Holy god this art is tough.
I just went to my first class in Wu Dang Quan today. It's one of those fluid Chinese martial arts that doesn't really look like much in a fight at first glance.

You will not friggin' believe how good of shape you must be in just to pull off the basics. I have good natural sense of balance, flexibility, I'm in fairly good shape, and have Jeet Kune Do experience.

I cannot hold a READY stance for more than 5 minutes.

There's another student who has 8 years Japanese martial arts experience, 4 years Muay Thai experience. He cannot keep his balance in basic movement exercises.

I've signed up for 9 months of this. It really makes every other martial art I've ever tried look like child's play.

kung fu
Master Lee, one of only 10-10 time black belts holders; he puts on a Chinese New Year every year and his school is where some of my friends go. I go to school at UNT with his daughter. He is awesome. I cant believe how amazing it is to see the shows. I recommend it to anyone!!!

I have just now received proof....
I have just now received proof that the master I'm studying under is the real thing.

During one of the positions in the movement exercises, my hand was at the wrong angle. The master walked past me, brushed a finger along the back of my hand. A blood vessel burst under my skin right when he did that. So with my hand at that angle, it was unbalancing the flow of blood, and doubtlessly the flow of chi/qi as well.
