    Good, cause no one should be flaying (FLAYING---WHATEVER THAT MEANS) their arms around while stealing names from northern kung fu.

    I like to use a steamer. But, the 100,00 plus students who DO practice forms couldn't give two squats about the five people on this forum who doesn't like forms practice. LMAO

    Kung Fu has so many forms and so few fighters.... boxing has so little form but so many fighters.

    How are forms justified from a martial return-on-time-invested point of view? Not an emotional response. But what is the justification if Kung Fu focuses so much time on form in training and competition but isn't producing fighters?

    you also havent produced any fighters.

    and when you went to china looking for real kung fu. you went to shang hai.

    david ross can critisize forms. you dont have any authority to do so.

    I don't have a school with paying martial arts students. But this isn't about me. Try not to make it personal, and try to think about the statement.

    Nice. good observation there.

    I won't argue over why forms this, forms that....BLAH BLAH BLAH. either you do forms or you don't. NO MENTION of fighting when you practice forms. when it comes to fighting, you train to fight. you don't do forms. When you practice forms, then forms are what you practice. either you do or you don't. simple really.

    I think I have just as much authority as anyone here. Perhaps more than many.I have studied traditional forms. I have competed full contact, San Da and MMA. I also now train 100% without form.

    Kung Fu is --- used to be --- a martial art. If the forms aren't for fighting, what are they for? Are you telling me there is form training for the sake of form and then also a different set of training for the sake of fighting?

    That would explain things.

    It has been shown and stated over and over that forms were not designed to develop fighters/fighting, they were a system of cataloging techniques and "applications".
    Many systems have NO forms and produce excellent fighters.
    Forms are not needed and have never been needed to develop fighting skills.

    None of that means they serve no purpose. just that they are not needed for developing fighting skills.

    It still is. this isn't going to go back the the idea of Shaw Brother movies is it?

    Why does that seem to shock you? If you don't practice forms, you will never understand them. Those that do, know there is a huge difference. sorry you can't see that man.

    It has been shown and stated over and over that forms were not designed to develop fighters/fighting, they were a system of cataloging techniques and "applications".
    is it possible for any of the FORM HATERS to comprehend that? i'm still waiting for that day to come.

    Exactly
