LMFAO,

So somebody on Facebook mentioned that Andrew admitted it was fake, and then while looking for it I found this old RSF thread.

https://rumsoakedfist.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13046

Tom wrote:Mr. Nugent-Head later is reported to have said that (despite what is represented on the clip) the demonstration was essentially uber-cooperative and highly dramatized for the TV crew. "Faked" might be another way of characterizing it. Mr. Nugent-Head went on to train Yin style baguazhang with Xie Peiqi and He Jinbao.


Jonathan Bluestein (via Facebook) wrote: The western student in the video is Andrew Nugent-Head. Today, Andrew Nugent-head is a foremost authority on Classical Chinese Medicine. He also since then studied Yin style Bagua Zhang seriously with Xie Peiqi, and later He Jinbao. However, back in the day, in that video, Andrew was a foolish youngster who made a mistake in cooperating with this charlatanism. He later admitted it was all faked for the cameras.


I wanna see the recanting!

Bao you should interview him for your blog and ask directly so we can put the matter to rest!
