Is Kung Fu Lineage Important?
The simple anwer to this question is yes and no. A kung fu practitioner's lineage does not determine their skill level, in fact there are many excellent kung fu practitioners that do not have any lineage at all. A verified lineage to China though will show that the practitioner has solid traditional training that has been passed down from the founder of their kung fu style.
