[quote=“ShrimpCrackers”]Hrm that sounds pretty good, is there a new hybrid art in Taiwan? If so what is it called then?
Also anyone have any other suggestions?[/quote]
Why does any future culture experience have to come from a past history such as the Han Chinese experience? It does not, and it should not for our purpose, which is the Taiwanese experience!
The only culture experience that matter is those that work in our present time, and those that are in touch with the future challenges. Mainlanders (Taiwanese or Chinese) are expert manipulators that’ll always force us to fall back on their Han Chinese culture experience! :fume:
If you are serious about real effective combat arts, then check out my partial book lists: Combat Skills for all Taiwanese Patriot. They are for people who comes to term with the reality of combat in their dynamic nature, which is fast and furious and most of all, unforgiving! :s
BTW, what is the purpose of your workshop? I highly suggest realistic goals such as promotion of Greater Taiwan; and if not, just have a fun time together for all the Taiwanese people!!
How old are those young Taiwanese Americans? If they are older than 18, you can buy some really cheap Ruger .22LR rifles for them to shoot with. This will help them more than wasting their time on legacy martial arts. If they are under 18, just take them on camping trips and so on! Remember, the key is to teach them self reliance, proud to be Taiwanese, and have fun in the process!!
PS. Mainlanders (Taiwanese or Chinese) are trying to erase our cultures and our languages for a long time. The truth is Taiwan don’t need a Han Chinese culture because there is already a place for that, which is called, ‘PRC’. ‘ROC’ is just another redundant and unnecessary name for the Han Chinese culture. If Taiwanese Mainlanders really loved China and their Chinese culture, what they should do is move back to their real home, which is PRC. Taiwan was not their home (before or even now), and these people certainly show it as far as my concern!! :fume:
