Paul Koh Interview Part 2: On Masters and More

This is Part 2 of a 4 part interview with Sifu Paul Koh, who has recently published a series of beautifully designed books on traditional forms. Although we know Sifu Koh to be a thoughtful teacher and good writer, we were delighted by the unexpected depth and breadth he applied when addressing our questions. Since the interview is lengthy, we decided to print it in 4 successive parts—this being the second—but for those who want the read the entire interview as a whole, without waiting for the separate parts to appear, you can download it here.

 

In your time, you have studied with some great Masters. How do some of those early experiences compare with how you teach, and students learn, today?

Yes, I have had the honor and privilege to be taught by some of the best Kung Fu masters. It’s a humbling experience because trying to live up to the quality of their skill level and teachings has always been something in the forefront of my mind. The early experiences training with these masters has definitely left an indelible mark on me in many good ways and in some not so good ways. Training with these Sifu was thrilling and exhausting at the same time because the requirement that they established for the aspiring student to achieve is high quality and pristine execution of every single movement that I found, as a youth, so exacting, so particular, so focused and disciplined almost in a perfectionist kind of way that I couldn’t wrap my mind around it. That did leave a big impression on my teenage mind, and it’s carried over and never left. It’s a yardstick that I use to measure myself and my students by and I routinely fall short of it. This attitude of trying to perfect one’s technique is one thing towards your own personal training, but does, in this modern day and age, make teaching more difficult, because, as some would say, you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. I understand this concept, but, for me, not having that hardcore, old school challenge put in front of me may not have allowed me to get to the stage that I am today. Now, I do see the value in it. That old school mentality had a purpose. It ensured that those that learned and learned properly would be able to maintain it and have it for the remainder of their life, and those that couldn’t, would be weeded out. It’s very plain and simple. Kung Fu is a very unique art that cannot mass produce high level practitioners as other arts do.

I feel that the old school training is more about diamonds in the rough. The concept of Kung Fu training was aptly explained to me by one of my teachers using this example. How do you create a diamond? Lots and lots and lots of pressure over a really long period of time, and then, a lot of those presumed chunks of coal that go through that pressure crack and never make it to the diamond stage. Even those that make it to the diamond stage have to go through the selection process of clarity, color and carat. Once all those parameters are met, then you still have to get cut, polished and set. So, from a pile of rocks, how many of them actually end up becoming a real, full-fledged diamond that is worth millions? Very few. That’s the process which students learning Kung Fu go through. You can come back to me and say, well, wow, if that’s the case then why should I even bother? I’ll just go do something easier. And you have that choice, but that’s the crucible that we were put through. Every class was rough. Every class was hard. Every class, you were sweating buckets, and the higher you rose in rank and ability, the more you got crapped on. In every class, you had to asset your willpower. Never knowing that severity of discipline coming from a relatively loving homelife was a shock. There’s much to be said about that discipline and getting that in certain formative years leaves quite an imprint on you. Read more →

Southern Kung Fu Makes An Entrance

Five Element FistSouthern Shaolin Tiger Claw: Principles of the TigerSouthern Shaolin Immortal Crane FistFierce Tiger Iron Hammers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fu Jow Pai Sifu Paul Koh has just released 4 new titles, and we are excited!

These new books are beautifully done, and add English language instruction to the Southern Kung Fu canon, which is always in need of traditional material. The books, all found HERE, cover Tiger Claw Principles, an Immortal Crane routine originally from the late Sifu Paul Eng, Five Elements Fist, and, possibly, the first book in English on the Iron Hammers. Each book also details basics and qualities associated with their respective subjects.

In anticipation of the books, we asked Sifu Koh some questions, and his worthy replies (see below for the first part) will roll out in 4 parts over the next few weeks. Don’t miss this!

Interview with ‘Fu Jow Pai’ Sifu Paul Koh, Pt. 1

When we learned that Sifu Paul Koh was setting off on a new publishing venture, to bring out a series of beautifully designed books on traditional forms, we asked if we might interview him, to expose a few more of our Plum followers to his Tiger Claw system. Although we know Sifu Koh to be a thoughtful teacher and good writer, we were delighted by the unexpected depth and breadth he applied when addressing our questions. Since the interview is lengthy, we decided to print it in 4 successive parts—this being the first—but for those who want the read the entire interview as a whole, without waiting for the separate parts to appear, you can download it here.

 

Is Bo Law Kung Fu a branch of Fu Jow Pai? If so, what is the relation of Fu Jow Pai to other Southern “Hung” styles?

