    one question, what does trolling mean? maybe if i knew what i was doing wrong, i could try to fix it before it happens again.... you said no swearing, i stopped, you said no textspeak which i cant help due to my word limit and post restrictions but still i am trying to type better, you said no disrespect and so i show no disrespect in spite of being constantly insulted, but im trying arent i? and i will try not to troll - you have not seen any useless posts from me that are not related to the topic at hand, no jpeg images or ganging up on other MAP users, i try to be polite, i help when i can and admit when i am wrong, so what can i do to help you make it better? with that said, i have to go to work, so i will see you guys later

    You are so wrong about so many things that people think you're doing it intentionally.

    Whoops, here's the live action version.

    Mr. Cheung (who played Johnny Sun), according to what I read, was specifically asked to use Hung Kuen techniques in the film when fighting "Bruce".

    Wong Jack Man was not a Hung ga sifu, as far as I know. Nor did this fight take place in an arena as displayed in the movie..nor was Bruce Lee's back broken...and I don't think Bruce was ever quoted talking about Hung ga...which is odd considering its fame in China by the time Lee was born.

    I've always wondered whether his "classical mess" included Hung ga kuen. I don't think it did. But I think his wife needed a "classical" art to showcase Bruce's development of JKD. Just not sure why she decided to make up so made "Dragon" far from a biography, which is how it was portrayed...more of a fantasy piece.

    All true. But you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you're not going to get that. At some point, it shifts subtly from "trying to establish a context for this individual's comments" to "trying to invalidate this individual's statements by highlighting their refusal to put them in context." It's a subtle distinction, but it means the difference between honest inquiry and beating the ever-loving snot out of a departed horse.

    The context is this: A poster who makes incendiary posts refuses to provide a credible account of his qualifications to do so. So, given that, we should just approach his posts accordingly. That may mean simply ignoring them. I personally think that's better than letting the whole subforum get dragged down into the muck.

    Well, if you're looking for a style to embody the gung fu establishment, hung gar is a fairly obvious choice. It's time honoured. And they had a performer who could do it on screen. I wouldn't read any more into the decision than that.

    It's funny how in the old cinema, Hung ga was the "good guy" art.

    Nowadays, it's the art of the bad guys (Dragon, Fearless, Ong Bak). It's replaced Eagle Claw and Bak Mei. Once the protagonist defeats the Hung stylist, everyone knows he's legit...

    I think you're taking this way too seriously. Most of the viewing audience couldn't make that connection if their lives depended on it.

    I've watched way too many kung fu movies to be taken seriously, or take any kung fu movies seriously.

    If the ultimate test to establish the rep requires victory over a Hung brother it just shows what bad muthas the bruthas are!

    As to Lee,he did some Hung before WC.Glover wrote that Lee intimated that it hadn't gone too well for him using Hung in some dust up.I would think that would make him no older than 14 at the time,possibly younger.

    No more hints. You either name your instructor or don't.

    Stop playing games. You are merely hurting your own credibility by refusing to acknowledge your instructor.

    Invoking your instructor to lend credibility to your arguments, while refusing to name him only backfires on you. :rolleyes:

    But what does one expect? You have already changed the number of years you claim to have trained in WC and JKD several times on this forum.

    It has already been pointed out that the list of male Judoka with more than one Olympic gold medal is tiny, and none of them are police officers. You have lied, and you have been caught in your lies.

    well, the judoka i trained with wasnt mentioned at all, so i would have to strongly agree.... either i am flatout lying? or your information isnt entirely accurate.... i assure you, however, i am too busy to waste my time lying.... as for my information? eye witness

    I would be interested to know if the judoka you mention is listed in this link:
    which is the complete list of all Olympic medalists in judo.

    Literally amazing, either you got a most of those facts very confused, or your trolling.

    I declare shenanigans on you!

    robin101 Working the always shift.

    Hmmm maybe this person was lying to you, and they are actually not an olympic judo winner, or a cop. or maybe they are one or the other? either way it seems suspicious, I mean a cop, ex olympian, mma AND ninjutsu teacher sounds like a character from a novel rather than an actual guy. Considering Ninjutsu and things like MMA have quite.....different....approaches.
