    It shouldnt matter, unless you have a particular system in mind. If you do, however, it matters worlds who your teacher is. As far as this thread goes, For me it would probably be enough that the guy spent significant time training in the shaolin system, and not so much that he be a "real" buddhist monk. People who have been lied to and conned appreciate that more tha people who are fortunate enough to not ahve gone through that.

    I'm still waiting for the poster of these e-mails to explain what the hell a real shaolin monk is supposed to be.

    I was speaking of the shaolin system of course and not any style...so it does matter witch teacher i would choose but i don't care about the real vs. fake thing...

    Why are people so crazy about shaolin monks If someone's hart is good, his kungfu is good and he's teaching very well, why should You care about real or fake monk ?

    That's the way I see it (doesn't mean it really is like that of course...)
    Shaolin monk = Buddhist monks inside the temple walls
    Shaolin warrior = Kungfu practitioners inside the temple walls

    Nooo ....forget the above thing...i don't care..and it's way too complicated for me


    By the way, if I say De Cheng is married in the beginnig of the 90's and they had a big party at the wushu guan with all of the 'monks' together to celebrate..and he has a child...no one would believe me right ?

    Shi Xing Du

    Iteresting to read this. I met Shi Xing Du this summer when I as at Shaolin. He was in town visiting his master. His English was quite good. He told me that he has living in England studying computers. I thought that it was odd that he was studying other topics but still concidered himself a monk. He did not dress like a monk but he introduced himslef as Shi Xing Du. He gave me his cel phone number and e-mail address and asked me to stay in touch. I found it hard to see him the way I saw the other monks.

    There is no real point to this I just found it all an interesting coincidence.

    Happy New Year!

    I'll qoute myself here:

    "For me it would probably be enough that the guy spent significant time training in the shaolin system"

    I get it, its not real vs fake monk I care about (although its always a plus to ahve a real monk, just because theyre a special kind of people), its real vs fake Shaolin Gong Fu i really care about. I'll respect someone who says "hey, im not a monk but i know/study shaolin kung fu and i like to teach".

    Niki- Shi De Shan rubs me much the same way. So did xing Wei, when i stayed at Doc's this past week. Again, this is going into the whole thing about defining what a "real" monk is. Its really more a matter of perspective thede days, especially with shaolin.

    as I thought, Frederic has nothing to do with Shi Yan Ming.

    It is possible he has trained at the USAST, as a regular student, but this individual does not have authority to teach anything from Shi Yan Ming.

    If this person advertises or says that he does, I would very much like to see it.

    ....and if the poster can not produce where Frederic made the claim, I would think he would do well to be more careful of what he is reporting...as that is rather misleading.

    yeah Dog I hear you man. You would not believe some of the bullsh!t that is out there, this guy saying this, this guy saying that...sometimes it is funny outrightly, like one guy asking me if some pasty sifu from NY challenged Yan Ming in a letter, written in Chinese no less...another variation was that Yan Ming told him he was going to the police to get a restraining order to keep the sifu away!! I mean maybe this happened to somebody else, who knows, but if it did happen the teller or the reteller got some wires crossed and some names mixed up cuz if there is one thing Yan Ming does not do it is front, truss...

    Shi Yan Ming does not know what a restraining order even is, the idea of him calling the police to get one openly makes me laugh. And you don't get one from the cops, you have to go to court...

    Usually when I see these posts I just shrug. I think a lot of people get told some sh!t and they don't do any due dilligence, but they have no problemo spreading the hoopla.
