      LFJ, if you read my journals from years ago, you'll find that Xing Wei was fired by DeCheng back when I was working on getting visas for both of them.

      As DeCheng explained it to me, and as I had watched, it was an attitude problem. In fact, some of the pictures that led to his downfall are here on the site.

      DeYang has told me many times, that Xing Wei is not is student. Nor a disciple of his, or any one else as far as he knows.

      As with everything else in life, when you're looking for a purchase of any kind, caveat emptor.

        Thanks for replying doc.

        Yeah I saw that school out here but like Maestro said I'm looking for a school that teaches actual kung fu and not wushu.

        I guess I'm just out of luck as there's no real reputable place to learn kung fu out here in vegas. I saw that Shi De Yang has a lot of dvds for learning kung fu. I'm just going to rely on those to learn kung fu. While it may not be the best way to learn I guess it's really my only option.

            LFJ do u plan go Foshan? Maybe we could meet there as im in guangxi and guangdong...

            To go Shi Deyang interest me but western prices will b too much. I m married to chinese, i dont understand why i m diskriminated and have to pay western price. I think it is not polite. Kould u do something for me to have reasonable price? else i wont go.

              its not too difficult to extend visas while in china now. i know a few people who have been living in china for several years, traveling around and study gongfu in various places. how they afford it is another question.


              yup, i followed the story back then.


              i wont be going south this time. i'm just taking a group over to shaolin for a little while. as for the western/chinese price, its really only cheaper for poor families who have to put their kids up. i think its more than reasonable, considering everything included.

                      lfj, well no i dont think i would go if i dont feel welkomed.

                      I used to be philosophy teacher,i kan teach them for free but they dont seem to be interested

                      In greek philosophy people asking for money for teaching r kalled sophists and konsidered by sokrates,who never asked money nor did plato and the akademy, as korruptors of philosophy...

                      ming bai wo?

                        i do, actually. sometimes i have similar issues.

                        but one important thing you, and i, might consider evaluating more, is: whether or not people want the help. help is a relational; it's a two way street.

                        in this book i once read, this guy (chinese martial arts teacher) said, if you let me get close to you, in time, i can heal mostly anyone. (i may have mentioned this before) that statement always seemed very profound to me - on many levels...

                        i work with a lot of people, and i could help more if they'd just allow me to do my thing, but it takes trust. on one hand, i have to be willing to listen to the person to help them, even if i don't really like them. on the other hand, they have to trust that i won't hurt them, that i know what i'm doing, and listen to my advice, etc.

                        when someone says, 'thank you, you popped my hip back, i've had that problem for years.' etc etc... i say, ' well, thank you for letting me help you, or, thank you for letting me be of service to you.' these are the best responses i've found to date.

                        i mean, even if you really know what's best for others, have a proven track record, etc., how can you expect people to trust you if you push them to take your words for granted? and how can you be sure what you offer will be best for everyone?

                        peace and love...

                          yes u r right 1, i think, thank u.

                          considering the problematik and methodology of western philosophy and psychology, i have often found people not willing to learn

                          for instance in dali i had met this daoist master from wich i was willing to learn but i asked him if he wanted to study philosophy and he was not interested

                          later i opened the dictionary by random, i think, and i had XIU,study...

                          it takes year to study philosophy in its methodology and discussions (just think about the question of what is juridikal right)

                          same with psychology

                          i am fortunate enough not to ask money for that, but i feel reluctant to teach someone who doesnt give me anything but ask me for money to do some gymnastik

                          from what i know, for centuries, until around 80 BC, the akademy of plato was free of charge

                          peace and love
