I have a freind of mine who is very accomplished in this art and teaches in his basement (you all know of him I am sure). I just sort of started playing with it and gradually, over time it became more and more of my central practice. Take djuru satu. I really didn't care about it. In fact i actively ignored it because I wasn't all that interested in the KTS. I was just doing it because I was there, and everyone else was doing it. I never even practiced the form. Then one day i was asked to show it and I just knew it. Not only did I know it, but I wasn't half bad with it either. I don't even know how that happened. I think in my case it's more accurate to say KTS found me.
I don't want to let go of my Shaolin system however, so I focus most on the stuff that directly over laps (Like the way both arts systematically disassemble the opponents structure). My study is mostly on gross concepts, ideas and positioning tactics.
I like the way the art engages better though. The Shaolin stands in such a way that you are a half step ahead of your opponent at all times. The KTS has you a full step ahead. It seems like a small thing, but it's really pretty profound in execution. It's the difference between not being able to stop a boxer's jab, and finding yourself in a deep horse stance with the boxer already down and caged and he's not really sure what happened.
