    It depends what spectacle means for certain people. It can be good or bad. I found real shaolin Kung fu around 1998. I found a songshan shaolin school and thought I had discovered gold. Before 1998...

    Are you there to teach or learn?

    Hey Wiz cool c. What you speak of is the very essence and yes mystery of Shaolin Kung Fu. Itís not mystical but rather an undefined gray area. I can relate to you, being a practitioner myself of...

    Agree....sort of

    I believe whatever style you are training in (shaolin, TKD, jiu Jitsu, etc.) is 100% what you make of it. Nothing will ever replace the hours and sweat of training but definitely mind and attitude...

    Checking in a little late here but to the best of my knowledge the Shaolin Schools survived the great flood. It was mainly the areas that backed up to bayous, levees, and the dams that really got...

    old thread indeed....
