I had these T-Shirts made of as a gag gift for Ernie when I was training with him about 1981 of 1982.
There is no Northern Tai Eagle system, I just made that up.
Because I was studying Yang Long Fist Tai Chi with him,
And form studies from other Chinese Systems.
Northen Eagle Claw - Faan Tzi Ying Jow Pai
Tam Tuie, Power Fist,
Northern Preying Mantis – Slip in and Hit- Sip Jow Jing- (Chau Chi)
Nothern Shaolin – Dune De Kuen, Peng Tsu Dune Kuen
Pai Lum – Pai Lum Kuen , Supple Dragon
A Leopard form, Staff form, Short Staff Form
I was not studying a system, except for my tai chi studies,
Instead studying a range of forms to better understand the Chinese arts,
At first to become a more knowledgable judge, but in time just to study and learn.
I joked that he should have been teaching me a system,
So I created one using the names of my major studies with him.
