    Wujido: What the f is this sht?

    Since bagging on Shou shou, Shaolin-do, and Jake Mace has all been done before, I thought it might be fun have a laugh at these guys:

    WUJIDO

    From their website:
    Learn Authentic Chinese Martial Arts
    • Learn from the world famous and Honorable Grandmaster himself; Shihan J E Harkins Dashi 9th Dan Black Belt
    • Online training is now available with new lessons and articles posted almost daily written by the Master himself
    • Always Clean, safe, and well regulated environment. Everyone can learn, beginners to advanced
    • The authentic methods, true and genuine in all ways, no short cut or dangerous method injury free, best foundation
    • One of the strongest Kung fu and Karate in the world 5 Animals 8 Methods 6 Harmonies Shaolin Kung Fu unique and rare martial art form
    • 3rd Generation Yang family taijiquan, the complete system; empty hand, push hands, sword, and saber
    • The honorable grandmaster is the founder of modern Wujiquan, based on the most ancient of Chinese Wushu…Wuyi
    Here we have another (possibly fake) Karate guy with no gongfu lineage selling fake chop socky kung fu to unsuspecting Texans. Let's watch the world famous Grandmaster in action:



    Sad to see his students are taught to hop around like animals for sparring. I wonder what happens when these students have to stand up to a bully or protect a loved one?

    ?
    That wasn't even good ....whatever that was ?

    That was funny and hard to watch. You can get money telling them to do that?

    That first clip was pretty bizarre too ya? Like he has taught them a unspoken choreograph complete with when to go limp.
    I would rather see awkward actual imperfect sparring than bad dancing.
    Texas is fulla dojos and even has a "kung fu saloon".....but I think that one is the weekly prizewinning comedy

    The video clips have shown that there is quite sufficient B.S. in this school.

    You are correct...I don't go out of my way to train gongfu with others here in US, as I typically have better experiences with people who train in more sports-oriented martial arts likes wrestling or kickboxing. But I think what sets these guys apart from other American kungfu schools is that in supposedly "authentic" schools, the instructors, at some level, are acting in good faith, thinking that what they train is authentic, despite not actually learning how to fight or wield historical weapons. This Harkins fellow, however, seems to have made **** up from nowhere. I'll save comments concerning the selling of culture for another post, but from the "martial" aspect, what Harkins is doing is dangerous.

    No one would buy that very long or really go into a fight with it.
    (If they do, mine sure have it made in any "ragnaroc" worlds or fights like that)

    The sparring looks like silat mixed with pattycake to me.

    Yes, I suppose we should count our blessings. The fake kung fu teachers in Spain murder and eat hookers.

    You can have Kung Fu in cooking, it really has nothing to do with fighting!

    its an american thing. its called hyerreality. the teacher is not misleading these students, he is merely facilitating their delusion and escapist desires.

    his students are people who compartmentalize thoughts and behaviour, a time for a place. when the students see the twin lion statue and the red door, the image triggers hyperreality. when they pass through that door reality and morality of the outside world no longer applies. that room is their pre paid crazy box. its ok to act crazy and weird because kung fu.

    this is why many chinese teachers became disillusioned, these type of students are true qi vampires. they are only good for signing contracts then discarded.

    This is not American, it's human. lol
    all people of all cultures have some of this in their constructs.

    The teacher is misleading the students and the students are allowing themselves to be mislead.
    This happens all over the world.
    It's not uncommon to find charlatans in any or all unregulated lack of oversight businesses and services.

    People are fully within their rights to make their own mistakes.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    it is only prevalent in modern times with heavy advertisement and image bombardment.

    ita about the blurring between fantasy and reality, how modern people compartmentalize thoughts and behaviour.
