    Xing Wei's Kung fu Chan school in Las Vegas?

    Hey, I've been looking around for a good kung fu school and I found Xing Wei's school out here in las vegas. I saw that the owner of this website helped start the school when I was searching on google.

    I went down there and signed up a couple months ago. But I just found these forums and I was reading around, apparently Xing Wei screwed over the owner of this site.

    I don't want to start up anything bad that I'm not supposed to but is Xing Wei's school any good?

    At first I thought it was really cool to be at a school with an actual Shaolin monk but I get kinda queasy thinking about someone who is supposed to be a Shaolin monk turning his back on someone who has helped him. I think I've read something about one of the directors at the Shaolin temple being angry at this behavior. It doesn't really sit well with me you know?

    Is the school still a good school? Or are there other schools better than Xing Wei's in the Las Vegas area?

    I mean good as in if the curriculum isn't wushu but traditional kung fu and if there might be a better instructor in the las vegas area.

    and I would define a better instructor as someone who knows a lot about traditional kung fu, both the application and the whole spiritual side behind it , but also has some integrity at the same time.

    I guess I'm asking would anyone here choose Xing wei's school over any other kung fu school in las vegas?

    lol, im sure doc wrote a blog or im sure theres a thread or something ive never been the best at navigating this site but i been coming here for 10 years!! isnt that crazy just saying that..wow

    anyway, what the deal was in SHORT doc took alot of time and effort and money gettings xing wei visa to come here, honestly this went on for it felt like years he was always saying the monks are coming but then this happened or that etc so anyhow, xing wei got here and doc put him up in his house which if you see pictures of it is very nice!! he also paid him and everything and as far as i know made him chief instructor or whatever of his school

    then yknow basically what you said, xing wei screwed him, told the students whatever he told em, a bunch of bs as far as i know, anyway thats how i remember it via this forum i wasnt there also

    as for instructors of shaolin or any chinese martial art that are as good as your asking for are very very FEW and far between. sadly, alot of people think theyve found something good even if it is traditional, it probably really isnt TRADITIONAL lolo, yknow what i mean?

    i could write about your question for a long time but in the end, a good teacher is like a needle in a haystack

    Well, i have the l of same problem in finding good philosophy students.

    People just have no idea of what is philosophikal method, logik and discipline.

    No?

    to be honest, it seems like xing wei teaches the forms but he doesn't teach the theory behind the forms or application at all. When I signed up I wanted to learn the whole buddhist philosophy and actual application of kung fu along with the techniques, but at xing wei's school they'll just show you the form and say "ok. you do" and then walk away. I think i read an article where the doc said that he didn't bring xing wei out to teach the application and theory behind the techniques. I know that xing wei used to be on a demo team, but it seems like that is all he teaches. The demonstration stuff.

    Since you guys have been around, do you know if xing wei has always taught this way?
