Thread: Chan Tai San stories

  1. #1486
    It's been almost a decade since Sifu passed, and 20 years (plus) since most of his articles were published... today I spoke with some of my hing-dai about how many people are still claiming to have studied with the man when they never even met him.... expect to see some press about this soon

    This is one long @$$ thread...

    Thanks for sharing your stories. I found myself relating to quite a few of them actually. Like how you can feel conflicted about some things your teacher did. Accepting that your teacher is only human. The BS in Chinese martial culture. How it can be like a religion at times. And of course of the BJJ zombies .
    Behold. Mighty Ross. His coming was foretold in the Book of BaWang. He will come with a Vengeance on David, Son of Jamie. The Warring Trolls will unite across the Forums of Ching. And the Virgin Warrior, Pure-Hearted Lucas shall be offered up in Sacrifice to appease His Wrath. His Truth will ring in the hearts of the Kickboxers, and They shall be Glorified forevermore. Peace be upon you, Internet Traveler.

    Page 100 of a very enlightening thread full of TCMA history. Your Master ,Sifu Ross, is one of the last of a breed that lived through some very rough times indeed. Good Hunting!

    Do not let the as shats here derail this incredible thread.

    Thank you, Dave for sharing the real deal as it pertains to your teachers and how you trained with them.

    Nice to see teachers as humans and not putting them on pedestals thinking they are not the same as most of us.
    Mouth Boxers have not the testicular nor the spinal fortitude to be known.
    Hence they hide rather than be known as adults.

    If I trained with the guy for over a decade and got beaten badly in a San da match I would become a coach too. Those who cannot do teach.

    So HP is back sniping at people. Cowards hide behind the internet and snipe.

    My door is always open here in Tampa. Come visit, we can see if you can put your money where that cakehole is.

    Eric?

    Why hide behind the net? Come forward and be known rather than act like some petulant lover who has been jilted.

    Eric?

    And if you are Eric, stop contacting me and trying to explain that I owe you anything but my boot up your arse.
