I don't understand why everyone's up for bashing Shaolin. I've met GM Sin-The several times, and have been studying the art for three years. So far, it's been very useful in both mind and body training. As for the history, I fully trust the Grandmaster, whether people from other forms do or not. I am also a student of Ninjitsu, a form of Ninja training. So far, I am more fond of Shaolin-Do.
That's just my two bits.
And to the fellow who originally posted here, you say you study in Harlan? I believe, when there is a GM test (next one being in March and the last one in September), that your gym comes to my gym in Corbin for testing, no?
