i'm now to the site, as well as the art. i have been actively practicing for 7 months now. I have no belt, I have no teacher. i have che. and I've met Che, I have also gained knoledge from 5 animal spirits; the butterfly, dragonfly,owl,cheetah,dog(sibieran huskey). I'm considering going to the shao-lin temple to train (in phoenix) yet i'm a lil discouraged in that i sent them an email introducing myself and asking if there was a way to counter the expence of school. I asked for a job because i want to eventually make the art my livelyhood. I've been given a gift from Che, and through the dragonfly, an invention, a wepon. i offered to share it with the temple even though i have yet to file for patent. I speak the truth I am a dragonlibra. I joined Martial art talk. because i'm trying to decide where i will train outside of my moms house. I'm considerind jeet kune do, ninjitsu, and also the shao-lin temple still. I would go anywhere in the world if i believed that is where i should train and had a sponsor. I think many schools are like universities they have knoledge but money becomes more important then the art and spirituallity. I don't want a free ride just some help. I have a job and will pay to study somewhere in town but Where?????????????
