    As to the rest, only Leonard and Smith have egos big enough to make themselves grand masters - but they are the most loyal to Sin The. So, they will not be splitting.

    Of the remaining six 8th degrees I don't see Mingione or Price going anywhere.

    Grooms and Mullins both appear to be gone already. That leaves us with Green and Nance as possible defectors. Don't know much about Green - but I don't see Grooms, Mullins or Nance making themselves grand masters. They will just teach what they feel best about teaching.
    There's also Mingogne (sp?). He doesn't have a large class, but he is up there in rank and skill.

    It would not surprise me if any/all the defectors started calling themselves the grandmaster of their style. I would also expect them to start teaching material that they were not allowed to teach under Sin The to further distinguish themselves. I would also expect their to be more reaching out to Hiang The and his students as well.

    Maybe

    Their waiting until after the fall gathering to make whatever announcement there is (if there is an announcement). They're pitching the gathering in a strange way this year.

    I'm no expert on the Lexington fall gathering because I've never actually gone. Still, this year, my sifu is having an informational meeting for everyone interested in going to talk about what will happen there. He's never done that before. Also, testing is scheduled for a different weekend altogether, which is also different from times past. I'm not sure any of this means anything but I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop since KC was getting all cryptic up in here and these seem to be deviations from the norm.

    In the same book you got that information from, it goes into the history of Su
    Kong. Normally, very few were allowed to learn all of a style and almost never
    more than one because of issues of trust. Since Su Kong was orphaned and raised
    in the temple by the monks, they had complete trust in Su Kong. He was the first
    to go around to all the temples and master every form of shaolin. Thus, Su Kong
    knew everything in ALL the temples but was at the Fukien temple during his life.
    Grandmaster Ie was Su Kong's direct student. He learned everything Su Kong
    learned.

    You Say: Well, the temple was burned losing a lot of documentation on all
    those forms.
    How could he remember all that?

    Answer: Some of this survived when the temple was burned because the monks
    had knowledge in advance that the troops were coming to raid the temple(the
    leader was shaolin). When the troops arrived, they found the temple already
    burned. The shaolin monks burned the temple themselves. Since they knew in
    advance about the plot, they obviously took some stuff with them.

    Anyway, Sin The was a direct student of Grandmaster Ie. Therefore, as proved
    above, he knows more than just what was at the Fukien temple.

    Were you in active in debate in school James? You argue like a CX'er.

    LMAO at all of that
