It's all good, more power to Bruce and all.
I was wondering, though - for example, in his paoquan class, did you learn several different training exercises, etc., or was it rather lots of detail in the single paoquan form?
He seems very old school in terms of mastering one thing before learning the next - there are others who are like this, too. (Sometimes we get used to getting everything for free these days.) But yeah, his book The Power of Internal Martial Arts is the one I have - the first edition, though
A pity about the weapons, though - I saw a video of him demonstrating some bagua sword, I am sure his students would love to learn some of that, too!
