i'm not aware of all the history behind your split, but i gather that it was sour. your entitled to keep that private, but it is my understanding that mr. cotter generally doesn't mention your name and instead mentions the late mr. xu. for that reason.
i should have been more explicit to say that mr. cotter trained under the lineage of mr. xu.
i've never seen any of mr. cotters xingyi, and i only said that his reputation was that of a bad ass.
i have however seen some of your videos, and though i have also heard that you were a full contact champion as well, being a good fighter is not the same as having good xingyi.
some of my training partners come from the lineage of kenny gong's shing yi, so i am familiar with it methods, and i did not care for your videos.
the gentleman in question was asking for advice and i simply offered my opinion, which is after all, just that. only my opinion.
i do apologize for offending you, i should have chosen my words better.