Bo Law is my name that was not only a translation but also given to me by my teacher. It’s actually rather significant because the term Bo can be translated into something precious or a treasure, and Law translates into an arhat or a disciple that preaches the message, so it’s very suitable because it’s my task to preach this treasure of an art that I’ve been privy to. Traditionally speaking, the separate mo gwoons, many of them are named after their teachers. People often misunderstand, thinking the name of the school is having something to do with the system or style being taught. It’s just a name, like Gold’s Gym or Equinox Gym. In the Chinese tradition, many times they will put the Sifu’s name and call it “Joe’s Kung Fu” or “Tom’s Kung Fu.” In this instance, it’s the same. So, the name of the school is Bo Law Kung Fu, but since my early teens, I’ve been training exclusively in the Hung Family System and the Tiger Claw System. A lot of people make that mistake thinking that Bo Law Kung Fu is some kind of an offshoot, but BLKF is the name that represents my school. I teach the Kung Fu that was taught to me by my teachers. Too many people get caught up with systems and styles and names and lineage, which are all fine and well and necessary to a certain extent, but in the end, it boils down to the same thing. These different systems and styles are paths of enlightenment that should serve to awaken the individual martial art student and take them to a certain level of realization. Read more →

Tid Sin Kuen, Almost HERE!

Tid Sin Kuen (Iron Wire Fist) Lam Chun FaiTid Sin Kuen (Iron Wire Fist) is one of the hallmark ‘internal’ forms of the Hung Gar system, and we were excited when we first started representing Sifu Lam Chun Fai’s beautiful text on our site a few years back. Lam Sifu, son of Lam Cho, has produced three fine books in his lineage, Hung Kuen Fundamentals and Kung Kuen Training (all available on Plum).

The Tid Sin Kuen book has been out of print for at least a year but, happily, has found a new publisher in Plum, and will return to our shelves in about 2-3 weeks. This version, unchanged in content, will have the added advantage of a downloadable video demonstrating the sounds made when practicing Iron Wire, rather than the inserted DVD, allowing easy playback no matter where you are in the world.

Of course we will announce the arrival of the book on Kaimen, but if you would like to be notified in addition, just click here.

Of course, this is just the start of a great season of new additions at Plum; we’ve got a new batch of colorful books from Paul Koh (plus an exceptional interview); some unseen gems from China (including texts on Shaolin, White Crane, and Xin Yi Liu He); and, of course, our newest Plum project on Bagua Zhang. It’s going to be a good summer at Plum.

Li YaXuan’s Legacy: A Beautiful New Book

Li YaXuan

Legacy of Grandmaster Li YaXuan

We have a few more new books to announce in the next few days, but this one, The Legacy of Grandmaster Li YaXuan, is so beautiful we thought we would give it its own space. Lionbooks has released a comprehensive collection of writings from Yang Style Taijiquan Grandmaster Li YaXuan. Lionbook publisher, Liu KangYi, is a collector himself of martial texts, and is well-known for the quality, attention to detail, and loving care he puts into each title. Even at that, every once is a while he surpasses himself.

Lionbook’s earlier titles on Li YaXuan are all well-done, and included interpretations from Master Li’s daughter and son-in-law. This new collection is a compilation of Grandmaster Li’s own writings.

We have a limited number of copies, but will get more soon if we run out.

Two Great New Books

We’re working through a tall pile of new Chinese books, and here are the first two:

Kung Fu Fighting Technique

Chen Family Martial Arts Experiences

Chen YiMing‘s Chen Family Martial Arts Experience takes a geometric look at fighting stances and approaches. We’ve seen a few books over the years that include some aspects of this, but this all-color text is dedicated, start to finish, with analyzing fighting technique.

Southern Shaolin 5 Elements 8 Directions Stick

Southern Shaolin 5 Elements 8 Directions Stick

Traditional Southern Shaolin 5 Elements 8 Directions Stick is one of those books that we love: first, a good stick book is always welcome, but this one is very generous with its photos and instruction.

Coming soon: Li YaXuan!

A Brief Lesson on Reeling Silk Energy in Bagua Zhang

In this short response to a video sent to us by Steven, a Bagua student, Ted Mancuso briefly describes one of the most—if not THE MOST—important elements of Bagua Zhang: reeling silk energy, or Chan Ssu Jin. Reeling silk energy is in the DNA of all of the traditional Chinese martial arts, but is particularly evident and promoted in Bagua Zhang, with its continuous circling movements.

