    I'm new to MartialTalk. Great website!

    It appears that the first Kenpo FAQ no longer exists. It just takes you to the main web hosting site.

    Keep up the good work!

    This is one of my fovourites.
    Well... Not very good if you are interestid in traditional stuff, but this site features very high quality instructions for competetive wushu and gymnastics.

    Some instructions for weight lifting and stretching, plus nutrition calculators.

    As i said, couldnt find that much triditional stuff, but u can chick it out urself. Oh... And the cool thing about it is, that all the instructions are flash animated. looks fine.... lol

    Hello!
    Well, since my book, "The Making Of A Butterfly" was just recently published, I'd like to put in a shameless plug for it...:) It's a collection of stories involving my teacher (who passed away in 1971), my classmates, and me - with a lesson/concept included in each one.

    Just my two yuan-

    I located this site last night. If you are interested in Korean Martial Arts, This is an OUTSTANDING reference. Master "Mac" demonstrates each hyung on video. I do not know him, but would like to give credit where it is due, this is an excellent resource.
