makes sense to me). In other word I would like you to bring some facts to backup this affirmation.

    As for his personal training: two anecdotes: 1. when I went to the training camp people were getting injuried and some of the students were starting to want out. JP was pissed about that and he started to moralize us on how he, in his old times, did training camps all week long for months....
    2. I asked once to my sifu how he had time to train himself with all these classes he had to give. Man the look he gave to me I will never forget, in his eyes I could see that he did not in any way want to start and justify himself. the answer he gave to me was so obscure that I have no memory at all of what he said.

    According to DeMile's website, JP was punted from the organization.

    I have a pic of me with a Tom Cruise. Proves I got an autograph signed and met him once, doesnt mean that I am a scientologist who has taken the $5,000 cleansing ritual.

    PS - I'll be the one in the plaid skirt and pigtails! Hmm, maybe considering the company I won't stand out too much that night then?

    Krackie we would prefer you correctly use the multiple variances that the name encompasses:

    1.) Fang Shen Do
    2.) Feng Shen Do
    3.) Fang Shen Don't
    4.) Feng Shen Don't

    You know just in case some someone was searching and incorrect spelling!

    QUEER EYE FOR THE KUNG FU GUY!

    That said, with all of the name changes throughout the years, maybe they thought that by changing the name and moving back to Catherine they could avoid the stigma of the assualt you describe. I don't suppose anyone has any more information on this? It sounds like something that should be investigated further.

    Sounds more like skipping out on a lease...? the old midnight move

    I don't want to make accusations willy-nilly (sheesh did I just say willy-nilly?) But the closing down of the Isabella school is supposedly related to the assault of a potential student. I am not sure if it became a civil or criminal matter, but I imagine it is available for searching in Canada.

    I do know though that an old student of FSD/WCD in the past had told me that Patenaude asked him to slash the tires of the Sifu of another Wing Chun school.

    My ex-roomate happened to be a senior student before there were any franchises, or any Sifu other than Jaques, so I got to hear a lot of the sordid details.

    If you have seen some of the goings on in the MA community, a website by Demille WCD isn't true proof.

    You would have to find some type of real proof. Trust me on this point.
