    Shaolin-Do Taiji and Bagua

    So Blaze this is why those of us who study other arts tend to look down on Shaolin-Do and what it claims to teach. His videos just say "Shaolin" but in at least one of the comments sections he says who his teachers are and they are all Shaolin-Do.

    Which one for you?

    http://www.gotoquiz.com/which_martial_art_is_right_for_you I got Kenpo, not really sure how it arrived at that. Some of the questions are pretty silly, and I'm sure a lot of arts are probably misrepresented by creator's understanding of them, but it's still fun. What did you get?

    Not losing weight, getting fitter

    So I'm somewhat overweight for my size and frame and I definitely need to lose some weight, but I'm less concerned with weight per se than I am with being healthier and more fit. I do MA 2-3 times a week and am doing P90X in the mornings (modified because you know, I'm not them, yet). I'm adding...

    Kajukenbo Black Belt Ranks?

    So, this question has come up a few time recently with some of the Chinese style MAists on here recently, and I thought I just ask directly. It seems that Kajukenbo uses Chinese terms for black belt ranks (Sibak, Sifu, Sigung, Sijo). In Chinese styles these terms mean very different things...
