    Lotus

    Has anyone heard of a martial art called Lotus? I used to practice it back in the 70's. I guess this is more of a quiz than a question. None the less, show me what you got.

    I vaguely recall Doug Wong teaching a style of kung fu called "White Lotus" around that time - http://www.whitelotuskungfu.com/ .

    Well this is from a teacher called Preacha Machahanavong. A Thai gentleman who was the OG. I guess it is a quiz.

    You might want to ask atheistmantis, who apparently used to practice it back in the 70s and therefore may have heard of it.

    I think this is the style you counter with acupuncture needles.

    No, it's the real deal. Just a little research will render the results.

    If you want to talk about this style, you may as well just start talking about it. What's the point of coy little games?

    I heard that dude is totally full of **** and the art itself is compliantly trained fantasy horse **** up there with the Booj.

    Someone should send him an email and see if he has the balls to show up and share a little about his experiences and times within it.
