Taiwan’s Kung Fu Heart

Porf Jou Kung FuFew “elders” in the art of Kung Fu give as much to their performance as Porf Jou (Jou Po Fu). We are definitely not talking about a sanitized, overly controlled performance, but one with a little grit and a large dose of character.

We ADD three new offerings to Plum From Sifu Jou, each bearing his inimitable stamp.

First is his very individual approach to Qigong, sectioning the body and directing the Qi in each quadrant. The martial component to this particular Qigong instruction is evident and welcome.

Next, follows a famous Mantis form from the Six Harmony Praying Mantis branch: Hidden Flowers. This is probably one of the more ferocious versions of Mantis you will every see.

Northern Mantis Sparring techniques finishes up this new batch with a systematized approach that incorporates contact, fast hand combination, and an authentically Kung Fu approach to the art of fighting.


Coming soon: much in the over-filled Plum pantry at the moment, but a quick glimpse reveals Sifu Adam Hsu’s newest on Bagua Zhang, a rebinding of two Lionbook classics into one text, TWO books on the use of the Ball in Kung Fu, and an unexpected entry from a late, beloved teacher. This is just a small part, so watch this space.
