Anyone ever dealt with these folks?

http://www.bltsupplies.com/

They apparently have a book I've been after for years. Pananadata Rope Fighting.. Droool.

Anyways, I understand on their site that they're in NYC Chinatown and that their phone lines haven't been restored.

I placed an order on their web page a week and a half ago, and it still hasn't been charged to my CC yet.

Is this normal, or just a result of everything that's been happening.

Any tales?

I ordered and received a couple of 'tai chi rulers' from them a few months ago. As I recall, they arrived within 10 days of ordering them.
I thought that was good service.
Why don't you e-mail them and ask 'em what's the hold up ?

many times over the years. I recently received email from them which I didn't pay much attention to because I don't have outstanding orders. I know they were having some sort of problem. Great help, huh? Look, if I were you, I'd give them a call to make sure your order is being processed. They are good in terms of products and customer service.

well, i emailed a few days ago and hadn't heard anything.... their phone just rings..

i dunno how close they are to the WTC, but I'd imagine it has altered the way they do business a little.

i'll keep calling, but I'm glad to hear that they are legit.

BLT's on Mulberry Street in Chinatown, which was not in the "fall out" zone. But some people down there are only this week finally being allowed to go back to their work places.

BLT is a small "mom and pop" shop. They probably have not gotten back up to speed after the tragedy.

I'd say pretend like you never placed your order, and keep contacting them by phone.

They have an outstanding selection of books and videos.

I know nothing about BLT Suppliers, but stay on them. I have been really burned by certain MA suppliers.

I don't get mad.
I get stabby.

I talked to someone last night who told me in an impatient way to be patient:) I'd imagine I wasn't the only person who had called.

Since they haven't charged me yet, I don't feel too bad.. I'm just panting with lust for this out-of-print book.

Scroll about halfway down. It's spelled slightly wrong in my other post... I always forget how many "an"s are there :)

Many NYC martial artists are familiar with Bok Lei Tat martial arts store.
http://www.bltstore.com/main/index.php

As early as the 70's people would meet under the large painted sign of Bruce Lee fighting Chuck Norris that hung above the store on Canal Street in Manhattan's Chinatown. The store has moved a few times. Once even to Queens. I've know the owners for years and they allowed me to teach my class in the back of the store on Mulberry St.
Well, now they've moved to Flushing Queens Chinatown. They are having some demonstrations and a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sat. June 6, 2009. We will be doing a demo there. I'm sure there will be other schools as well. All are welcome
Here's the info:
136-65 41st Ave
Flushing, NY
Hours: 1030 - 730 pm
718-321-9878

The schedule date for the Grand Opening is 6/6/09 (Saturday) from the hours of 10:00am -1:00pm. The ribbon cutting ceremony starts at 11:00am.

I have such fond memories of the first location which was under the white crane school, and which had this huge basement full of books.

Then they moved to Queens to a location in the middle of nowhere, impossible to get to :o

The "came back to Chinatown" only to have the unfriendliest store set up ever (books literally hidden behind a counter) and the worse customer service ("what, you want to know what that is?" , "you want the price, oh, ****, wait, I'll see if I can find it" , "NO, we don't carry that, I say that to everyone why you ask?")

Back to Queens I guess.. feels like the fall of the Roman empire or something equally depressing

I ordered some spears for a few students and included a note asking for tapered, straight as possible white wax wood. Some joker sent me some of the most deformed, warped wax wood staves of my life's martial art experience. As far as I am concerned those c0cksuckers still owe me a refund plus +....

Hi everyone,

I'm visiting NYC over the weekend and was interested in visiting this store.

http://www.bltstore.com/main/index.php

I tried calling them to see what time they open, but it seems that the number is not in service. Does anyone know if this store is still open?

They are still listed as one of our distributors in our March April 2012 issue (http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/magazine/article.php?article=1027). Call them at 212-732-8388.

Well, they haven't asked to update and paid their bill as of last issue. That would have been three months ago.

Lucas

there is another number listed on their website under 'contact us'

as far as I know, they are gone, but Bok Lei Po on Mott St is still open-not a large store, but they have a large selection of books and dvd's.
I believe Sifu Simon Li has taken up the reigns. He is in Flushing on Main St.

I'm checking on their account listing. Sometimes vendors forget to officially notify us with changes to their distributor listings. That's really their responsibility as billing addresses shift all the time.

Gene,

Rik is correct; sifu Simon Li is operating BLT in Flushing and IS open for business. I visited his store about a month ago. BLT is located at 43-04 Main Street, Lower Level, Flushing NY 11355. You can contact him for more information at: nyhsk.info@yahoo.com or at 718-463-1163.

Regards.

I came on Sunday at around 1, and I found the place closed. I didn't know that the place also served as a Hung Sing Choy Lee Fut school. Do they have the entire catalogue on the BLT website? I ask because the place just seemed so small.

Sifu Yui or Da Jai

May I ask when would be the best time to come? I'm staying in the Bronx and it's an hour bus ride. Does anybody know when they practice? Thanks.

I'm not sure about their schedule.
The school has a website with contact information.

Wude , I would monitor BLT supplies for about a month , then keep on connecting with them . Sure they may be busy but , still they have to process peoples' orders right ? It ' s like a restaurant right ? Although the waiters and waitress , take the customers order , they still have to connect with the chef on duty and his assistant of cooks , so that the customers orders can be processed .

Because , you ' re just as important as other people , without orders they
would ' nt exist . So they have to think too . But email them .
