    To be a real Chinese Martial Art School?

    1) To be a real Chinese Martial Art School. Does the name really matter I mean the name half Chinese Half Japanese. Like Shaolin Do, Shaolin Kempo, Shaolin Tsu Kempo, Karate Kung Fu Do, Chuan Fa do. ect

    2) To be a real Chinese Martial Art School. Do you have to learn the Chinese Terminology, that means not to use Japaneses Terminology.

    3) To be a real Chinese Martial Art Shcool. Do you have to use Chinese Uniform and not the japanese uniform. Because there are chinese Northren schools using Suothren uniforms.

    1.) The name is the most obvious indicator of "Chinese" authenticity.

    2.) If the terms are in Japanese, you're probably not learning a Traditional Chinese Martial Art. The names stem from tradition, you see? However it's not 100%. Just a trend.

    3.) Belted systems are not the norm of Chinese MA

    You'll have to do your own research as to whether or not it's a TCMA school/style. But here are some guidelines on what to look for:

    1.) TCMA originates from China.

    That's all there is to it. If their story sounds fishy, it's probably because they are trying to sell you the idea that they are a Chinese Martial Art.
    Becoming what I've dreamed about.
