    Hung Gar places in Snohomish County, WA, I can't read forum descriptions and rules

    Hey all,

    Looking for a legitimate place the teaches Hung Gar for a reasonable price in Snohomish County. Allot of places around here that looks like MCDojos and charge up the a**, hard to filter out all the garbage. Does not necessarily need to be a school. A group people/person knowledgeable of the art would be sufficient as long as they're willing to teach.

    Thanks.

    Tradition and interest in the art itself. Took MMA/BJJ and found no interest, has no principles, traditions and anything involving art has been completely stripped of it. I do not see it as something one can dedicate their life to mastering.

    Well good luck!

    I really don't see you doing well in any environment with such a mindset tho. The whole making things up part of it, not just the sillyness. You see you either tried MMA and/or BJJ (which was it?) and did not want to learn how to fight but instead wanted to break boards and pretend or didn't actually train in either...

    Hey man you're untitled to you opinion but everyone seeks to learn an art simply for the purpose of knocking someones head off. It's fine and all, but that should be the least of reason to learn something. You're free to study whatever you want and if you think mma, wrestling or whatever are end be all fighting methods best of luck to you.

    If you want an art full of "tradition", but actually want to learn how to fight, you may enjoy Kyokushin.

    So how long to you think it would take to "master" BJJ ?

    I mean, I can imagine how getting into MMA might be a bit discouraging, but BJJ has quite a bit of tradition to it.

    BJJ is primarily grappling, so no knocking a guys head off there. I can see where MMA might not appeal, really, but BJJ (outside of the context of MMA) has a lot to offer.

    LMAO at the no "tradition" in BJJ comment....

    What exactly do you mean by "principles" and "tradition?" Give SPECIFIC examples of what you want to learn.
