You did, most certainly, insult Master Yang Jun, even if only indirectly, by inferring that his families TCC is not adequate due to being "watered down" and that his teaching skills were less than stellar by proxy of your not seeing anything "amazing" on the first day from his teachers.
You not only insulted the Master with these insinuations, you insulted his entire extended family, of which I and several others on this board are part through ties of blood and spirit.
His family ties back in, intimately, with the Wu family and many others who are their disciples (which, in case you didn't know, is a type of extended family network). So when you insult the TCC of the current sixth generation lineage holder of the Yang family, you insult the entire family, including their disciples and all of thier family members and descendants.
And by doing so you included me and Polaris, at the very least, in the insults you expressed on this board. To which we have responded.
It's a perception thing.
You came on here and espoused a theory that, while widespread, is demonstrably untrue. And your attitude is appalling, to say the least.
I would not train you. I will tell you that right now.
You are, in all honesty, one of the few people on this planet I would pointedly ask to leave my class if I knew who you were.
I know now, with no question or hesitation, why it is that you cannot receive what you would consider adequate training in the fighting applications of TCC. There's simply no mystery left for me.
With your expressed attitude there isn't a qualified TCC instructor that I know, or have ever heard of, who would teach you any of the "real deal" that you say you so wish to learn.
The worst part? You will now take this as a personal attack, which is good because it is, and flounce off without having learned what everyone here, and obviously some poor souls who are teaching out there in Washington, seem to not be able to get across to you.
You will most likely never be trained in the "real deal" of fighting with TCC, because you don't have the proper attitude.
No one, absolutely no one, would ever expect you to "beg" for the secrets of TCC. That's not how it works. You can't beg for the secrets, you have to work for them and part of that work is to display the proper mindset required for learning this art.
Even if you got on your knees and begged humbly of a thousand TCC Masters that they teach you the secrets of TCC, not one of them could even if they wanted to. And that's because of your mindset.
TCC is more mental accumen than physical. I will give you that "ancient chinese secret" for free, so you may see that no begging is required to learn the profound secrets. That is one of the most profound secrets of our art and now you know it, and it didn't cost you a thing.
Understand this, if nothing else: Your attitude IS your TCC, more surely than any other part of you.
If you do not exhibit the proper attitude you will not be able to properly learn TCC, this is fact. So why would a Master, or even a decent teacher, waste his time training you?
Does that make sense? Was that clear enough for you? Do I need to elaborate further?
Since you seem to be a touch arrogant about yourself, "And even more wary of somebody who said they had to wait to 'check out my character'", you will not find anyone who would be willing to teach you anything you could use to cause harm to yourself or others.
Does this make sense?
I hope so.
You will get no further response from me unless you moderate your tone regarding our art and the current Masters thereof. Just as you will have a long, hard row to hoe in TCC if you continue to approach it with the attitudes you have expressed here.
With this attitude, you would do well in a hard style. I will make my last suggestion to you by saying: Do that. You'll be happier, much happier, there.
When you get some maturity on you, and you begin to understand the meaning of the expression "the more I know, the more I know that I don't know", then come back.
Then, we'll be glad to have you.
