    Anybody know anything about Fuzhou Tiger Boxing and its Forms

    This Fuzhou Tigerboxing has 6 forms does anybody know anything about it or its forms or know of any teachers who teach it ?

  2. #2
    The name of the Style is "Hu Zun Quan" [Tiger Conquering Fist] it is the traditional Tiger style of Fujian. Quantity of forms is not important but lets just say we have 4 real forms and others developed in the last few hundred years, some emphasis powers or 5 elements and others are technique based.
    Eg.
    SanZhan, WuBen, LiaoZhuen, BakuaChui, 16LienBu, 36, 72, 108, MengHu, HeiHu, BaiHu etc....

    This is taught in FuZhou but also in other areas nearby, there are minor differences but most descend their art from Ancestor Zhou a great famous teacher of Fujian.

    The art is also found in Singapore/Malaysia and Australia.
    It is also said to have influenced Uechi Ryu Karate in the past well only at the basic level.

    The most important set is SanZhan (3 Battles) it is the most basic and most advanced form and is also the Qigong training form as a prerequisite to learning "iron body" for those that wish to.

    I will be in FuZhou very soon to study Ji quan (Chicken Fist) from my uncle who is a grandstudent of Master Zhou, and thus specialises in the 7 arts of Fuzhou (Chicken, Dog, Tiger.....etc)

    My students in Australia are also practitioners of 'HuZunQuan'. The art is practical and efficient nothing for show, it is a hard powerful style emphasising maiming attacks with pure unstoppable strength.

    Unfortunately I don't have the time or resources to complete the work on our website ..... but in a few months all our archives will be placed back into the site.....at the moment the site is empty.

    It is www.authenticshaolin.com :

    It will include information on many rare styles (well rare in the west but popular in China) of the following :
    Fujian (Tiger, Dragon, Chicken, Dog, Confucius, Fish, etc..)
    Wudang (ZhaoBaoTJQ, Wudang TJQ, TaiYiWuXing)
    Chuo Jiao, Fan Zi, Zui Ba Xian, Mi Zong, etc .............

    These are the systems that are practised & taught by members of Team ASI in Sydney, Australia and soon in NanChang, China.
    Currently I am in China for around 1-3 years, so I will posting as required.

    For information or to be informed of when the site will be uploaded, please send an email (introduce yourself) to : sifu@authenticshaolin.com and I will add you to the mailing list

    Regards,

    Wu Chan Long

    Shaolin Master,
    Do you happen to know this website: www.wushuscholar.com

    They carry videos (gotta subscribe though) of southern styles from Fuzhou, ZhangZhou, YongChun, and I remember having seen some (I juts saw the comments, since I didn't subscribe) about dog, chicken and many more.

    Do you know the masters? What do you think in case you have seen the vids? Just wondering...

    Thanks in advance for your reply
    Risk 0 doesn't exist.

    First time to see the site, thanks for the link.

    Well, I am poor so as you know $15US is about 125Y and on that much I can eat for almost a month [China doesn't pay too well]

    But I went through some names and I have heard of the following :

    Zhang Jing Wu (Luohan)
    Ruan Dong (Ming He)
    Yu Wen Zhong (Shi He)

    They are well known, as I have not seen the vid clips I can't say ....if only we had a free browse that would be good .

    However, it seems like a very interesting site and an excellent step forward for the Fujian martial arts community.

    Cheers,
    Wu Chan Long

    Hi Shaolin Master,
    What is the connection between Fujian dragon and Dongjiang dragon?
    Thank you in advance.

    Narval,

    DongJiang LongXingQuan is highly influenced by KeJia concepts that were manifested in the are initially by the teachings of Hai Feng. Although Hai Feng's were originated from the fujian regions it was a different specialty to that of the Fujian dragon style which flourished in other areas. Da Yu He Xiang was said to be related to the same school of thought as Hai Feng, it is for this reason that the skills of MoQiao, BuBuTui, etc remained consistent fundamentals as both Lin Yu Guai's family and his later skills had invariant similarities. Therefore it could be said that the KeJia DongJiang LongXingMoQiaoQuan is a different manifestation and that both styles share similarities only in name not in skill nor specialisation. Of course this is not absolute as in particular plateaus of martial attainment most styles can be found to contain a similar root. In addition there are two styles of Dragon in Fujian, to discuss those we would need another thread.

    Regards
    Wu Chan Long

    Pandora's box

    Une vraie boite de Pandore pour toi ma foi, c'est histoires de Dragon! Super intéressant!

    Peut-etre vont-il aider a consolider ou a détruire ta theorie générale sur la construction theorique de l'ensemble des arts martiaux à la fin du 19eme siècle !

    ;-)

    Disons plutôt que qu’avant cette époque (“avant” je signifiant pas nécessairement "jusqu’à”... who knows...), je ne suis pas certain que la sociologie des arts martiaux et leur mode de transmission principalement oral aient facilité la formalisation et la diffusion d’un corpus théorique comme celui auquel tu te réfères.

    Je crois en revanche volontiers que les arts martiaux ayant été exposés à tous les courants de pensée et toutes les techniques (médicales etc.) ayant traversé la société chinoise au cours de sa longue histoire, ils en sont pénetrés de longue date de plein de manières différentes.

    Pour ce qui est de manger, volontiers. Je te passe un coup de tél.
