      Training in JKD/PFS been good, been doing 3x a week this whole month of january been learning a lot since I had an unlimited package offer, but seems like too much cardio for me right now. Mon-Wed I attend Work then Gym(weight lifting) then MMA training so its been tiring lol.
      Thinking about taking february off so I can see how my body feels, see other offers available and try free classes in other schools this month.
      As much as I like MMA (JKD) because its straight forward Street Fighting there's something missing, yes that GREAT FEELING u get from KungFu training I never seem to get anywhere else.

      Old Ironsides is the nickname of the Armored Division ( 1st A.D. )I served with in Iraq. That picture is the patch we wear. They got that name from the ship also.

      Anytime would be my pleasure.

      I had a few lessons in Xingyi from my former taiji sifu a few years ago. To be honest, I didn't get the whole thing, but I'd be the first to admit I wasn't exposed to enough to have an opinion. Also the teacher was great at taiji, but he himself just a student of Xingyi. So it wasn't a fair sample.

      I assume you know Alex Dong will be in the Hudson Valley in October?

      Well, if and when I can get some Chen going, I'll let you know. For a while more I'm sticking with the program with the group. After we've gone through that form a bit more thoroughly, I'll see what I can do...

      Hey, XS, you are really a great proponent of CIMA on this site. Also, we had a private exchange a few years ago about taiji, Ren Guangyi and Chu Gin Soon if I recall. It's too bad we're not in the same place. It would be a pleasure to train with you.

      Well, I've been dying to learn Chen. Most of my Taiji experience before now has been in the garden variety Yang or Cheng-Man Ching line (which is ubiquitous in NY and quite good). But I tell you, one thing I'm realizing more each day is that the style is not nearly as important as the teacher.

      I am looking for another Yiquan schools since supposely Dr.Kan (Yiquan) doesn't have a set date when he starts teaching again this year from the email I received. Do you know of any others?
      Calling Strider Clark today (Yin Chen Gong Fa)
      What do you think about the Black Taoist & Tom Bisio?

      Haven't checked out any, been busy training in this new job now to finally get my schedule. So the past 4 weeks been working 10a-6p & 12p-8p so lets see how my normal schedule would be probably 8a-4p.
      Other than that, I emailed the YiQuan guy back he told me to get back to him to know so I can know when will Dr.Kan exact date for new classes but haven't heard back from him. Then I got an email from Strider Clark the weekend of the HUrricane Irene and I emailed him back with my contact info, but I haven't gotten a call from him but I will call him this week.

      Great news man, so Strider Clark emailed me back :) he teaches Yin Cheng Gong Fa arts as well as Tongbei (guess Tongbei is his main art from that website u gave me) and also because he is the president of the Tongbei Association. But he's VP of YCGF. He's in Manhattan he says, but his website said Pennsylvania but I asked him if he knew of anyone in NYC/NJ.

      Thanks, I got your pm I signed up on that site looks very good :)
      I found dachengdao.com Grandmaster Wang Rengang has a school in Queens?
      I also found newyorkyiquan.com which is Dr.Kan that teaches in Central Park (close to me)
      I've emailed Strider Clark and Clayton Shiu for more info on NYC (Tongbei & Yin Cheng Gong Fa)

      So Strider Clark is Yin Cheng Gong Fa or just Tongbein ? Thats where I got lost
      But wow YiQuan or Yin Cheng Gong Fa would be the sweetest deal for me.
