    I have a good friend who is a student of Yu Dan Qiu of Fuzhou Minghequan. My friend is copping a lot of flack from other Russians who are pushing the bandwagon that Minghequan is not true White Crane and that only their lines of Yongchun Crane are the one true art. The interesting thing is they represent two different lines of Yongchun! I'd like to know your thoughts on this?

    Thank you for your question.

    In some cases a teacher can show that "he is the only one", but this is quite rare. There are also instances in which a teacher can show that his' the mainline, and this is more common.

    On the other hand, no Chinese martial art was created on krypton; Each system is unique--which means that it includes (at least some) information that no one else has, but there are still many similarities between different systems. I guess that the guys from the True One would have to explain what is it that distinguishes them form other systems.