Sorry for the background noise and sound quality—we filmed this spontaneously after watching Steven’s excellent video.

Tai Chi Training Secrets: How Do You Practice Martially, When You Are By Yourself?

A recent letter from one of our favorite correspondents, Gary Shapiro, put the question: “We spoke about how practicing taiji with the martial aspects in mind enhances it’s health effects. So— how does that work?  Can one practice “martially” solo? (and how?).”

In our newest video, Sifu Ted answers this and offers some training tips for integrating martial aspects into Tai Chi practice.

Young Forest, Traditional Skill Northern Shaolin Vol. #2

Wing Lam on Northern Shaolin (Bak Sil Lum)Plum is experiencing a plentiful Spring this year, starting with the reappearance of Sifu Bow Sim Mark’s early works; then the masterful new edition on White Crane from GM Lee and Master Bernard; and now the long-awaited second volume of Shifu Wing Lam’s compendium on Northern Shaolin (Bak Sil Lum).

Although there is much here to gain for any traditional Chinese martial artist, Northern Shaolin practitioners in particular will be pleased to see discussions and names for the ten traditional hand sets, not to mention several weapons routines. There are also sections on techniques and methods not commonly known.

We applaud the influx into martial literature of the teacher sharing more personal insights and approaches. Youtube can deliver 10,000 performances, but the more intimate thoughts and details inherent in a lineage are still relatively absent. Books like these are welcome and needed.

To get a more comprehensive look into this book, CLICK HERE for the Table of Contents.

NEW! Authentic White Crane Kung Fu Book

In traditional Kung Fu, we often talk about the shape of an Art, although that shape cannot always be easily defined. It might include a short list of specific qualities, a couple of hard-won principles, certain approaches to its qigong, methods learned from its secret songs…It is elusive and typically closely-held. The experienced eye might detect it when it is present, but it is uncommon to know its many aspects.

Which is why we are especially excited to announce the arrival of the new book on Flying Crane Kung Fu from Grandmaster Lee Joo-Chian and Master Lorne Bernard. Grandmaster Lee, who died in late 2020, has given the Kung Fu world a real treasure: a generous look at the elements that make up this family system, one of the original branches of the White Crane system. He and Sifu Bernard have gone to the heart of the style, telling the old stories and offering insight into this traditional martial art, from breathing patterns to staff fighting techniques. They have included the formulas and verses that were previously secret, the songs that tell how to think about an art. The photographs alone are worth the price. It is truly a remarkable work.

We could go on, but you can read more HERE, as well as get a good look at the breadth and depth of this book through its Table of Contents.

Highly recommended!

Sifu Bow Sim Mark

I believe that I first saw Sifu Bow Sim Mark perform at Brendan Lai’s 1984 All Master’s Kung Fu Demonstration in San Francisco. Those were the pre-pre-youtube days and, other than pictures of her in the Kung Fu magazines, I had never seen her movement.

I—along with the friends who accompanied me that night to watch one incredible master after another—never forgot the feeling of seeing her on stage doing Fu Style Tai Chi Chuan, and a beautiful sword set: flower in her hair, elegant, powerful, spirited, martial.

When Plum started, her books were some of the few early entries in our catalogue but, as time wore on, they became more difficult to access. Now, we are so happy to announce that they are back in stock, along with many titles that we were never able to get (for instance: Broadsword, Dragon Fan, Combined Internal Chuan, and a terrific collection of Basic Wushu Exercises). These are the original first and second edition texts. Sifu Mark is generous with the number of her photos and most, although written in english, carry the Chinese characters for the names and instructions for the moves, as well as other parts of the text.

We hope to expand the collection if more become available, but for right now, check out the 8 titles we have just added. We have a very limited number of Rooting Pine Chi Kung books, but hope to get more in the future.

From Basics to Mastery: Jibengongs and the Bear Palm Gong in Bagua

As we have mentioned (more than once, I’m thinking), I am working on a new book/dvd project on Bagua Gongs, those special exercises that teach by principle and really infuse your practice with the flavor of your style (in this case, Bagua Zhang).

The project keeps growing, and looks like it is veering into one book accompanied by THREE DVDs! Well, at least that is a good excuse for why it is taking so long to finish. Anyway, here is a short video on a Gong that is NOT included in the book, but is nonetheless important as well as fun to practice.

Recommended Seminars

Ken CohenAs a longtime teacher, I do not get much opportunity to actually be a student myself. So I was delighted to be invited to take a seat (well, take a stance) in Ken Cohen’s recent online zoom class on Yiquan.

