    Training solely with media materials

    For the gang first..

    I was a student Of Shi xxxxxxxx here in the USA. Due to money,or the lack there of, I had to stop training. I have started using Shaolin DVD's and VCD's. Is this enough for continuing following the Shaolin arts?
    I was offered to come to Houston Texas and have my forms graded by Shi De Shan. This would be once or twice a year.
    Thanks for any thoughts on this,
    xxxxxxx

    it depends who you are. if you have good basics and you understand the skills associated with your art(in chinese arts they are all based on certain skills) then you can. really the forms arent that important, what you need is upkeep with humans so your timing and spacing and reactions etc are sharp, punching and kicking the air all the time is bad for your joints and if you dont know your system well enough your definately wasting your time.

    if i were you id just work the basic skills whatever they may be for shaolin temple gung fu, and work your foundation and your flexibility and find a new school

    My initial question to this individual was, how much was De Shan going to charge him.

    Oh, I am jaded and cynical.

    Still in CT Maestro? Who do you train with these days?
    Show me a man who has forgotten words, so that I can have a word with him.
