    Get rid of the wu shu

    I am sick of wu shu and how the chinese government promotes it. Wu Shu artists are tainting the name of kung fu and are giving all our kung fu artist a bad reputation for being cowards and unskillful in combat. I say bring back kung fu to it's former purpose, to fight and defend regardless of how unpretty it may be and keep wu shu back where it belongs, a circus act and away from shaolin temples. Personally I hate what the government has done, now and the past with all kung fu, the government were cowards back then killing any true kung fu artists and to cover it all up they use wu shu clowns in their place and has been happening even probably to these days as well. Why fear kung fu, kung fu is dead and the human is living, fear the human if one fears anything.

    Sounds like you're not doing enough to uphold kung fu's amazing reputation as a fighting art. Go start a challeng match. Please.

    pazman, why do you have to instigate? your one of the oldest members why do you hate on the traditionalist?

    listen, wushu is gay. it takes alot to be good at it though, alot more then alot of americans will put up with, so i commend them being an american and all..ermm but anyway hes right

    traditional gung fu requires alot more strength of mind and body, to get the best results, this leads to more combat proficiency and more health, i wish there were more kung fu students like this guy

    Do it.. but, they are two seperate things... I respect wushu a lot, as a pure sport, and I think there is a place for it. There is also room for gung fu, in it's purest form, if you have a problem with it, don't do it.

    I'm not hating on the traditionalist, per se, but the pontificating tone that some people take toward wushu is a bit much. I myself don't particularly like wushu, I'm not good at it and I really do prefer the aesthetics of more traditional arts. That being said, I've never met a wushu player who thought they were actually learning a 'fighting art'. Honesty is a great thing...I wish more people would take a cue from athletic culture and learn to be more honest with themselves. I think (at least in America) the fat twaddles in black pajamas who claim to be 'kung fu masters' do more to hurt the image of kung fu than wushu athletes. Master worship, too-deadly-for-the-ring attitude, and general close-mindedness is gonna kill kung fu way before wushu ever will. I love the traditional arts, but if practitioners want the good reputation, they're gonna have to buck up and fight instead of complaining about girls in their silk pajamas doing kip ups.

    That image brings up nice memories...

    wushu is pretty gay, but then again I am a devout lesbian so it doesn't bother me that much...if a guy comes on the matt you just use it as an opportunity to take a leak or get a beer. You know he'll be over in like 30 seconds and a chick is never far away in the lineup.

    i think there are worse threats to traditional gong fu than wushu. anyway, what's not to like about hot asian chicks who can drop into a ****ing full split!!! I even like the way some of the non asian women look when they get all gussed out in the silks.

    i think paz said it best- where are the ill traditionalists...many of the traditional, as they call themselves, masters are pudgy white guys smashing weak ass bricks...

    one time I was in this traditional master's home, and Shi De Yang and SHi Yan Ming were there, and it was a party. After a bit, we retired to this basement the guy had finished up real nice, and someone asks SDY to do an old traditional form. Well it was ****ing gorgeous. Looked to me like an old mantis form, but you know monks, they get all crafty when you ask questions...

    But someone atthe party said it best when he finished the form- he goes, wow...that was so beautiful....but there is no one who would appreciate seeing that. Then seeing the wushu shit SDY put his name to in those vids here at Russbo, I was like Oh...My...God...this is not the same guy who was throwing punches and kicks around with me in the parking lot of Denny's!!!

    Obviously homeboy was referring to the general public in his comment and he was right on the money. The Daily News just came and did a report on us, and the photog really wanted something flashy out of SYM...who just pulled a bunch of strong lohan stances and says, with the kind of finality that makes you KNOW he is not a performer doing hat tricks for tin can money, "That's good yes?"

    Wushu is a double edged sword.

    It ain't going away.
