Jason Leland Adams,
The martial arts in the show is Ba Gua Zhang (Eight Trigram Palms) and it is not shown correctly on the show. At least not in the fight scenes. But I do like how they don't use wires and do impossible flips and moves. It IS a realistic view of martial arts even thought Camera Tricks are used. The moves on the show can actually be done in the real world. Russell Wong (vanishing son series) though is not a "master" of any form of martial arts has done enough fighting stuntwork and choreography to pull off being the teacher and overseer of the school. The kids are faced with real life problems such as Child abuse, obsession, crime, etc... I have heard that the WB has cancelled the show only four eps into the six that were first ordered. I think it's a huge mistake on there part. THe show has the potential to be the WB's next Dawsons Creek if they developed the characters right. Overall I give the series a 9/10. I'd recommend it to anyone.
