If you buy this movie and have a clue about the martial arts world you'll not be sorry.
very interesting to you.
I gave this video 4 stars because it was pretty informative and interesting, but some of the information was a little off.
I walked into the class full of energy and life. I mentioned how grateful I was to meet him and learn this special chi kung skill that I flew form over seas and even brought my girlfriend to learn. The 4 hour class were spent on watching him show off his stretching ability (it is impressive but do I need to pay for this?), then listening to him tell stories of how great he is ( example, how Billy banks is scared of him) Then we did some basic kicks and punches that you learn from any half ass wannabe kung fu school. Then class was over. I asked about the chi kung that was on the video that it claimed he practiced and said he would teach me.. He "said" its garbage, don't worry about it" I asked about his students in the video. He said "I don't know them, the producers of the video brought them in and they pretended to be my students" I asked about the white guy with the pony tail on his head. Both of you looked like you had a special connection between student and teacher. He said "no, it was all staged".
I was asked about the next class. I mentioned I had no more money and that I spent it all to fly all the way to Canada form South America and to bring over my girlfriend because you requested a partner. Grand MAster Pan then said "the next class is starting soon. If you don't have any more money you have to leave now" In shock and broken hearted I started walking out the door as requested but I was able at the last second to turn around and barley put the words together. In a soft and stuttering voice I asked ""linking energy chi kung? It was in the video...what happened ?" He gave me this look like he was going to kill me and he raised his iron fist in the air like he was going to hit me . Now I was even in more shock. Not only was I lied to by him and his assistant , but he was now physically threatening me to get out. I was in fear, stuttering, my heart broken and in the pit of my stomach :(
My girlfriend squeezed my hand and said I know your dream has just come crashing down but we have to leave now. Let's go !
So I left and for the next two days I ran over the sequence of event from that day in my head. I asked myself where did I go wrong.? Did I misunderstand something? It's not possible that a video like this would make things up and then have a kung fu legend go along with to make more money, is it? I asked my girlfriend these questions too. She confirmed that the answers to these questions was yes.
This video was very inspirational l for me, but on the Grandmaster Pan footage I can say they definitely stretched the truth. Maybe they did it also for the other parts of the video. I would wouldn't doubt it. Every once in a while I see this type of behavior in humans and it always blows me away. It's hard for me to understand how we put money above people and community to achieve our own shallow and greedy ambitions. Is it so hard to see that we are all interconnected? and what we do effects the other and continues into a chain effect? I forgive Grandmaster Pan for scamming me, because I know his greed causes him to suffer in great ways to blind him form seeing this. I forgive the producers of this video who went out of their way to do the exact same thing. I still feel a little sad about the whole thing but I learned a great lesson about life here. I hope you can learn from my mistakes :) All the best to you !!!
