I spoke to Alex today. Serge Augier's teacher was Master Huang.
Serge's credentials are totally legit as his is lineage.
Definitely no fibs there !
Looking for something called "Northern Long Fist."
Northern longfist is a branch/family rather than a specific style. It refers to longarm systems typically of Shaolin or Hui origin.
If you're after info on a particular school, post a thread with some details on the main Kung Fu board.
WTF is a "grand-disciple"???????
Contact the guy I mentioned; Liang Chao Qun in France, he is a genuine recognised disciple of the late Master Wan, ask him about Serge attending his workshop a few years back.
why did you delete my post?
The disciple of the disciple of that guy? Kinda like grandson maybe?
nice list but what about kajukenbo? i see u have Wun Hop Kuen Do listed but what about chuan fa and tum pai they are kung-fu styles also
Chuan fa is not a kung fu stlye it is a generic term that can apply to any style. It's just one of many ways to say martial arts in Chinese. Kajenbuko isn't a Chinese art. It's more like Kempo.
Quan Fa (Chuan Fa in the fool spelling) just means "Fist Method" in Chinese.
chuan fa is the American way of spelling it just like kung-fu or chi-kung.chinese its gung-fu or qi gong,they changed the spelling so we could read the name in English,nothing retarded about that at all..
your wrong about that chuan fa could mean fist way,kenpo,chinese boxing or plain and simple just kung-fu...chuan fa kajukenbo was created when they mixed northern and southern shaolin styles with kajukenbo,so yes it is kung-fu....btw im not trying to argue with anyone im just sticking up for my art not many people know about it because there is not much info on the internet about it
I could NOT care less about Kajukenbo, nor am I picking on anyone's art.
I am saying the goddamn CHARACTER FOR QUAN FA does not even mean martial art.
Quan Fa =/= Wushu =/= Kung Fu
They are interchangeable words but ultimately they are all slightly different, if we want to go into semantics.
Don't argue Chinese with me man, you're going to lose.
Quan Fa DOES NOT translate to "Chinese Boxing." Actually nothing translates to "Chinese Boxing."
Unless you say "Zhong Guo Quan Ji," which is quite long and the direct translate to "Chinese Boxing."
Quan Fa means Fist Method, nothing more, nothing less.
Stop attaching your personal definition to it.
ok well maybe your right because i dont speak or wright chinese thanks for the lesson,but that does not change the fact that it is a kung-fu style and belongs in the list and im sure that there's other people on this site that agree with me and it dont matter what u think the moderator can decide not you. like i said im not arguing with nobody so there's no reason for you to get mad
No it's not. Before the Chinese government adopted the pinyin romanization they used to use the wade giles romanization. Many of the teachers who teach outside of China left before the change or spent most of their lives learning that system before the change and therefor still use it. In taiwan they still use that system. It's no more or less Chinese than pinyin. It's no more or less retarded either. It's certainly not the American way either it's just the way many Americans were taught.
No I'm not. Chuan means fist and fa means technique or method. It's a generic term that can be swapped out for any other generic term meaning martial arts.
If I take a bunch of techniques from a bunch of different chuan fa styles and blend them with a style that it not Chinese it does not make it a kung fu style.
In Wade-Giles it's spelt "ch'uan".Note apostrophe.
Signed-Just another fool.
Hsiao Chiu Tien (Little Nine Heaven). I've heard of it.
I'm also wondering why this list doesn't contain Chin Na, a subset of Kung fu that deals with holds and locks and other techniques
Because it's a subset not a style. Chin na or cum na is the joint locking/choking/cavity press skills that are found in every style of kung fu when taught by a proper and qualified instructor, it is not a seperate style of it's own.
Separate names with a comma.