Cohen Shifu is all that one could hope to find in a teacher; everything from his research and experience with authentic teachers and material, to his unique presentation which is lively, understandable, and generous.

Especially if you are pursuing classes on Qigong or Yiquan, I would highly recommend Ken Cohen. One positive thing that the lockdown has given us is the expansion of high-quality online instruction, and you could definitely benefit from taking this advantage through some of Cohen Shifu’s courses.

Two Paths, One Road

Praying Mantis Fist (TangLang Quan) is a famous style with a distinctive hand position known as a “Hook.” Although I shouldn’t write “a distinctive,” when, actually, this famous style has TWO versions of the key hand style, each to represent the same special hook shape for the hand.

The first and most iconic version starts with all the fingers—including the thumb—pointing down, aiming to the ground, with a downward fold at the wrist. This famous hook ends with the palm drooping, until it is time to strike; a great shape for Chin Na practice. 

Praying Mantis Fist

Edge Hand

The other rendition also points to the floor but is based on a different model. The difference lies in anatomy. This formation removes the downward droop at the wrist, leaving the palm of the hand facing your own centerline. This simple difference in shape results in a modified approach to usage. For instance, the side drop aims the fingers down, into the opponent himself. When it comes in contact with another wrist shape, the outside of the pinkie cuts like the edge of a saw (which, come to think of it, is also serrated.) The wrist lock can create more holding strength but also, possibly, makes the second method more susceptible to Chin Na attacks, in the correct hands. The first way is easier to form, the second feels more secure. Read more →

Year of the Metal Ox: Narrye Caldwell’s Annual Outlook

One sure thing: as soon as the calendar page turns from December to January, we start to get inquiries about when people will see Narrye Caldwell’s post for the Chinese (Lunar) New Year. Well, here it is! As always, enjoy.

 

Year of the Metal Ox—February 12, 2021

Let me start with a true story. Twenty years ago we had a presidential election that was too close to call. Everything hinged on a razor thin margin in Florida that showed George Bush leading Al Gore by a mere 537 votes. State law required a recount. A month of legal battles ensued, and finally a Supreme Court decision stopped the recount in Florida. This resulted in Bush winning the presidency with 271 electoral votes, one more than required, in spite of losing the popular vote by a significant number.

That winter I attended a Chinese New Year’s talk by one of my teachers, Lu Ming. Ming’s talks were always sprinkled with stories and clever insights. And this is what he said, with a sardonic
chuckle, about the election I just described: “If it had been a Rat year, every vote would have been counted.”

Well, here we are. The election we just had is the one Ming foretold. It happened in a Rat year, and yes, every vote got counted. This past Rat year brought much hardship, which there is no need to review here. But the one silver lining is, “in a Rat year, every vote gets counted.”

Overview of the year

First let’s talk about the Metal Ox. Ox qi is associated with the long view. The Ox is a yin Earth sign, so patience, endurance, constancy, and persistence are its superpowers. Remember that, because though there is much to be done and the world is in a frightful state right now, the new qi coming in with the Ox year brings the strength required to shoulder burdens, take on the necessary work, and keep our eyes on long term solutions.

Each year’s astrological signature is made up of the combination of heaven qi—which is Metal this year—and the Earth qi associated with the animal sign—in this case, Earth. From the traditional Five Phase view, Earth nourishes Metal so we have a harmonious energetic quality to the year. Think of it this way—the stability and constancy of Earth, when unobstructed, can transform base metal into gold. We have an opportunity now. Through hard work and sound judgment, we can recover what is precious and lies buried deep within us. So, noses to the grindstone, all.

Now for the fun part. Here’s a quick look at how each animal sign can best utilize this year’s qi. Read more →

Dispelling Some Myths

Sifu Lorne Bernard reminds us to be thorough in our consideration of the Arts,  and to think reasonably. Don’t be duped! Here are 11 great points to set you on your practice.

Time to dispel some myths and have some fun!

Misinformation and lack of understanding have affected all spheres of human activity since we have been recording it. Those who know about various subjects often just shrug when they see how the masses often misinterpret events or misunderstand issues.

In the martial arts, this propensity to stereotyping and believing without proper research leads to good people being duped by false claims, fake histories and silly demonstrations of supposed skill. I write this mini-article to educate, perhaps with a little friendly nudge or a wink wink emoji type feeling, rather than out of malice or some other negative mind set. If you are easily offended, then that is on you and all I can suggest is that what offends must hold a grain of truth.

