Food for thought
Some things I have come across lately that may be of interest to SD likers and non-likers:
1. In at least one of Bruce Frantzis' ("Energy Arts") books on Chi Kung/Qui Gong training, which he claimed to have learned after years of resident study in China, he describes chi kung and meditation methods, and notes (not verbatim quoting), the techniques particular to Shaolin practitioners in breathing meditation to result in "vibration" or involuntary shaking of the body. Any one who's taken GMS' or MH's or SD's breathing meditation classes will find that very familiar.
2. In the Karate Kid remake (in China, with Jackie Chan), didn't the uniforms worn in the kung fu schools look a lot like gi's?
3. In a book by Wong Kiew Kit, who refers to his 30 years of practice and teaching of Shaolin, and being 4th generation successor of monk of Shaolin Monastery and Grandmaster of Shaolin Wahnam Kung Fu Institute, and author of "The Art of Shaolin Kung Fu," etc., lists as a "useful" resource, Master Leong Swee Lun, who's school of Bagua, Shaolin, and Taijquan in Malaysia, is called "Hapkung-Do" (which I've also seen spelled "Hapkune-Do").
Not claiming to know what any of that means, but thought it was interesting. I'm just sayin' . . . .
