    In the videos that were from the vesitages of Sin's old school, most of the students were barefoot and wore karate belts, but Sam style tops.

You have a base that may be flawed, may not be. It will get sorted out by a real teacher. Just tell your new sifu what your experience is and what your needs are and go from there. If you find a good Sifu, they will take it from there and hook you up accordingly.
    Most of the time this is just a distraction from work and I hold no real hope of getting any truth. But sometimes there's a nugget of information here and there that piques my interest.

    Lol. It was a joke, but I do wonder... If shaolin temple teaches everything nowadays and erects stones even to SD, then where's the line? What is shaolin?

    No techniques. Just 3 roads of long fist. And I tell everyone that, just not in every post. Also add capoeira, Silat, kuntao, bjj, mma...long fist did **** for mantis. My instructor specialized in mantis.

    Steeles that essentially say "Thanks for your cash donation" are hardly evidence of Shaolin co-opting anything from anyone who buys one.

    And USSD and Shaolin Do seem confused by the notion that buying a Steele is not the equivalent of having a monument erected in their honor. Well, not really. They just know stretching the importance brings them more $$ from white people with a cultural identity crisis.

    I mean, it wasn't so long ago that SD and CSC school owners were telling people Sin The' had a statue of himself erected at Shaolin....