Again, my intention is not to offend but to hopefully instill the desire to analyze and reflect upon some issues related to the martial arts. So here is a friendly set of things I’ve always wanted to share. As I get older I esteem it is now time to do so and have a chuckle at the same time.

1- If you keep learning different martial arts, and always choose the latest exotic art that no one else has ever heard of, you may be an attention whore.

2- The old saying that “All martial arts come from shaolin” is silly and historically ridiculous. This being said, many systems do come from shaolin, hence the famous saying.

3- If a system is many generations (more than 6 generations) old, it is very unlikely to be identical to what it was at the beginning! People change, misinterpret, add, evolve and forget! 1Kun g Fu Shoulder Training @plumpub.com

4- Good traditional martial arts styles are living entities that progress all the time. If they become static, then they lose effectiveness. Experimentation ought to be encouraged, as well as hard study to understand the style’s true essence and essential techniques.

5-All schools expound the virtues of their art and technique. It’s called business. Now you know.

6- There is nothing new under the sun. It’s all been done before, you just did not know it!

7-The only master who never ever lost a fight is the one who never had one!

8- If everyone’s account of an event differs from your own…you might want to re-examine your beliefs. In other words, don’t be like the mother who notes how all the soldiers are walking off beat except for her son.

9- If you expect a fight to look like a kung fu movie you will be sorely disappointed. I will not stand there posing in a cat stance with a crane beak strike frozen in space so you can see it!

10- If you expect to see many of the moves and positions from traditional systems in actual combat, you will be disappointed. They are being used alright, it’s just that they are executed quickly and differently than the forms. For example, in wing chun they say one should ever see the Bong sao. In the flying crane style, the cat stance is always used but hardly seen. Long punches become short and hand techniques are so fast as to be hard to identify (well, if one is skilled). So there are two factors at work: 1-Are the techniques being used; 2- Does the person looking have the knowledge and background to determine whether or not it is so?

11- If your school claims to do traditional martial arts but does not have regular sparring… that is…odd😃

More to come!

Peace and happiness!

Sage Advice for Martial Artists

Sifu Lorne Bernard, Director of the Shaolin White Crane Academy in Quebec, shares with us his short article on the importance of keeping a martial journal. We highly recommend Sifu Bernard’s Shaolin White Crane book and DVDs, all available on Plum, and look forward to his new DVD in the series, that should be available here soon.

One of the things I appreciate greatly about my Shifu Lee joo-Chian was how he insisted I learn and write down the names and steps of all my routines. He argued traditional styles have names for a reason and that writing down routines was essential. So, I painstakingly learned “kung fu Chinese” if you wish and made up my own way to Romanise or transcribe the words. We wrote down every single routine I learned. My Shifu often said that this was a key to training as it forced us to reflect upon the routines and the art.
Now that he is gone, I realize what a treasure this is as without these notes a great deal would have been lost. When I forget a routine, I can just brush up with my notes its very easy to do…
 
These notes or books are central to our knowledge as are (this is important) the secret details (or keys) not openly shared. Old school Chinese masters were afraid to write it all down so one had to know the little details or keys that were implicit in the written word. Of course training mind, body and spirit are also necessary. After all talk is cheap.
 
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
 
Une des choses que j’apprécie beaucoup au sujet de mon Shifu Lee joo-Chian était la façon dont il a insisté pour que j’apprenne à écrire les noms de mouvements de toutes mes routines. Il a soutenu que les styles traditionnels ont des noms pour une raison et que l’écriture des routines était essentielle. Donc, j’ai soigneusement appris le chinois nécessaire pour le kung fu s et créer ma propre façon de romaniser ou de transcrire les mots. Nous avons écrit toutes les routines que j’ai apprises. Mon Shifu disait souvent que c’était une clé de la formation car cela nous obligeait à réfléchir sur les routines et l’art.
Maintenant qu’il est parti, je me rends compte à quel point c’est un trésor car sans ces notes beaucoup aurait été perdu. Quand j’oublie une routine, je peux juste rafraîchir avec mes notes son très facile à faire ….
Ces notes ou livres sont au cœur de nos connaissances, tout comme (c’est important) les détails secrets (ou clés) qui ne sont pas ouvertement partagés. Les maîtres chinois de vieille école avaient peur d’écrire tout cela ainsi on devait connaître les petits détails ou les clefs qui étaient implicites dans le mot écrit.
Bien sûr, la formation de l’esprit, le corps et l’esprit sont également nécessaires. Après la pratique est importante!😎
