    i believe gene doesnt do a wushu forum because there is already another popular wushu forum. i am not going to post the name, but i think he mentioned it before.

    It was only just now with the recent issue did I recorgnize that it was lacking here.

    wushu still remains as a wide open area or includes many things.

    if we are talking about forms competition per se.

    it is still evolving.

    even thou there are a lot of hype over the beijing olympics.

    with high inflation, and worst snow storms in southern china in the last 50 years.

    --

    not so good english training for people working for the olymics events,

    and security issues for the athletes and family

    --

    wushu as a sport either in san shou, or forms competition.

    everything is still evolving, rules will change over time.

    --

    there are also research and thesis for wushu schools or wushu programs in college up to master degree etc.

    --

    there are many good research and tv documentary from cctv and all the reseach committe formed from city up to national level.

    my point is that wushu as a whole is open to a lot of suggestions from all circles of the society.

    --

    the main thing is still the response from the general public.

    as pointed out, the flashy moves may be just to peak the interests of the public. and yet does a disservice that how the moves are related to actual fighting.

    --

    just to add some thoughts.

    my point is that

    a wushu forum would be a very big topic to discuss.

    or needs several focused subforums.

    such as the current forums on the boards.

    --

    or wushu form competition may not stand alone without the supports or basis/foundation/roots from tcma or old school cma.

    Could you imagine another subforum on this site where the toxic fire and
    smoke of BS flame wars can spread to and consume. Just think of all the scholarly
    and in depth, informative discourse and fellowship to be had about "wushu
    not being for fighting", "traditional vs...", "lineage??? or lack thereof", "my sifu
    says wushu is...", "the gay pajamas", "why is there no wushu in the ufc", "the
    tag 'wushu' and the actual meaning...", "why a spinning 540 barrel roll scissor
    drop kick will work in the octagon" blah, blah blech!
    Not trying to be a sourpuss but at the end of the day there would prolly be few
    actual contemp. wushu people contributing and more of us same mokes arguing
    over some trifle that someone feels is the most important and or objectionable
    thing in the martial world at that minute.
    If Gene considered it before and decided against it, that may be wise on his part.
    This is only my opinion ngokfei. I know your intentions are pure.

  12. #102
    Yeah a Wushu Area wouldn't mean much, now that you've shown me the light

    But as for Pure Intentions

    The Fame Wars appears to be the magazines Reality Show. While they publicly look down upon it, there is no real intent to stop it thus maintaining harmony on the forum. Moderators MIA - "WUDE = RUDE"
