    No, but the core group of techniques, and underlying principals could definetly be that old...for almost any style.

    I think this is a true and irrefutable statement, but isn't it funny that so many people are still continually looking for that one 'ancient secret' method that will reveal better fighting techniques than anything known today? As if no matter what we do in the modern world, and what advances we make in the study of martial arts, technologically or otherwise, we can never be as good or knowledgeable as the ancients.

    Is that a common opinion here? Are we destined to never be quite as good as our martial ancestors, regardless of style?

    That is because they fought more regularly, and consistently. We argue just about it online..

    They say Lion's Roar (Lama Pai/White Crane/Hop ga) has Indian martial art in it, you look at this and you say "yes"

    Talking Lions roar

    According to my sifu, Lion's Roar orginated in India then came to Tibet where it grew and then finally to China.

    Yeah, I remember seeing a special about this art a year or so ago. That special said that Kalari starts with weapons training and ends with empty handed training. I always thought that if you were wanting to train an army that would be the way to do it.

    I like it. I'm not surprised to see a general resemblance to lama, but to see some of the exact techniques shows how conservative the old arts are. Double paau cheui with a step-through!

    Whether it's martial arts, religious practices, or clothing styles, you'll see crossovers between China and India. No real surprises.

    If you ever get a chance in your lifetime, visit the Himalayan mountains. You'll see exactly what I'm talking about.
