    Modern Wushu

    I'm fairly new to posting on KFO.I usually post on the mantis board,but I wanted to get opinions from people with different arts.This is the question:How do you guys feel about the impact of modern wushu on kung-fu,Negative/Positve?I know some of you will say negative because it's not practical.Which in that case came you really blame guys like ralek,truewrestler for bashing kung-fu?If you were in a room with two large guys(that really want to hurt you) and you could have a pick between ralek and a modern wushu guy who would you pick?If you think it is a positive impact please elaborate on why you think so.I just want some good feedback on what you think about this subject.

    Sorry

    I meant that you could pick either a wushu guy or ralek to help you in a fight with two guys.

    wushu. we all know that ralek can't fight. his alter ego(s) can, but the dimwit that is ralek spends more time with his cds, and a pentium chip is the only opponent he can beat.

    Rampage is da man....... but if i could do all of that flowery stuff when i was younger... my flexibility and explosiveness would be a lot better... those ARE some athletic guys flippin around and sh!t... take one of them... teach them to fight... and u might have one badazz fighter on your hands...

    Hi dodger87,
    I don't personally do wushu, but my son does. He loves it. It's highly acrobatic, and lots of fun. It definitely gets the blood pumping.

    I guess it all depends on what you're looking for. I take him there because it's a high energy release for him. He's very active, and it works wonders!

    Any more questions, just let me know!!

    Omg wendy :O HAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahaahahah.... didnt know you still hung around here probly forgot how we used to b!tch at each other on the volcano chat thingy a year or two ago heheh.. memories...

    I do Wushu, I have my own lil school in town here. Like anything, its what you make of it. If you want to learn to fly like crouching tiger.. well sure go for it Its a great workout.. noone survives my classes so far The technique is awesome and the coordination it develops if hardly beateable.

    All depends on what you want out of it.. some say its useless to fight with.. i say BS to that anyways go try it out.. one thing tho.. its not good for you at all hehe kills your body

    Hmmmm

    Depends whether you want to leanr how to fight or want to goto dance competitions and do forms that have little martial meaning really!

    What do you wanna do fight or dance?

    Dancing is awesome and dancing with martial flavour can add an extra-kick to it. They mingle well together.

    well it depends on the situation if im walking through a dark alleyway and 5 rapists pop out of nowhere i wanna fight well. But if im at school and i feel like ripping of my shirt and walking around half naked i might wanna learn how to dance to impress the hot chicks.

    but yeah a bit of both would be cool, but i'd prefer to learn how to fight.

    If you want to learn how to fight make sure the place teaches San Shou, or some other full contact sparring.

    I don't do wushu but I know a few guys who do. They seem to enjoy it and they are in great shape. I think from a martial arts perspective it could help with flexibility, speed, balance, those sorts of things.

    aha....wushu....the art of substance without foundation!! Or should that be looking good while getting beat?

    seriously though...it has its Martial merits.....I just still have yet to find any!
    I think, therefore I am awake!

    It's easier to learn to do it now and maintain it in old age than to try and learn it in old age.

    The world is my oyster.....Unfortunately I'm vegtarian.
