I am going to say some thing that will cause a lot of heat and this could be used for anyone looking into an art.
Instead of getting he said she said about an art. Go to the school your self and if that art is not in your area look on Google and call the people that teach the art.
And make a...
I live in the Columbia basin of Washington state, ( In the Moses lake area)
I was wondering if you knew of any real wing chun teachers out my way or even in the Spokane area.
I thought about Seattle but that is like a 3 hour drive each way. SO! thanks for the help.
And good luck...
I hate to say it but it is a way to control the heard. Meaning it is part of the business model. That you tell people that train with you that, they can only train with you. That way you get all of their money and if they train with others they are considered not loyal. (Its a mind; well you...
I live in an area where there are no big schools that teach anything. I have looked even online and found nothing.
I am how ever looking for a chinese art not a mixed art. I live in the Moses Lake area of WA.
And was wonder if you all could help.
I want to thank for your time.
Thanks for all of the post. I too kind of thought that his WC background was kind of iffy at best. Not saying he may not be a good teacher or a good fighter.
I am just looking for some one in my area or as close as can be to teach Wing Chun.
Also in case he is not telling the truth, I was wondering if any of you know of a wing chun teacher in the columbia basin of washington state.
Because I would really like to train in wing chun. And even though there are dvd's showing how to do things. I would much rather have a teacher.
I have been trying to do some home work on a teacher by the name of Joseph Simonet. He claims to be a black sash in Wing Chun which is fine most people claim what ever they want anyway.
When I tried to find out who his sifu was. That was where the lead got cold.
I Think the best way to answer your question is like this.
You say that you have a wife and kids right. Well if the art you train in brings you back to them after a fight and you have most of you body parts then that is effective enough.
The truth of the matter is most people who train don't...
LOL, Sorry about that Chris what I meant to say was Do's but by the time I posted it. It was to late and it would not let me go back and edit that.
And I totally undstand the whole what if thing.
Thanks for the help though guys.:asian:
I am soon to be joining training real soon. And I was wondering is there any dues and don'ts as far as a student.
Is there any books I should read and or stay away from.
I am guess I should be reading things from Soke. And stay away from Mr. A. Kim.
And to all thanks for the...
I would say your best bet is to find a man that goes by the name Kuk Sa Nim on here or better known as Kuk Sa Nim Micheal De alba. He has trainned in many korean and non korean arts. And some times pops on here from time to time. He might best be able to answer your question.
Its funny that you say that. Because I did go to the Genbukan main site. And found a teacher that is an hour and fifteen min drive. I did email him a few times. But never got a responce. Lucky for me I just got a great job with a company that is base out of japan but also has a US HQ in MI...
I have all ready looked on google as far as training in
Genbukan or Bujinkan. But could not find anything so I thought I would ask you all if you know any thing as far as real teachers teaching in any of these orgs.
I will admit to not knowing much about either orgs. And am looking forward to...
I am with shesulsa on this one.
But to answer this one shesulsa
"So pick up a stick and try a few different approaches to its use. Who really cares where it comes from?"
The truth is that the only people who really care are the ones that try to compare who has the bigger (well ya know...
