A Chen Routine by Chen Zheng Lei

Master Chen Zheng Lei was in our area, co-sponsored by our favorite Chinese martial arts magazine, and they generously posted this 5 1/2 minute piece of performance—a beautiful and meaningful demonstration.

Sifu Adam Hsu leads the whole room in a simple exercise that GM Liu reported he performed over 200 times a day; he recommended this two-move loop for improving all Kung Fu training. Note the esteemed teachers of […]

Why the Saber?

Ted Mancuso’s next book for Plum, adds the third to his four-book sequence on Kung Fu’s primary weapons. Saber can explode your understanding of the more advanced weapons. A firm grounding in the “4-S” (spear, sword, staff and saber) actually helps in your empty hand practice. Even more than some of his earlier books, Ted […]

A couple of weeks ago we posted two samples from Adam Hsu’s new DVD series on XingYi (here and here). The response was so positive that we’re continuing with our preview of the next DVD set on Tan Tui. You’ve probably heard the old quote (as a matter of fact, you probably have heard US […]

Favorites, Southern this time…

“Any favorites among the Southern styles?” This question followed my last piece on some of the style less-represented in VCD format. Of course, in the over 1500 VCDs (video compact disks) we offer there are bound to be some gems. I just wrote about some lesser-known Northern styles so, as Stan Meador suggests, I now […]

We continue to be excited about the new Adam Hsu DVDs coming from Taiwan. The word ‘thorough’, though possibly over-used by this writer, is an apt description of the instruction found in this series.
