    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.
    +1 JP.

    That would not surprise me in the least.

  2. Asheville just made a facebook post stating their separation from The.

    i love it when people take an action with such a high claim, i understand their point, but most of the time they also shortly come up on their own fall. Just the way i have seen things happen.
    ...or is there something i have missed a glimpse of phantoms in the mist. Traveling down a dusty road bent forward with this heavy load..

    Interesting

    I think it is interesting that the apparent reason for the split, as is implied in the Asheville announcement, is that they can't support GMT when he continues to support the Soards after the sexual assault incident rather than being based on the obvious falsity regarding the material's origins.

    Granted, I'm reading between the lines but it seems like Asheville is saying that it would be unethical to stay associated with a man who backs the Soards while it is, apparently, still okay to misrepresent the source of your material.

    Probably because they still believe in the origins of the material.

    Probably so, but Knoxville left over the false material claims and not the Soard issue specifically, no?

    Yes the teacher in West Knoxville did, but I understand he amicably disassociated from Elder Master Mullins in that process.

    The fb post never really explains the reason. So I wonder what was the final straw that made them leave?

    I agree. I'm working on certain assumptions; primarily the assertion that he chose to specifically mention the out west practitioners. Though this could be referring to SD, Texas, I took him to be talking about the Soards. I also considered that he was still crediting the Temple:Su Kong:Ie:Sin The passage of material, which suggested to me that the beef that Ashville had was more likely attributable to fallout from the Soard situation rather than the GMT-made-this-all-up situation. As I said, I think its implicit rather than explicit; and the timing is wierd. Why is the split happening now since the Soard stuff happened a while ago?

  11. from what I have heard there is another legal action pending...but I have nothing to verify that.

    Same question I have. Also the deposition happened awhile ago. None of this is new so why now?

    It May Be

    Since civil litigation moves as slow as mud, it is possible that legal actions began (or the precursor negotiations began) at the time and have only neared resolution now.

    I don't know why now. It's been implied that there's some new scandal on the horizon with the Soards that have not come to public light just yet, but I don't know the accuracy of that implication. We will just have to wait and see.

    Better late than never.

    I believe this new issue with the Soards is just the straw that broke the camel's back. Mullins was trying to remain loyal to his master, even through all of the lineage, lawsuit, make up material scandal. But given the alleged context of the latest Soard fiasco, I believe he has seen the light so to speak. It's a ****ed if you do ****ed if you don't scenario. Remain affiliated and "support" the deception. Break away and "why did it take you so long". I'm sure there was some ego involved, and having to admit that someone you respect and/or idolize isn't all they represented themselves to be for decades. Hard pill to swallow I'm sure. But it's done and I believe the Mullins clan will be better for it.
    Learn more ways to preserve rather than destroy. Avoid rather than check. Check rather than hurt. Hurt rather than maim. Maim rather than kill. For all life is precious nor can any be replaced.
