Exactly. I'm also taking a private class from one of my friends who does several styles pretty soon too. He does Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun, Kempo, Tae Kwon Do, and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.

The reason that so many people call it shaolin DO is because when grandmaster Sin The' came to the US he brought the teachings and TRADITIONS of his teacher, Ie Chang Ming, with him. Ie Chang Ming taught shaolin kung fu in indonesia where chinese martial arts were illegal. In order to continue teaching he adopted the japanese uniform, belt ranking system, and added DO to the end. This was the chinese art could still be practiced and anyone looking wouldnt catch on. Sin The', out of respect for his teacher, merely carried on this tradition within his school.

Oh please...!
That's like disguising the origins of Chinese checkers by calling it Chinese squares.
I bet the Indonesian authorities really fell for that one.

I smell more bullshido!

Hate to break it to ya but as strange as it may sound to you that is what happened. Grandmaster Sin The' explained that himself. If you would like to disagree with him, by all means go ahead. Until then, I think I will take the grandmaster's word for it.

It doesnt matter to me whether you are a grandmaster or just some fat guy in his house that wants to argue with people on the net cause he has nothing better to do. You didnt understand something, I gave you the explination as explained by the grandmaster. If you still are not satisfied I'm sorry. You can get the phone number for Grandmaster Sin 'The off the net, call him and tell him your complaint. Perhaps he can enlighten you if you require further explination.

It seems that every post when someone asks something about Shaolin-Do all people do is scream "Bullshido". Who cares if the history of the art seems a bit sketchy????!!! All I wanted to know is whether or not anyone knows of a site, book, video, etc. which explains beginner's Shaolin-Do short forms/techniques. If all you can do is respond with statements you can't confirm to be true or not, then don't respond at all. If you want to run your mouths then call the Sin The' Gym at 1-859-275-2148 and direct your complaints directly to the Grandmaster.

I don't have a complaint, it's not my club. But when I hear a story of lineage of this kind, I state my opinion that it's a bit fishy.
Bare in mind that my own club split from an org. that gives itself lineage back to Kanazawa. Total bullshido. The "Kancho" trained with Kanazawa once and graded himself from 2nd Dan to 7th, so I know bullshido when I smell it.
You will do well to remember that other people, not just forum members, come to this site for information. It is the responsibility of all members to ensure that bad advice or mis-information is shown to be exactly that....
...Which leads me on to my last point;
Please be accurate in your insults.
It's BALD guy in his house that wants to argue with people, not FAT guy.

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.
