Chinese Studies

Once upon a time I studied the Chinese Arts with Ernest Rothrock Laoshi.

I already was studying Yang Long Fist Tai Chi Chaun with him and wished to understand the Chinese Arts better as I often had to judge Chinese forms. For a period of five years I studied various forms from him.

Through diligent research I've found close versions of those forms to share with my students. They are not 100% identical to my studies but are close enough to allow understanding of what I studied.

Northern Shaolin (Sil Lum)
Duen Da Chaun

Northern Mantis (Tai Tong Long)

Chin Woo
Tan Tui

Chin Woo
Gong Li Quan

Faan Tzi Ying Jow Pai
Shi Lu Xing Quan (行拳) is known as the "Walking Fist."

Just a small point. The versions I learned from Rothrock Laoshi used deeper stances and more dynamic body mechanics. But the techniques shown are reasonably close to the ones I studied.
