    I suppose that's somewhat fair but Kung Fu Dragon serves Pleasanton, San Ramon, Danville, Dublin, Livermore, Walnut Creek, & Concord. It's a big school that has the SF Bay Area strategically encircled.

    Well then do you know of any other reasons than location that enable that school to have a large array of students perform? I'm wondering if such a school could ever exist these days in the Los Angeles area unless it was some rich person's hobby horse...

    I'd venture to say that Master Yu Zhenlong focuses a good portion of his program to his performance teams. He was our 2013 WildAid Champion. He wasn't rich when he first immigrated. He worked at establishing his schools by doing lots of public performances to generate more students, and they show well as you have seen.

    I wonder if its dangerous for these double edge sword forms to take so many moves from single edge swords forms because if the kids ever get their hands on a sharp double edge sword that weighs differently than their wushu swords then they are very likely to cut themselves.
