For those unaware, the launch of 36STYLES.COM is coming next week! This means we will be moving the forum to its new home. The new link to the forum will be https://www.36styles.com/kungfufandom ... bookmark it now!

The site as a whole, including the forum, will be down on Monday, March 2. To minimize the forum downtime, I plan on bringing the forum back online, even before implementing the new features, as setting these up will probably take some time. I will send out an email to all registered members once the forum is back up. 

Some exciting times are ahead for KUNG FU FANDOM!

    Come Drink With Me the most violent?

    Once did bodycount for Heroic Ones; 612... which means if Imdb's right with the running time of 117 mins (too lazy to check properly), it would be first on that list at 5.23 deaths per min... Chang Cheh smashes it.
  2. Yeah, I went, was much good fun, print's real nice. The film is pretty crappy, imo; that night scene in the brightest daylight is about as retarded as any filmmaking ever got, but the acrobatics & whatnot are next level. In fact there's soooooo much of it, it's almost easy to take for granted the feats they are pulling off. Good stuff. Pimpshuei bar very good.

    Fu Sheng VS Meng Fei

    FS was a hung gar guy, I'm certain he learnt properly, just got to know where to look for confirmation... From someone who's learnt from Lau family lineage he confirms a hell of a lot for me... More so than Chi Kuan Chun, who makes less sense to me from the way I've been taught... take that as you will.
  4. Chinese title means "Hung boxing kid" or "hung fist kid", as that's the style of kung fu Fu Sheng's character is using & that Fu Sheng & LKL did in reality... he demonstrates a number of main forms & styles of Hung fist style in the film... It loosely makes up one of 3 Kid films, followed by directly Chinese translated "Choy Li Fut boxing kid" aka New Shaolin Boxers, as in that he does Choy Lee Fut style; & then Chinatown Kid... Hong quan xiao zi is Mandarin; Canto would be Hung Kuen, then whatever word/expression they use for kid... don't ask me...
  5. Great thread, good read of great experience... was nice to meet you OAB, albeit very briefly.
  6. Cheers for the seminar pic Teako, that's what I wanted a gawp at. Hey Bob, yeah that was me, channelling my inner Roy Horan with the long haired beardy look, but instead just look like I'm having a hippy wig out moment as Hwang was laying out the badness... was trying to internalise it all I guess! Yeah, I should post more; I'm such a procrastinator with everything except training it seems... so many things I need to do to sort my life out... one day I'll sort those books even, no joke... will always love this forum & read time to time from work; should post more.
  7. Was a great opportunity to attend the seminar with HJL; I'm extremely appreciative of the guys who put this together setting that up... realised I'm not much of a kicker at all to say the least; us Southern kung guys don't tend to get our legs that high! Won't find a roundhouse in hung kuen, so don't ever train that stuff, & pretty useless with it - but with those few tips from HJL think I will now... Saw Hwang using relaxed circular & subtle figure 8 hip motion to power the legs, same way we do the upper half; movement's all holistic - got me inspired to try getting my legs up more! His technique is beautifully honed. Anyway, after the seminar everyone posed for a group photo; load of people snapping that one - really want to see any copies of those shots... anyone got one??

    洪拳武館 - Hung Kuen Mo Gwoon online series

    Maybe it's because I'm a hung kuen guy, but I'm a bit disappointed in the seeming lack of interest in this thread... Love what you're doing here Frank; part 2 was great... loved the way you evoked the old Kwan Tak Hing feel:, the training & discipline, the history, & most importantly the camaraderie between students. Hope you do more!

    Tragic. There's only a few folk you see & really know that they can properly fight & handle themselves without artifice. I think he was right up there. RIP.

    "The Spirit of Kung Fu" from Si Fu Leo Au Yeung.

    Hey, thanks guys; took some effort to put together, so glad that the movements & cinematography are appreciated. I think my brother & Si Fu have a tremendous amount of talent & potential together. Hey GHW, hope you can get a bit more understanding off these videos if you are trying to self teach. That sounds like hard work; where do you live? Do you have any good martial arts teachers in your area? I say that as I think that a trained outside opinion observing your movements can offer up insights I think are very hard to stumble upon yourself otherwise, & applications with partners are a whole 'nother thing... keep it up though! Well, Part Two is now up for the interested: Link: Cheers again!
  15. Hi folks, Over the past year or so my Si Fu Leo Au Yeung has worked with my brother filmmaker Patrick Watkins to produce a documentary covering his background of kung fu styles; "The Spirit of Kung Fu". I've helped out wherever possible here & there. With a look at everything from Wing Chun to the three treasures of Hung Gar Kuen to Choy Lay Fut & various weapons styles; with demonstrations, techniques & history looked at for all. This is the first part, covering Wing Chun. There is much more to come in the very near future. Part One: Thanks all!
