I got tipped off to the old EF from an old friend that was practicing Hsing Yi at the time... Info about "internal arts" were nearly impossible to find in Denmark at the time (still is), so it was an eyeopener.
It was just around the time when Sifu Z was huge... I cant forget seeing the pictures with the socks and the posings and the comments and jesus christ, I couldnt stop laughing for a looooong while... Writing this with a huge smile just from the memories of those pics...

Even though I dont post much I keep coming back...

So who is the guy in the blue shirt and why wasn't he given credit for being there

Hey Wayne, If it's the Asian chap in the green blue sweat shirt you're inquiring about, that's Shun Quan, he's one of Master gongs disciples.

The crowd back in the Empty Flower days was a bit more rowdy.

But I still feel a debt to Dave for getting this all together.

I wouldn't have met and crossed hands with half the people I know without it. And made some good friends along the way.

I just want to keep up my current role as the Steve Stiffler of the board. ;D

I can't remember when I found the forum but I think it was around 2006-2007. Iirc it was Tao Joannes who turned me onto it from a myspace group. I don't post as much regularly but I am busier than I was then, still learning and practicing though. The old days were awesome. Cheers to many more awesome days! -drink-

Who is anybody, really? What defines an identity? Email account access? Passwords? Screen names? Blood alcohol/thc/lithium levels? Can you take credit and/or blame for things you can't remember?

He's actually done a pretty good job of reducing the number of his pictures on the net to a very small number. I see that his "lijiaquan" dojo is still going strong...and goodonhim for that. If it gives him joy, then more power to him. I'll take the Z man over a Jake Mace any day of the week.

Wataahhhh!!!!

Looks like the same guy to me. I'd be interested in seeing a recent video. I remember the flood of various yang stuff way back when. I assume he was just getting started then. I also remember he was still happy to meet up and mix it up a bit with other board members like Bruce, too. That's always a good thing.

How kind of you to say.

Yes. same guy, I lost access to the email account I used for the TaoJoannes login and also wanted to put a little bit of distance between my current self and some of the shenanigans I confessed to publicly previously. I've got a real job now, couple of babies and a wife and stuff.

I'll see if anybody is okay with being filmed during push hands this weekend, if ya really wanna peep my sweet moves.

In full disclosure, I thought THIS was B**an's bullshit community at first. It's been a while, memory is faulty. I remember joining both just to stick with whichever won and was more fun.

Also, I like being anonymous, dammit.

I contacted David because I noticed he was using one of the photos that I got from my teacher (Jiang Rong Qiao and Dong Xiying in a fighting pose) in his first version of the Xingyiquan section of his personal page. He had a small forum back then, too. I told him I could send him more pictures and add info to his articles. He was just beginning XYQ at the moment. He told me: "Hey, what if we just grab all this and do like a Xingyiquan Encyclopedia?"... 16 years ago. Damn.
