Exactly, this entire thread has gotten way off target, which alway seems to happen. Why cant people answer the question that is presented to them and leave it at that?

There are several online videos showing Shaolin-Do kata performance. According to certain groups of the Shaolin-Do Association, and various groups related to the Mullins' schools, these are not showcases for "authentic Shaolin-Do skills." Me, I've never sparred with an SD guy. I've talked with many, though. One actually didn't seem to like the Kool-Aid the SDA passes about.

Also, from my understanding of the SDA curriculum, you'll be getting many forms. And these forms will probably be taught differently by the online instruction than your instructor. So, my advice would be to not go by the online sources you find.

Cyborg Pounds the Morter, indeed.

(as an aside, I've never worked out with, trained with, sparred with, an SD student/instructor. There are no SD schools in Arkansas to my understanding.)

That's fine and dandy if you want to let me know of the fishy history of my style. However, I did not ask a question about it's history. I asked a question of the katas within the style.



I think it's fishy why you wouldn't ask your instructor. but the strict answer to your question is, no I don't know of any videos/books on this style....sorry. good luck.

I did ask my instructor, and because he had no response that's why I'm asking it on here. If I had the answer why would I need to ask it again?? Thanks for a straight-up response though, it's appreciated instead of having to argue about the history of the art after each response.

I don't know of any sites that have drawings or pictures of forms, but if you want to progress the best advice I can give is to listen to your instructor. He has been doing it longer, and can offer better advice than pictures can. Your sifu may have videos in his library as well. Also don't get too carried away with wanting to advance as quickly as possible. Instead of focusing on what color is around your waist, focus on what the form is doing. Just keep working on what you are doing, and soon you will be up to the "cool stuff". The sites that mention the movements in the forms will help you after you learn the form. But for the time being, focus on your material. That is the best advice I can give.

Yeah, I was mainly looking for stuff to reinforce the material from class. Do you take Shaolin in Hamilton, OH?

For the time being, yes. I joined the Marine Corps, so as of Sept. 26, I will only be able to go to class when I am home on leave (first leave being December 23). I will be taking my last test for awhile on September 25 down in Lexington. I am assuming you will be there testing for your yellow? Is your instructor Leonard, Sin The, or someone else?

I actually take it in Pikeville, KY. My teacher is Greg Charles, a 3rd degree black. Master Garry Mullins (8th degree) comes up from TN from time to time to give seminars and lessons. Actually, Greg just does belt tests at our dojo. Don't get me wrong, there are times when belt tests are done at Sin The's place as well. If they go i'll go with them though. I'll look for you there, what do you look like?
