    The whole concept of these schools using the shaolin name is actually going to be a topic for discussion, as I've gotten some interesting emails about it, and have a lot to say.

    Once I get the new site online. Hundreds of pages. UGH. Any day now...

    The JKD club looks good. Plus there's no harm in trying out school for free for 30 days. I would definitely look into it.

    http://www.urbanmartialarts.com/indexUMAnew.html is the site of the place that does JKD and a few other martial arts.

    I'm just going to take Fa Hui's advice, and not sign up to that school. Unlucky for me, it's the only school in leicester I think.

    I asked my friend about the JKD club @ st johns that does free style karate n other stuff, and he said to me it's an ok club. He's been doing karate for years now, and is black belt dan 2 (15 years old). So i'm going to go with a few mates who wants to try JKD, and see what it's like.

    I'll reply here, tell you guys what the club was like (JKD not shaolin).

    Who's teaching JKD?

    The problem with JKD is that it's a philosophy. Although that in itself is not a problem, the problem lies in the fact that JKD principles are meant to free you from style. This precludes that you are to have a style to be freed from, which lies the inherent problem in choosing a martial art such as JKD. Most likely they'll be teaching some form of ecclectic kickboxing and possibly FMA. Also check out the instructor yourself, if he or she seems qualified to both teach and use what he is teaching, then it might be worth it.

    I personally would stay away from that "Shaolin" school. But that's just my opinion.

    Go for the trial lesson. If you like it go for it and let us know your perspective.

    I just get cranky when I see Kenpo Gis and Belts for teaching Shaolin.

    Studying Shaolin for over 40 years now with a large amount of time spent in Asia.

    Hey,

    Is there anything wrong with this club?

    Me and a few friends want to sign up to a martial art, and have narrowed our choices down to either Shaoling kung fu or Jeet kune do as both of these are in our areas.

    The site looked OK to me, but these comments here makes it sound like the clubs a fake.

    Also, what are your thoughts on JKD?

    Thank you for a good laugh

    Dave,

    thanks for making my day. I needed a good laugh.


    Let's see here:

    Master at 16 means that he is now the great Poobah.

    Whats really quite amusing are the images of the teachers. Looking at there postures there is one thing coming to my mind:

    If I would have done something like this for presentation purposes with the Da Mo Yuan or Shi Wang Heng present, I don't think it would have gone down too well for me.

    As for some of the other claims there. Do like the monks do. Just smile...
