Just to clarify exactly what I wrote about Christopher's claims regarding being trained in Kung Fu, I will post it again.
I am doing this in response to your posting, which states:
I was interested to read Lorenzettis comments that he was claiming to train in Kung Fu when he was younger.
...This is interesting as it might be relatively easy to pretend to have all sorts of psychic and healing abilities. Any new age fair will show you that! However it would be much more difficult to fool an already accomplished martial artist that you are yourself are a high end practitioner. The man defiantely has some sort of ability.
Maybe (and this is pure guess work) he found a Chinese internal arts teacher when young in NZ (More likely to find a Chinese person fleeing communist China I would have thought historically) and through Chi Kung type practices developed the powers he has demonstated.
... At the time Christopher was claiming to have trained in Kung Fu. He also claimed to me that he had been living in Tibet before attending Selwyn College.
and sorry, just to understand, at age 19 CH had claimed to you to have been trained in kung fu and had been living in tibet? did he demonstrate any skills in this area? did you think it was just a lie or fantasy at the time or did you take him seriously?
In answer to your question: I thought that Christopher’s claims regarding living in Tibet and being trained in Kung Fu were fantasy. It was the mid 1970’s – the things he claimed about himself seemed to be loosely based on the role played by David Carradine in a popular television series. I am not an expert, but I do not feel he showed any proficiency in Kung Fu, except in mimicry.
Further, in her post dated 11/20/2007, Elizabeth states that Christopher went to Mt Albert Grammar School (Auckland) before attending Selwyn College.
